Bayern Munich are on the hunt for a goalkeeper after Manuel Neuer broke his leg while skiing, and the closest to being among the goals for the German champions is the phenomenal Swiss goalkeeper Jan Sommer.

Manuel Neuer broke his leg in a bizarre way while skiing and this season is over for him, and Bayern started looking for a new goalkeeper who will be the first choice until the end of the season.

The Bavarian giants wanted to bring back Alexander Nubel who is on loan at Monaco. However, this goalkeeper does not want to return and be the second choice after the return of Neuer in the new season, so it is certain that he will not return as long as Neuer wears the jersey of the team from Munich.

That’s why Bayern’s management led by Oliver Kahn and Hasan Salihamidzic turned to other options. Dominic Livakovic, Keylor Navas and Yassin Bunu have been mentioned, but none of them will come to Munich.

The main candidate for Bayern’s unit is the 34-year-old Swiss Jan Sommer. With negotiations with Nubel not going according to plan, Sommer is coming to the fore and it is certain that he could arrive in Munich.

“Bayern contacted Jan Sommer. The Swiss is the main option if there is no agreement to return Nubel. Sommer’s contract at Gladbach expires in the summer and they can get him very cheaply. He is open to moving to Munich”, many German media write.
