Bayern Munich Director Kahn On Inter Owned Perisic: “Might Not Sign Anyone This Summer”

Bayern Munich director Oliver Kahn discussed the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, its effect on the transfer market and the future of Inter owned forward Ivan Perisic in an interview with German broadcaster Sky Sports Deutschland.

“We need to rethink the current model based on the cost of personnel for clubs. I am referring to players’ salaries above all, a very difficult subject to deal with in professional football. Considering the current situation, with revenues set to fall, it will be complicated to maintain certain contracts as they are or even extend them to the same figures. We will have to think carefully about this, at Bayern we are convinced that it is in everyone’s interest.”

Kahn then discussed whether the Bundesliga giants may avoid making any summer signings due to the effects of the Coronavirus.

“It could be an option, at the moment we are considering all possibilities, as other European clubs are doing. I don’t know what you think, but it doesn’t seem to me that there are many clubs willing to invest a lot of money.”

Inter sent the 31-year-old Perisic to Bayern Munich on loan last summer, as coach Antonio Conte didn’t want to include the 2018 World Cup finalist in his future project. The former Borussia Dortmund forward has made 26 appearances across all competitions so far this season, for a total of 1314 minutes. In that time, he has scored five goals and provided eight assists.

Inter and Bayern agreed to include a buy option on Perisic’s loan deal, worth around €20 million. Considering the current situation, the German side have no interest in paying that figure and so a discount is needed if the player is to leave Inter permanently.
