Actually, Bayern coach Julian Nagelsmann was already optimistic. He really wanted to sign Konrad Laimer from RB Leipzig. In his opinion, the Austrian fits well into the FC team Bayern Munich . And: The midfielder could also imagine a move to Munich. But now the tide has turned - and everything indicates that the deal is now bursting.
The main reason for this: Leipzig does not want to weaken further after the shaky start with two draws and at the same time insists on the transfer fee of 30 million euros. Nagelsmann's dream player Konrad Laimer has not been in this year's league due to his injury. This should change in the game against Union on Saturday Berlin change. The midfielder should then not only come back onto the field, but also bring RB the desired success again.Konrad Laimer wants to go to Bayern Munich. Bild: imago images/motivio
The managing director of RB Leipzig, Oliver Mintzlaff, now found clear words about the future of Laimer in Leipzig and said to the ' Leipziger Volkszeitung ': 'The tendency is very, very big that he stays with us.'
The FC courted Bayern recently around the player, even increased the transfer fee loudly 'Picture' to at least 23 million euros. That was probably not enough for the people of Leipzig. Now the negotiations have apparently been put on hold.
But: Abolished is not postponed. Bayern should now heed this motto.
After all, the midfield is currently well positioned even without Laimer. Especially since the Austrian Marcel Sabitzer seems to have finally arrived after a year. The good performance of the 28-year-old could make a transfer of Laimers superfluous for the time being.
Bayern boss Oliver Kahn also praised the midfielder: 'Marcel is performing solidly at the moment. You can only congratulate him on that,' he said. Recently he also dared to further change plans: 'As far as transfers are concerned, we are by and large done.'Marcel Sabitzer (right) and Konrad Laimer could play in the same team next season.

In addition, Laimer would be available on a free transfer after this season. His contract with Leipzig then expires. So there are many indications that a transfer of Laimers will be postponed until next season – if both sides are still interested in it.Source: watson.de
