It is common knowledge that Bayern Munich are on the lookout for a goalkeeper to accompany Manuel Neuer and Sven Ulreich in the new season. So far, the Bavarians have Yassine Bounou from Sevilla and Giorgi Mamardashvili from Valencia on tap and it looks like the former has done a Kyle Walker and said yes to Bayern:

Yassine Bounou is open to the idea of joining Bayern this summer. The Moroccan goalkeeper would have no problem being #2 behind Manuel Neuer.

What could entice the Rekordmeister is that the Canadian-born Moroccan has absolutely no objections to being Neuer’s understudy. However, age counts against Bono (as he is called) because he’ll be 32 this year; at some point, he’ll need to be replaced.

Bayern’s current Neuer replacement, former Gladbach ‘keeper Yann Sommer, is in talks with Inter Milan as a transfer beckons.
