Bayern Munich Transfer News: Yann Sommer and Daley Blind

The signing of Blind on a six-month contract is seen via many as a stop-gap measure, with Bayern not looking to sign a replacement for the injured Manuel Neuer anytime soon. However, the signing of Sommer is a long-term move, with the 34-year-old signing a contract until 2025. This could have implications for the status of the current no.1 Neuer, who is out with a broken leg, suffered in a skiing accident.

The Swiss keeper has a wealth of international experience and has already played in the Bundesliga for many years. Bayern CEO Oliver Kahn believes Sommer has everything required to make a contribution immediately to the club’s success. The club have also been linked with Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane as a potential replacement for Robert Lewandowski, however, no move materialized during this window.
In summary, the signing of Yann Sommer by Bayern Munich has been a win-win situation for all parties involved. Bayern have secured the services of a reliable goalkeeper, Gladbach have been able to sign a replacement for Sommer and are better off financially, and Sommer has been given the opportunity to join one of Europe’s biggest clubs. Only time will tell if this move will be a success,.
