Leipzig close to giving up in pursuit of Patrik Schick

John Solano

Patrik Schick’s future remains extremely uncertain as it is being reported that RB Leipzig are close to bowing out of the race to find a permanent deal for the Czech attacker, who joined them on loan last summer.

German outlet, Bild, has reported today that Julian Nagelsmann’s side has waived the white flag in their pursuit of a permanent transfer for the ex-Sampdoria man.

Leipzig possessed a €29 million option, which expired in June, to make Schick’s transfer permanent, but they deemed the figure too expensive. Since that time, the Germans have been in negotiations with Roma, but they haven’t been able find an agreement with the Giallorossi.

The 24 year-old, though, could still remain in Germany. As it’s reported that both Bayer Leverkusen and Hertha Berlin are interested in his services.
