Bayern Munich have secured a verbal agreement with Borussia Monchengladbach goalkeeper Yann Sommer over a move during the January transfer window.
The German giants are in the market for a shot-stopper as a result of Manuel Neuer breaking his leg skiing after the World Cup and are making moves to bring Sommer to the Allianz Arena.
According to Sky Sport’s Florian Plettenberg, the Swiss international only wants to join Bayern and will sign a contract until 2025 should the two clubs come to an agreement over a fee.
The 34-year-old is out of contract with Monchengladbach at the end of the season, therefore, this is the German club’s last chance to sell the goalkeeper.
