Nagelsmann wants a quick resolution for the Yann Sommer transfer saga

Being strongly linked with Monchengladbach goalkeeper, Sommer, since Manuel Neuer was sidelined for the remainder of the season, Nagelsmann admits he is anxious ahead of their Bundesliga return to action.


Manuel Neuer

suffered a broken leg during a skiing accident, being sidelined for the rest of the season, Bayern has been on the hunt for a new goalkeeper with

Yann Sommer

as the top target.

Earlier, Bayern CEO Oliver Kahn revealed the ongoing negotiations over a move for Yann Sommer. Ahead of their return to competitive football,

Julian Nagelsmann

is eager for the transfer saga resolve as fast as possible.


I've been a coach long enough to know it's never easy. There are always more than two parties that need to be satisfied,"

Nagelsmann said at Wednesday's pre-match press conference.

"We need a decision to happen. I'd like to change the transfer window so it doesn't affect the ongoing matches as much.

"It's normal that at some point you want to have a certain amount of peace and quiet in this position.

"Integrating a new goalkeeper is not rocket science. This usually takes about 15 minutes, it works quickly. It depends on the goalkeeper, generally the behaviour is very similar.

"It's more a matter for the people further up. I might have some things to say on that, but my business is day-to-day business, winning games.

"I assume that Manuel Neuer, a great goalkeeper, will come back in the summer. We're looking forward to a player of his quality returning."

Saying he is comfortable using

Thomas Muller

in a variety of positions, Nagelsmann added:

"Thomas had an injury where he couldn't play as much in the first part of the season. Thomas is an extremely important player for me, I'm always exchanging with him.

"He's aware that Choupo-Moting is doing very well, but he's also intelligent enough to know that he is world-class in several positions.

"It's important that all the players are in top condition and that we see that on Friday. The same goes for Thomas, he's very flexible. He likes to play in attacking midfield but can play in different areas, so he's going to be important for Bayern going forward.

"I've already decided on six positions out of 11. I won't reveal whether Choupo-Moting is among the six. I'll sleep on it for two more nights."
