Change from Kevin Trapp: Oliver Glasner takes a stand

BIn the end, Oliver Glasner had hoped that Filip Kostic would stay with Eintracht. This is probably one of the reasons why the Eintracht coach said several times when asked that he did not have the feeling that the Serbian international wanted to leave Frankfurt. But then things turned out differently: The winger Kostic ended his employment with his move to Juventus Turin. To his chagrin, Glasner saw his views not confirmed.

New name, old game? Now, a bit surprisingly, Kevin Trapp has taken center stage on the lively Frankfurt transfer carousel. Because Manchester United, a big club and name in world football, wants to sign the international goalkeeper. Eintracht was informed about this by the English record champions, and Hessen gave the green light to contact the Trapp side.

She now has a concrete offer: Manchester United offers Trapp, whose contract in Frankfurt runs until July 1, 2024, a four-year contract. The earning potential of the 32-year-old Saarlander, who is one of the top earners in Frankfurt with an estimated annual salary of 3.5 million euros, is said to be around three times higher in England. So the money is tempting.

But even in the case of Trapp, Glasner is currently confident that he will continue to work with the goalkeeper. “As far as I know, there hasn’t been any offer from Manchester United for Eintracht so far. That’s why I’m assuming that Kevin will stay,” he told the FAZ on Tuesday. Glasner did not want to comment on whether Trapp was willing to change. “Because I don’t want to say in public what I’m talking about with Kevin.”
