Bayern Munich are in talks with Manchester City over the shock signing of right-back Kyle Walker this summer.
The 33-year-old speedster has been at the Cityzens since signing from Tottenham Hotspur in 2017 and has won 14 major honors during his time at The Etihad Stadium.
Bavarians set to swoop for longstanding Man City man
However, it has been reported by The Athletic’s Sam Lee that despite starting 11 out of City’s 13 Champions League matches, the England international was disappointed to be left out of Pep Guardiola’s starting eleven in the Champions League final last Saturday as City completed a historic treble.
The sky blues are also expected to part company with fellow full-back Joao Cancelo, who spent the second half of last season on loan at the Allianz Arena. With Bayern priced out for a move for the Portuguese sensation, the experienced Walker is thought to be a much more realistic and affordable option with Thomas Tuchel wanting to bring in Premier League experience with Chelsea’s Kai Havertz and West Ham’s Declan Rice also linked with moves to Bavaria this summer.
Walker is seen as a ready-made replacement for fellow right-back Benjamin Pavard, who is expected to leave Bayern this summer.
