There has been speculation for several weeks about a possible replacement for the injured Manuel Neuer. However, the search turned out to be difficult. But a turning point appears to be coming at Bayern. The top floor of the German record champion does not want to get a new number one. It is told by the “image”. So far, he is satisfied with Sven Ulrich’s performance. He must now (for the time being) defend the goal of the German record champion. At least until Neuer is fit again.
This decision was taken on Wednesday. A replacement for Ulrich must be sought. TV broadcaster Sky reported on Wednesday morning that Munich have stepped up their efforts to sign Stefan Ortega from Manchester City. Coach Thomas Tuchel is said to have personally telephoned the substitute goalkeeper for Champions League winners Manchester City.
The former Arminia Bielefeld goalkeeper only moved to Manchester last summer, with his contract on the island valid until 2025. But City coach Pep Guardiola categorically rejects a potential move: “We don’t want to sell him and we don’t want to sell him either.” borrow it I’m sorry, but we want to keep him around for a long time.”
Following Neuer’s postponed return plans and the departures of Yann Sommer, Alexander Nubel and Johannes Schenk, Bayern currently only have one experienced and fit goalkeeper in their squad in Ulrich. Neuer is still not expected to return to team training. Kepa Arrizabalaga and David Raya, who were recently linked with FC Bayern, have decided to join other clubs. Ajax’s Geronimo Rulli has been out for a long time due to injury and now there are no substitutes.
