Walker is the player Thomas Tuchel wants to take over the right-back role at the Bundesliga giants and the former Chelsea boss is getting closer to having his man in his squad for the upcoming campaign.
Even though the 33-year-old’s importance in Pep Guardiola’s side has diminished over the past season, his departure will be a blow to City as the defender has been a key star in several matches. The Champions League winners will be hoping to get a fair fee for the right-back as they can then set about replacing him in their squad.
