Bayern Munich has been linked with Borussia Mönchengladbach midfielder Florian Neuhaus steadily over the past six months, but any fans hoping to see the 24-year-old Germany international at Säbener Straße this summer might be disappointed.
Because the rumored exit clause on Neuhaus’ deal with Borussia Mönchengladbach is north of €40 million, the Bavarians might not have — or at least are not willing to spend — the funds available to bring the talented midfielder this summer.
Per Bild chief reporter Tobi Altschäffl, Bayern Munich will put its pursuit of Neuhaus on ice for a while and revisit a signing of Neuhaus for the summer of 2022:
A transfer from Florian Neuhaus to #fcbayern this summer is unlikely due to the financial situation caused by corona. However, Neuhaus remains Bayerns transfer target for 2022 #bayerninsider @cfbayern— Tobi Altschäffl (@altobelli13) April 23, 2021
Should Neuhaus continue to excel, his price could be even higher by that point. If Bayern Munich really wants to make a deal with the player, this could potentially be seen as a calculated gamble that the club will be able to negotiate a better deal that is lower than his release clause.
Neuhaus’ contract with Borussia Mönchengladbach runs through 2024.
