Bayern Munich rules out Trippier transfer

Bayern Munich sporting director Christoph Freund has confirmed that the club will not be making a move for Kieran Trippier in the January transfer window.

“That’s it,” Freund told Sky Sports Germany. “We only do things that we are 100% convinced of. All the parameters have to be right for the player, for us and for the selling club, and that wasn’t the case with Trippier. It’s done.”

The news comes as a blow to Bayern, who had been linked with a move for the England international for several weeks. Trippier, who plays for Newcastle United, is seen as a potential replacement for Benjamin Pavard, who has been struggling for form this season.

However, Freund did offer some hope for Bayern fans on another transfer target, Nordi Mukiele. The Leipzig defender has been linked with a move to the Allianz Arena for several months, and Freund said that there is still a chance of a deal happening.

“Yes,” he said when asked if there was still hope for a Mukiele transfer.

Freund also addressed the upcoming departure of technical director Marco Neppe, who is set to leave the club at the end of the season.

“The contract has not yet been terminated,” he said. “I have worked well with Marco. Before, the situation was a bit simpler. We’ll see what the next few weeks bring.”
