Konrad Laimer in sight: Chelsea is competing with Bayern

Which club will Konrad Laimer play for next season? The circle of interested parties keeps growing.

Konrad Laimer would have liked to have left RB Leipzig this summer and joined FC Bayern and Julian Nagelsmann. However, the Red Bulls remained stubborn and insisted on a fee of 30 million euros - too much for Munich, especially since shaky candidate Marcel Sabitzer was in great shape during the preparation and at the start of the season.

So far, however, the change has not been considered canceled, but only postponed. In the summer of 2023, when Laimer's contract in Leipzig ends, things should finally work out between FC Bayern and the Austrian - according to the latest reports.

But now the picture reports that the German record champions have competition and should not be too sure of themselves. Chelsea FC and its new owner Todd Boehly are said to have also become aware of the 25-year-old – the midfield center is considered one of the big construction sites by the Blues, where a change must be made at the end of the season.

Christopher Vivell, who had to give up his position as technical director at RB Leipzig, could play an important role in a commitment - the 35-year-old now beckons a position with the Blues of all things. After Christopher Nkunku and Josko Gvardiol, on whom Chelsea FC is also digging, another player from Leipzig could switch to Stamford Bridge.

RBL should probably not be hoping for a surprising extension of the expiring working paper: According to Bild, this scenario is still almost impossible. According to the current status, the decision will be made between Bayern and Chelsea.
