RB Leipzig manager Domenico Tedesco has confirmed that the club will not be selling midfielder Konrad Laimer this summer, despite significant interest from Bayern Munich.

Laimer is in the final year of his contract with Leipzig and made it clear that he wanted to join Bayern this summer, but according to Tedesco, a failure to agree the terms of a transfer has now seen the move collapse.

"It's understandable that Bayern wanted him, but we are keeping him," Tedesco told Sky Germany.

"He's staying. That's been clear to me for the last four weeks."

Laimer was previously recommended to Manchester United by former Red Bull guru Ralf Rangnick, but the Austrian had his sights set on Bayern and refused the offer of a new contract in the hope of forcing through a move to the Allianz Arena.

However, Leipzig appear to have made a final decision on Laimer's future, despite the risk of losing him on a free transfer at the end of the current season.
