Bundesliga - No Bayern move for Shaqiri
Bayern Munich president Uli Hoeness admits his admiration for Basel winger Xherdan Shaqiri but says signing him is not an option.
Although still just 19-years-old Shaqiri has produced numerous impressive displays both for Basel and the Swiss national side, for whom he has 11 caps.
Shaqiri also caught the eye at the Under-21 European Championships in Denmark this year and his growing reputation has attracted the interest of a number of top clubs including Bayern.
Hoeness was quoted by Tagesanzeiger as saying: "Of course, I have spoken with [Basel vice-president] Bernhard Heusler about Shaqiri.
"However, a transfer is not an option at the moment. There is no truth in any of those rumours."
