The goalkeeping department at Bayern Munich is the only settled area of the first-team squad. The Bavarian club worked on contract extensions for Manuel Neuer and Sven Ulreich at the end of 2023. The two senior German goalkeepers will stay in Munich until the end of next season.  

With contract extensions of Neuer and Ulreich, Bayern secured the present of the goalkeeping position in the squad. The Bavarian club believes that Alexander Nubel can be the long-term successor of Neuer. Nubel has enjoyed a productive loan spell at VfB Stuttgart. Bayern sorted out a new deal for Nubel in April. He will spend the next two seasons on loan at Stuttgart.  

Along with Nubel, Bayern also have Daniel Peretz on their books. The Bavarian club signed Peretz from Maccabi Tel Aviv last summer to replace Yann Sommer. The 23-year-old goalkeeper is rated highly at Die Roten. He has played for Die Roten once this season. Peretz had ruled out leaving Munich in the winter transfer window, but Bayern want to send Peretz out on loan in the summer.  

According to Sky Sports in Germany (via iMiaSanMia), Peretz is one of the goalkeeping options for Anderlecht in the summer. The Belgian club has already held talks regarding a transfer, but there is no agreement. Apart from Anderlecht, Brondby and FC Copenhagen are also interested in Peretz. 

Bayern would like Peretz to play at the top level consistently if he goes out on loan in the summer. The 23-year-old goalkeeper may have learned a lot while training with Manuel Neuer and Sven Ulreich, but he needs to play regularly to continue his development.  

The Bavarian club would prefer Peretz to stay in the Bundesliga, getting accustomed to the league. The final decision on Peretz’s destination will come at the start of the summer transfer window, allowing him to start pre-season with the new club.  

In an ideal scenario, Neuer remains at the club beyond the end of next season but as a deputy instead of number one. Nubel gets an extended run in the team to prove he is a worthy heir to Neuer. Peretz will likely return to Bavaria when Neuer decides to hang up his boots.  

With the goalkeeping department looking settled, Bayern have work to do in defense, midfield, and attack. After losing the Bundesliga title to Bayer Leverkusen, the club chiefs are open to making tough decisions in the summer. They will complete a squad overhaul under a new coach to bring the domestic titles back to Allianz Arena.
