Bayern Munich eye transfer swoop for Morocco’s World Cup sensation Bono after keeper Manuel Neuer broke leg skiing

BAYERN MUNICH are reportedly interested in Sevilla and Morocco keeper Bono following his sensational World Cup displays.

The Atlas Lions made history on Saturday when they beat Portugal to become the first African nation to reach a World Cup semi-final.

One of Morocco‘s standout performers throughout the tournament has been shot-stopper Bono.

The 31-year-old, real name Yassine Bounou, kept clean sheets in games with Croatia, Spain and Portugal, conceding just one goal against Canada on their way to the last four.

The only match he has missed in Qatar came in the 2-0 win over Belgium as he was suffering with an illness.

Bono was the hero in the last-16 against Luis Enrique’s men as he saved penalties from Carlos Soler and Sergio Busquets in the shootout.

According to AS, his incredible form on the biggest stage has attracted interest from Bayern CEO and legendary keeper Oliver Kahn.

Bono has been playing for LaLiga side Sevilla since 2019 and has a contract until 2025.

But Kahn is thought to be very keen on the Canadian-born keeper as they look to temporarily replace long-time No1 Manuel Neuer.

Neuer, 36, is out for the rest of the season after breaking his leg while skiing earlier this month.


Aston Villa are also interested in the Moroccan and could be a suitor for Bono should they choose to pursue a deal.

And if they were to beat Bayern to him, the German champions are also keen on Croatian hero Dominik Livakovic.

Livakovic, 27, who plays his club football for Dinamo Zagreb, helped his country to the semi-finals of the World Cup by saving spot kicks in TWO penalty shootout victories.
