Bayern Munich has a problem. Yann Sommer blocked
Yann Sommer will not join Bayern Munich this winter, according to Borussia Mönchengladbach sporting director Roland Virkus.
Bayern Munich are looking for a new goalkeeper following an injury suffered by Manuel Neuer during the short vacation after the World Cup. The first lead was to AS Monaco and Alexander Nübel. The Bavarians wanted to shorten his loan. The problem is that both the club competing in Ligue 1 and the goalkeeper himself, who regularly plays for the team from the Duchy, are not keen on such a move.
The German champion thus focused on acquiring Yann Sommer from Borussia Mönchengladbach. The 34-year-old Swiss is a recognized name in the Bundesliga. In addition, his contract with the current team is only valid until June 30, 2023. Florian Plettenberg reported that The goalkeeper has already reached a verbal agreement with Bayern.
It seemed that the transfer was getting closer to completion, but according to the latest reports, it is unlikely to become a fact. Borussia do not want to say goodbye to their goalkeeper in winter, as confirmed by its sporting director Roland Virkus.
– We will not sell Sommer in January. We have already informed Bayern about it – quotes the activist of “Rheinische Post”.
It is not known how the future of the Swiss will develop. Borussia had previously offered him a contract extension. Inter Milan are also interested in the 80-time representative of his country, who would like to sign him in the summer on a free transfer.
