When asked if he had spoken with Bayern Munich sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic, Schlotterbeck played coy.
“I will neither say yes nor no. I don’t have to comment on everything,” Schlotterbeck told Sport Bild (as captured by @iMiaSanMia). “I’ve always dreamed of playing in the Bundesliga as a kid. I’m doing that now. But if at some point I get an attractive offer from England or Spain, I would of course look at it”
Sport Bild then pressed Schlotterbeck about Borussia Dortmund and, again, the newly-minted Germany international wouldn’t fall into the trap of letting something leak.
“When successful clubs — whether in Germany or abroad — are interested in me, that’s attractive. Just as it was extremely attractive for me to sign for Freiburg 4 years ago”
Hilariously, Sport Bild even question Schlotterbeck about who he recently unfollowed on Instagram — with one of the fish Schlotterbeck threw back into the “Instagram Sea” being Bayern Munich.
“I used to follow a lot of big clubs on Instagram & I decided to reduce the list. I definitely didn’t want to fuel rumors because of that. But it shows that even my account is being watched closely,” Schlotterbeck said.
