Transfer Talk: Bayern Munich may need €100m for transfer of Leverkusen's Florian Wirtz

The top European leagues have closed the summer transfer window! Many clubs waited until the very last minute to complete their transfers after a busy summer of international football. Check out our evaluation of the most important signings and all the deals. The window will close in January but that doesn't mean that rumours will stop coming.
TOP STORY: Wirtz may require 100m from Bayern

According to AS, Bayern Munich will have to pay at least 100 millions if they want to sign Florian Wirtz, Bayer Leverkusen's attacking midfielder.

Bayern was already aware of Bayern's interest and it will only grow. Bayern's third-youngest international from Germany has already scored four goals and assisted four others in five games across the Bundesliga, Europa League, and Bundesliga.

Although the contract for the 18-year old runs until 2026, the report suggests that a move could occur in 2023. Although Bayern has apparently reached a presumptive deal with Hans Wirtz (Fernando's father) and agent, it is likely that any club interested in signing Florian will have to fork out a substantial sum.

Bayer paid Chelsea 80m for Kai Havertz's transfer to 2020. The logic behind this sum is important, as the Bundesliga side are aware that Wirtz may surpass the man who scored the Champions League final goal.

Bayern may have difficulty persuading Wirtz, even though they offer enough to make Leverkusen fans swoon. Wirtz already said that he had always dreamed of playing in Barcelona as a child and that "that hasn’t changed".

According to the Sun, Dean Henderson asked for a loan move from Manchester United in January. Old Trafford academy graduate Henderson had hoped to be the Red Devils' No. 1 but was unable to play due to the coronavirus. David De Gea took his chance to prove he was Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s main man, saving Mark Noble's penalty in the win over West Ham United. Henderson is now seeking a temporary move to gain more minutes.

According to Calciomercato, Tommaso pobega impressed so much during his loan period from AC Milan Milan to Torino that Il Toro want to sign him permanently. The Serie A side is frustrated that the loan agreement does not allow for a permanent deal. They are still open to negotiations.

After an 11-year tenure with West Ham United, Winston Reid has resigned by mutual consent. The 33-year old will be free to search for a new club, after he spent last season on loan at Sporting Kansas City or Brentford.

Calciomercato reports that Alexis Sanchez will be allowed by Internazionale to leave during the January transfer window. According to reports, the Chilean is averse to playing for Inter this term and would prefer to move to Sevilla, Real Betis, or Marseille after he leaves San Siro.

Foot Mercato reports that Clement Grenier, a free agent, has been contacted by many European countries, including Spain and Italy, since his departure from Stade Rennais. Contact has been made with Ligue 1 clubs and the midfielder is believed to be interested in Major League Soccer teams as well as Qatari clubs. However, the 30-year-old would have to wait until January which could prove to be too long.
