Leipzig clearly do not wish to sell Josko Gvardiol this summer and according to Sport Bild, would like to do something similar. They have reportedly offered to increase Gvardiol's wages from €2 to €7 million per year, tying the Croatian to the club through 2027.
A greater release clause would be included, as the 20-year-old's current contract expires all the way in 2026.
