JUST IN: Leeds United defender bid his colleagues farewell as negotiations about Elland Road were about to begin…

Earlier this week, Wober grabbed headlines for all the wrong reasons when Austria lost their opening Euro 2024 match 1-0 to Didier Deschamps’ France due to a headed own goal by the central defender.

The Austrian’s bad night in Dusseldorf came to an end when the 26-year-old was substituted on 59 minutes after receiving a warning for a late challenge on Ousmane Dembele during the game.

Max Wober now shares what he has been told by Leeds United about his future  this summer

The footballer adds in an interview with the German publication BILD that while his future at Elland Road is still up in the air, negotiations are underway to finally decide where he will play football next season.

Leeds has informed me that discussions will take place following the conclusion of the European Championships. They want me to focus on Austria for the time being.”

In order to exercise his option to depart for the entirety of 2023–2024, Wober used a loan release provision in his Leeds contract last summer. He then joined Borussia Monchengladbach in the German Bundesliga, albeit it is unlikely that he will stay there in the long run.
“I bid everyone in Gladbach farewell and expressed my gratitude for a great year. I haven’t heard anything further as of yet.

The defender continued, “My dream scenario would be to win a European championship with Austria and then take a nice two or three week vacation.”

Wober has a contract with Leeds that expires in the summer of 2027, and according to German reports, the club values him at about £13 million.

At this point, Monchengladbach is unwilling to pay that specific asking price; instead, they value the defender at approximately £6 million.
