FC Bayern will have one less Salihamidzic on the payroll in the coming months, because the 19-year-old son of sports director Hasan Salihamidzic, who goes by the name Nick and plays in the offspring of the German soccer record champions, will apparently be loaned to Canada somewhat surprisingly .
Six championships, four DFB Cup victories and the Champions League triumph in 2001: Nick Salihamidzic probably also dreams of these titles, which his dad collected during his active time at FC Bayern. The now 19-year-old right-back has been wearing the jersey of the German series champion since the summer of 2015. At that time he came from the SpVgg Unterhaching youth team, where he took his first steps.
In Munich, the defender went through all youth teams, most recently playing for the club’s U19s and U23s. But now things should continue for Salihamidzic in Canada. “Bild” and “transfermarkt.de” report this in unison. There, Salihamidzic is expected to gain more experience on loan from the Vancouver Whitecaps, the club from which Alphonso Davies moved to Bayern Munich in 2019.
The Vancouver Whitecaps play in the North American professional league MLS. However, Salihamidzic will probably not play for the professional team immediately, but will approach the farm team, the Whitecaps 2, in the MLS Next Pro. However, it is understood that the right-back will train alongside the MLS stars.
FC Bayern should extend with Salihamidzic
According to “transfermarkt.de” information, the Salihamidzic side is currently in advanced talks with those responsible for the Canada club. An agreement seems only a matter of time.
However, in order to be loaned to Canada at all, the defender’s contract with FC Bayern must first be adjusted. The current working paper of the son of the sports director is only dated until summer 2023. Means: If Nick Salihamidzic is to be carefully built up overseas, Munich would have to extend him to at least 2024, possibly even longer.
In Vancouver, Salihamidzic could count on the help of his sister Selina. According to “Bild”, the 21-year-old is studying there.
At FC Bayern, the right defender was only temporarily in the limelight due to various injuries in the past season, completed two games in the Bavarian Regionalliga for the U23 and six games in the U19 Bundesliga South/Southwest.
