The Bavarians have signed Konrad Laimer from Bundesliga rivals RB Leipzig to a four-year contract extension until 2027.
Bayern Munich have announced the acquisition of RB Leipzig midfielder Konrad Laimer on a free transfer, according to the club’s official website.
The transfer has been in the works for some time, with the Austrian midfielder being the primary priority for former Bayern Munich manager Julian Nagelsmann.
The 26-year-old has signed a contract extension with the German champions until 2027, following in the footsteps of Dayot Upamecano and Marcel Sabizter in recent years.

Laimer, a brilliant Red Bull School of Football player, made 190 appearances for Leipzig in all competitions.
He has been a key component in Die Roten Bullen’s supremacy in the Bundesliga in recent seasons, and he was also a member of the 2023 DFB Pokal-winning team.
“It’s a dream come true for me.”
“FC Bayern is one of the most powerful clubs in the world.”
“I shall give my all for the sake of the club and the supporters,” said Laimer.
“FC Bayern always has the most ambitious goals, just like me.” I’ve come to the correct location. I can only give my all in every training session, and that’s what I’ll do from the start. “I can hardly stand it.”
Given that he was the key priority for his former coach, Tuchel’s plans for Laimer will be intriguing to watch.
The arrival of Laimer casts uncertainty on the futures of Ryan Gravenberch, Leon Goretzka, and Marcel Sabitzer, all of whom have been linked with transfers away from Allianz Arena.
Gravenberch struggled in his debut season with the Bavarians, unable to establish himself as a first-team regular.
Sabitzer, who just completed a loan spell with Manchester United, is not in Tuchel’s plans.
Gortezka is also no longer regarded as untouchable by Bayern, and any new arrivals might result in his departure.
Kimmich’s future is also unknown, since Barcelona has identified him as a possible replacement for Sergio Busquets.
Bayern, on the other hand, has no plans to sell the German international.
