AS Monaco would like to retain goalkeeper Alexander Nübel from FC Bayern in the long term. This is reported by the French sports newspaper L’Equipe. Accordingly, the club from the principality is striving to work with the 25-year-old goalkeeper even after Nübel’s loan expires next summer.
Nübel is currently completing his second season on loan in Monaco. His return to Munich is actually planned for the next season. He is under contract there until 2025. However, Nübel would meet top dog Manuel Neuer again on Säbener Straße. The Bayern captain is tied to the record champions until 2024.
It is difficult to imagine that Nübel is aiming for a return. Finally, a few weeks ago, he said: “I think if Manu is still there, it doesn’t make sense for me to come back.”
Bayern’s sports director Hasan Salihamidzic emphasized again a few weeks ago that the Reds wanted to rely on Nübel. He said the sports picture: “FC Bayern is making long-term plans with Alexander Nübel because we believe in his quality and want to position ourselves as a goalkeeper in the future.”
Salihamidzic can “imagine” an extension with Nübel
Nübel “played a very strong season” in Monaco, Salihamidzic continued. He even brought up an early extension of his working paper: “We can very well imagine extending his contract. We will coordinate all steps with Alex and his advisor in close cooperation and always look for the best solution for FC Bayern and Alex and find.”
Nübel moved to Munich from FC Schalke on a free transfer in 2020. There, however, the former junior national goalkeeper was only able to play the role of noble reservist. After a meager four appearances in his first year, he went to Monaco, where Nübel became a top performer after a tough start.
