Bayern Munich have been actively working on incomings and departures over the past few days. They have largely focussed on outfield positions since the goalkeeping department is settled for next season. Bayern have also made a decision regarding the immediate future of Daniel Peretz.

According to Kicker and Sky Sports in Germany, Bayern have decided to keep Peretz in the squad for next season. The Bavarian club wants Peretz to compete with Sven Ulreich for the number two spot. Considering the age of two senior goalkeepers and past injury problems, Bayern insisted on keeping Peretz in the squad.

Peretz joined Bayern last summer to replace Yann Sommer. He made two appearances for Die Roten in his debut season. The 23-year-old goalkeeper was linked with a loan move away from Bayern in January, but he decided to stay in Munich until the end of the season.

Bayern had received an inquiry from Anderlecht for Peretz at the end of last season. His loan move looked certain since playing consistently will aid his development. However, Bayern have changed their mind and want to persist with Peretz for next season instead of looking for a replacement in the transfer market.

The record Bundesliga Champions have consolidated the goalkeeping department by extending the contracts of Manuel Neuer, Ulreich, and Alexander Nubel. Ulreich and Neuer have signed one-year contract extensions. Die Roten expect them to retire or leave the club at the end of next season.

Meanwhile, Nubel signed a contract until 2029 after enjoying a productive loan spell at VfB Stuttgart. He will spend the next two seasons on loan at Stuttgart, but Bayern have the option of recalling him next summer. They consider Nubel as a leading contender to succeed Neuer.

In an ideal scenario, Peretz plays domestic cup games next season. He is highly regarded at the club. Ulreich is expected to retire from football next summer, so giving minutes to Peretz will be more productive for Die Roten. Getting adequate playing time will help him to take the next step in his development. Neuer’s workload will need management next season since he is part of the German squad. The 38-year-old shot-stopper is expected to retire from international football after the Euros.

Bayern would like Peretz and Nubel to compete for the number one spot from the 2025/26 campaign. Unless there is a serious injury to any one of these two goalkeepers, Bayern are not expected to splash cash on a shot-stopper in the coming transfer windows.
