Diego Contento Won't Leave Bayern Munich In January

Posted by admin on Wednesday, 26 January 2011

Diego Contento is part of Bayern's future plans, according to his agent.
Bayern Munich starlet Diego Contento will not leave Bayern Munich during the winter transfer window in search of more playing time despite reported interest from Milan and Fiorentina, according to his agent.

The 20-year-old defender is regarded as a future star, but has only made eight Bundesliga appearances this term.

"He has a contract until 2013 and I think he is part of Bayern's project," Christian Romberg told tuttomercatoweb.

"The will of the player? He is well at his current club, of course like every footballer he would like to play more.

"If attractive offers arrive then we will review them, but I don't think he will move in January. Indeed, I think as early as next week he could be used by the manager [Louis van Gaal]."
