Xherdan Shaqiri moving to England?

Swiss winger Xherdan Shaqiri is considering leaving German Champions Bayern Munich this summer and has said “moving to England” would be an option for him.

The 22-year-old spent two seasons with Bayern Munich after making a switch from Swiss side FC Basel since his move he has scored 10 goals in the 43 appearances he made for the Bavarians. 

Shaqiri said, "It's clear that I cannot continue like this. If nothing changes, I will have to make some changes myself. I want to play in the important games as well and not just in the Bundesliga. I don't want to go through another year like this.

"I only want to play for a major club. The Champions League is important to me. We will see what happens.

"England would be an option. If I were to leave Bayern, it will be in a foreign club. But it will have to be a club challenging for the title."

Shaqiri has made only 10 appearances with Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga last season. He has been heavily linked with clubs like Manchester United and Liverpool. 

With United not in Europe next season, it automatically puts Liverpool in the driving seat for his signature this summer. 

Shaqiri has won two Bundesliga titles , two DFB Pokal, one DFB Super Cup, one UEFA Champions League, one UEFA Super Cup and one FIFA Club World Cup in his first two seasons with Bayern Munich.
