Hasan Salihamidzic announces talks with Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting

Bayern’s sports director Hasan Salihamidzic has announced talks with striker Eric Maxim Choupo Moting about extending his contract with the German record champions.

“I contacted his agent. We’ll meet at some point and talk about it. Now we have a little time and we’re trying to find a solution. I hope that’s possible,” said Salihamidzic after the 2-0 win Bayern versus FC Schalke 04.

The recent good performances by Choupo-Moting speak for themselves, the Bayern sports director continued. “The way he’s presented is excellent. We need him and we’re glad he’s here until the end of the season and then we hope he wants to stay with us. I think he’s here comfortable. We will do everything within our means.”

The striker also commented on possible talks about a contract extension, but did not give any indication of a trend. “We had one more game today. Now the World Cup is coming, then we’ll see what happens,” said Choupo-Moting after the Schalke game, in which he contributed a goal.

He himself is currently particularly pleased that he can help the team: “I’m glad we won. We were very efficient today. I scored the goal right after the break and we defended well throughout the game. “

Choupo-Moting is under contract with FC Bayern until June 2023. With 14 goals (11 goals, three assists), he is one of the top performers for Bayern Munich this season.

FCB recently extended the contracts of Josip Stanišić and Sven Ulreich.
