The experienced defender could leave Man City ahead of the next season.

Pep Guardiola has confirmed Manchester City could sell Kyle Walker this summer.

Walker has emerged as a transfer target for Bayern Munich this summer as the Bavarians prepare for Benjamin Pavard’s potential exit.

According to the Athletic, Walker has reached an agreement to join the Bundesliga champions on a summer move. The Citizens reportedly expect to receive around £15m (€17.5m) for the experienced right-back.

In a press conference on Sunday, Guardiola was asked about Walker‘s possible departure.

“Honestly, I didn’t think there is the movement. I think many things will happen,” the Spaniard replied“I cannot answer because I don’t know. I want the best for my players and of course the club.

“I spoke with Kyle and everything is right – we will see what happens. I cannot tell you because he is still thinking about that.”

Fabrizio Romano has claimed that Man City are planning to enter negotiations to sign Pavard from Bayern Munich as Walker’s replacement. The idea of a swap deal might appeal to both clubs while both players are keen to switch sides ahead of the next campaign.

Bayern will meet City in a friendly match in Tokyo next week.
