Salihamidzic was also asked about Bayern’s interest in signing 18-year-old Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi.
On Tuesday reports claimed that Bayern had offered Chelsea 35 million pounds to sign Hudson-Odoi.

He’s a very interesting player and we really want to sign him. He has qualities that suit our playing style.

Bayern Munich & Franck Ribery
In another significant update, Salihamidzic confirmed that Franck Ribery will be leaving Bayern in the summer.
Ribery has recently been fined after he had an outburst on social media following blowback from eating a ‘golden steak’ at Salt Bae’s eatery in Dubai.
