The Bavarians have spent a relatively quiet transfer window so far this January.

Bayern Munich manager Julian Nagelsmann has urged the club to look for a new goalkeeper this winter.

Manuel Neuer’s untimely injury has forced the Bavarians to search for a new goalkeeper. 

The club was eager to bring back Alexander Nubel, who is spending a loan spell at Monaco. However, negotiations between the two clubs have reportedly ended without an agreement.

As Bayern prepare to return to Bundesliga next weekend, Nagelsmann insists his side cannot continue the season with their current goalkeeping options.

“Everyone sees the goalkeeping situation,” Nagelsmann told Sport1 (via iMiaSanMia). “We have to get a goalkeeper anyway, that’s out of the question. What if Ulle tears a ligament next week, what do we do then?

“Then a very young goalkeeper, who played his first game today, would have to play in the Champions League and Bundesliga. Then everyone would say: Are you still drunk? Why don’t you get a goalkeeper?

“We have to discuss it, it has nothing to do with trust (in Ulreich). Ulle knows his role, we know what he can do – Ulle knows what he can do. 

“We already trusted him in the first half of the season when Manu was injured. I didn’t play the third goalkeeper, but him.

“Ulle also knows that we have to work on the situation. It’s our job to do what’s best for the club.”
