In search of an experienced number 1 following Cameroonian Andre Onana’s move to Manchester United, the Milanese club announced on Monday that Yann Sommer is the new Inter goalkeeper. “Experience, leadership and dedication, these are qualities that Sommer is prepared to use to the advantage of the black and blue jersey”, indicated Inter’s press release that formalized the player’s arrival.
The length of his contract with the Lombard club, winner of the 2023 Italian Cup, is unspecified. The transfer fee is estimated at six million euros. The 34-year-old Sommer joined Bayern Munich last January to replace Manuel Neuer, who suffered a serious right knee fracture during a ski outing in early December.
Sommer’s farewell message to Bayern fans
The Swiss goalkeeper’s contract with Bayern was due to expire in 2025 but Neuer, who has not yet featured in the German champions’ preparatory matches, will regain his starting spot. “I will never forget my experience at such a great club,” Sommer said in his farewell message to Bavarian fans on his Instagram account. The international, with 83 caps passed by FC Basel and Vaduz, spent most of his career in Germany at Borussia Mönchengladbach (2014–2023).
