Bayer Leverkusen looking to keep hold of Manchester United transfer target Florian Wirtz

Bayer Leverkusen appear to be intent on keeping Florian Wirtz at the club, thereby disrupting any attempt by Manchester United to lure the winger to Old Trafford.

This comes after reports suggested that United could enter a bidding war with Premier League rivals Newcastle United and Manchester City to sign the 20 year old.


Sky Germany confirmed United’s interest in Wirtz, explaining that while the club have been scouting him, no formal offer has been made.


Capable of playing in multiple attacking positions, Wirtz is an understandable target for United as The Peoples Person explained, especially with Jadon Sancho expected to depart the club.

In 12 Bundesliga games this season, including 11 starts, the youngster has scored three goals and provided five assists, cementing himself as one of the key attackers in manager Xabi Alonso’s lineup.


He has also proven impactful in the Europa League, scoring two goals and providing four assists in just four outings. (Stats via Sofascore)


Wirtz has played a key role, propelling Leverkusen to the top of the Bundesliga table, with the team winning 11 of their opening 12 league matches.
