It is clear that Manuel Neuer is still Bayern Munich’s #1 goalkeeper and the plan is to keep him there for quite some time. However, with no certain backup in Bayern Munich’s future, the club is looking for other options. One goalkeeper on Bayern’s radar is Stefan Ortega who could be Bayern’s number two goalkeeper next season.
Bayern are eyeing Stefan Ortega Moreno as new number 2 goalkeeper for next season. Ortega's contract expires in the summer - Bielefeld are offering him a new 4-year deal. The 29-year old will make a decision between Bayern and Arminia [@SPORTBILD] pic.twitter.com/Zt9HuZtLNH— Bayern & Germany (@iMiaSanMia) March 1, 2022
The Arminia Bielefeld goalkeeper’s contract expires in the summer, and Bielefeld are reportedly offering him a new four-year deal [Sport Bild]. If Arminia and Ortega can’t come to an agreement the 29-year-old will have the option to come to Munich. It all depends on what Ortega wants for himself and where he sees the fit.
There are certainly no doubts about his quality, though. The German goalkeeper has been outstanding in two straight seasons in the Bundesliga for Arminia and have been the largest reason for their limited success. With a great team around him, Ortega could be a top goalkeeper in the Bundesliga. Would Ortega want to accept a backup role when he could start for other strong clubs? We will find out.
