Schalke’s newly appointed sporting director Christian Heidel has said that the club have no intention of selling German young sensation Max Meyer to Liverpool or any other club this summer.
The 20-year old is one of highly rated young talents in entire Europe as he broke into Schalke first team last season and has made over 32 appearances for the German Blues. He has also scored 5 goals in the Bundesliga and is set to feature for Germany at Rio Olympics next month.
Earlier rumours suggested that Liverpool are keen to sign the young prodigy for a reported 33.5 million Euros as Jurgen Klopp is keen to have the player on his roster.
However, Heidel told German sports paper RevierSport that such talk was an “invention of the Bild newspaper.”
“There’s no ambition to sell Max Meyer,” Heidel said.
Heidel, who took over from Horst Heldt as sporting director in June, has also expressed his satisfaction over the progress of the young German and seems very impressed with Max Meyer.
“To be honest, Max has surprised me in a good way. From the outside, I didn’t think he was as strong as I see him now.
“The lad has been excellent in preseason until now, both in training and in friendly matches,” he said.
