Wonderkid’s proposed move to Bayern is off, confirms his father

The father of Schalke 04 wonderkid Assan Ouedraogo has confirmed that his son will not be joining Bayern Munich.

For a long time, it looked like Bayern Munich would eventually complete the signing of Schalke 04’s Assan Ouedraogo.

However, the 18-year-old midfielder’s father, Alassane Ouedraogo, has now confirmed that the move won’t be happening.

“Unfortunately, there are a lot of false reports circulating about Assan. The fact is that there was never a commitment from Assan and us to FC Bayern, even though we had a well-paid contract from FC Bayern that was ready to be signed months ago,” Alassane Ouedraogo told Sky Germany.

“The idea and the prospects were more important to us than Bayern’s financial possibilities. We were aware of Bayern’s current situation and of course followed it closely. Bayern have now informed us openly and honestly that they won’t be signing Assan this summer for various reasons,” he added.

What’s next for Ouedraogo is unclear, but it doesn’t seem like the highly-rated midfielder is short of offers.

“For our part, we have not made a commitment to any club. What we can confirm is that we have received several written offers. Not just from Bayern. A lot of clubs, especially from the Premier League, are very interested in Assan. There are teams from England who would like to sign Assan directly for their professional team in the summer. We will make the right decision soon,” said Alassane Ouedraogo.

According to Sky Germany, Ouedraogo is still leaning towards a move to the Bundesliga, with RB Leipzig and Eintracht Frankfurt among his reported suitors.
