According to media reports, Yann Sommer's move to FC Bayern should be perfect after a long poker game. As "Bild", Sky and "Blick" reported, the German record champions from Munich and Borussia Mönchengladbach have agreed on a transfer of the 34-year-old.
All that's left is Sommer's medical check-up. As a replacement for Manuel Neuer, who was injured for a long time, the Swiss national goalkeeper is to sign a contract with Munich until June 30, 2025. Official notifications were initially not available.
The contract of the Swiss World Cup goalkeeper in Gladbach was dated until June 30 of this year. According to reports, Borussia is raking in a lavish transfer fee for the summer, about which there was no official information. Most recently, there was speculation about an offer of eight million euros plus one and a half million euros in possible bonus payments. Borussia invests this money immediately in replacement. Sommer's Swiss compatriot Jonas Omlin is said to come from HSC Montpellier.
After goalkeeper Neuer broke his lower leg, the goalkeeper shortage in Munich was great. Only with Sven Ulreich (34) and Johannes Schenk (20) did Bayern not want to start the rest of the Bundesliga. The league leaders from Munich start on Friday with an away game at RB Leipzig. The Gladbachers meet Bayer Leverkusen on Sunday.
