Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has confirmed that he has spoken to Kyle Walker amid interest from Bayern Munich.
The England international has been linked with a move to the German champions for several weeks, and it now appears that a transfer could be on the cards.
Walker has spent the last six years with Man City, but he has seen his playing time decrease in recent seasons. He was not even included in the starting lineup for the Champions League final win over Inter Milan, and he is now reportedly keen on a move to Bayern.
The Bavarian club are looking to strengthen their right-back position, and they see Walker as the perfect fit. He is a proven performer at the highest level, and he would add a wealth of experience to Bayern’s squad.
Guardiola has said that he wants the best for Walker, but he has also admitted that he does not know what the defender’s future holds.
“I spoke with Kyle and everything is right – we will see what happens,” Guardiola said. “I cannot tell you because he is still thinking about that.”
The next few weeks will be crucial for Walker’s future. He will have the chance to play against Bayern on Wednesday, and that could be a deciding factor in his decision.
If Walker does decide to leave Man City, it would be a major blow to the club. He is one of their most experienced players, and he has been a key part of their success in recent years.
However, if he does move to Bayern, it would be a great signing for the German champions. He would add a lot of quality to their squad, and he would be a major threat to their rivals in the Bundesliga and the Champions League.
