Bayern Munich remain optimistic that Serge Gnabry will extend his contract despite rumours that the winger could move to Chelsea, according to Sport Bild.
The 26-year-old has been heavily linked with a move to Stamford Bridge as Chelsea look to add reinforcements to their attack. Whilst being on the verge of signing Raheem Sterling from Manchester City, Chelsea have also submitted interest in Gnabry.
It’s reported that the German international did not accept Bayern’s salary offer of €19m a year with his contract due to expire in 2023. Despite the heavy interest and links with a move, Bayern remain confident that Gnabry will extend his contract and stay at the club.
In contrast to reports in England, Sport Bild writes that the player has no interest in joining Chelsea having already played for their rival club Arsenal. Clubs such as Manchester City and Real Madrid are also said to be monitoring Gnabry’s situation.
During his first season under Julian Nagelsmann, Gnabry scored 14 and created six in 34 Bundesliga games.
