Mercato Bayern : Manchester United interested in Yann Sommer
Successor of Manuel Neuer at Bayern Munich since this winter, Yann Sommer could compete with David De Gea at Manchester United next season.
At the end of his contract with Manchester United on June 30, David De Gea is about to sign a new lease with the Manchester club. But the 32-year-old Spanish goalkeeper's salary is expected to be reduced and there are rumors in the English press that the Red Devils want to recruit a new keeper this summer to compete with him.
According to German journalist Christian Falk, Manchester United is still interested in Yann Sommer, the 34-year-old Swiss goalkeeper who joined Bayern Munich this winter for 8 million euros to replace Manuel Neuer, who has a serious knee injury.
✅ Manchester United is still interested in Yann Sommer. There's a gentlemen's agreement between Bayern and Sommer that if Manuel Neuer will be back as number one, the club would allow the Swiss goalkeeper to leave in summer— Christian Falk (@cfbayern) May 11, 2023
But as the German goalkeeper should soon make his return, Sommer could change air during the next mercato. Bayern Munich would have promised the Swiss goalkeeper to let him go this summer if Manuel Neuer becomes number one again.
