Emre Can will not be discussing his future with any clubs until the end of the campaign.
This is according to the player himself, who was speaking to journalists immediately following the FC Porto game in which he shone.
As we know, the 24-year-old’s contract runs out at the end of the season and he’s currently available for anyone to freely approach with view to a Bosman transfer.
“Of course I have to think about my footballing future,” Can told German reporters in the mixed zone, cited by Football Italia.
“I haven’t signed for any other club, I’m just focused on this season. We want to finish in second place in the Premier League, we’re in the Champions League quarter-finals and we want to progress. That’s all I’m focused on now.
“My agent has blocked all the negotiations, I’m thinking only of football.”
It’s good to see that despite Can’s future likely being elsewhere, he’s at least fully committed to our cause while we’re paying him – more than could be said for some others who’ve departed.
We don’t think his comments prove he’s staying; after all, if he really wanted to, he’d just put pen to paper.
We’ve heard from various sources than Can simply wants a new challenge. He hasn’t renewed his house lease and is planning on a future abroad.
This is something we can forgive, although at the moment, why would anybody want to leave a Jurgen Klopp team?
