The English U17 international Emran Soglo (16) recently completed a two-week trial training session on the FC Bayern campus. But nothing will come of a move to Munich.
According to information from SPOX and Goal, the campus officials have decided against signing the versatile offensive player.
After all, the trainers on campus gave the talent mostly positive feedback after his appearances at the U17 and U19 teams, which was a surprising decision. Soglo, who can be used in the central midfield as well as on the flanks, also assumed after his departure from Munich that he would serve there again soon.
In the end, however, those responsible were obviously not completely convinced of the overall package of sporting performance and economic effort and did not continue the discussions with the players’ side.
Soglo, who had been to Munich with his mother, is now back in his home town of London, where he had played for Chelsea until the end of the day. The left-footer turned down a contract extension with the Blues in order to move to a club where he can move up to the professional sector more quickly in the near future. There had been contact with FC Bayern since November, and the German record champions were his first option.
A transfer within England can now be assumed. Soglo, who has both English and French citizenship, is courted by six clubs. In the event of a transfer, Chelsea beckons a training compensation of around one million pounds.
