Real Madrid and FC Barcelona are two teams that have the habit of signing promising young players, with the aim of strengthening their squads in the medium and long term. One of the names that both teams like the most is Florian Wirtz, one of the most outstanding players in the Bundesliga. At the moment, the 19-year-old is recovering from a serious knee injury, but that has not prevented several European giants from keeping a close eye on his situation.
However, both Joan Laporta and Florentino Perez are aware that closing this operation will not be easy. Both clubs are not the only ones interested in acquiring the striker's services, as Bayern Munich have also joined the race for his signature and are thinking of stealing a piece from another of their rivals in the German First Division.

The 'Bavarian Giants', currently coached by Julian Nagelsmann, are historically adept at selecting the best players from the rest of the German game to reinforce their squad, and Wirtz is no exception given the 19-year-old's tremendous potential.
The Bayer Leverkusen player has been a standout performer for his team, until the knee injury he suffered in March, which prevented him from finishing the season. In total, he had 10 goals and 14 assists in 31 games played with Leverkusen.
Bayern are ready for anything
Florian Wirtz is under contract with the German side at the Bay Arena until June 30, 2027, after reaching an agreement last summer to extend his contract. Despite this, Bayern Munich believe that this is not a problem as they have set their sights on the young German midfielder.
And the Allianz Arena is determined to wait and make his signing in the next transfer window, in which a number of changes are expected in the Bavarian squad after the transfers that took place in this transfer window.
