In January, FC Bayern was rejected by Moroccan goalkeeper Bono (32) when he was looking for a replacement for the seriously injured Manuel Neuer. That reports Relevo.
There was contact between the German record champions and the keeper of FC Sevilla. However, he rejected a transfer on the grounds that he felt very comfortable with his family in the Andalusian metropolis and did not want to leave Seville during the mixed season. This cancellation was “surprised” on Säbener Straße, they say.
After Manuel Neuer’s injury shortly after the World Cup in Qatar, numerous goalkeepers were traded to Bayern. Among others, Bono, who had previously shown strong performances at the World Cup finals in Morocco’s dress.
Ultimately, however, FCB signed Yann Sommer (34) from Bundesliga rivals Borussia Mönchengladbach. The Swiss came for eight million euros and signed a contract valid until 2024.
Things didn’t go well for Bono after his rejection of the Munich team in Seville. The 52-time Morocco international lost his regular place to Marko Dmitrovic under new coach José Luis Mendilibar. He has made 30 competitive appearances for Sevilla this season. He conceded 53 goals and kept six clean sheets.
Bono, whose full name is Yassine Bounou, joined Atlético Madrid in 2012 from Wydad AC. There he could not assert himself and hired after a loan to Real Zaragoza in 2016 at FC Girona.
In 2019, Sevilla initially took him on loan and signed the goalkeeper a year later for a fee of four million euros. Bono’s contract at LaLiga-13. runs until 2025.
