The director of Bayern Munich, Oliver Kahn revealed today that Niklas Zule turned down an offer from the club to extend his contract, which expires at the end of the season.

German media write that the German national team player has already received and accepted the offer of an unnamed club and that he will leave the Bavarian giant next summer.

The problem with Alfonso Davis, who will be out for several months, conditioned the Bayern leadership in the coming days to start looking for a quality solution in defense.

There is interest for three players who would come without compensation in June, two of whom are members of the German national team, Antonio Riediger and Matthias Gunther, as well as Riediger's teammate at Chelsea, Andreas Christensen.

"Bild" writes that the Danish national team player is Bayern's biggest wish, but the defender stressed his intention to stay at Chelsea, if the London club provides him with appropriate conditions and a guarantee that he will be an important part of the team.

- Officially. Niklas Zule will leave Bayern as a free agent at the end of the season, Oliver Kahn confirmed: "Negotiations were long. We made him an offer. "Zule did not accept it." We know Niklas wants to leave the club at the end of the season - announced journalist Fabrizio Romano on his Twitter account.
