Hojbjerg looks to Lahm example as he considers Bayern future

The highly-rated youngster is ready to leave the Bundesliga champions but is open to a return in the future

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg has admitted that he could leave Bayern Munich on loan and return to the club at a later stage of his career.

The Denmark international recently stated that he wants to leave the Bundesliga champions in order to get regular first-team football, having made just 19 appearances since arriving in 2012.

Players such as Philipp Lahm, Toni Kroos and David Alaba all left Bayern temporarily before eventually returning to the club later on and Hojbjerg believes he could follow suit.

“I have always said that I want to stay at Bayern as long as possible. But a young player has to take the next step in his career at some point. I am very grateful to Bayern, so it’s hard to say what the future has in store,” Hojbjerg told AZ.

“I remember the career paths of Lahm, Kroos and Alaba. I am considering my options.

“My agent will sit down with Bayern to discuss matters and I can say what will happen after that. It also depends on what the club and the coach have in mind.

“Bayern are the biggest club in the world and have the best team in the world.”

The 19-year-old, who has made eight appearances in all competitions so far this season, has a contract with Bayern until the summer of 2019.
