Bayern Munich are not interested in a move for Liverpool midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum this summer, even if he leaves on a free as expected.
That’s according to BILD journalist Christian Falk, who says the German giants and new manager Julian Nagelsmann want to improve in other areas of the team.
Wijnaldum has been linked with a move to Bayern this week, with his contract at Liverpool set to expire in the summer.
Those reports indicated that Nagelsmann is a big fan of the Dutchman and wants him to make the move to the Allianz Arena when he leaves Liverpool.
That saw his agent come out and comment on the rumours, telling the Bundesliga champions to make him and his client an offer if they are genuinely interested.
It appears as if that is unlikely to happen, though, with Falk insisting the interest simply isn’t there in the midfielder.
“That’s not true,” he told BILD.
“I have asked around both in Leipzig as well as at Bayern about the Liverpool player, and there is nothing to it.
“Bayern doesn’t want to pay for him; even if his contract expires, the costs are relatively high.
“Julian Nagelsmann sees a need in the squad, that is true, but rather in the wide areas and forward positions.”
