Yann Sommer from Borussia Mönchengladbach is considered the ideal solution for the vacant goalkeeper post at FC Bayern. The Munich team is said to have made a breakthrough in poker for the Gladbach keeper.
As “Sky” claims to have learned, those responsible at FC Bayern have verbally agreed with Sommer on a change in winter.
Accordingly, the Swiss only wanted to switch to the German record champions, a transfer to another club was out of the question. Sommer has also recently been linked with Manchester United and Inter Milan.
However, an agreement with Gladbach is still pending. According to the TV broadcaster, the club from the Lower Rhine only wants to let its number one go if a suitable successor has been found. Only then do you want to start concrete negotiations with FC Bayern.
According to Gladbach trainer Daniel Farke, however, the foals have no interest in selling summer in winter. “Why should we give up such a goalkeeper? There must be very, very good reasons for wanting to give up such a quality player,” the coach is quoted as saying by “Sport1”.
“We want to extend the contract with Yann. There will be talks in the near future. We have one of the best goalkeepers in Europe under contract and we play ambitiously. We need Yann Sommer for that,” Farke added and asked: “Why should we have him then want to give up? There’s no such thing as an aspiration.”
Will Sommer sign with FC Bayern until 2025?
“Sky” also confirmed a “Blick” report after Sommer was offered a contract in Munich until 2025.
It is not clear which plan FC Bayern is pursuing with a multi-year contract. It is conceivable that the record champions would choose this model in order to collect a fee for the goalkeeper in the event of a transfer next summer.
The Munich bosses may also be toying with the idea of keeping the Swiss in the back as a new alternative. After all, it is not clear if and when the German national goalkeeper will be in top form again after his serious skiing accident.
