According to a report from journalist Rudy Galetti, AS Monaco is a nearing a deal for Borussia Dortmund goalkeeper Roman Burki.

While that might not seem like a move that would affect Bayern Munich, the fallout will definitely touch Säbener Straße. Monaco, which is coached by former Bayern Munich boss Niko Kovac, was considered one of the leading contenders to bring in Alexander Nübel on a loan assignment.

If the move for Burki goes through, Bayern Munich could be left looking for another loan partner to help Nübel get the game time he desperately needs — and desires:

Roman #Burki is one step away from becoming a player of the #Monaco . For the goalkeeper born in 1990, the #BorussiaDortmund accepted the offer of approx € 3 million advanced by the Monegasques. The extreme defender exits the #Dortmund after 6 seasons. #Calciomercato #Transfers

Burki, of course, is a very solid option for AS Monaco and is an extreme value if the French club is purchasing him for just €3 million.

As for Nübel, the youngster has been loosely linked to Lille, Union Berlin, and Borussia Dortmund among other clubs.
