Matthias Sammer,sporting director for Bayern Munich was mysterious when he talked about the possibility of signing Granit Xhaka.
Rumor has it the midfielder is to be a replacement for Alonso, but Sammer says he is one of the players the club is monitoring.
“Xhaka is a good player, no need to talk about that. But I am surprised by the directness [of today’s reports],” said Sammer.
“As Bayern Munich of course you take a look at a team like Gladbach which are winning everything at the moment. But I could tell you 20 other players as well.”
