Becker's Union deal set to expire next year
By Peter Vice @ViceytheSS
Germany's main sporting tabloid - courtesy of some internal sleuthing - claims that Sheraldo Becker's current deal with Champions' League aspirants 1. FC Union Berlin only runs through the end of next season.

If true, this revelation could have significant ramifications for the Dutch Suriname's future. Becker has already repeatedly been linked with a move away from Köpenick. With an estimated market worth of €15 million, the talismanic attacker is the most valuable player in the FCU squad. Die Eisernen may wish to cash in on him this summer or next winter rather than lose him on a free transfer after the 2023/24 campaign concludes.
Becker's league production numbers (one goal and two assists) have tapered off a bit since the turn of the calendar year. In the first 15 matchdays of the season, Becker scored seven goals and supplied three assists for Urs Fischer's squad. He remains the team's leading scorer and has started all but one of Union's 42 fixtures across all competitions in the current cycle.
