Things are moving very quickly during this transfer window. Bayern Munich were forced to review their plans after the Spaniard signed with Real Madrid (on loan) to compensate for Thibaut Courtois’ long absence after Kepa Arrizabalaga (Chelsea) was targeted as a priority . Bavarian leaders have their eyes on a new name and are still eyeing the English market.
14 games in treble season
They are now targeting Ederson’s student Stefan Ortega (30) as a serious lead at Manchester City, according to Sky Sports Germany. There have already been approaches for the German goalkeeper, who arrived in England on a free last summer at the end of his contract with Bielefeld. And he finished his run with the Champions League-Premier League-FA Cup treble by playing 14 games (including two in the Champions League and the entire English Cup campaign) during this historic season.
Ortega was still a starter in the Community Shield and lost to Arsenal (1–1, 4 tab 1) on 6 August, leaving Ederson on the bench. The Sky Blues are satisfied with his services and are also looking to extend his contract till 2025. The choice is largely due to the former Munich 1860 player, who could be promoted to number 1 at Bayern, having already approached him last January. Signed by Yann Sommer. Thus he could be loaned to Bavaria for the season.
