Bayer Leverkusen: the Florian Wirtz clan drops a bomb on the transfer window


By: Manu Tournoux

Everything is going well at Bayer Leverkusen. The German club is having a historic season. Large leader of the Bundesliga with 8 points ahead of Bayern Munich, qualified for the round of 16 of the Europa League and the semi-finals of the German Cup, it has still not lost a single match this season. Neverkusen is in the process of giving the lie to his own nickname of eternal second. He is barely bothered by the rumors circulating about the future of Xabi Alonso, the architect of these successes.

It’s the price of glory. Such performances inevitably attract outside attention. In addition to the Spanish coach, ardently courted by Bayern Munich and Liverpool, who has his preference as we revealed on February 26, Florian Wirtz is also the target of the biggest European clubs. And for good reason, the 20-year-old attacking midfielder is enjoying himself in this team with no less than 17 assists and 8 goals in the 31 matches he has played since the start of this exercise.

Wirtz is not ready to go away

FC Barcelona, ​​Bayern Munich, Real Madrid, Manchester United, Liverpool and even Paris Saint-Germain are all hot on his trail. They will have to be patient. The player’s plan is not to walk away at all. “Florian has a contract at Leverkusen until 2027. This will also roughly correspond to the time he will have spent theretestifies his father to Kölner Stadt-Anzeiger. We should wait for the next two years and then we will see where the path takes us. I don’t know what will happen then.”

According to Hans-Joachim Wirtz, father but also his son’s advisor, a transfer is not on the agenda. On the contrary, he advocates patience in a familiar environment before looking elsewhere. “It still takes him a while before he’s able to put in those performances consistently. Only then can we talk about superlatives and top clubs.” An announcement that risks changing a lot of things. Bayer had probably imagined a sale within the next 18 months given so much interest.
