MANCHESTER CITY star Kyle Walker could make a dramatic U-turn amid speculation linking him with a move to Bayern Munich.
Walker was reportedly set to join Bayern after a sensational treble season in which he won the Premier League, FA Cup and Champions League with City.
According to transfer expert Fabrizio RomanoHowever, the right-back is in talks with the Citizens about a possible contract extension.
The Bundesliga champions still want to sign the England international but City manager Pep Guardiola wants to stick with him.
Romano tweeted: “Man City and Kyle Walker in talks over contract extension.”
“Sources believe this is still a possibility despite Bayern’s interest.”
“Bayern want Walker but City are still in talks about Kyle’s whereabouts.”
Walker’s contract expires in 2024, meaning City could lose him on a free transfer next year if he stays without signing a new deal.
