Liverpool Coming For Me Is A Huge Step In My Career And I Won’t Want Anyone Get In My Way. It’s Liverpool Or Nothing”. Bayer Leverkusen Star Rejects Contract Offer After Liverpool Bid Gets Turned Down.

Liverpool appears to be losing ground in their pursuit of Bayer Leverkusen’s Florian Wirtz, with Real Madrid emerging as the frontrunner for the young star’s signature. Wirtz, a standout performer in Bayer Leverkusen’s unbeaten Bundesliga title-winning campaign, has drawn attention from several top European clubs, including Liverpool. However, recent reports suggest that the Reds are now facing an uphill battle.

According to Marca, Real Madrid has established two key agreements that pave the way for Wirtz’s transfer in the summer of 2025. The first agreement, involving Wirtz, his representatives, and Bayer Leverkusen, ensures that he remains with the German champions until the end of the 2024/25 season. The second, a verbal agreement with Real Madrid, covers personal terms and outlines the plan for Wirtz’s move to the Santiago Bernabeu in 2025. Florentino Perez, Real Madrid’s president, has reportedly assured that financial constraints will not impede the transfer, which could amount to €150 million (£127 million).

This development coincides with Real Madrid’s broader strategic interest in Leverkusen, including speculation about Leverkusen manager Xabi Alonso potentially joining Real Madrid alongside Wirtz. Alonso, who had been considered for the Liverpool managerial role earlier this year, ultimately withdrew from consideration, leading to Liverpool’s appointment of Arne Slot.

Currently, Wirtz is focusing on the European Championship, set to be held in Germany, where he is a key player for the national team. Germany’s opening match will be against Scotland, followed by fixtures against Hungary and Switzerland in Group A. As Wirtz prepares for his first major international tournament, the anticipation of his future move adds an extra layer of excitement for fans and pundits alike.
