Emre Can will make a decision on whether to join Juventus or Bayern Munich in the coming days, according to Gazzetta Dello Sport.
What started as days, has turned into months, and then eventually turned an age. Can’s contract dispute with Liverpool and where he’ll end up after his contract expires has been one of the longest sagas in recent Liverpool years. Better late than never, but never late is better – so a decision needs to be made immediately, by the German midfielder.
A collection of pulling factors Emre has to consider before formulating a decision; Bayern making inevitable changes to management and Juventus getting knocked out at an earlier stage than the Reds in the Champions League knockout stages and offering less money.
Bayern Munich will always be the dream move for any German player. It’s the same as any Spaniard or South American wanting to play for Barcelona or Real Madrid.
Working in Bayern’s favour; As Gazzetta Dello Sport’s has reported, Leon Goretzka makes his way on a free at the end of the season, motivating Can’s move to Germany.
Knowing he will play together with his countryman could be the ultimate deciding factor – something their national team will relish and perhaps push for.
The Germany international gives the impression, Liverpool still has a good hand after his reluctant nature to not resolve the issue involving three clubs now. Klopp and his men have enjoyed a great follow-up campaign. Looking increasingly likely they will make it back-to-back Champions League campaigns, with a chance to finish a spot higher than last season. Along with this – a Champions League semifinal, and a better salary offer at the Reds.
This could be tormenting the German. The money being offered by Juventus could justify it’s not about the money for Can. This brings only one thing to mind, the much eluded silverware the Reds have been lacking.
All together, happily a decision will be made as suggested by the tabloids. The fans have grown frustrated as this will help establish if Liverpool has planned without him, or have they been sitting ducks, waiting for a decision to made. All while getting a late jump on other possible replacements.
