Bayern Munich has decided to end their interest in Newcastle right-back Kieran Trippier in the January transfer window.
Bayern’s sporting director Christoph Freund has confirmed that they have decided to end their pursuit of Kieran Trippier in January.
Bayern first submitted a loan bid to Newcastle, their second bid was in the region of €8 million, and the third bid was for €15m. Newcastle rejected all of Bayern’s approaches and insisted they don’t want to sell Trippier in January.
Freund told Sky Germany: “The Kieran Trippier issue is over. We only do what we are 100 percent convinced of.”
The 33-year-old England international was the first signing made by Newcastle following the Saudi Arabia-backed takeover, joining from Atletico Madrid. He is under contract at the club until the summer of 2025.
Bayern’s sporting director also confirmed the club still is interested in signing PSG’s Nordi Mukiele on a loan deal.
After a shock home defeat against Werder Bremen, Bayern Munich managed to beat Union Berlin with one goal at home on Wednesday night. Tuchel’s side now is four points behind Leverkusen after 18 matches.
