This scenario was not very likely anyway, now it is finally off the table. Alexander Nübel will continue his loan at AS Monaco and will not return to Bayern. The goalkeeper position remains vacant after Manuel Neuer’s injury.

Alexander Nübel will not continue to return to Bayern Munich. “The move is off the table. Alexander will play in Monaco in the second half of the season,” said Nübel consultant Stefan Backs on “Sky”.

Nübel is still on loan to the principality until the end of the season. Bayern were considering a return, as regular keeper Manuel Neuer (36) will be out at least until the end of the season with a broken leg. But an agreement with Monaco on a loan break for a fee did not come about.

In any case, Bayern want to get a new goalkeeper. Gladbach goalkeeper Yann Sommer is still the top candidate. But the negotiations with Borussia are proving to be very tough. When it comes to the transfer fee, the two parties are still at odds.
