It is widely expected that Bayern Munich and Pierre-Emile Højbjerg will be parting ways this summer via mutual consent. Bayern have several players better than Højbjerg, and the midfielder wants a permanent spot in a place where he’s appreciated.

"We will not consider another loan. A good solution now has to be found,” Højbjerg’s agent Søren Lerby said. “Pierre-Emile has learned much with Bayern, Augsburg, and Schalke. Now the time has come when a new, long-term commitment is important. The next stop has to fit."

The rumored transfer fee for Højbjerg has been between €5-7 million. However, Bayern are now looking for around €12 million for the Dane, according to this Bild report. After the transfers of Christoph Kramer (€15m to Borussia Mönchengladbach) and Sebastian Rode (€15m to Borussia Dortmund), Bayern hope that they can capitalize on the current market and make a nice profit.

Højbjerg has spent time at Augsburg and Schalke on loan, but it’s unlikely that he’ll become a regular player of either side. It will be interesting to see if Højbjerg remains in the Bundesliga, or if another European club swoops in for him.
