Bayern Munich and Bayer Leverkusen will face each other in the Bundesliga on Friday evening. “Bild” emphasizes that there is also a transfer competition between the clubs.
This is about Florian Wirtz, who is consistently at the top of Bayern Munich’s wish list. Next summer, the subject of his transfer could get really hot.
Quite recently, Wirtz extended its contract with Bayer Leverkusen until mid-2027. According to “Bilda”, it may not keep him in the “Aptekarzy” team. Especially if he does not advance to the next edition of the Champions League. The 19-year-old attacking midfielder wants to play at the highest level. Such a turn of events could lower its valuation, which would further facilitate Bayern’s task.
The Munich people were interested in Wirtz before and the contact still exists today. It is said that the specific meeting with the broker in the case of the young player took place already in the previous season. Wirtz and his father Hans-Joachim are to be open to the move to Bayern. He wants to avoid his departure from the Bundesliga at all costs, and there is also a lot of interest from outside of it.
The Munich people are not discouraged by the fact that Wirtz is currently not playing for health problems. In March, the 19-year-old severed his anterior cruciate ligaments in his knee and has been pausing all the time ever since.
