The summer break leaves the football professionals room for individual leisure activities. DFB star Timo Werner and friend Konrad Laimer are drawn to the States.

Los Angeles – The rumors are not new: According to various media reports, the FC Bayern – especially in the person of coach Julian Nagelsmann – to lure Konrad Laimer from Leipzig to Säbener Straße. The Austrian wants his contract with the Saxons according to the table football not extend.

According to reports from Sky, RB Leipzig definitely does not want to let its midfield engine move towards Munich. The reason for this is obvious: after Dayot Upamecano, Julian Nagelsmann and Marcel Sabitzer, Laimer would be the fourth “robbery” by the record champions.

Laimer still has a contract until 2023, RB is opposed, the transfer could be a difficult undertaking for Bayern. The 25 year old expressly did not rule out a departure. At the moment he has enough time to think about his future.

Laimer uses the summer break for a trip to the United States. Also present: buddy and ex-teammate Timo Werner. The two stood together for Leipzig a total of 90 times. The two moved to Los Angeles for a baseball match in the professional league MLB.

Konrad Laimer to FC Bayern? RB Leipzig is in the way

They clearly acknowledged their colors and came out as fans of the LA Dodgers, as an Instagram photo on the channels of the two kickers shows. Even the club itself welcomed Werner to their site. In the comments on Laimer’s Instagram post, there are quite a few FC Bayern fans who have made a clear demand several times: “Come to Bayern!”

If it were only up to Laimer himself, the change would probably already be a thing of the past. But the situation is similar like Robert Lewandowski: His club is currently unwilling to hand him over before the end of his contract. The Austrian would have to fight hard for minutes at FC Bayern, with Leon Goretzka, Joshua Kimmich, new signing Ryan Gravenberch and Marcel Sabitzer there is a lot of competition. (epp)
