A New Goalkeeper At FC Bayern
In the question of a new goalkeeper at FC Bayern, CEO Oliver Kahn also speaks up – and also talks about Sven Ulreich.
The head coach recently put it more clearly and much more offensively than Titan!
While Julian Nagelsmann found clear words in the question of a new goalkeeper for FC Bayern,
Oliver Kahn is deliberately relaxed.
“I’m very, very calm there. Sven Ulreich did a very good job, kept one or the other untenable,” said the record champions’ CEO on the sidelines of the New Year’s reception of the German Football League (DFL) in Offenbach.
The topic of Yann Sommer is still hovering over FC Bayern – but Kahn was particularly relaxed when asked.
Goalkeeper problem at FC Bayern: That’s how Kahn sees it
With Ulreich they have “an absolutely reliable man”, emphasized the “Titan” on Tuesday: “As far as this topic is concerned,
I am very relaxed. We will make the right decision there.”
Regarding a commitment from Gladbach’s summer, Bavaria’s CEO kept a low profile. The two clubs would be “in a process. I can’t say at this point what the end of this process will be,” said the 53-year-old. It is still “nothing ready for a decision”.
Bild and Kicker had previously unanimously reported that FCB had made another decisive move: Bayern offered the previously requested 8 million transfer fee plus another million as a bonus – but he had rejected Gladbach again!
But the topic remains hot because after the topic of Alexander Nübel has been dealt with, Bavaria is even more under pressure. It fits: Just a few days ago, according to SPORT1 information,
FCB did not want to pay more than five to six million – now it seems more possible.
Nagelsmann: “Have to get a goalkeeper”
Nagelsmann recently reiterated the demand he had made after the 4-4 draw in the friendly against RB Salzburg: “Everyone sees the goalkeeper situation. We have to get a goalkeeper, that’s out of the question.”
After the injury of goalkeeper Manuel Neuer, the record champions are urgently looking for a keeper for the rest of the season. Although Ulreich enjoys the trust, nonetheless, the transfer market should be refilled in the coming days.
Transfer poker around Yann Sommer is getting wilder
Meanwhile, speculation about the commitment of the Swiss national keeper Sommer is getting wilder and wilder.
According to SPORT1 information, Sommer was and is still the preferred candidate for FCB officials. They continue to try to convince Gladbach to release the player.
Sommer himself has emphatically stated that he would like to take the opportunity to move to Munich and play internationally and for titles with the German record champions.
Alexander Nübel, who was initially considered the ideal candidate, will remain on loan at AS Monaco at least until the end of the season and will not return to Bayern prematurely.
