Calendar of FC Barcelona

Florian Wirtz is to his 20 years the big star of the that seems that it goes to be the next champion of the Bundesliga. The jovencísimo offensive midfield player German is leading to the Bayer Leverkusen this course, adding already 13 goals and 18 assistances between all the competitions, and 7 so many and 10 alone passes in domestic competition. The germano, that lesionó gravely the past season, has left backwards any doubt that could have with him and has showed that is allocated to turn into one of the best players of the world.

A talentazo of his level does not happen unobserved in Europe and therefore almost all the 'big' want to have him in his rows sooner that late. FC Barcelona, Real Madrid, Manchester City, Liverpool or Paris Saint-Germain have showed interest in him, and specifically the 'reds' and the 'citizens' want him for this same summer. However, the rest of clubs are in luck, since it is almost impossible that the one of Pulheim go out of the Leverkusen to final of campaign.

The decision of Xabi Alonso to be still in the picture of the aspirin would have finished to convince to the 'perla' German to go on down the less until 2025 in the entity. This, as 'HITC', will do that Liverpool and City have to forget of the all of his incorporation for this market veraniego and have to expect a year to try ficharle. Therefore, madridistas and culés will have time to save, do numbers and try convince to Florian so that fiche by them.

Barça and Madrid would win a year more to be able to fichar to Wirtz

In this case, between culés and merengues seems that they could carry advantage the whites by 'fault' of Alonso. The current technician of the Bayer is the favoritísimo of the Madrid for suceder to Carlo Ancelotti in the bench, something that could suceder inside a season or to more take in 2026, when both finish his respective agreements. With the Spanish in the Bernabéu, Wirtz would approach a bit more, since both have a big relation and the donostiarra is knowing to take out his best football. Besides, this summer seems that Luka Modric will leave and in 2025 all aims that it will go out Toni Kroos, by what in the centre of the field madridista would remain a gap for a 'jugón' of his characteristics.

In the case of the Barça, his point more in favour for ficharle is the charm that has the footballer by his colours. "Always I wanted to be the best, of boy dreamed with playing in the Barça and this has not changed. Still I can expect. Had some posters hanged in the room, as the ones of Leo Messi, Dembélé or Aubameyang", commented in an interview in 2022. This could do that if the Barcelona attain to gather the sufficient money as to convince to the Leverkusen, something complicated for 2025, since they will have to be as little 90 or 100 million euros, could have the "himself" of the player before that the rest of teams, with the doubt of what would happen if Xabi Alonso finish in the Madrid.
