Kyle Walker has quietly become a household name in the football fraternity. When Spurs signed him back in 2009, he was immediately sent on loan spells to Queens Park Rangers and Aston Villa respectively. He returned to White Hart Lane in 2011 and was ready to run riot – slowly turning into one of the top right-backs in European football.
Walker grew into a powerful right-back, marauding down the flank and was named the PFA Young Player of the Year in 2012. He was rewarded with a 5-year-contract, which saw him stay at the Lane until 2017. Walker made the PFA team of the year for the second time in his career and that led to his departure to Manchester City.
At City he has won five Premier League titles, four EFL Cups, two FA Cups, and a UEFA Champions League in 2023 as part of a continental treble. Right now, with only a year remaining on his contract, he looks like he’s ready for his final big move. Will it be Bayern Munich? Pep Guardiola is keen on keeping the Englishman at the Etihad – but is aware of the desire that Thomas Tuchel has for him and eager to bring him to the Bundesliga this summer.
The Manchester City defender has attracted interest from the German champions, with reports suggesting Walker has agreed terms with the club and has discussed the possibility of a move with Guardiola during the club’s pre-season tour. Despite all of that, Walker was named as captain and impressed in the team that defeated Munich in their pre-season clash in Tokyo this week. Bayern officials are expected to speak to their City counterparts about a move for Walker in Japan – time will tell if the 33-year-old will make the move.
There are a host of other clubs that have shown interest, but all signs are pointing at the Allianz Arena if Walker is to say goodbye to the Blue half of Manchester.
