"It would be crazy for Bayern to sign him because he is one of Liverpool's best players," the goalkeeper told Sky Sports in Germany. "If Bayern Munich is able to sign him, you can only be happy for them and the Bundesliga as a whole. It would give the league another star, which would make me very happy for the Bundesliga.

Karius is now 28 years old and hasn't played in a game since February 2021, when he was on loan at Union Berlin.

"It has to do with how you feel. The club can be in Germany or somewhere else in the world. I just need to feel like the chemistry is right with those in charge, that they like me and I like them."
