No concern about Boateng's contract expiration

The German defender's contract will expire at the end of the season, but the club has no worries about that.

Bayern Munich sporting director Hassan Salihimdzic emphasizes that there is no problem with the Boateng contract expiring.

Boateng, who joined Bayern from Manchester City in 2011, has played a crucial role in Bayern's success over the years. Together with the Bavarians, he has won eight Bundesliga titles and two Champions League titles. However, his contract will expire at the end of the season, and in recent days, there have been many rumors about his possible separation. Some media outlets reported his transfer at the end of the season, and he announced that he was looking for a new challenge outside of Europe. However, Salihamidzic believes that there is no concern about Boateng's contract extension and his continued presence in Bayern.

"We all know that Jerome has a contract until June 30th, 2021 and we will talk to Jerome and his management at a reasonable time and make a fair decision for everyone," Salihamidzic told Sky Sport Germany. "This is not an issue for us at the moment."

German national team suffered a 6-0 defeat to Spain in their recent match, and criticism of Joachim Loew rose sharply. However, Salihamidzic believes that Bayern will return to their good days.

"Of course the lads haven't seen games like this often or not at all, but they're professional enough," he said. "I'm not worried that things won't go on for them like the way it ended in Dortmund."
