Rumor: Liverpool refrain from signing Konrad Laimer due to Bayern’s interest
Austrian midfielder Konrad Laimer almost moved to Bayern Munich in the summer, but the transfer could not take place. However, everything indicates that Laimer should move next year to Munich as his contract expires that year.
Bayern Munich can be pretty assured that Konrad Laimer will leave on a free next year. After the failed move this year, the Bavarians will most likely finally have their hands on the player in 2023.
But for Laimer, Bayern were not the only club fighting for him. According to „Goal“ and „SPOX“ , Liverpool have given up on signing the Austrian. In Liverpool, it is assumed that the race is decided and Laimer is moving to Bayern.
At the same time, Laimer’s move to Bayern should also be questioned within the team. Marcel Sabitzer is currently playing well that not even Ryan Gravenberch, the new midfield talent of Ajax, gets any playing time. There is hardly any room for another central midfielder.
German tabloid „BILD“, on the other hand, recently reported that a Laimer transfer had already been agreed. Although the midfield is packed, Bayern cannot miss the chance of getting a quality player like Laimer on a free. With Sabitzer’s performances this year, it’s doubtful whether a Laimer transfer would be connected to a Sabitzer departure.
