Bayern München and Serge Gnabry are "still a bit far apart" in their negotiations over a new contract, according to club president Herbert Hainer.
Nevertheless, Hainer expects the German international to extend his current deal, which expires in 2023.
"Our management is in talks with Serge. Our expectations are still a bit far apart," admitted Hainer in an interview with SZ (via iMiaSanMia) and added:
"So far we haven't reached an agreement, that's no secret. We know what we have in Serge, and I think he also knows what he has here.
"Serge belongs to the generation Kimmich/Goretzka/Sané who have known each other for a long time. I'm confident and I hope Serge will extend his contract," emphasized the Bayern chief.
