There has been speculation for several months now, and now it seems a change has been decided – national player Konrad Leimer will wear FC Bayern’s shirt next season. After the German record champions and RB Leipzig – the midfielder’s current employer – could not agree on a transfer last summer, Laimer now appears to be moving to Bayern Munich on a free transfer.
Austria. As German newspaper Bild reports, the 77-time Austrian national is set to become Bayern Munich’s first summer transfer – thus signing a long-term contract. According to rumors, Leimer will play at Munich’s Allianz Arena at least until 2027.
In the current season, the 25-year-old is suffering from injury problems. Due to a torn left synovial ligament and subsequent operation, Leimer missed 15 competitive games for Leipzig in the fall. However, Bayern Munich’s interest did not wane during this period of injury. The ÖFB player has always been considered the ultimate dream player of former coach Julian Nagelsmann. If the reports are correct, Thomas Tuchel – the new coach of Munich – could decline the services of the Austrian coach.
Do you think that Leimer will win in Bayern Munich?
Influences on other national players
However, it is questionable whether two players from the Austrian Football Association team will play for Bayern Munich next season. After all, Marcel Sabitzer – who was also signed by RB Leipzig in August 2021 – was loaned out to Manchester United in the winter so he could amass more playing time. In England, Sabitzer has made eight appearances so far and has set up one goal. However, it is not known if the loan agreement also includes a purchase option.
