Ajax announces month-long break for Bayern candidate Rulli

Two and a half weeks before the end of the summer transfer phase, the goalkeeper position is still a construction site not only for the German but also for the Dutch record champions – and both are linked.

Because Yann Sommer has said goodbye to Inter Milan and there is still speculation about Manuel Neuer’s comeback date, FC Bayern definitely want to sign another goalkeeper. Sven Ulreich is currently the only established keeper in coach Thomas Tuchel’s squad.

With Kepa from Chelsea, a hot FCB candidate has preferred to join Real Madrid, who were looking for a replacement for regular keeper Thibaut Courtois (torn cruciate ligament). And there is no longer a second solution either: Geronimo Rulli from Ajax Amsterdam. There were already indications at the weekend that the reigning world champion had suffered a serious injury to his right shoulder in the Eredivisie opener against Heracles Almelo (4-1). It’s official since Monday afternoon: According to the club, the 31-year-old Argentinian has to undergo surgery and will be out “at least” until the winter break.

Who gets Rulli’s place in Amsterdam?

While those responsible for Bayern are already looking elsewhere, Ajax will also consider adding more between the posts. In addition to Rulli, who came from FC Villarreal in January, there are three other keepers in the squad. But 39-year-old Remko Pasveer is also unavailable due to a broken metacarpus, while the other two are inexperienced: Jay Gorter (23), who has returned from a loan at Aberdeen FC, and Diant Ramaj (21), who is in Eintracht Frankfurt was committed for eight million euros and has even less playing experience at professional level.

Against Almelo, coach Maurice Steijn had brought on Gorter after Rulli’s injury, but he was actually supposed to leave the club. is he staying now Is a new one coming? Can Ramaj hope for missions? Steijn and sports director Sven Mislintat have had more work to do with Rulli’s bad luck – just like their colleagues in Munich.
