Konrad Laimer will probably move from RB Leipzig to FC Bayern this summer. The Austrian is said to have signed a contract until 2027 several months ago. Laimer has long been the dream player of former Bayern coach Julian Nagelsmann.
Konrad Laimer: Desired player from ex-Bayern coach Julian Nagelsmann
But now not only Nagelsmann is no longer in the club. All other decision-makers at Bayern who advocated a move from Laimer to Munich were also dismissed. A somewhat bizarre situation.
Nagelsmann was replaced by Thomas Tuchel during the international break. The ex-coach had already trained Laimer in his time at RB, is considered a big fan of the midfielder and is said to have exerted great pressure internally to bring Laimer to the Isar.
Oliver Kahn and Hasan Salihamidzic are also no longer with FC Bayern
In addition to Nagelsmann, Oliver Kahn and sports director Hasan Salihamidzic are no longer part of FC Bayern. Salihamidzic in particular kept raving about Laimer’s qualities in public, repeatedly calling him a “very interesting player”.
Of the sporting decision-makers, only Technical Director Marco Neppe is still there. But according to the latest reports, even he has to worry about his future with the German champions.
A strange situation for Laimer, as Nagelsmann was the main reason for his move. Now, however, we have to wait and see to what extent Tuchel will also rely on Laimer in the coming season.
