The contract situation with Bayern Munich defender Niklas Süle is slowly getting worryingly complicated. Süle’s contract is running out in 2022, and so far, Bayern has not taken a firm stance on a contract extension.

Süle has also expressed his worries over his contract situation at Bayern, but CEO Oliver Kahn recently elaborated that a decision could be made soon, as the board members want to set a deadline for Süle’s contract extension.

Kahn sounds optimistic and sees no reason why Niklas Süle would want to leave Bayern, but indicated that setting a deadline for Süle is “quite conceivable.” Kahn told Sport Bild (as captured by Abendzeitung) that Bayern is economically stable and offers a lot for every player. He added that Bayern has a fantastic squad that could win every trophy, and the city itself is very beautiful. Kahn added that it’s very hard to find a combination like that in Europe.

Süle, who has been loosely linked to Chelsea in recent weeks, has recently recovered from an injury setback and should be back in the squad facing SC Freiburg on Saturday. This will come in handy for Hansi Flick, as Tangui Nianzou is suspended for the next two matches.
