Sport Mediaset reports on the current situation in the Shaqiri negotiations.
“Bayern Munich has not yet responded to the offer of Inter in regards to Xherdan Shaqiri,” reveals the network. “There is still optimism for the success of the Nerazzurri negotiations. In this case, tomorrow could be a crucial day for the closing of the deal. Expect possible developments in the coming hours. But it certainly remains to be said that the club (Inter) has already reached an agreement with the Swiss player.”
Author’s note: Stalling? Waiting to see if there won’t be one last-gasp offer from Liverpool? The fact that Bayern has not replied is not dooming, although it is not ideal either. Either they don’t like the offer and are biding for time to see other offers, or are seriously considering it and preparing a final counter-offer, bonuses they wish tied on, etc. Maybe both. Probably both. They have not yet rejected the offer, and had they replied positively, the deal would have been completed today. Unless a reply comes in the next hour or two, expect the Inter leaders to wait until tomorrow to travel to Bavaria. Bayern flies to Doha, Qatar on Friday, January 9th and negotiations are aimed to be closed before then latest.
