Konrad Laimer’s free transfer to Bayern Munich from RB Leipzig is getting closer to completion, according to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano.

The purported transfer talks started a little over a month ago. And now, Bayern Munich is about to reach a pre-contract arrangement with Konrad Laimer.

The two teams are very close to reaching a verbal deal, according to Fabrizio Romano, but nothing has been signed or laid down in writing.

Bayer Munich boss Julian Nagelsmann’s ambitions have been plain given that he has been interested in the midfielder for the majority of the previous 12 months and that he is already familiar with him from his time as Leipzig’s manager.

Fabrizio Romano claims that it is anticipated that Laimer would leave Leipzig this coming summer and sign with Bayern as a free agent.

With 167 matches under his belt since joining Leipzig in 2017, Laimer has been a vital member of the team.

Laimer has not been a part of Leipzig’s recent upswing, which has seen them win 12 of their past 14 games across all competitions.

His deal with Leipzig is set to expire in June 2023, and despite interest from other European teams, Bayern was prepared to buy him during the last transfer window. However, Bayern recognized that signing him for nothing was a very real and practical alternative.

Liverpool was one of the teams that was heavily connected with Laimer earlier this year, and their desire to update their midfield has sparked interest again recently.

The Premier League powerhouses, on the other hand, are rumored to already be aware that Laimer has selected Bayern Munich for the next stage of his career, which is most likely to begin in the 2023–2024 season.

Laimer has always desired Bayern, and Nagelsmann shares this desire. The midfielder has made it plain that the only team he would contemplate leaving Leipzig for was Bayern Munich, where he would have the opportunity to work for a manager who is already familiar with him and his finest qualities.

Finally, Romano asserts that the “verbal agreements” are in the “final stages” and that following that, all that would be left to do is wait for the signing of legal papers to seal the deal.

Laimer is presently valued at around 28 million euros, which is around €2 million more expensive than he was at this time last year. For Bayern, this will be quite a bargain.

This piece of transfer business for Bayern is just as financially astute as it is effective in strengthening Nagelsmann’s midfield.

Existing team midfielders Marcel Sabitzer and Leon Goretzka will undoubtedly have questions after this, but Nagelsmann shouldn’t and won’t let that stop him from making this acquisition.

Additionally, the 25-year-old Australian International (Laimer) will reunite with old teammates Marcel Sabirzer and Dayot Upamecano, who both once represented Leipzig.
