FC Bayern has been said to be interested in signing Konrad Laimer for some time.

He now rejected a contract extension in Leipzig.

Munich – FC Bayern has already signed Ryan Gravenberch for the headquarters and given Marc Roca to Leeds United, but the record champions could still strengthen themselves with a midfielder.

For weeks now, the people of Munich have been associated with Leipzig high-flyer Konrad Laimer.

According to a recent report, the 25-year-old recently refused to extend his contract in Leipzig.

That would pave the way for a change.

Konrad Laimer

Born: May 27, 1997 in Salzburg (Austria)

Contract with RB Leipzig until: June 30, 2023

Previous clubs: RB Salzburg, FC Liefering, RB Leipzig

Internationals for Austria: 24 (2 goals)

Does FC Bayern snap?

Leipzig top performer Laimer rejects contract extension

Laimer has been active for RB Leipzig in the German Bundesliga since the summer of 2017 and has gradually improved.

However, the Austrian, who joined the Red Bull Salzburg academy in 2007, could soon leave the beverage manufacturer empire.

"It's quite possible that I won't play in Leipzig again next season," he said at the beginning of June.

As the

now reports, he is said to have informed those responsible in Leipzig that he would not be extending his contract, which was valid until June 2023.

According to the kicker

, Laimer is said

not to have submitted a change request, but his departure is probably expected.

Since Leipzig rarely let their players go on a free transfer, this summer would be the last chance to cash in on the midfielder.

RB even acted on the transfer market and secured the services of Wolfsburg's Xaver Schlager for around twelve million euros as a preventive measure.

Konrad Laimer to FC Bayern?

Nagelsmann could be the deciding factor

A Laimer sale could more than equalize these expenses.

As

Bild

recently reported, interested parties could sign him from July for the transfer fee of 18 million euros.

With a view to the remaining term of the contract, the amount is quite high, but Bayern already showed negotiating skills with the transfer from Gravenberch and the agreement with Sadio Mané.

With the missed extra time in Leipzig, a reunion of Julian Nagelsmann and his ex-player is getting closer.

However, Laimer, whom the current Bayern coach once described as a "pressing machine", is not only in discussion with the German league leaders, some Premier League clubs are also squinting at the blond boy.

The relationship of trust with Nagelsmann could therefore possibly be decisive if Laimer ultimately had to choose between several clubs.
