Xherdan Shaqiri has stressed that Bayern Munich remain his priority, despite continuing links with other clubs.

The Switzerland international winger, who scored a hat-trick against Honduras at the World Cup earlier this summer, has been unsettled at Bayern Munich, having grown frustrated at not featuring in crucial games last season.

Shaqiri has drawn attention from a number of Europe's elite, including AC Milan, Atletico Madrid, Juventus, Liverpool and Monaco.

Bayern Munich however have continued to insist that the winger is not for sale and Shaqiri himself admits that the Bavarians remain his priority.


"At the moment I am here and I have a two year contract", the winger was quoted as saying by Eurosport when asked about a potential departure from Bayern Munich.


"I have always said that my first priority is Bayern Munich."

The Bavarians have explained they are keen to extend Shaqiri's contract, in a sign of his importance at the Allianz Arena.

Shaqiri has featured twice for Bayern Munich so far this season, turning out in the German Supercup and the German Cup.
