Bayern Munich has put treble-winning Man City right-back Kyle Walker on their transfer shortlist. Walker, 33, has one year remaining on his contract at the Etihad and may leave City this summer after being benched for the Champions League final victory against Inter Milan earlier this month. Walker has one year left on his contract at the Etihad. Since the defender can play as both a right-back and center-back, Bayern is aware of this and has internally pondered hiring him. Walker is being attentively studied and is on the Bayern Munich shortlist, although the club has not yet contacted Kyle Walker about a trade. Walker, who spent six years in Manchester and cost £50 million when he transferred from Tottenham to City, has five Premier League championships, two FA Cups, four League Cups, and the Champions League to his credit.
In the event that Bernardo Silva wants to quit the team, Man City won’t get in his way. But like in the past, the player and his representation must make a transfer request and make a competitive offer to the treble winners. In addition to Barcelona, Paris Saint-Germain is reportedly interested in signing the Portugal international. Given his significant role in City’s historic triumphs in the Champions League, Premier League, and FA Cup last season, Silva would ideally stay and sign a new long-term contract. Silva is believed to have thought about leaving City last summer, but nothing came of it.
Barcelona is still interested in City captain Ilkay Gundogan on a free transfer as they want to add at least one new midfielder this summer. Gundogan’s current contract is scheduled to expire at the end of the month, thus he is in negotiations for a new one with triple winners City. The deal’s term for the 32-year-old, one year with an option for another 12, has been a sticking issue, though. Arsenal and Barca are two teams that are rumoured to be interested in signing Gundogan to a lengthier contract.
