During the press round on Leon Goretzka's contract extension, Hasan Salihamidzic gave an update on another service provider whose contract is about to expire.
Munich - Those responsible at FC Bayern * are already planning the squad for the next few years, and top performers have already been tied to the club in recent weeks.
The long-term extension of Joshua Kimmich's contract was followed by that of his midfield partner Leon Goretzka * on Thursday.
At the press conference on the latest contract extension, Hasan Salihamidzic gave insights into the future plans of the Munich-based company.
FC Bayern Munich: Four contracts expire next summer - including that of a regular player
Four contracts in the professional team are still running out at the end of the young season.
In addition to the working papers of the two substitute keepers Sven Ulreich and Christian Früchtl, the two field players would also expire.
One of them is the former 41.5 million purchase Corentin Tolisso *, who was already considered a farewell candidate at Bayern in the summer.
The Frenchman, who is susceptible to injury, is unlikely to be offered a new contract.
The situation is different with the German national player Niklas Süle *, who is in demand again after the departures of David Alaba and Jerome Boateng.
The 26-year-old is still tied to the record champions until the end of June, but in view of his achievements and his role under Julian Nagelsmann, he too could sign a new contract.
Sports director Salihamidzic commented on the future of the defensive player on Thursday.
“Of course we look how the months go by, we are exchanging ideas,” he said on request.
Otherwise there is the contractual situation regarding "nothing new".
FC Bayern: Niklas Süle has been in Munich for four years - is he now also extending his contract?
In view of the statements from the media round, an extension with Süle seems to be in the works.
Since his move from Hoffenheim in the summer of 2017, which was worth 20 million euros to Bayern, the defender has also developed somewhat erratically, but in recent months he has proven his relevance for the team.
This season he was on the field in every competitive game, only in the 4-1 win at RB Leipzig was the 1.95-meter man not in the starting line-up for Munich.
Should the native of Frankfurt do the same as his national team * colleagues and extend it in the long term, the axis of success would grow by another building block for the coming seasons.
