Borré is to remain in Frankfurt

    Sports director Markus Krösche has made it clear once again that Eintracht Frankfurt’s vice world champion Randal Kolo Muani (24) is not for sale this winter. “No. We made it clear that we don’t want to sell any top performers. There is no reason for that. It will stay that way,” he said of the coveted striker, who is associated with Bayern Munich, Manchester United and AC Milan, among others, in “sky“-Interview. When asked if he would “really reject” an offer of over 100 million euros, Krösche said: “Yes, that’s the way it is!”

    Kolo Muani, who joined SGE on a free transfer in the summer and signed a contract until 2027, has scored five goals and ten assists in 14 league games so far this season, making him the second-best scorer in the German top flight. With a market value increase of 25 million to 37 million euros in 2022, the attacker was one of the rising stars in the Bundesliga. A transfer fee of €100m would be the second-highest in the history of the German House of Lords and would surpass the previous Frankfurt transfer record by €37m.

    Krösche emphasized that Eintracht was “a good place” where young players like Kolo Muani “can develop further. This has changed our perception both nationally and internationally. We are very interesting for young and generally good players. But I wouldn’t count us among the top addresses in Germany.” The transfer of Mario Götze (30) last summer certainly helped again – but not only in terms of standing, according to Krösche especially on the pitch. The ex-Dortmunder raised the Hessians “to another level in terms of football. He is an exceptional footballer.”

    Eintracht: patience with Ndicka & Kamada – lack of understanding for Borré consultants

    The situation remains unclear for Evan Ndicka (23) and Daichi Kamada (26), whose contracts expire in the summer, but Eintracht have offers to extend them, and for Rafael Borré (27), whose agent is currently actively looking for a change urges “I can not quite understand what was said there,” said Krösche in relation to the statements of Martín Araoz, who had denounced that his client did not get the agreed playing time and could therefore lose his place in the Colombian national team. Araoz continued: “River Plate have known for some time about Rafa’s awkward situation, that they don’t respect him because it’s one thing not to play and another to only let him play for three or four minutes. Rafa didn’t deserve it because he achieved a lot last season.”

    Krösche said that he saw no reason to give up Borré: “I think Rafael Borré feels comfortable with us. He’s a very important player for us who will get his playing times. We don’t want to give up Rafael Borré, we want to keep the team together. Therefore, it is not at all important for us to give him away.”

    With regard to the decisions of Kamadas and Ndickas, there will be no ultimatum from the club side, Krösche is “not a friend” of that. The decision that the playmaker and the central defender have to make is very important in this career phase: “We are in close contact with both players and have shown them what place they will take at Eintracht Frankfurt in the future. I understand that it’s an important moment in their careers for both players. You need time. You can get that from us too. As a club, we offer a good environment and good general conditions for further development and success. So there is a lot that speaks for us.”
