Latest Bayern Munich Transfer News: Following his departure from Manchester United, De Gea may be in for a spell with the German Champions
SPORT claims that Bayern Munich is looking into recruiting former Manchester United goalie David de Gea, who is currently a free agent after leaving the club after 12 years. The outstanding goalkeeper from Spain has drawn interest from a number of teams, and Bayern is up against Saudi Arabian clubs in their pursuit of him.
Al-Nassr is one of the teams apparently interested in reuniting David de Gea with his former Manchester United colleague, Cristiano Ronaldo, in the Middle East. With this change, the Portuguese superstar and the Spanish goalie may once again create a formidable team.
Bayern Munich, nevertheless, seems to be in the lead in the competition to hire De Gea. The Bundesliga champions are considering him as a potential replacement for Agustin Rossi, the goalkeeper they previously had on loan. However, they are being patient and waiting for information regarding Yann Sommer’s long-term stay at the Allianz Arena.
The transfer market has been affected by David de Gea’s departure from Manchester United. The Premier League club has signed Andre Onana to replace De Gea, with the Cameroonian goalkeeper emerging as their top target. Having already collaborated with the Manchester United manager at Ajax, Onana jumped at the chance to join him at Old Trafford.
In the middle of this transfer whirlwind, Inter Milan is also looking for a goalkeeper to take Andre Onana’s spot. Their shortlist includes Sommer, illustrating how sought-after he is as a custodian in the European market.
The future of Bayern Munich’s dependable goalkeeper, Manuel Neuer, who had a devastating injury last season but is now fully recovered, is doubtful. It is anticipated that Neuer will recover his role as Bayern’s starting goalkeeper in the next campaign.
In the event that Bayern Munich decides to pursue De Gea this summer, manager Thomas Tuchel will have a difficult choice to make. He will need to carefully examine the team’s goalkeeping position, taking into account De Gea’s prospective arrival as well as Sommer and Neuer’s inclusion in the lineup.
