News Update


Kyle Walker, a Manchester City defender, has stated that he was ‘near’ to joining Bayern Munich this summer.

Last season, the 33-year-old England full-back helped City become only the second English team to win the Triple Crown.

However, his future at Etihad Stadium was called into question during pre-season due to considerable interest from German giants.

“Decisions can be made, and things can turn,” Walker explained.

“It was close, but anything can happen in football.” It wasn’t supposed to be.

“Would I have appreciated the experience?” Of course I would, but this is a fantastic club, and you cannot undervalue what they have accomplished in the last six or seven years.”

Walker fell out of favor with manager Pep Guardiola in the spring, and despite regaining his spot in the club, he was left out of the starting lineup for the Champions League final in June.

With his contract at City set to expire in 2024, Bayern offered him an enticing incentive to go before City later offered him a two-year extension to stay.

“Why should I walk away if I’m going to get the right amount of game time?” “That’s all I’m looking for,” Walker continued.

“It was all about who could give me the most years.” It’s not like I’m going to a worse club because Bayern Munich is a great club, and given what Harry [Kane] is doing and will do there, it’s not a step down.

“I always wanted to play for Manchester City in the back of my mind, but I had to do what was best for me and my future.” It was simply a matter of which club provided me the years in my contract to play at the highest level.”
