The Bavarians have pushed hard to complete a deal but their efforts look to have been in vain with Walker set to sign a contract renewal at City according to Fabrizio Romano.

Kyle Walker set to renew deal at Man City
Walker joined the Cityzens from Tottenham in 2017 and has been an ever-present for Pep Guardiola’s men ever since. Despite his age, the England international has retained all of the pace which has made him such an effective right-back over the years and in a standout match last season kept the dangerous Vinicius Jr quiet in City’s 4-0 demolition of Real Madrid in the second leg of their Champions League semi-final tie.
