Moussa Diaby to sign new long term Bayer Leverkusen contract

Sky Germany has confirmed a report by French outlet RMC that Bayer Leverkusen attacker Moussa Diaby will sign a contract extension with the Bundesliga club until 2025.

The 21-year-old moved to Bayer Leverkusen from Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain in 2019 for €15 million and is expected to sign the contract extension tonight.

Per the report, Bayer Leverkusen received several offers for Diaby during the summer but with the departures of Kai Havertz and Kevin Volland, B04 were reluctant to let further attacking players leave the Bundesliga side.

The Frenchman has scored 12 and created 13 in 57 games in all competitions for Bayer Leverkusen, who currently sit top of the Bundesliga.

Speaking in November to Bundesliga.com, Diaby feels as though he’s improved since playing in the Bundesliga: “In order to play in the Bundesliga, you need a minimum level of cardio fitness. I think I’ve improved in this area since my arrival.

“And also in terms of my technical ability. You can always get better, but I think I’ve been making progress in this area. I hope to improve in other areas too because there are always things you can work on.”
