Borussia Mönchengladbach goalkeeper Yann Sommer has just over six months left on his deal and is attracting interest from both Manchester United and Bayern Munich.

The Bavarian club joined the battle for the 34-year-old after Manuel Neuer picked up a serious injury earlier this month. The latter has been ruled out for the rest of this season.

According to Bild, Bayern’s idea is to take Sommer in January and offer him a deal until the end of this season. This would let him ‘fulfil his dream’ of England and Manchester United in the summer.

The goalkeeper has already had contact with both Erik ten Hag’s side and Bayern.

A potential deal in January could be made difficult by Mönchengladbach, who don’t intend to part ways with him. At the same time, they have a ‘pain threshold’ of at least €5m and a bid in this region could see them ponder Sommer’s sale.

Due to their difficult financial situation, Bild explain Gladbach can hardly refuse a multi-million offer, especially since the player’s contract expires in 2023.

If Bayern end up signing Sommer on a short-term deal, then Manchester United can sign him for free next summer. Should Ten Hag’s side decide to move in for him in January, they could take get him for an affordable price of €5m.
