Florian Wirtz is set to spark a major transfer war in the near future, with several top clubs across Europe ready to battle it out for his signing in 2025.

The Bayer Leverkusen forward will remain in Germany for one more season at the very least and is expected to leave in 2025, with Real Madrid one of the teams eyeing his acquisition.

The likes of Bayern Munich and Manchester City are also keen and more recently, Barcelona have also entered the race to sign the Bundesliga sensation.

Real Madrid leading the race

However, as per German publication BILD, Real Madrid are currently leading the race to sign Florian Wirtz from Bayer Leverkusen in the summer of 2025.

Indeed, Los Blancos are seen as the best placed to secure the 21-year-old’s services, along with current Leverkusen manager Xabi Alonso in a year’s time.

Wirtz has a contract with Bayer Leverkusen that runs until the summer of 2027 and the deal does not consist of a release clause.

As such, Real Madrid or any other club seeking his signing would have to negotiate with the Bundesliga champions and agree on a transfer fee.

And, Leverkusen CEO, Fernando Carro, has already made it clear that they will not sell Wirtz for anything less than €150 million.

As per BILD, Real Madrid are more than aware of the fact and would be willing to shell out the €150 million needed to sign Wirtz in 2025.

The reigning champions of Spain and Europe have already built a formidable squad to which they added Kylian Mbappe recently. And with Wirtz also on the agenda for next year, Florentino Perez could be on his way to building an unbeatable super team.

Ancelotti-favourite defender will leave Real Madrid if club signs 23-year-old ace

With Kylian Mbappe’s signing now a completed objective, Real Madrid turn to what was always considered the second most critical operation of this summer – Alphonso Davies.

The Canadian full-back has been on Los Blancos’ radar for a while now, but with his contract with Bayern Munich running until 2025, his signing is seen to be a tad bit more complicated.

The Bavarians’ firm stance that they wish to persist with the speedster, needless to say, has only made the objective more complicated for Los Blancos.

No room for three

Despite Bayern Munich’s repeated advances towards Davies in recent weeks, Real Madrid are firm that they will attempt to sign the player this summer.

In light of the Canadian full-back’s possible arrival, Cadena SER reveals that Ferland Mendy will almost certainly leave Real Madrid if Davies’ signing is pulled off.

Carlo Ancelotti is clear that he has no room for three left-backs in his squad. One of Fran Garcia and Mendy must thus leave the Spanish capital in such a scenario and the Frenchman is better placed on that front.

Mendy’s current deal in Madrid runs out next year and the player has been informed that a decision over his future at the club will be taken shortly.

On track with Davies

The Spanish outlet also reveal that the Canadian speedster rejected an offer from Bayern Munich in recent hours and that his departure from the Bavarian capital is not ruled out.

Bayern Munich demand a sum of €50 million for the dynamic full-back. Real Madrid, however, have set a spending limit of €30 million for the youngster and will not exceed that sum in any scenario.

Vincent Kompany’s men thus have a critical decision to make, for allowing Davies to run down the final year on his deal may well back-fire as did the case of Kylian Mbappe with PSG.

Real Madrid, as it stands, appear to be in the driver’s seat.
