Bayer Leverkusen creator-in-chief, Florian Wirtz, has been catching the eye of top clubs all across Europe, including Liverpool and Manchester United. The 20-year-old is enjoying a fine season for Xabi Alonso’s table topping Bayer Leverkusen.

The young maestro has been at the heart of every Leverkusen attack, recording 8 goals and 17 assists in all competitions this season (31 appearances). In the league alone, he has recorded an impressive 5 goals and 10 assists in 23 appearances.

Bit by bit, he has rediscovered his magic touch that was his trademark before tearing his ACL and missing most of the 22/23 season.

His displays on the pitch have naturally attracted interest from some of Europe’s big boys, most notably, Liverpool and Manchester United. His father who is also his agent has however downplayed these rumours categorically stating that his son is on contract with Leverkusen until 2027.

“Florian has a contract in Leverkusen until 2027. That will also roughly be the amount of time he will spend in Leverkusen. There is no answer to what happens when. We should wait for the next two years, and then we will see where the path leads, “Hans-Joachim Wirtz told Kolner Stadt-Anzeiger.”

Bayer Leverkusen has been enjoying a stellar campaign under the stewardship of former midfield maestro Xabi Alonso. They are top of the Bundesliga, into the round of 16 in the Europa League and into the semis of the DFB Pokal. They in fact are still unbeaten in all competition, and we are in March!

As it is, they are till in contention to win the treble, and this may convince the German international Wirtz to see out Xabi’s project much longer.

There have been rumours of Xabi Alonso replacing the outgoing Jürgen Klopp at Anfield, where he was the midfield general between 2004 and 2009. These rumours have naturally birthed suggestions of Flo Wirtz following his beloved manager to the Merseyside club.

Wirtz Snr has completely played down these rumours as his son continues to gain the attention of Europe’s top clubs. He further reiterated what a great relationship his son has with Xabi Alonso, his teammates and the club in general.

With all these factors into consideration, it may be a while before these transfer rumours amount to anything solid, at least not until his contract runs out in 2027.
