Update: Leeds United ready to pay €10m for Bayern Munich goalkeeper Alexander Nübel

Will he get his move away in the end?

Alexander Nübel looks to have accepted his fate and return to Bayern Munich because no club has come forward with an offer after his loan stint at AS Monaco. The 26-year-old has not lived up to the hype as the heir to Manuel Neuer’s throne and famously refused to be recalled from his loan when Neuer went down injured.

All is not lost however, as two clubs are on the wait list and might snap up the former Schalke shot-stopper:

Alexander Nübel has two potential destinations: VfB Stuttgart or Leeds United. Decision expected this week

Stuttgart already inquired about Nübel but only want a loan deal, but things might be evolving. Nubel met with Stuttgart on Thursday to see if there is a mutual interest in how things might work:

Leeds are a new entrant in the Nübel sweepstakes but might have the edge since the 1975 European Cup finalists want a permanent deal which is something that Bayern wants. What’s interesting is that the 1975 European Cup winners were once eyeing Illan Meslier, who is currently employed by the Yorkshire club. As the above report states, Nübel has to act now if he wants out of Munich.

Bayern are deciding between Giorgi Mamardashvili from Valencia or Yassine Bounou from Sevilla as Neuer’s understudy next season.


Leeds United could pay up to 10 million euros for Alex Nubel. A good deal?
