Since moving to Bayern Munich in 2020, Alexander Nübel has rarely seen playing time due to the presence of Manuel Neuer and the preference for Sven Ulreich. The 27-year-old has since been loaned out twice, first to AS Monaco and to VfB Stuttgart where he plays now. Nübel is shining for the Swabians and the Bavarians are happy with him:
Bayern are happy with Alexander Nübel’s performances at Stuttgart this season and with the fact that he’s finally showing what he’s capable of after years of struggling since he joined the club. Unlike during his loan spell at Monaco where there was hardly any contact with Toni Tapalović, current goalkeeping coach Michael Rechner is in regular communication with Nübel as he rates him highly. With a contract expiring in 2025, Nübel’s Bayern future remains open. But as long as Manuel Neuer is fit and still at the club, Nübel is unlikely to have a future in Munich.

Fans will still be smarting from the time Nübel elected not to return to Bayern right after Neuer was injured, but things can still change.
