Hasan Salihamidzic confirms departure of Kenan Yildiz

Sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic from FC Bayern Munich has confirmed the departure of 17-year-old midfield talent Kenan Yildiz.

“Yildiz is a talented young player who we would have liked to have accompanied further on his way. However, we could not and did not want to meet his financial demands. That is why Yildiz will unfortunately leave us,” said Salihamidzic picture.

According to information from SPOX and GOAL, Juventus are close to signing Yildiz. The youngster is supposed to support the Primavera team, but he also has chances for Serie C in the U23 team. Previously, FC Barcelona was also considered interested.

Yildiz has been trained at FC Bayern since 2012. Last season he played seven league games (nine points) for the U17s and eight (five points) for the U19s.
