Bayern Munich eyeing to steal €85 million-rated Barcelona midfield target

Always on the alert for the highest quality players who can further strengthen their squad, FC Barcelona are currently monitoring several players with an eye on incorporating them once the opportunity arises.

As already reported here, one of these players who has piqued Barcelona’s interest is Florian Wirtz from Bayer Leverkusen, who has emerged as one of the most exciting talents in the last few years and is having a wonderful start to the current season under Xabi Alonso.

Bayern Munich interested in Wirtz

He has returned from his knee injury in flying colors, and all the big clubs in Europe are keeping an eye on him. However, he is of special interest for Barcelona as the Catalans have always liked him for his quality, and the player himself has openly proclaimed his admiration for the Catalan club.

However, getting him is very difficult for Barcelona because of their financial conditions. This difficulty of getting Wirtz has further enhanced recently, as SPORT reports that Bayern Munich are now also emerging as a club that can go all out for the attacking midfielder in the next summer transfer window.

Leverkusen not negotiating for now

The report mentions that Bayern are dreaming of pairing Wirtz with Jamal Musiala, and thus put on two of the best young attacking midfielders on the pitch. The Bavarians are aware of Wirtz’s quality, and would pay big bucks to ensure he does not leave Bundesliga. However, Bayer Leverkusen do not want to negotiate for the player for now.

Wirtz himself is also fully focused on further improving and enjoying the good form that he himself and his club is going through.

Bayer Leverkusen value him at €80 million, and while they do not want to negotiate for him now, everything depends on how many of their sporting objectives Leverkusen can achieve by the end of the season.
