Shaqiri agent hints at Bayern move


The agent of Basel young star Xherdan Shaqiri has hinted the midfielder could be looking to move to Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich.
Shaqiri is currently regarded as one of the hottest prospects in Europe and has been regularly linked with many of the continent's top sides, including Liverpool and Manchester United.
However, Bayern have long been regarded as leading the chase for his signature, and that now appears to be the case after the player's agent and brother, Erdin Shaqiri, revealed Germany is the likeliest destination when the Basel midfielder decides to leave the club.
"Right now, Bayern is the best club for Xherdan [to join], but it is clear he can only develop further abroad," Erdin Shaqiri told Basler Zeitung.
"He must take the step this summer, because to play four times [seasons] in the Swiss league against the same teams isn't enough [for his development].
Nonetheless, he was keen to assert no official contact had been made between player and club.
"There have been some requests that weren't serious. Munich have contacted neither myself not Xherdan."
Still only 20, Shaqiri has already earned 17 caps for Switzerland, scoring four goals in the process.
