Manchester City suffered a crushing defeat at the hands of Paris Saint-Germain as the UEFA Champions League group round got underway. The Parisians cruised through City thanks to an early goal from IdrissaGueye and another from none other than Lionel Messi.
Manchester City is always active in the transfer window, despite their UCL difficulties, and are now trying to recruit another brilliant future player. Manchester City is scouting Bayer Leverkusen attacking midfielder Florian Wirtz, according to Christian Falk.
Wirtz is an offensive midfielder who can also play as an inverted winger on the left side. He is a very dynamic midfielder who covers a lot of ground and has a clear offensive mindset.
Chelsea, Manchester United, and Arsenal are among the clubs that have expressed interest in the 18-year-old attacking midfielder. Bayern Munich is leading the hunt for Wirtz’s signature, thus any Premier League club will find it difficult to sign him.
Kevin de Bruyne, Bernardo Silva, Ilkay Gundogan, Rodri, Fernandinho, Phil Foden, and Jack Grealish are just a few of the players in City’s midfield who are at the top of their game.
Hans-Joachim Wirtz, Wirtz’s father, and the agent have stated that Wirtz would like to spend at least two years at Bayer Leverkusen.
He told Bild that “Florian definitely wants to play a good role in Leverkusen for the next two years, what comes after that, we do not know yet. But his focus right now is only on Bayer and the national team.”
The kid has had a fantastic start to the 2021/2022 season, scoring four goals and assisting four others in just five league games for Bayer Leverkusen. In 29 games last season, he only had five goals and five assists. This demonstrates how far the athlete has progressed offensively in such a short time.
