Contract negotiations between Werder Bremen and Milot Rashica have hit a stumbling block, according to a report from Bild.
Werder would like to keep Rashica for as long as possible, but negotiations over a new contract beyond 2022 has reportedly been put on hold, because the parties can't agree on the size of the buyout clause that the deal should include.
When asked about Rashica's situation at Werder, his agent, Altin Lala, told Bild:
"There were inquiries from four or five clubs in the summer. But Milot feels at home in Bremen and has settled in really well. And he still has a long contract."
The quick winger might have to leave Werder eventually to take the next step in his career, though.
"Milot would like to play in the Champions League at some point," Lala said.
Werder Bremen sporting director Frank Baumann won't rule out that Rashica could stay beyond 2020.
"We took a risk in the summer. We didn't make much money, but still spend a lot. Of course, it's more likely that we'll sell one or two more first-team regulars next summer. That doesn't mean that we have to sell Milot, though," he told Bild.
Rashica has scored two goals and made one assist in three appearances for Werder this season.
