Report: Tah agrees contract with Bayern, tells Leverkusen he wants to leave

Jonathan Tah has reportedly agreed a contract with Bayern Munich until 2029 and told Bayer Leverkusen that he wants to leave the club.


Bayern Munich appear to have moved a step closer to signing Jonathan Tah from Bundesliga rivals Bayer Leverkusen.

According to Sky Germany, the Bavarians have agreed a deal with the centre-back until 2029.

The report also claims that Tah has told Bayer Leverkusen that he wants to move to the Allianz Arena.

What's still missing is an agreement between the clubs on a transfer fee, with negotiations expected to begin soon.

According to Bild, Bayern would be willing to pay €20 million for Tah, but Leverkusen want €40 million.

Tah, 28, is out of contract until 2025 and Leverkusen have made it clear that he will be sold this summer if he doesn't want to sign a new deal.

He was a key player for Leverkusen in their double-winning 2023/24 campaign, making 48 appearances with six goals and one assist to his name.

Should the clubs fail to reach an agreement, Bayern could instead make a move for Chelsea's Levi Colwill, who spent the 2023/24 season on loan at Brighton & Hove Albion, according to Sky.
