FOOTBALL – Barça Mercato: Big German defender targeted by top clubs
At the end of his contract with Bayern Munich, the 26-year-old German defender, Niklas Süle, is coveted by Chelsea and Barça.
Niklas Süle on the move
The great German defender will leave Bavaria. He is at the end of his contract with Bayern next June and will not extend it. This is the second defender to leave Munich free in two years after David Alaba last summer to Real Madrid. Arrived free in 2017 from Hoffenheim, Niklas Süle will therefore leave as he came. The native of Frankfurt am Main has experienced everything with Bayern, he won 4 Bundesliga titles, 3 German Cups, 4 German Supercup, 1 Champions League, 1 European Supercup and a World Club Championship title.
Of course, his consistency and progress with Munich opened the doors of the Nationalmannschaft in 2016, he has 36 selections. Often described as a physical player (1m96) and hard on the man, Süle is a very fast defender who does not hesitate to break the lines ball at foot, he represents a colossal loss for his coach Julian Nagelsmann.
Chelsea, Barça and Real interested
A player of the calibre of Niklas Süle logically attracts interest. If the competition will be tough, at the moment, it is Chelsea who holds the rope in the file. The Blues are preparing to lose Andrea Christensen and Antonio Rüdiger in quick succession and Thomas Tuchel has selected the German international to strengthen his defense.
On the other hand, Süle is also of interest to Barça, which is on every cheap opportunity. The Catalans are preparing the succession of Gerard Pique, who is on the end in Catalonia. Finally, Real Madrid is ready to play another trick on the Bavarians after having stolen David Alaba last summer. The arrival of Süle in Madrid would add an element in addition to Nacho, Eder Militao, Jesus Vallejo and David Alaba to Carlo Ancelotti.
