Dante will stay at Bayern, insists agent

Dante’s agent has quashed reports claiming the defender could leave Bayern Munich.

The Brazil international was absent during a club photo shoot this week, prompting speculation he was set to leave the Allianz Arena.

However, the player’s representative, Marcus Marin, told Goal: “There is no news, he will stay at Bayern.

“He missed the photo shoot but that was just a coincidence, it has nothing to do with a transfer.

“Of course he wants to play every week but I’m sure he will this weekend. The team changes a lot with injuries and I’m sure he’ll get his minutes. He’s comfortable at Bayern.”

Dante’s place in the Bayern side came under pressure last season as he battled with Jerome Boateng and Medhi Benatia for a starting berth at centre-back.

The 31-year-old’s current deal runs until June 2017.
