Matthijs de Ligt from FC Bayern Munich has spoken out in favor of signing a new goalkeeper after Manuel Neuer’s injury.
Asked about the ongoing rumors about Gladbach’s keeper Yann Sommer, the Dutchman said at the press conference in German: “It’s difficult for me to say. Manuel has been missing for six months now, which of course isn’t good for the club. But it’s not mine Task to say which goalkeeper we should buy.”
Nevertheless, it would be “nice to see a new goalkeeper on the pitch,” said de Ligt, adding: “But I can’t influence that. As players, we don’t have much of an opinion.”
After his skiing accident, Bayern will be out of Neuer for sure until the end of the season. how sports1 reported, the German record champions are said to have doubts as to whether the 36-year-old will be fit again at the start of the new season.
Therefore, Bavaria should also be ready to commit to a long-term replacement. Summer is still traded as the favourite.
