The last few weeks have seen Bayern Munich step up their efforts in the long-term squad-building process. The Bavarian club reached an agreement with Mathys Tel for a new contract, while talks have taken place with Alphonso Davies. Bayern have found a breakthrough in contract negotiations with another senior player on Monday.

According to Sky Sports in Germany and Bild, Bayern have reached a verbal agreement with Alexander Nubel for a contract until 2030. The German goalkeeper was set to hold talks with the club hierarchy in April after enjoying a productive loan spell at VfB Stuttgart. Die Roten has managed to convince Nubel that his long-term future remains in Bavaria.

Sky Sports is also reporting that Nubel will be on loan at Stuttgart for next season. With Stuttgart close to clinching Champions League qualification for next season, it is a wise move from Bayern to extend Nubel’s loan deal. Stuttgart are also eager to extend Nubel’s stay at least for one more season.

Nubel was initially not keen on extending the contract at Bayern. He wanted assurances over getting chances to become the first-choice goalkeeper in the squad. Die Roten always considered Nubel the ideal candidate to succeed Neuer. It does look like Nubel has got assurances from Bayern about becoming the number one when he returns from Stuttgart in 2025.

Neuer will be 39 when his contract at Bayern expires in 2025. It will be an ideal time for Bayern to give Nubel a run in the team. It remains to be seen if Neuer will hang his boots at the end of next season or become the number two goalkeeper in the squad. In an ideal scenario, Neuer stays in Munich when Nubel is getting accustomed to becoming the first-choice goalkeeper of Bayern.

Bayern also rate Daniel Peretz highly. The 23-year-old goalkeeper arrived in Munich from Maccabi Tel Aviv last summer to replace Yann Sommer. Peretz has played only one game this season. He is likely to go out on loan in the summer to get consistent playing time. 

The goalkeeping department looks settled for Bayern in the long run after the contract renewal of Nubel. If everything goes as per plan, Nubel and Peretz can be goalkeepers at Bayern for at least a decade.


After agreeing on a new deal with Nubel, Max Eberl and Christoph Freund will look to sort out a deal for a new coach by the end of April. They are also expected to hold contract talks with Joshua Kimmich and Leroy Sane at the end of the season.
