Kyle Walker informs Pep Guardiola of his desire to join Bayern Munich

Kyle Walker’s days at Manchester City are seemingly numbered as he edges closer to a move to Bayern Munich.

Journalist Florian Plettenberg claims Walker has told Man City boss Pep Guardiola that he wants to seal a move to the Allianz Arena.

The Bavarians have already agreed personal terms with Walker on a possible two-year contract with an option for another but are yet to discuss the transfer fee with the Premier League giants.

Any efforts of Man City trying to keep the England star – whose contract expires in 12 months – may end up in vain as he is pushing for a move away from the Etihad Stadium.

Walker’s potential departure could make way for Bayern defender Benjamin Pavard, who has been lined up as a top target by the Cityzens.

Pavard’s contract also expires in 2024, and he has no intention of continuing at Bayern beyond this summer as he aims to seek out a new challenge.

However, Man City are currently focused on the deal for RB Leipzig centre-back Josko Gvardiol, who is one step away from moving to the Etihad Stadium after completing part of his medical tests.

The treble winners will then try to sort out the right-back situation given that Joao Cancelo, who has returned from his loan spell at Bayern, will likely leave this summer.
