Bayern Munich signs Konrad Laimer to bolster midfield
Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich have announced the signing of RB Leipzig midfielder Konrad Laimer on a four-year deal. The 26-year-old Austrian international, who joined Leipzig in 2017 from Red Bull Salzburg, has made an impressive 190 appearances during his time at the club.
The move comes as no surprise, with Laimer confirming that he would be leaving Leipzig after their German Cup win earlier this year. His addition to Bayern’s already strong midfield is sure to make them even more formidable next season.
“I’m thrilled to be joining such a prestigious club,” said Laimer. “Bayern always sets high goals for themselves – just like I do – and I know I’m in the right place here.”
Bavarians continue their dominance
This new acquisition by Bayern further cements their position as the team to beat in Germany. They won yet another Bundesliga title last season, finishing five points ahead of third-placed Leipzig.
With players like Robert Lewandowski and Thomas Muller leading the line up front and now with Laimer strengthening their midfield options, it’s hard not to see them repeating their success again next year.
Austrian International eager for success at Bavarian giants
Laimer will undoubtedly be hoping that this move will also help him take his game to the next level. He has been one of Leipzig’s most consistent performers over recent seasons but knows that playing for a club like Bayern brings its own unique challenges and expectations.
“It’s a dream come true for me,” added Laimer. “But now it’s time to work hard every day on improving myself and helping the team achieve even greater success.”
Bayern’s fans will be eagerly anticipating their first glimpse of Laimer in action, as they look to continue their dominance both domestically and in Europe.
