Per a report from Sky Sport, Borussia Mönchengladbach midfielder Florian Neuhaus would like to leave the club this upcoming summer. If true, this could be a good omen for Bayern Munich, which has been heavily linked to Neuhaus.
More, Neuhaus is a player that is reportedly coveted on both sides of Bayern Munich’s transfer board. The club has not had an easy time getting aligned on some its latest moves, so this could be a rare instance where everyone is on the same page. Here is the report from Sky Sport:
According to Sky Info, the German international wants to leave the Foals in the summer if possible. Will FC Bayern strike the Gladbach midfielder?
‘’Florian Neuhaus wants to be a top team and preferably already next summer,” reports Sky reporter Marc Behrenbeck on “Transfer Update — the Show” and adds: “According to our information, Neuhaus has an exit clause with Borussia Monchengladbach. However, it is relatively high and above its market value (editor’s note: 39 million euros*), because it was negotiated before Corona when he extended his contract.”
That was not all, however, as Sky report Max Bielefield also chimed in:
Where could the path of the 23-year-old lead, who has already scored five goals and prepared four more this season? The German national team player might remain in the Bundesliga. “FC Bayern makes the most sense,” explains Sky Reporter Max Bielefeld.
And further: “We have to wait and see Bayern’s planning in midfield, but the fact is that Corentin Tolisso is not as convinced as one had imagined. So there could be a gap in the summer that he could close perfectly.” Bayern’s strategy has always been to guide German national players to Säbener Strasse.
Behrenbeck also gave a hint on what other club is looking at Neuhaus:
According to Behrenbeck, Real Madrid also “watched the Gladbach midfielder intensely.” There is currently no trend as to which club Neuhaus would like to switch to.
Despite all of the rumors linking Bayern Munich to the player, a €39 million exit clause might be hard for the Bavarians to manage in “The COVID-19 Era.” That could also apply to Real Madrid as well.
Those clubs could sell off players to generate funds and to clear out salary space, but there is a lot of time between now and July. Buckle up, this could take a while.
