FC Bayern, rumor: Yann Sommer favorite as new replacement?
Since a premature return of Alexander Nübel from Monaco to FC Bayern seems increasingly unlikely, the Munich team is apparently intensifying the search for alternatives.
As sky Now reported, Yann Sommer is said to have come more into focus. The 34-year-old Swiss national goalkeeper is therefore the “non-alternative preferred candidate” of the Bayern bosses. Sommer himself could also imagine a change.
Sommer’s contract in Gladbach runs until 2023, and the signs were pointing to farewell anyway, as the goalkeeper has not yet accepted an offer from Gladbach to extend the contract. Sommer came to the foals from FC Basel in 2014 for nine million euros.
Noisy picture Bayern definitely want to upgrade after Neuer’s absence by the end of the season and not go into the rest of the season alone with Sven Ulreich and 19-year-old Johannes Schenk. In addition to Sommer, the tabloid also names PSG substitute keeper Keylor Navas and Morocco’s national goalkeeper Bono (FC Sevilla) as possible candidates.
FC Bayern, News: allegations against Benjamin Pavard
After his starting eleven in the opening game against Australia (4:1), Benjamin Pavard played no role in the following games at the World Cup. The demotion to substitute player by coach Didier Deschamps was attributed to tactical negligence on the part of the Bayern defender.
Now the French journalist Romain Molina reports in a post on YouTube that Pavard is said to have caused increasing unrest within the team as the tournament progressed through selfish and uncooperative behavior. Pavard is also said to have passed on internals to the press. Pavard is said to have been increasingly isolated within the Équipe Tricolore.
With critical comments about the coaching team and colleagues, Pavard is said to have increasingly disrupted the chemistry within the team. According to Molina, Pavard also made “inappropriate comments” on the bench during the final defeat by Argentina.
Pavard had already caused a stir before the tournament started by publicly emphasizing several times that he wanted to leave Bayern after the current season. The 26-year-old’s contract runs until 2024.
