After weeks of little concrete speculation, FC Bayern is now apparently pushing Konrad Laimer’s commitment. RB Leipzig is said to have rejected a first official offer for the Austrian midfielder.
Konrad Laimer from RB Leipzig has been FC Bayern’s dream player for some time.
“Pressing machines” was what coach Julian Nagelsmann publicly wished for after the 2-2 draw in the Bundesliga against VfB Stuttgart in May, of course without naming specific names.
The former Leipzig head coach may have had Laimer in mind. Since then, the 25-year-old has repeatedly been linked to FC Bayern in media reports.
FC Bayern makes first official offer
If you believe the portal “fussballtransfers.com”those responsible in Munich have now approached RB Leipzig with a concrete offer for Laimer for the first time.
The record champions offered 22 million euros plus a further two million as success-related bonuses – from the point of view of the Saxons, therefore, too little.
Managing director Oliver Mintzlaff and Co. have sent their counterparts from the Isar a negative answer by return mail, it is said. The Leipzig claim for Laimer, whose contract expires in the summer of 2023, is a whopping 30 million euros.
Exit clause at RB Leipzig expired?
According to “Bild”, the player himself should be able to imagine a move to Bayern very well. So now the talks between the clubs are still about money.
It is no coincidence that the transfer poker around Laimer is picking up steam now. According to “Bild”, there is an exit clause in his Leipzig contract with a fixed transfer fee of 35 million euros.
However, this should only have been valid until the end of June. The transfer fee is now freely negotiable.
