Last season Mitchell Weiser was only loaned out to SV Werder Bremen – now the right-back is about to make a permanent commitment.
Weiser zu Werder: According to consistent media reports from “Deichstube” and “Bild”, Mitchell Weiser is about to make a free transfer to SV Werder Bremen. The 28-year-old was loaned to the Green-Whites from Bayer 04 Leverkusen last season, but recently it didn’t look like a permanent commitment would materialize.
Short, compact, clear
Was Weiser’s salary the sticking point so far? Leverkusen wanted to terminate Weiser’s contract, which ran until 2023, in order to enable a free transfer to the Weser. However, the right-back demanded a high compensation from Bayer for the termination of the contract. The reason: In Bremen he would have to forego his salary. According to “Bild”, Weiser has now gone down with his severance pay demands, while Werder is paying more salary than planned.
Medical check already completed: According to reports from the “Deichstube”, Weiser already completed his medical check on Friday, after which the contract should be signed.
