All that remains, as per Plettenberg, is for the two sides to agree on a transfer fee. Plettenberg went on to state that the German giants are quite amenable to the move, hoping to secure €15-20 million as soon as possible with an aim towards immediately reinvesting it in players such as Konrad Laimer and Mathys Tel.
