With Manuel Neuer ruled out for the rest of the campaign after fracturing his leg in a skiing accident, Bayern Munich are looking to bring in a new shot-stopper for the second half of the season.
One option for the Bavarians, though, could be to bring back Alexander Nübel, currently on loan at Monaco, even if, as L’Équipe have indicated, there is no recall clause in the German’s two-season loan deal at the Principality.
L’Équipe explain in today’s issue that talks are ongoing between the Ligue 1 side and the German champions, but have not moved forward. The break-off would notably be complicated by the fact that Monaco need to find a replacement should their starting goalkeeper – 72 appearances in a season and a half – suddenly up sticks. Nübel himself also wants guarantees over playing time, even after Neuer’s return from the treatment room, which could prove difficult for the German champions.
