Ghana international Joseph Aidoo will be considered by German and European champions Bayern Munich.
This is according to Bayern manager Hans-Dieter (Hansi) Flick, who hinted that the Bavarians might consider a move to sign the central defender from Spanish club Celta de Vigo.
Flick was speaking in reaction to recent remarks that were made by the Ghanaian who expressed a dream to follow in the footsteps of compatriot Samuel Osei Kuffour.
“My mentor is Samuel Kuffour. I am proud to have been international as he was and to follow in his footsteps. He is my mentor because, I think I will play for Bayern Munich in the future and he was there,” Joseph Aidoo said.
“That is why I have always carried that club in my heart. Kuffour had a good impact on the world of football.
“Bayern Munich touched my heart since childhood. I follow their games and even go to their website to watch some videos.
“Bayern touched my heart as a child and I think I’ll play for that club in the future.”
Legendary Ghana defender Kuffour is best remembered for his time with the German champions Bayern whom he represented for over a decade, winning a total of 14 honours, and playing in nearly 250 games for the club.
“There are a lot of players who would like to play at FC Bayern,” said Flick.
“If he [Joseph Aidoo] has the appropriate disposition and quality, then I think he will be dealt with.”
Aidoo has become a consistent performer for Celta Vigo in La Liga this season, and is looking better and better.
The 25-year-old joined Celta after leaving Belgian club KRC Genk for a reported fee of around €8 million in July 2019.
He has played seven international matches for the Black Stars so far and will be looking to cement his place in the starting lineup.
