Manchester United, Liverpool and Newcastle may reportedly have to wait a little longer to attempt a transfer deal for Bayer Leverkusen wonderkid Florian Wirtz.
The 18-year-old is a huge prospect and has been a joy to watch in the Bundesliga in recent times, but he now faces a lengthy spell out after suffering what looked like a serious knee injury.
The Daily Express have reported on Wirtz’s problem, which Leverkusen expect to keep him out for several months, while the report also notes that the likes of Man Utd, Liverpool and Newcastle have been interested in him in recent times.
One has to hope the Germany international can make as quick a recovery as possible and get back on the pitch again later this year to continue what should be a very promising career.
