Update — July 4th, 11:55PM EDT: Talks expected between Bayern and Mamardashvili

Fabrizio Romano is reporting that there is mutual interest from Bayern Munich and Giorgi Mamardashvili and that talks will open “in the next days”:

Update — July 4th, 12:55PM EDT: Mamardashvili has been in the works for quite some time

According to Sport Bild’s Christian Falk, Bayern Munich’s interest in Giorgi Mamardashvili has been simmering for a while now:

Bayern Munich might be assembling a goalkeeping Voltron.

With Manuel Neuer, Yann Sommer, Sven Ulreich, Alexander Nübel, and Johannes Schenk currently rostered, it would seem that Bayern Munich would be seeking to get rid of some bodies in the goalkeeper room instead of add some, right?

However, you might consider that the team might soon have two goalkeeper coaches, so maybe this is just the new normal. Either way, the Bavarians have been linked to Valencia goalkeeper Giorgi Mamardashvili, who is 6’6” (1.98m) and just 22-years-old.

The source of this information is not exactly one to be trifled with either — it’s Fabrizio Romano:

EXCL: Giorgi Mamardashvili is now on FC Bayern list. One more club keen on Georgian goalkeeper after English and Italian clubs interest #Bayern @LashKokiashvili

Bayern busy with different priorities but Mamardashvili is 100% in the list.

Personal terms won’t be an issue.

We can assume that three of the aforementioned goalkeepers will hit the road in the coming weeks with Sommer and Nübel likely to be sold and Schenk a possibility for a loan.

Sky Sport journalist Florian Plettenberg also issued his own information via Twitter:

As for Mamardashvili, he will have to be patient if he moves to Bavaria. At this point, we do not know if Neuer can fully get back to where he was before his injury — and how long he might be able to stay at a top level if he does make that full recovery.

It could be...years.

You might be asking...”how serious is this?”

Well, this — affiliated account says the goalkeeper is in Munich:

Is that source legitimate? The term “apparently” is the best we can offer up at this point:
