FC Bayern München: Nübel für Neuer? “Macht wenig Sinn, dass ich zurückkomme”
FC Bayern will have to do without Manuel Neuer until the end of the season. Who will be his replacement in goal? Alexander Nübel comments on a possible return.
Goalkeeper Alexander Nübel, on loan to Monaco, considers an early return to Bayern as a replacement for the seriously injured Manuel Neuer to be complicated.
“Ultimately, AS Monaco made the decision, I’m under contract here. They first have to give the signal that they want to do it. I think it will be very difficult,” said Nübel of “Bild” after the 3-2 win Monaco in the French league at AJ Auxerre.
He feels comfortable in Monaco, and those responsible also know that. “I trust them, they trust me. That’s why I’m happy to be here,” Monaco’s first-choice goalkeeper Nübel continued.
Nübel keeps fingers crossed for Neuer
The goalkeeper, who was signed by FC Schalke 04 in the summer of 2020, has repeatedly emphasized that it “makes no sense” for him to return to FC Bayern if Neuer is still there. “I don’t know how serious Manuel’s injury is. But I think he will be fit again by the summer, at the latest in preparation for the next season. I’ll keep my fingers crossed for him,” said Nübel.
Nübel (26) is on loan to Monaco until the summer. FC Bayern is said to want to bring him back early as a replacement for Neuer (36) because the captain of the national team will be out until the end of the season after breaking his lower leg.
According to the “kicker”, AS Monaco should only want to negotiate with Munich when they have a suitable replacement for Nübel. As the specialist magazine reported on Thursday without stating a source, the French first division club is currently blocking “approach attempts” by the German record champions. There were initially no official statements. If the return campaign with Nübel does not work, Yann Sommer (34) from Borussia Mönchengladbach is also a potential replacement for Neuer.
“We are examining different scenarios. But of course Alexander Nübel would be an obvious solution. In the end, AS Monaco has the last word,” Bayern sports director Hasan Salihamidzic recently told “Sport Bild”. Preparations for the second part of the season begin at FC Bayern on January 3rd.
