No exit clause for top talent 

Just one year after his last contract renewal, top talent Florian Wirtz has once again renewed his contract at Bayer Leverkusen. The 19-year-old national team player, who has suffered an ACL injury last March, is now under contract until June 30, 2027. Transfermarkt understands that there is no exit clause in his new contract. Until suffering his injury, Wirtz was directly involved in 24 goals in 31 games across all competitions. 

Wirtz joined Leverkusen in January 2020 from local rivals 1. FC Köln and quickly established himself in the first team. The teenager was involved in 41 games in 78 games. Wirtz also debuted for Germany’s national team in September and has since played four times for his country. Wirtz has since increased his market value to €70 million, which makes him one of the 100 most valuable players on the planet. “From my point of view, the development in the past two years was almost breathtaking and certainly not foreseeable in this form,” Wirtz said. “I know that I also have to thank the team for it.”

“The contract renewal was the result of many constructive talks over the last few weeks,” departing director of sport Rudi Völler said in a club statement. “In those talks, we were able to provide one of the best up-and-coming German players of the coming decade a clear perspective. On top of that, we also have a fantastic squad that will underline Florian’s strengths. Added future director of sport and current sporting director Simon Rolfes: “Bayer Leverkusen and Wirtz is already an extraordinary success story. In talks with Florian and his family, we decided to continue the path that we have started in 2020 for the foreseeable future.”
