The Bavarians have reportedly agreed on personal terms with Leipzig midfielder Marcel Sabitzer.

Bayern Munich reportedly have a verbal agreement in place with RB Leipzig midfielder Marcel Sabitzer.

However, the Bavarians are pondering over a summer transfer as Leipzig want around 15m euros for their star midfielder.

The Bundesliga champions wonder whether it will be wise to add another player to an already stacked midfield.

They have recently confirmed the contract extension of Joshua Kimmich, while Leon Goretzka is the next to follow him.

Corentin Tolisso, despite down the pecking order, has lesser chances of leaving Allianz Arena this summer as Bayern have received no offers for the Frenchman thus far. Michael Cuisance could go out on loan as the 22-year-old is looking for regular game time.

Sabitzer has entered the final year of his contract at Leipzig, and he is eager to join hands with his former manager Julian Nagelsmann.

The Austrian international has become one of the best midfielders in the Bundesliga, and Nagelsmann has played a big part in it.

Sabitzer would demand to be a starter should he move to Bayern, but players like Joshua Kimmich, Goretzka and Thomas Muller are pivotal to Nagelsmann.

Furthermore, the young German manager had earlier stated that Goretzka would be central to his plans, and he can become one of the best in his position.

Nagelsmann, while addressing Goretzka’s future: I’ll continue to focus on the sports side of things and show him he can be one of the most dangerous midfielders in Europe. He has potential to get even better.”

RB Leipzig chief Florian Scholz has recently confirmed that Bayern haven’t enquired about Sabitzer.
