Sport Bild reports that Hoffenheim's hopes of signing Bayern München centre-back Chris Richards permanently have hit a snag as they aren't willing to meet his asking price.
Hoffenheim coach Sebastian Hoeness remains keen on signing the 21-year-old, and Bayern are willing to let him go – but only for the right price.
According to Sport Bild, the stumbling block is that Hoffenheim don't want to pay Bayern München's asking price of at least €10 million.
Cashing in on Florian Grillitsch could bring in funds to finance a deal for Richards. AC Milan are interested, but haven't been willing to meet the midfielder's price tag of €10-15 million so far.
