Bayern Munich have reportedly halted the transfer of Yann Sommer to Inter as they struggle to find a replacement.

The Bavarians signed the Swiss from Borussia Monchengladbach in January to serve in Manuel Neuer’s stead during his lengthy absence.

Despite the German’s imminent return to action, the Bundesliga champions still intend to have a solid backup in the dugout.

Therefore, Bayern were hoping to sign 22-year-old North Macedonian goalkeeper Giorgi Mamardashvili from Valencia to serve as a second-fiddle for Neuer.

But according to Sky Sport DE via FcInterNews, the talks between Bayern and Valencia have now collapsed. Thus, Mamardashvili definitely won’t join the Bavarian giants.

As a result, Bayern have decided to put Sommer’s transfer to Inter on hold as they seek a solution.

While triggering the Swiss goalkeeper’s release clause would have been a good option for the Nerazzurri, the source claims that such clause does not exist, contrary to other reports.

This leaves the Italian club in a tough spot. The Beneamata are about to part ways with André Onana who will complete a transfer to Man United in the next hours.

The club also lost the services of legendary captain Samir Handanovic whose contract expired at the end of last season.

The Nerazzurri were hoping to secure the signature of Sommer ahead of the upcoming Japan pre-season tour.

So we shall see if Inter and Bayern will be able to solve this unexpected knot in the coming days. Otherwise, the Italians would have to seek alternative solutions.
