Walker almost became ‘Kim Min-jae’s mate’ but Pep convinced him to stay at Man City…’It’s like a signing’

Man City traveling star Kyle Walker, 33, has turned down a move to Bayern Munich and will remain at the Etihad Stadium.

“Walker has decided to stay at City,” Man City journalist Sam Lee reported on Aug. 8 (ET).

“Walker had agreed to move to Munich, but changed his mind after a recent meeting with Pep Guardiola. He is now considering whether to accept a new contract from the club.”

It’s a dramatic turn of events. Walker looked set to join Munich ahead of the new season. A transfer fee had been agreed, and rumors were rife that the player wanted a new challenge. He was looking forward to playing alongside the ‘monster’ Kim Min-jae.

However, Guardiola has recently said publicly that he wants Walker and midfielder Bernardo Silva to stay. For both players, it’s understandable. 안전놀이터

Walker was spotted having a private meal with Guardiola. The conversation is believed to have been cordial.

Walker’s retention is a de facto signing. This means that City will enter the new season with the same defense that led them to the treble last season. Add to that the signing of left-back Josko Gvardiol from Leipzig to bolster the defense.
