FC Bayern Munich, rumor: competition for FCB at Alexander Nübel?

Manuel Neuer’s injury could set off a goalkeeping carousel across Europe. As various media have recently reported, Alexander Nübel is currently the most likely candidate as an interim solution at Bayern Munich. His advisor recently confirmed the interest of the record champions. However, there could also be competition.

Because like them BamS reported, Ajax was also recently interested in a Nübel transfer. Accordingly, the Dutch record champions want to replace their 39-year-old goalkeeper Remko Pasveer. A winter transfer was also part of the considerations. On top of that, Monaco would need a replacement if they embark on a move. According to the tabloid, Koen Casteels was a consideration of the French. However, no request is said to have been received from VfL Wolfsburg.

A Nübel transfer could therefore trigger a real chair back in the goalkeeper positions. However, it is still completely unclear whether the goalkeeper and his environment will get involved with FC Bayern. Recently there have been reports of a tense relationship between them and the Neuer side.

Accordingly, there are also rumors about other players. Croatia keeper Dominik Livakovic and Morocco’s Bono both drew the attention of several clubs at the World Cup. Keylor Navas and Yann Sommer were also recently mentioned in connection with FC Bayern.

FC Bayern Munich, News: Josip Stanisic hopes Modric will stay in the long term

Josip Stanisic from FC Bayern Munich hopes that Luka Modric will continue in the Croatian national team – if possible until the European Championship in 2024. “I’m pretty sure he will continue,” said the full-back MagentaTV: “We have seen that he is still an outstanding footballer. He is the best footballer ever in our country. When I first met him I was a bit intimidated.”

Modric himself had at beIN Sports already announced that they definitely want to play the Final Four of the Nations League next summer. “After that I will think about the Euros,” explained the Real Madrid star.

Stanisic, Modric and Co. won a bronze medal with the Croatians at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. FC Bayern’s right-back played 90 minutes in the match for third place against Morocco. In addition, he had to be content with a place on the bench. “We’re a big family,” explained the 22-year-old: “No one gets mad if they don’t play. That’s always the most important thing in a big tournament.”

Stanisic only made his debut for the national team in October last year. Since then he has played eight competitive games.

FC Bayern Munich, News: Thomas Müller has a favorite in the World Cup final
