Kevin Trapp happy at Eintracht Frankfurt despite reported Bayern Munich interest

Eintracht Frankfurt goalkeeper Kevin Trapp said he never considered leaving the Bundesliga side despite reported interest from Bayern Munich.

The 32-year-old Trapp was linked to joining Bayern as a possible replacement for Manuel Neuer, who has been ruled out for the rest of the season after breaking a leg in a skiing accident.

In an interview with Kicker, Trapp addressed the Bayern link, and stated: "As I have said many times in the 13 years of my professional career: When something like that comes up, it's a good sign because it's a confirmation of your performances," Trapp told Kicker.

"We know what kind of goalkeeper Manuel is... Accordingly, I haven't really dealt with it much. I read about it, of course, but we are in the middle of the season here."

Last summer, Trapp was also linked with a move to join Manchester United which never materialised.

"I rejected something in the summer because we still have something very nice planned here. That was it. I can't be held responsible for anything else that is written in the media. I didn't get too invested," Trapp explained

Kicker then asked Trapp if he had plans to extend his contract at Eintracht, he replied: "We are in talks, but there is no big pressure. Our relationship is good.

"I came here from Kaiserslautern and later came back from Paris - everyone knows how comfortable I feel here. The club is on a good path and we are taking the time everyone needs.

"We won't tell you now what will happen in the end. But we have good talks, we have a good exchange. Everyone knows what they want.

"The club is successful; the players here also want to be successful. If I can continue to be a part of that, then of course I'd love to," Trapp added.
