Xherdan Shaqiri's brother has given warning to Bayern Munich that the winger is not happy at a lack of playing time and would be ready to listen to offers this summer from Liverpool, Manchester United and Inter.
Shaqiri was linked with the exit door at Bayern Munich last summer when Pep Guardiola took charge. But the former Barcelona coach insisted the Swiss international stay put.
However, the ex-Basel man has spent more time than he would have liked warming the bench and, given interest from a number of other clubs, that is not a situation he is willing to tolerate, according to brother Erdin, who also acts as his agent.
"Xherdan is 22. At this age he needs to play regularly, which is currently not the case", Erdin explained to Swiss daily Blick.
"We are waiting now until the summer.
"Then when clubs like Liverpool, Manchester United, Inter Milan and other top clubs come, we will listen."
But Erdin does have words of comfort for Bayern Munich, pointing out that his brother's first priority is to remain at the Allianz Arena if his desire for first team football can be satisfied.
"Bayern still remain our first point of contact before we talk to other clubs", he said.
Shaqiri's contract in Munich runs until 2016.
