In winter, Yann Sommer was signed as a replacement for the injured Manuel Neuer. It has now been announced that the 34-year-old will almost certainly leave Munich after only six months. Sommer is not ready to sit down as number 2 behind Neuer on the bench at Bayern.
While Manuel Neuer is working flat out on his comeback and Thomas Tuchel can’t wait for this moment, Yann Sommer is thinking hard about his sporting future. As the “kicker” reports, this future is not in Munich. According to the magazine, it is “almost certain” that the goalkeeper will leave Bayern in the summer.
Several foreign clubs are considered for summer
According to “kicker” information, Sommer definitely wants to play as a regular keeper again in the coming season. Reason: He does not want to risk his status as number 1 in the Swiss national team for the EM 2024. With Gregor Kobel from Borussia Dortmund, he currently has a strong competitor who wants to contest his place.
Sommer was last linked with a move to Manchester United. There are other options besides the Red Devils. With FC Villarreal, FC Valencia, Leicester City and AS Monaco, four European clubs are currently looking for a new number 1, as the “kicker” reports.
One thing is clear: Thomas Tuchel is fully committed to Neuer. If the 37-year-old is physically fit, no obstacles will be put in the way of summer.
According to reports, the goalkeeper can leave the record champions if they receive a fee of eight million euros. The sum that was transferred to Borussia Mönchengladbach in January.
