Report: Ulreich should become Bayern’s number one
According to a “Bild” report, those responsible at FC Bayern Munich want to start the new season with Sven Ulreich as number one in the goal of the record champions. A corresponding decision had been made. The search for a replacement for the still injured national goalkeeper Manuel Neuer had previously been difficult, according to “Bild” a replacement for Ulreich should first be sought.
It was only on Wednesday morning that the Sky TV station reported that Munich had intensified their efforts to get Stefan Ortega from Manchester City. Coach Thomas Tuchel is said to have personally phoned the substitute goalkeeper of Champions League winners Manchester City. However, the former Arminia Bielefeld goalkeeper only moved to Manchester last summer. His contract on the island is valid until 2025. “We want him, I’m sorry, but we want him. We don’t want to sell him or lend him. We need him here,” said city coach Pep Guardiola.
After Neuer’s postponed comeback plans and the departures of Yann Sommer, Alexander Nübel and Johannes Schenk, Bayern currently only have one experienced and fit goalkeeper in their squad in Ulreich.
