Instead of switching to BVB: Is Brandt staying with Bayer now?

After his last strong performance in the Bundesliga, national player Julian Brandt has become even more popular. The offensive man of Bayer Leverkusen, under head coach Peter Bosz, convinces in a more central role especially as a game designer and preparer.

For weeks now there has been speculation that, among other things, the league competitor Borussia Dortmund should be interested in the 23-year-old. The BVB is supposed to be ready to pay the exit clause over 25 million euros for Brandt in order to get the Leverkusen star, who now brings it to six gates and twelve assistants, to Dortmund.

But Brandt wants to leave Leverkusen in the first place, where things are going really well for him personally as well as for the team under Coach Peter Bosz? Last but not least, there was a growing suspicion that the DFB would be able to stay in the Werkself after the summer if the team still qualified for the royal class.

At the moment, the chances are again pretty good that Bayer could still advance to the desired fourth table place. In comparison to the direct competitors Eintracht Frankfurt, Borussia Monkngladbach and VfL Wolfsburg, Leverkusen has recently clearly shown the best shape and ranks now at the same time with the entry into place 5.

Brandt himself wants to stay open until the end of the season, as it continues with him sportingly: “Stand now I will stay”, the native Bremer was quoted on Sunday evening. The Leverkusen leaders will have noted this with goodwill.
