FC Bayern Munich, rumor: New developments about Yann Sommer?
FC Bayern Munich has probably picked up the pace again in negotiations for a transfer from Yann Sommer. Like the Swiss View would like to know, the record champions are currently in talks with Borussia Mönchengladbach again. Recently there have been differences in the transfer fee. Several media reported that Gladbach required between eight and ten million euros to finance a successor to the goalkeeper.
Bavaria is said to have submitted an offer of around four million euros. The newspaper speculates that Bavaria could be willing to find a middle ground and, for example, pay a fixed sum of five to six million euros and negotiate variable bonuses that would increase the sum to up to eight million euros.
A decision is expected in the next few days. Gladbach’s search for an alternative has apparently not been very fruitful so far. According to the report, Jonas Omlin (Montpellier) and Philipp Köhn (RB Salzburg) should be candidates for the summer successor. For this, however, all parties must first agree.
the tz also reports that Bayern have decided on summer as their preferred candidate. Although other goalkeepers have also been considered, there is currently no real alternative. Bayern start the calendar year with their first competitive game in Leipzig on Friday.
FC Bayern Munich, rumor: Julian Nagelsmann is probably putting pressure on
Julian Nagelsmann is said to be pushing internally for a new goalkeeper to come up. That reports the tz. Accordingly, the coach is concerned about the goals of the season – and about his own job. The 35-year-old knows that there could quickly be discussions about him in the Champions League games against Paris Saint-Germain, although he has nothing to do with the injuries.
Most recently, the Bayern coach made diplomatic statements at the press conference before the Salzburg friendly. He trusts Sven Ulreich, but “in general we still have a duty to get another goalkeeper, regardless of whether he is number one or number two”.
FC Bayern Munich, rumor: Gregor Kobel apparently a candidate for the future
If Yann Sommer were to switch to Bayern Munich, he would probably only be a transitional candidate. In the long term, the Munich team will continue to have to look for a successor to Manuel Neuer. A candidate for this is according to the table football Gregory Kobel. Accordingly, the record champions are dealing with the Swiss as a new signing from 2024.
However, a transfer for Bayern in 2024 could also be an expensive and difficult affair. On the one hand, Kobel’s contract with BVB runs until 2026, on the other hand, Dortmund should have little interest in sending one of their top performers to their biggest national rival again and at the same time solving a problem there in the long term.
