The long-rumored transfer of Bayern Munich midfielder Angelo Stiller to Hoffenheim looks like it could be close to happening.
Stiller, a 19-year-old defensive-midfielder who has displayed his skill and work ethic while playing for Bayern Munich II, is reportedly “in negotiations” with Hoffenheim and would eventually leave Säbener Straße during the summer transfer window per kicker:
After David Raum (22), who will come from SpVgg Greuther Fürth, Angelo Stiller (19) should also face a free transfer to TSG Hoffenheim next summer. The six already played at FC Bayern II under the current TSG coach. In Munich, Stiller’s contract expires at the end of the season.
Reports started to surface in October that Stiller could potentially leave Bayern Munich, with several big-named suitors in Wolverhampton and Arsenal allegedly kicking the tires on the young German. This week, however, a story about Tiago Dantas’ loan to Bayern Munich shed light on Stiller’s situation. Stiller reportedly let Bayern Munich know at the end of September that he wanted to leave the club, which subsequently pushed the front office to bring in Dantas.
Regardless, a free move to Hoffenheim would be an unfortunate bit of business for Bayern Munich, but would also allow Stiller to play for former Bayern Munich II manager Sebastian Hoeneß.
