Stuttgart’s sports director Sven Mislintat assumes that his top striker Sasa Kalajdzic will say goodbye in the summer. “It would be great if we could keep Sasa as a player and as a guy on our team, but I don’t think that’s very likely,” Mislintat said sports picture.
The Austrian is under contract with the Bundesliga club until 2023. Among other things, Bayern Munich wants to sign Kalajdzic (24) as a replacement for Robert Lewandowski. A fee of up to 25 million euros is under discussion.
VfB, who secured their place in the league at the last minute, can clearly use the money. “Despite all the euphoria that arose at the weekend, we should remain 100 percent humble. We have to generate a significant transfer surplus again this summer,” said Mislintat.
According to the VfB sports director, “unfortunately, this always goes hand in hand with a loss of sporting substance. In the long term, we should be able to break this cycle in order to have to generate significantly less income from transfers”.
Therefore, according to Mislintat, “nothing other than the renewed goal of staying in the league is realistic for him. Especially when you consider the quality of the promoted players who have already been promoted”.
