West Brom have made new contract offer to Reyes Cleary
West Brom have made a new contract offer to Reyes Cleary but are wary of competition from Bayern Munich, according to the Daily Mail.
Albion’s 17-year-old centre forward is yet to play for Valerien Ismael’s side but has been a regular for their under-18s and under-23s so far in 2021-22, catching the eyes with his strength and ability in front of goal.
Cleary is yet to pen a professional deal, and the Bundesliga giants are looking to take advantage of that having been impressed with his performances following some scouting trips.
The teenage sensation has bagged almost 20 goals for West Brom youth teams this term, and that prolific form is keeping clubs across Europe on their toes.
Borussia Dortmund, Schalke, Hoffenheim and some Premier League sides have also been linked with Cleary, but The Hawthorns outfit will be hoping their new deal is enough to keep suitors away.
They risk losing him for just a little compensation should Bayern swoop, but that changes once he signs a professional deal.
Ismael is not likely to hand him his first-team debut this season, but the youngster has everything it takes to establish himself as a star for the club going forward.
Cleary should not be too eager to leave West Brom as his chances would surely come.
He still has a lot of growing up and hard work ahead of him before becoming a superstar, and everything is in place at the club for that to continue.
The kid will be taking time before making a decision, and earning Premier League promotion could boost their chances of convincing to sign.
