Chelsea-bound midfielder Melanie Leupolz may yet get the opportunity to pull on a Bayern Munich shirt again with the FLYERALARM Frauen-Bundesliga set to resume once deemed safe to do so.
The 26-year-old German international midfielder will officially move to Kingsmeadow on a free transfer when her contract with Bayern Munich expires on 30 June.
With the FLYERALARM Frauen-Bundesliga currently suspended due to the Coronavirus pandemic, it could be that Leupolz has played her final game for her current club. There also remains the possibility of a final Bayern Munich swansong for Leupolz though with league officials having revealed via their official website that 11 of the 12 clubs in the league have this week voted for the season to resume when it is deemed safe to do so.
Should the campaign be in a position to resume before the end of June, the midfielder could have the chance to end her six-year spell with the German club with a farewell appearance.
In Leupolz, Chelsea are acquiring the services of a born leader, a player who is the captain of the current Bayern Munich side. The midfielder has made 93 FLYERALARM Frauen-Bundesliga appearances for her club in which she has contributed 11 goals.
Leupolz will wear the number eight shirt for Chelsea next season while she has agreed a three-year deal in South West London. The midfielder recently revealed that she opted to join The Blues to win trophies while she had been very impressed with the club’s style of football.
