    So, Brandt's dad is also his agent and this is what he said,
    “Julian hasn’t made any decision as to his future yet. He hasn’t spoken with any of those responsible at Bayern such as [Karl-Heinz] Rummenigge, [Uli] Hoeness or [Michael] Reschke, nor has he spoken to [Carlo] Ancelotti,” confirmed his father, going on to double these sentiments down in German tabloid Kicker by saying, “It’s a hoax. Julian was never in a situation to have to make a decision. Accordingly he hasn’t decided.”

    It's exhausting following transfers in the modern age, and going through the ups and downs associated with the process of being linked, links going cold, then hot again, then seeing someone sign for another club, only for those stories to be proven false, links getting hot again and then finally missing out (or not). Roller-coaster.

    Sorely tempted to just give it all a miss and only start thinking and commenting about signings once they're actually here...

    A bit of a puff piece but goes into Brandt's early career etc. etc., quotes from old teammates. Most interesting part is this towards the end:

    Sources have told ESPN FC that the amount of playing time will be a significant factor in any potential transfer for Brandt this summer. He is not interested in being a squad player.

    If this is true Liverpool look more likely than Bayern, but that sounds like a generic thing everyone says before they go and get splinters in their arse.

    In fairness, everything I've read about this lad, both quotes from himself and those that know him, suggest he is very level-headed and unlikely to be lured simply by a massive pay-check. I really do think we're still in the running for this one, on the basis of being able to offer him first-team football at a club willing to play and invest in youth.

    Yup, and his dad is still his agent, and so will look to Brandt's best interest, not the biggest payday (you would hope anyway). Sounds like the sort of player you would want to gamble on. I hope we can sort this one out.

    I reckon this is a done deal once CL is assured.

    Yes, he wants to play (and I also don't think this is purely about the money for Brandt). Which is why there are many rumours going around, that Douglas Costa, who's been quite open about how unhappy he is about his situation at Bayern, will leave the club, which would make more time on the pitch much more realistic for Brandt, especially given the age and injury problems of Ribery and Robben, Coman's future is also pretty undecided I guess, Bayern still haven't activated the buy clause for him as far as I know.
    Add to that, that the guy who was at least partially responsible in convincing Brandt to join Leverkusen is now at Bayern.
    Not saying this will or won't happen, but I'm not sure if Bayern are really out of the picture yet.

    Of course they are, as always with talented German players. LFC, as any other club interested, face an uphill battle there. I reckon he'll go to Bayern.

    (That said, if Bayern want to let us Costa... one hell of a player if there ever was one!)

    Yes, I know, basically tried saying the same thing before, as soon as Bayern stepped in, but probably less eloquently.
    I was just reacting to people who said this is almost a done deal for LFC. Nevermind.

    Sounds like he has more chance of being first choice at Bayern than here, oddly.

    I thought the same. Robben and Ribery and performing better than their age suggests they should but it's high time Bayern brought in their future replacements. Coman looks set to return and if Costa also leaves, they will need two wide players who offer pace, skill, creativity... (Another raid on Dortmund, this time for Dembele and Mor, eh?) That said, I don't think there are many players who'd walk into their first XI. Furthermore, when Coutinho and Mane are fit and on form, does he walk into ours?

    He's a better chance here than Bayern, I would think. Robben and Ribery aren't young, but they aren't going to roll over and play dead if Brandt shows up next year. Good luck telling those two aging stars this 21 yr old kid is taking your place. Long term makes sense...short term maybe Brandt has limited opportunities and waits for an injury to get a shot at Bayern next year.

    IMO if Bayern get bounced out of the CL by Real (it's "only" the quarterfinals) it will make it more likely they go bonkers buying players and thus grab Brandt, so let's hope for a deep run!

    Rolling over playing dead is kind of Ribery's and especially Robben's thing - at least on the pitch;-)
    Apart from that - right now is one of the very, very few times in the last couple of years where both of them are fit to play at the same time for more than like 3 weeks.

    Ha! Wouldn't have to wait that long then. Haven't followed them (Bayern) much this year. Watched CL game yesterday, but guess that doesn't count. Bayern certainly favorites to get this one over the line.

    I've read somewhere that Bayern will go for Lorenzo Insigne if Costa leaves...and if i think about that, it might be true that Bayern would like "to keep Carlo happy" with one ore two italian signings(as they did with Pep)

    I'll admit Bayern are a massive club and a threat to us with this signing. But why is everyone resigned to the fact we will lose out to Bayern?

    Because if he goes to Bayern, we'll have already accepted the fact we lost out on our primary target. If he comes to us, it will be so much sweeter.

    Secondly, it's rare for us to beat other clubs to a signing, thats not even just clubs like Bayern, but other clubs of a similar tier to us.

    Mkrian, coasta, willian, salah, Sigurdson, Eriksen, Shakiri, Gotze, Konaplyanka - the list of players who didn't come here goes on and on. Even last summer, Celtic Dembele, Dortmund Dembele, Pulisic, Dahoud, Zielinski, Hector. I guess only when we win few trophies, when we go in for a player - the players will start pushing their clubs to sell them to us.
    All this are only from BRs term. During Kenny's diving champion Young and Jones and Auguero (apparently fan), Gomes and who knows what all snubbed us...
