Bayern ready to cash in on Shaqiri, confirms Beckenbauer

According to the club legend, the Bundesliga champions are prepared to sell the versatile attacker if a good offer comes in the winter transfer window

Bayern Munich’s honorary president Franz Beckenbauer has conceded the club are likely to let Xherdan Shaqiri move on in January.

Shaqiri, 23, has been restricted to just three Bundesliga starts so far this season, while each of his four appearances in the Champions League have come as a substitute.

The Switzerland international’s continued lack of game time has led to speculation over his future and Beckenbauer expects Shaqiri to find a new club when the transfer window reopens in January.

“Bayern have already sent out a signal and indicated to him that he can probably go in the winter break, when he wants,” he 69-year-old told Sky.

“I think it’s a shame because he is a great talent.”

Shaqiri, who joined Bayern from Basel in 2012, has been heavily linked with a move to Serie A. Juventus and Inter are allegedly keeping a close eye on his situation at the Allianz Arena.

The attacker has a contract with the Bundesliga champions until the summer of 2016.
