Munich sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic addresses Chelsea transfer rumours for world class defender

Bayern Munich sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic insists that there is no issue with Jerome Boateng’s contract, with Chelsea linked with a transfer move.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard may have spent a ton of money in the transfer window and brought in the players that have managed to turn this Blues side into real title contenders this season.

But there is still some need for the club legend to ask for a bit more money and add a bit more depth to this Chelsea squad, especially with the COVID-19 still lingering around the world and the fear of constant injuries from all the games the players are having to play

That has led to some speculation in the media that Chelsea are actually interested in trying to secure a deal for Boateng, who has been linked with a move away from Bayern over the past few weeks as all indications suggest that they are open to letting the German leave.

However, Salihamidzic, hopes to keep the 32-year-old defender in Munich, where the club hope he can add to his 333 appearances taken in across nine years.

“We all know that Jerome has a contract until June 30th, 2021 and we will talk to Jerome and his management at a reasonable time and make a fair decision for everyone,” Salihamidzic told Sky Sport Germany. “This is not an issue for us at the moment.”

Look, Boateng has been world class for the Germans for many seasons, now, but he is not the right type of player for this Chelsea side and it may come as a relief to fans that he is more likely to stay in the Bundesliga than make the move back to the Premier League

A few years ago he would have been a very good signing for the club, but those days have gone
