Leipzig increasingly confident that Laimer will stay rather than join Bayern

RB Leipzig CEO Oliver Mintzlaff says "there is a strong tendency" that Konrad Laimer will remain at Red Bull Arena rather than join Bayern.
At RB Leipzig, there is growing confidence that Konrad Laimer will not be moving to Bayern München this summer.

"There is a strong tendency that he will stay with us," said RB Leipzig CEO Oliver Mintzlaff in an interview with Leipziger Volkszeitung.

"He's an incredible performer. That's why FC Bayern want him," added the Leipzig chief.

According to reports, it would take an offer of €30 million to prize Laimer away from Leipzig this summer.

As things stand, Laimer will be available on a free transfer next summer, when his contract expires.
