It’s been some kind of year for Bayern Munich’s goalkeeping ranks. Ever since Manuel Neuer’s injury after the FIFA Men’s World Cup last December, it’s been non-stop churn in both the roster and coaching ranks.

Cue the transfer rumors as well. With Yann Sommer now off to Inter Milan and Neuer still ailing, Bayern have a lot of business to do very quickly in this summer’s transfer window. With that, a whole new slate of names has appeared, per Sport Bild’s Christian Falk:

Bayern discussed also the candidates Mike Maignan (28, [AC Milan]) and Diogo Costa (23, Porto) for a number-1-Solution, if the comeback of Manuel Neuer could no longer be estimated in terms of time

Those are some heavy-hitting names. Maignan, 28, has a contract expiring in 2026 for the Serie A giants. Costa, 24 in September, is an exciting young talent with a contract until 2027. Both players have €45m valuations per Transfermarkt.
