Andrea Natali joins Bayer Leverkusen as Tah gets closer to the exit door

Italian center-back Andrea Natali has officially joined Bayer Leverkusen, leaving Barcelona and their renowned academy, La Masia. Born in 2008, the teenager’s move to Bayer Leverkusen comes with a compensation fee of around €1 million.

Natali’s transfer could be a strategic move for Bayer Leverkusen, potentially filling the shoes of Jonathan Tah. Germany’s international has been heavily linked with a transfer to Bayern Munich in recent days. Despite interest from the Premier League and the Saudi Pro League, Tah’s priority remains Bayern Munich, and he is keen on making the move.

Bayern and Leverkusen remain in regular contact over Jonathan Tah. Normal negotiations are ongoing, and nothing has changed in the situation. Both Bayern’s sporting director Max Eberl and coach Vincent Kompany are eager to bring the defender to their team. Both, the Bavarian giants and the player are optimistic about getting a deal done this window, as the Tah has no plans of extending his Leverkusen contract.

As the situation develops, Bayer Leverkusen has already secured a promising young talent in Andrea Natali, ensuring they are well-prepared for any potential changes in their defensive lineup.
