Kyle Walker is likely to stay at Manchester City.
The British media outlet ‘Daily Mail’ reported on Tuesday (June 20) that “Kyle Walker wants to stay at Manchester City. He has rejected interest from Bayern Munich. He is currently in talks with City to extend his contract.”
Munich, looking to bolster their defense, approached Walker. So much so that Bayern coach Thomas Tuchel made a personal approach.
Walker fell down the pecking order at City last season. He also has a year left on his contract at City. The Bavarians believed that signing Walker would not be difficult.
But they were wrong. Walker wasn’t interested in a move.
The English right fullback is one of the fastest defenders in the game. He used that speed to defend against counterattacks.
At 6-foot-3, he has a solid build and can also play center back. He can play center back as well, unless you’re Man City, who have a lot of depth. 토토사이트
City decided to keep Walker. While he’s not a core player, Walker is tactically versatile. He has many uses in Pep Guardiola’s system. After winning the treble last season, they’ve decided to keep him as much as possible.
