Bayern Munich center-back Niklas Süle has been the subject of transfer rumors since last summer, but it appears that many people at the club want the Germany international to stay with the team.

After his strong performance against Dynamo Kyiv, Süle earned rave reviews from his coach and fans alike.

“Niki played very focused, especially in position he has never played for me. He did that very well. He had a very good offensive drive. I am happy when the fans cheer the players and not whistle. It’s much more pleasant for everyone,” said Nagelsmann (as captured by Bild). [Niki said that it was all family from Frankfurt who cheered for him. Seriously, I’m happy when the players get recognition.”

Another person who was impressed with Süle was goalkeeper Manuel Neuer.

“The fans like him. They want him to remain a Bayern player. We are glad we have him. He is a very important factor for us and performed well,” Neuer said.

Chelsea, Tottenham Hotspur, Arsenal, and Manchester United were all considered to be potential suitors for Süle, who has been fantastic so far this season.
