The summer transfer window in the Bundesliga opens in less than two months. Then Konrad Laimer is also a very hot candidate for a change. The central midfielder could say that RB Leipzig could leave for the fixed transfer fee of 37 million euros, according to matching media reports, the interested parties are already in line.
“I am not even aware that it is so,” said Laimer about the fact that he is one of the most sought -after players in the league and added: “Of course it feels great when others appreciate my performance.”
The clubs in which the 24-year-old Austrian is at the top of the list include BVB and FC Bayern from Germany. In particular, the German football record champion is not dredging for the first time at the ÖFB international.
In retrospect for the advertising of the Munich last summer, Laimer explained: “I stayed in Leipzig. It didn’t change, so it wasn’t that far and has long since been ticked off.”
In the next few weeks, however, the topic of FC Bayern could be significantly larger and more serious, as reports of the “kicker” and the “Konrad Bild” suggest, a move to Dortmund also seems possible. Asked where he will play next season, said Laimer: “Standed now at RB Leipzig. My contract runs until 2023.”
As the football business wants, however, the Austrian would have to extend his contract promptly, should he actually plan a longer stay in Leipzig, otherwise a sale in summer would be necessary so that the red bulls can still generate a transfer. But Laimer does not want to think about an extension.

“There is no point in having talks about it in the current, decisive phase of the season. Otherwise only unrest would arise, and I would have to worry about things that are not the most important thing,” the 24-year-old weighed off.
After the ongoing season, he will go within peace and make a decision, the midfielder emphasized.
However, the “next step” could “go into all directions,” said Laimer meaningfully. A “good feeling” is particularly important for him.
