Bayern Munich goalkeeper Yann Sommer is set to sign a three-year contract with Inter Milan rather than a two-year deal.

This according to German broadcaster Sky Sport Deutschland, via FCInterNews, who also report that the 34-year-old is being signed specifically at the request of Nerazzurri coach Simone Inzaghi.

Today should be the day for Inter to finally wrap up the signing of Sommer from Bayern.

It has always looked like the 34-year-old would join Inter or sooner or later. At this point, the talks have been ongoing for over a month.

But it is only in the past few days that Sommer’s club Bayern have given the go-ahead. The Germans have held on to the ex-Borussia Monchengladbach man whilst they have searched for a replacement.

But today will be the day.

Reportedly, the Swiss will undergo his medicals and then sign his new Nerazzurri contract today. He could even already be in training with his new teammates as early as this afternoon.

Yann Sommer Will Sign Three-Year Contract With Inter Milan

Regarding the specifics of Sommer’s contract, Sky Deutschland reveal that it will be a three-year deal.

Reports to date have not necessarily made clear what the duration of Sommer’s deal would be. There have been suggestions of a two-year contract, possibly containing the option of an additional season.

According to Sky Deutschland, though, it will be a three-year deal until the end of June 2026.

The German broadcaster also report that Inter coach Simone Inzaghi in particular pushed for Sommer.

The coach is having to rebuild the team that he brought to the Champions League final last season without a key figure in the form of Andre Onana.

And evidently Inzaghi is keen to call on the experience and reliability of Sommer in doing so.

Whilst Inter considered plenty of potential option, Sommer was always Inzaghi’s pick.
