as the top target. Neuer suffered a broken leg during a skiing accident.

Ahead of Bayern's return to Bundesliga next Friday,

Matthijs de Ligt

backs Bayern's chase for a new goalkeeper. Asked about Sommer’s situation, the Dutchman said:

"It's difficult for me to say. Manuel is now out for half a year, and of course that's not good for the club.

"But it's not my job to say which goalkeeper we should buy. It would be nice to have a new goalkeeper on the pitch, but I can't influence that."

Bayern signed the Netherlands international

Daley Blind

on a free transfer from Ajax last week, with De Ligt delighted to play alongside his compatriot. He added: "

He's a very good player. With his experience, he can have very good games for us and help us."
