Bayern Munich are said to be making headway in their pursuit of Manchester City right-back Kyle Walker.
The England international just assisted Man City in winning the treble, but his time at the club may be coming to an end.
During the 2022-23 season, Walker’s starting spot was threatened by the likes of Rico Lewis, John Stones, and Manuel Akanji.
Walker had to settle for a late replacement appearance in the Champions League final win over Inter Milan, as Stone was preferred.
Walker, who has a year left on his Man City deal, wants to play frequently ahead of Euro 2024, and he appears to be on his way out in the summer.
Bayern Munich keen on signing Walker
According to a recent report, Bayern Munich are in talks with Manchester City about a prospective transfer for the 33-year-old.
According to journalist Florian Plettenburg, talks between Bayern Munich and Manchester City have progressed.
The two teams have yet to strike an agreement, but all parties involved are optimistic that a solution can be reached.
Walker has decided to join the German champions after being persuaded by Bayern Munich manager Thomas Tuchel, who is preparing for his first full season in charge.
Bayern Munich are aiming to reinforce their right side of defence after deciding not to make Joao Cancelo’s loan move from Manchester City permanent.
There has also been talk about France international Benjamin Pavard leaving the Allianz Arena.
Sheffield United were interested in re-signing Walker, but moving to Bayern would allow the defender to remain in the Champions League.
Walker has made 254 appearances for Manchester City since arriving from Tottenham Hotspur in 2017. He has six goals and 18 assists.
Walker is currently on international duty with England, and he was an unused substitute in Friday’s 4-0 Euro 2024 qualifying triumph against Malta.
