Bayer Leverkusen’s 20-year-old midfielder Florian Wirtz has become a subject of interest for top football clubs, with Real Madrid prominently in the mix reports journalist Florian Plettenberg.

Los Blancos are one among a host of top teams in the mix, with Liverpool, Manchester City, and Manchester United are also interested.

Bayern Munich also remain in the mix and might have the best chance of signing him, provided they have the financial wherewithal to meet his steep valuation of €120 million.

Bayer know Wirtz will leave

Wirtz’s future has been thrown into question following his blistering performance in the Bundesliga under Xabi Alonso. Now, the 20-year-old does have a contract with the Bundesliga team until 2027, but Leverkusen know he will leave much earlier.

As such, the utmost hope is that the player will extend his stay for at least one more season. However, the club’s leadership is still anticipating his departure, with strong convictions that it will materialize no later than the summer of 2025. 

“In the end, everyone has to go their own way and at some point, I have to decide where I would like to play best,” the midfielder had earlier said about his future, as quoted by Sky Germany.

It is to be noted that the competition for Wirtz’s signature is fierce, featuring heavyweight contenders such as Real Madrid, Liverpool, and Manchester United.

He wants to grow first

Meanwhile, Bayern Munich have emerged as the front-runners, provided they can meet the financial demands of securing the young talent. 

At present, a move following the European Championships after the end of the season for Wirtz is largely expected, but he is determined not to rush the process and has yet to commit to any particular team. 

This is because the Leverkusen player prioritizes personal development and aims to grow as a player, intending to make a significant impact with them, at least until the summer.

At the same time, though, Bayern need to be wary of a certain Jamal Musiala, although they are of the idea that both Wirtz and Musiala can be incorporated within the team.

However, if the Bayern youngster, who is also said to be on Madrid’s agenda, leaves in 2025, Wirtz will join the defending German champions.

Real Madrid will be on their way to England this Thursday as they gear up to take on Borussia Dortmund in the UEFA Champions League final on Saturday.

The players and the staff will be on a flight to London tomorrow to prepare for the clash at Wembley.

However, according to a report from journalist Arancha Rodriguez, Real Madrid goalkeeper Andriy Lunin might not travel with the rest of the team tomorrow.

The 25-year-old Ukrainian goalkeeper has not trained for three days in a row after coming down with the flu.

Lunin has overcome the flu, but he still has the virus and there is still a chance he could be contagious.

As such, Real Madrid, aware of the importance of Saturday’s match against Borussia Dortmund, are considering leaving the Ukrainian behind to avoid any possible contagion ahead of the Champions League final.

The goalkeeper will likely not travel with the rest of the expedition to London on Thursday and will fly alone on Saturday to avoid the risk of infection.

On Thursday, Lunin will undergo another check-up and, depending on the viral load, he could even travel on Friday. But it seems impossible for him to travel with his teammates.

It has already been suggested that Lunin would be making way for Thibaut Courtois in the starting lineup against Borussia Dortmund on Saturday. The likelihood of that has increased following the events of this week.
