Manchester City’s Kyle Walker (33) has been discussed internally at Bayern Munich and the Bundesliga champions are monitoring the Englishman’s situation, as reported exclusively by Florian Plettenberg.
Entering the final year of his contract, Walker can leave on a free transfer in 2024 and this summer offers Manchester City a final opportunity to receive a fee for the player, unless he signs a contract extension.
As of now, no contact has been made between Bayern Munich and the player’s management, but this could change with the Rekordmeister showing an interest.
Benjamin Pavard’s future will also likely play a role in any potential deal. The Frenchman won’t extend his contract beyond 2024 which means that Pavard, who has played predominantly at right-back this season, would need to be sold this summer otherwise they risk losing the defender on a free transfer.
This also comes after Bayern Munich decided against signing on-loan defender João Cancelo on a permanent basis, leaving Noussair Mazraoui and Josip Stanišić as Thomas Tuchel’s options at right-back.
Sport1’s Kerry Hau and Patrick Berger have both confirmed Bayern’s interest in Walker.
