Bayern signs Yann Sommer from Gladbach as Neuer replacement

MUNICH (AP) — Bayern Munich has signed Switzerland goalkeeper Yann Sommer from Bundesliga rival Borussia Mönchengladbach to make up for the injured Manuel Neuer’s absence. The 34-year-old Sommer has signed through June 2025. Bayern was left scrambling for cover after Neuer broke his leg in a skiing accident last month. Bayern coach Julian Nagelsmann said last week he wanted a new goalkeeper before the Bundesliga resumes on Friday. Bayern is reportedly paying 8 million euros for Gladbach to let its No. 1 goalkeeper leave in the middle of the season.
