Rolfes Asserts Wirtz’s Loyalty to Leverkusen Amid Transfer Rumors, Defying Interest

Elite clubs like Real Madrid, Barcelona, and the Manchester sides are admiring Florian Wirtz’s talent, but Bayer Leverkusen’s Simon Rolfes confirms he will remain with the team. Wirtz’s exceptional performance under Xabi Alonso’s leadership has been remarkable, as Leverkusen aims for an unbeaten treble. The team had an undefeated Bundesliga season, winning 28 out of 34 matches. They now gear up for Europa League and DFB-Pokal finals. Wirtz’s contributions with 11 goals and 11 assists earned him the Bundesliga Player of the Year award. He has also shone in the Europa League season. Despite interest from top clubs, Leverkusen is firm in keeping Wirtz. Rolfes says, “His future is here, and he’s content with his development.” When Bayern Munich lost the Bundesliga in 2012, they recruited from Borussia Dortmund. Reflecting on this, Rolfes mentions changes in the European market scene, emphasizing the international competition across leagues. Bayern had tried to sign Alonso without success, but Rolfes knew the player would stay. He believes in focusing on strengths and offering players the best opportunities.
