Bayer Leverkusen are prepared to sell their star players for a ‘high price’ according to the clubs chairman Michael Schade.
“We try to find talents as early as possible, we try to develop them and then we are going to sell them for a high price,” Schade was quoted as saying by Goal.
“If we are able to create a world star or international top player, then one day this player wants to play for one of the top [clubs in the world], of course. What we can do is develop him and make him as expensive as possible.”
Leverkusen’s sporting director and former Germany manager Rudi Voller acknowledged last month that Çalhanoğlu could be offloaded if a substantial fee is offered.
The 21-year-old has impressed since joining Bayer on a €14.5 million move from HSV and has attracted interest from England.
