Shaqiri to Bayern - that story is also gathering pace here in Basel (in the same way the Galatasaray link never did). I'm inclined to believe it.
Shaqiri has gone on record saying that he will leave the club this summer and that he wants to move to country where he can speak the language - which makes the Bundesliga his only destination, really. Recent Swiss football is full of examples of young talents who moved abroad at the first offer - and failed to integrate.
Looks like Shaqiri has learned from that.
Good move is true. The transfer fee is said to be between 10 and 12 Million Euros.
