Send as Haaland heir to BVB? Rolfes speaks plain language

Bundesliga club Bayer Leverkusen have long-term plans with Czech striker Patrik Schick (25) and see no reason to give up the 18-time goal scorer early.

“Before there is too much speculation – like Florian Wirtz, Patrik has no exit clause, and that’s why we have the reins of action in our hands,” said Bayer sporting director Simon Rolfes on “Bild TV.”

Schick’s contract with the Werkself runs until June 30, 2025. Rolfes does not believe that the club could weaken even with lucrative offers in the Schick case: “He has a long-term contract with us and is not thinking at all of leaving the club . Patrik is a very important building block. Others can play dominoes, but we play football.”

Rolfes continues: “But I believe that he not only has the chance to become a top player with us, but also to become a leader in the team. In the end, that’s another development stage towards an absolute top level – he can do this step very well with us.”

On Saturday, Bayer announced the signing of Iranian center forward Sardar Azmoun (27) from Zenit St. Petersburg for the new season on a free transfer. This will be provided with a contract until 2027.
