Crystal Palace striker Sorloth excited by Real Madrid, Bayern Munich talk: But Trabzonspor must decide

Crystal Palace striker Alexander Sorloth says his future will be decided by Trabzonspor.

On-loan with the Turks this season, Sorloth's form has led to him being linked with Real Madrid and Bayern Munich.

Trabzonspor have the option to buy Sorloth in June and he told TV2: “Real Madrid is one of the biggest clubs on earth. If I say I don't want to play for them, nobody will believe me.

"Like any player, of course I would love it. But I have a promise to Trabzonspor. I cannot go to Real Madrid or any other club without agreement with them anyway.

"Bayern Munich is also an impressive club. The comparison with (Robert) Lewandowski is an honour. But first, Trabzonspor needs to be convinced."

Trabzonspor can buy Sorloth outright this summer for €6m.
