At BVB on the list
Is there an “unpleasant” solution for Nübel?

Alexander Nübel will probably leave FC Bayern in the summer, at least on loan. That’s the goalkeeper’s plan, and FC Bayern can also make friends with the idea. Apparently there are already several interested parties. And suddenly there is a very spectacular solution in the room.

According to “Sport1”, Borussia Dortmund is also looking for a new goalkeeper with a problem with rivals FC Bayern Munich: The name Alexander Nübel is also on the list of possible candidates. BVB has a good relationship with Stefan Backs, advisor to Munich number two, whose agency is based in Dortmund. He maintains good relationships with sports director Michael Zorc. BVB has been following the goalkeeper’s development closely for a long time. There was already interest when it was clear that Nübel would leave FC Schalke 04 in the direction of Munich.

According to the report, however, BVB has not yet become really concrete. Nübel came to Bayern last summer from FC Schalke 04 on a free transfer, where he signed a contract until 2025. Since the goalkeeper has only been able to book three missions so far, he is looking for a change. “Alexander Nübel remains our number 2,” said Bayern board member Oliver Kahn. “We are totally convinced of this goalkeeper.” There is therefore “only” one loan shop in the room to collect match practice.

Backs had recently emphasized in the Sport1 podcast “Meine Bayern-Woche”: “It was clear to us that Alexander could play this role for one year that he is playing now. Even if, in my opinion, four or five games are not enough for him But there can’t be a second year like this, because the subject of match practice is important to him. ” Basically, according to Backs, his client and Bayern have “the same goal: He should be number one in the medium term. The way to get there is the crux. Alex and I are of the opinion that practice will be even more important after this year. Because this one The year did not go the way everyone involved wanted. Since we all have the same goal, we will find a solution that does Alexander justice “. Is the solution Dortmund?

In the meantime, Marwin Hitz is in the Dortmund goal, who fought for a regular place during the season and recently extended his contract until 2023. Roman Bürki, also bound until 2023, has only sat on the bench since then. The former BVB goalkeeper Jens Lehmann had advised Nübel against a possible move to Dortmund at the beginning of March: “Firstly, Marwin Hitz shows good performances,” Lehmann told the “Bild” newspaper. “And secondly, I can say from my own experience: There are more pleasant things for an ex-Schalke player than switching to BVB.”

Desired candidate too expensive?

Dortmund’s preferred candidate is “Sport1”, according to Péter Gulácsi from RB Leipzig. Due to a release clause of allegedly around twelve million euros, the Hungarian should be able to be bought out of his contract, which is valid until 2023, from the table runner-up. A moderate transfer fee for one of the best goalkeepers in the Bundesliga.

Rather, the 30-year-old’s salary expectations could become a problem. According to Sport1, Gulácsi is making a little more than four million euros a year in Leipzig. He allegedly wants to at least double the salary through a change. BVB faces competition from Inter Milan. The Italians should be ready to pay ten million euros a year to the goalkeeper.

Keeper from abroad not an option?

Nübel and Gulácsi, however, are not the only goalkeepers on BVB’s supposed wish list. The black and yellow also have Stuttgart’s Gregor Kobel (contract until 2024) in view, for whom between twelve and 15 million euros are said to be due. Koen Casteels from VfL Wolfsburg, which is also contractually bound until 2024 and is said to have attracted Borussia’s interest, could be similarly expensive.

Meanwhile, according to “Sport1”, a number of other goalkeepers who have been traded at Borussia Dortmund in the past few weeks are not an option. These include Odysseas Vlachodimos from SL Benfica, Mike Maignan from OSC Lille, Thomas Strakosha from Lazio Rome, Bartlomiej Dragowski from Fiorentina, Dean Henderson from Manchester United and André Onana from Ajax Amsterdam.
