Goalkeeper Alexander Nübel keeps all options open for the summer. “We’ll see what’s best for me. Basically, of course, I’m open to everything,” said the AS Monaco keeper after the 3-2 (1-0) win in the second round of the Europa League at Bayer Leverkusen.
The 26-year-old is on loan to the Monegasques from record champions Bayern Munich until the end of the season. “I feel very, very well. I play a lot of games,” said Nübel, his focus is “as of now” fully on Monaco. The keeper has already made 32 competitive appearances for the eight-time French champions this season.
The former Schalke was loaned to the Principality in the summer of 2021 to get more match practice. Nübel is not surprised that Bayern signed a top-class replacement in Yann Sommer after Manuel Neuer’s absence.
“It was clear that they would get a goalkeeper. A club like Bayern Munich will always have top goalkeepers there. This is a top 3 club, there will always be goalkeepers you have to compete with,” said Nübel about a possible one Three-way battle in the event of a return to Munich in the summer.
Neuer, who will be out until the end of the season due to a broken leg, has a contract in Munich until 2024. Sommer signed a working paper until 2025 after moving from Borussia Mönchengladbach.
