Bayern farewell for Chelsea-bound ace remains a possibility

The prospect of Chelsea-bound midfielder Melanie Leupolz making further appearances for current club Bayern Munich before her scheduled departure has increased with the DFB having issued hygiene guidelines to participating clubs in the FLYERALARM Frauen-Bundesliga.

The 26-year-old German international ace is out of contract at Bayern Munich on 30 June and she has signed a pre-contract agreement with Barclays FA Women’s Super League club Chelsea which will initially see her spend the next three years of her career at Kingsmeadow.

Like most of football in Europe, the German FLYERALARM Frauen-Bundesliga is currently suspended but with the men’s league re-commencing next weekend, the DFB, The German Football Association, are committed to looking at ways to resume the women’s top flight in the coming weeks.

The DFB have now confirmed on their official website that participating FLYERALARM Frauen-Bundesliga clubs have been issued with guidance on various health and hygiene matters to allow the competition to resume. The document includes advice on various matters such as team hotels, training, stadiums and domestic hygiene.

Similar documentation was previously issued to the men’s Bundesliga sides and should the continuation of that competition prove to be satisfactory, the resumption of the FLYERALARM Frauen-Bundesliga could soon follow, meaning that Chelsea-bound midfielder Leupolz could get at least one more opportunity to captain the club where she has spent the last six years of her career.

The Bayern Munich fans will almost certainly not have their opportunity to say farewell to Leupolz, any continuation of the campaign is likely to be behind-closed-doors.
