Fiete Arp’s time with Bayern Munich has not gone as planned and now the Fritz Walter medal winner could be headed to a new destination in an attempt to revive his career.
There are two reports detailing potential destinations: Holstein Kiel and Hannover 96.
What’s next for Fiete Arp (21)? After the relegation of the second team, the future of the former HSV jewel probably does not lie with FC Bayern. Hannover 96 is interested in the Bayern II high earner, who made 30 appearances with five goals and two assists in the past third division season. Arp’s contract in Munich runs until 2024.
In addition, Holstein Kiel has also shown interest in a loan for Arp per Sport 1 journalist Florian Plettenberg:
News Fiete Arp: @Holstein_Kiel is planning a loan. Talks are ongoing. Kiel is a very interesting option for him. But his management is in talks with other clubs as well. FA has not yet taken a decision. @SPORT1 #FCBayern— Florian Plettenberg (@Plettigoal) June 14, 2021
Should Arp leave Bayern Munich permanently, the club is expected to have to fund his salary. According to Sport Bild, Arp has €15 million of his €25 million contract left to be paid — which will be a lot of salary for the Bavarians to eat :
Logically, 15 of his 25 million salary have not yet been paid. This means: The record champion will give the former Hamburger a two-digit million amount as a severance payment on his new path. The separation between Arp and Bavaria is not officially declared on either side. But both know that Munich is a thing of the past.
The 28-time youth national player has zero prospects for the Bayern professionals. And Bayern II, just relegated from the 3rd division, is not an option for Arp as a regional division.
For the youngster, it’s also about his sporting future. His last year in Hamburg — and in the 24 months at Bayern — there was no further development.
As you can see, the Sport Bild report does not fully commit to a divorce for Arp and Bayern Munich, but things certainly appear to be heading that way.
