Kyle Walker is still to decide his future amid interest from Bayern Munich and a new contract offer from Manchester City.
The 33 year-old, who has been at Manchester City since a £50 million move from Tottenham in 2017, has won 14 trophies including five Premier League titles during his six-year stay at the Etihad Stadium.
Walker has made over 250 appearances for the Sky Blues but made just 31 starts during the treble-winning campaign, the Englishman’s joint-lowest tally since joining the club.
The right-back didn’t start the UEFA Champions League Final triumph over Inter Milan in Istanbul earlier this month, as Manchester City won the competition for the first time in the club’s history.
Amid a drop off in minutes the England international has been linked with a potential exit from the Etihad Stadium, with Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich emerging as a front-runner to sign the defender.
Aston Villa have also been linked with Walker as well as the player’s boyhood club Sheffield United.
Bayern Munich have been pursuing a deal for the 33 year-old, while in an attempt to counter interest from Germany, Manchester City have reportedly offered Walker an improved contract.
Despite offers from City and Bayern Munich, Fabrizio Romano reports that Walker is yet to decide his future, as both club’s continue to push the player for a decision.
Bayern Munich are ‘pushing’ to make the England international their new right-back, as City face the potential of losing another senior member of the squad.
The Blues have already lost club captain Ilkay Gundogan, who will sign for Barcelona on a free transfer following the expiration of his contract at the end of the month.
Bernardo Silva, Riyad Mahrez and Aymeric Laporte have also been linked with possible exits.
City are though in the market for a new defender, having agreed personal terms with RB Leipzig and Croatia star Josko Gvardiol.
