Manchester City have Bayern Munich’s Serge Gnabry ‘on their books’ as his future at the Allianz Arena remains in the air.

That’s according to SportBILD, who cover the German’s potential return to the Premier League today.

Reports in England have linked Gnabry with a return to England this week, with Chelsea named as a suitor, but SportBILD say there is ‘no truth’ in those rumours.

Nevertheless, the player’s future ‘remains uncertain’ and his current contract is set to expire in 2023 and talks about an extension are ‘on ice’.

Gnabry has already refused a contract offer worth €19m per year, and those in charge at Bayern see this as a simple rejection.

That means Bayern may be forced into a sale this summer rather than face the prospect of losing Gnabry on a free transfer next year, as he would be allowed to talk to clubs about a move from January onwards.

A transfer to another top club is therefore possible, and Manchester City are one of those in Europe who have Gnabry ‘on their books’.

Pep Guardiola is somewhat overhauling Manchester City’s forward line this summer, with Gabriel Jesus shipped out to Arsenal, Raheem Sterling on his way to Chelsea and Julian Alvarez and Erling Haaland brought in.

Riyad Mahrez is currently the only right-winger in the squad, though, so perhaps they are looking at Gnabry to add competition in that position.

For the moment, we’ll take it with a pinch of salt, but it could be one to keep an eye on if Gnabry’s contract negotiations continue to go nowhere and Manchester City’s interest keeps popping up.
