The French defender, 26, revealed manager Julian Nagelsmann persuaded him to stay at Bayern this summer despite receiving offers from several ‘different clubs’ across Europe
He said: ‘I questioned myself, I had calls from different clubs with my agent. Afterwards, I had the Bayern coach with whom we spoke and with whom we have a good relationship.
‘He made me understand that I was in his plans, that I was important for the team. Maybe one day I will go to one of these clubs, you never know what the future holds.
‘I’m still a year at Bayern Munich. Afterwards, we have time to project ourselves.’
