Crystal Palace midfielder Max Meyer is facing ‘extremely chaotic months’ at the club with his future up in the air.
The German joined the Eagles on a free transfer from Schalke in 2018 but has struggled to assert himself in Roy Hodgson’s plans.
Most of his 18 months with Crystal Palace so far have seen him limited to a substitute role at best, a situation he is far from happy about.
He has long been linked with moving elsewhere and according to Der Westen, ‘it is quite possible’ that Crystal Palace will look to sell him in the summer.
With his contract expiring in 2021, this year will be the last summer window in which Palace can get money for the German.
He ‘probably would have anything against’ finding a new club, as his chances of regular appearances at Crystal Palace are ‘extremely bad’.
However, there is a ‘big problem’ standing in Meyer’s way; an ankle injury picked up against Arsenal four weeks ago.
The injury means he cannot offer himself to other clubs and thus he is becoming ‘less interesting’ to any potential suitors.
Not that there are many keen on Meyer’s signature anyway, with it explained that there are not any ‘ambitious’ clubs in Europe’s top leagues that are interested in signing the midfielder.
If that doesn’t change in the summer, it can’t be ruled out that Meyer stays at Selhurst Park on his ‘well-paid contract’ and runs it down before searching for a new club in 2021.
