Borussia Mönchengladbach midfielder and Germany international Florian Neuhaus is denying reports that he has a pre-arranged deal with Bayern Munich to make a move after next season.
On Saturday, Bild issued a report referencing rumors that that Neuhaus had already reached an agreement to join the Bavarians next summer. The 24-year-old, however, sternly denied that accusation and insisted that he was solely focused on his club career with Die Fohlen.
Tz reporter Manuel Bonke fired off a tweet after capturing a quote from Neuhaus earlier today:
Florian #Neuhaus dementiert in der @tzmuenchen, dass sein Wechsel zum #FCBayern im Sommer 2022 beschlossene Sache sei: „Ich habe nirgends einen Vertrag unterschrieben außer bei #BorussiaMönchengladbach. Dort fühle ich mich aktuell sehr wohl.“ @kessler_philipp #FCBTransfersommer— Manuel Bonke (@mano_bonke) June 1, 2021
Florian #Neuhaus denied in the @tzmuenchen that his move to #FCBayern In the summer of 2022 it was decided: “I have not signed a contract anywhere except with #BorussiaMönchengladbach. I feel very much at home there at the moment.” @kessler_philipp #FCBTransfersommer
Because Bayern Munich is operating under a very conservative approach this offseason, there is little-to-no thought that a move is possible this summer for Neuhaus to Bayern Munich.
Next summer, however, many have speculated that Neuhaus could be open to a transfer and might be considered affordable with a rumored €40 million exit clause in his current deal. A real skeptic would also point out that Neuhaus included the caveat of “at the moment” with his statement, but that is just further speculation for another day.
For now, Neuhaus seems set for another season of challenging Bayern Munich, not joining them.
