Sommer has deputized this season whilst Manuel Neuer recovers from a broken leg he suffered on a skiing holiday during the Bundesliga’s winter break but Bayern boss Thomas Tuchel is planning to re-instate club captain Neuer as his number one once he returns from injury.
With the European Championships next year, it is believed Sommer wants to ensure he is playing first-team football at club level next season with Borussia Dortmund goalkeeper Gregor Kobel breathing down his neck to take his place in the Swiss international team, for whom Sommer has 82 caps for.
