Kyle Walker has reached a verbal agreement with Bayern Munich ahead of a potential move to the club from Manchester City.
Bayern are interested in a deal to sign the England right-back and have been in negotiations with Walker’s representatives.
Sky Germany are now reporting that Walker has reached a ‘verbal agreement’ to sign for the Bundesliga champions on a two-year deal, with the option of a further season.
Bayern will now look to agree a fee with Manchester City for Walker, who is open to a new challenge after six seasons at the Etihad.
The 33-year-old has won five Premier League titles with the club and made 39 appearances in all competitions as Pep Guardiola’s side won a historic treble in 2022/23.
However, Walker’s role reduced last season following Guardiola’s change in defensive shape and the full-back has now agreed to leave the Premier League champions for Germany.
Bayern’s interest continues an active summer for the German giants, who have already confirmed the free transfer additions of Konrad Laimer and Raphaël Guerreiro.
Thomas Tuchel’s side are also close to finalising the signing of Napoli centre-back Kim Min-jae and retain interest in signing Harry Kane from Tottenham.
