German star unwilling to wait for Barcelona any longer – report


Florian Wirtz of Germany runs with the ball during the International Friendly match between Germany and France at Signal Iduna Park on September 12, 2023 in Dortmund, Germany.

During the latter days of the last summer transfer window, FC Barcelona and Xavi wanted to sign an attacking midfielder who could create chances for his teammates. Bernardo Silva and Giovani Lo Celso were two of the players who attracted interest from Barcelona, but none of them joined the Catalan club.

In recent days, Barcelona have once again been linked with another attacking midfielder, the Bayer Leverkusen player Florian Wirtz. Barcelona have been receiving very encouraging reports on the midfielder for the last two years; however, his chances of joining the Catalan club remain slim for now.

Wirtz not going to wait for Barcelona

According to SPORT, Barcelona are not going to enter the bidding for Wirtz in the upcoming summer transfer window, when the player will be able to leave Bayer Leverkusen. Wirtz and his entourage are also aware of these plans of Barcelona and will not wait for the Catalans if a good offer comes this summer.

Wirtz has exploded at Bayer Leverkusen this season after coming from a long spell on the sidelines due to an injury. Barcelona like the player a lot and want him to spend another season at Leverkusen because they will not be able to bid for him in the upcoming summer. However, such a scenario is looking impossible.

In addition to his quality, Wirtz also attracted Barcelona’s attention with his public expression of admiration for the Catalan club. However, Barcelona would not be able to pay the fee that a player of Wirtz’s quality commands and thus will lose the player, at least for the short term.

Big clubs across Europe to battle for the youngster

Reports from Germany claim that Leverkusen have decided to put the player on the market in the upcoming summer and will be valuing him at around €85 million.

Bayern Munich are one of the clubs that will try to sign him in the summer as they look to boost their midfield by combining Wirtz with Musiala.

Premier League clubs like Manchester City, Manchester United, and Newcastle United are also attentive to the player and may get into a bidding war for him. However, Barcelona have no plans to become a part of such a battle.
