Kevin Trapp will not switch from Eintracht Frankfurt to FC Bayern to replace Manuel Neuer. SBU manager Markus Krösche has now made this unmistakably clear. Rather, he believes that his agents are behind the explosive speculation.
“It’s a story made up by the consultants, complete nonsense,” sports director Markus Krösche swept all rumors off the table in an interview with the “Wiesbadener Kurier”. Instead of a short-term farewell, the club is currently working on keeping Kevin Trapp in the long term.
“Bild” had previously reported that the 32-year-old was also one of FC Bayern’s candidates to close the gap caused by captain Manuel Neuer’s injury. The people of Munich are said to have already asked the Trapp camp whether they could imagine a change. So far, however, there has not been an official request from Eintracht.
Krösche therefore senses that his consulting agency is trying to build up pressure before the contract talks. Frankfurt’s Eintracht found themselves in a similar situation when an alleged offer from Manchester United made the rounds before the season started.
Eintracht Frankfurt is hoping for an extension from Kevin Trapp
The national player’s current contract runs until 2024. On the Main they hope to be able to convince Trapp to extend his contract, which will probably end his career with the Adlerträger. He could then work in a different role for the 2022 Europa League winners.
Bayern sports director Hasan Salihamidzic had recently revealed to “Sport Bild” that the club was examining “various scenarios”. In Sven Ulreich, Munich only have one experienced goalkeeper in their squad.
Alexander Nübel, who is on loan from FC Bayern to AS Monaco until the summer, and Yann Sommer from Borussia Mönchengladbach, whose contract expires at the end of June, were mentioned in the media as replacement candidates for Neuer.
