Eric-Maxim Choupo-Moting and FC Bayern are currently in harmony at the highest level. The center forward could extend an expiring contract for the first time. But that is also a question of money. To that end, he has earned a fairly low sum so far.
Based on his appearance against Viktoria Pilsen in early October, Eric-Maxim Choupo-Moting has scored eight goals and provided two more assists in his last nine appearances for Bayern.
Things are currently going well for the 33-year-old, which of course also benefits the people of Munich. Even away from the goal, the center forward is in very good shape. As a target player, for example, in and around the opposing penalty area, he can always be played. This allows him to fix the balls, move spaces and put his teammates in the limelight.
It is therefore not surprising that the topic of a contract extension is currently growing. After all, Choupo-Moting will leave the club in the summer, as things currently stand.
For the intended role as a substitute player and actor for one or the other rotation, this sum may seem quite large. In the context of FCB and other salaries, the five million euros are still pretty humane. In particular for the current services that the native of Hamburg can access regularly.
According to Plettenberg, an extension is still possible and is also being considered by Munich. However, it should also be a question of money. Choupo-Moting is unlikely to see major financial demands as a potential deal breaker, but he will want his role well funded.
Either way, the talks are only planned for after the World Cup. Before that there will be no movement. It would be the first contract extension since his first professional change.
