Timmy Chandler’s contract with Eintracht Frankfurt is edging towards its end. With just six months left on his current deal, the U.S. Men’s National Team defender faces an uncertain future, one which could lead him to any number of teams.
In Chandler’s eyes, that future will be decided, ideally, as soon as possible.
Chandler says he’s looking to cement his club status as soon as possible as talks are set to begin this winter over a potential stay with his current Bundesliga home. Still, there’s reportedly interest from abroad, as clubs like Roma have reportedly registered their interest in the USMNT fullback. However, Chandler has previously stated his desire to stay with Frankfurt if the situation works out correctly.
“I want to tell my wife as soon as possible,” Chandler said, according to Frankfurter Rundschau, “so I can finally sleep better again.”
“I enjoy every second of the time I’m on the pitch for the team,” he added, “and I’ll give everything to the club. ”
The USMNT fullback is in sterling form, having become an integral part of the Frankfurt defense while shining in Bundesliga play. Chandler says he still has high expectations for the final six months of his deal as, in his eyes, “there is always something to improve, even Messi can be better”.
Chandler, who also revealed that his discussions with USMNT boss Bruce Arena were positive, is suspended for this weekend’s match against Wolfsburg due to a red card.
