Real Madrid ‘started working to sign Florian Wirtz’ but want to wait until summer 2025 for Bayer Leverkusen star


Real Madrid are reportedly eyeing Bayer Leverkusen’s Florian Wirtz as their marquee signing for the 2025-26 season.

It will be a busy summer for Los Blancos as Kylian Mbappe is on the market after announcing he will leave PSG. However, the planning seems to have already extended beyond next season, and Wirtz is said to be interested.

Wirtz, 21, has been crucial for Xabi Alonso this season as he approaches an unprecedented treble unbeaten season.

The Germany international has scored 37 goals in all competitions this season, scoring 18 goals and providing 19 assists.

His numbers have seemingly caught the attention of the Spanish giants, and according to Spanish outlet Marca, Madrid have begun working on signing the young star for the summer of 2025.

Real Madrid have a knack for scouting young talent and to make sure they get who they want, they will plant the seeds early. The transfers of Jude Bellingham, Aurelien Tchouameni and Eduardo Camavinga are good examples of it working.

Next up is 17-year-old Brazilian superstar Endrick. The forward will arrive at the Bernabeu in the summer, but the official announcement of his transfer was not until 2022.

No wonder the 14-time Champions League winners like Wirtz, he was an integral part of Bayer Leverkusen’s record-breaking 49-game unbeaten run.

Wirtz joined Leverkusen as a 17-year-old and made an impression as soon as he walked through the door. However, his progress suffered a setback in March 2022 when he tore the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) in his knee.

However, under Xabi Alonso, the attacking midfielder hasn’t looked back since returning from injury at the start of 2023.

Wirtz can deliver as well as finish, and he shows up in the biggest moments. He scored his first career hat-trick in a 5–0 rout of Werder Bremen to secure Leverkusen’s first ever Bundesliga title.

If the German midfielder ends up at Real Madrid, he will have to get used to the feeling.

Former Bundesliga star Bellingham found that out this season. Los Blancos clinched a record-extending 36th La Liga title on May 4 and will face Borussia Dortmund for the Champions League at Wembley on June 1.

If Wirtz does indeed sign with Madrid in 2025 and form a partnership with Bellingham, Los Blancos’ midfield move could be complete.
