Kicker reports that Bayern Munich have identified Keylor Navas as a possible short-term replacement for Manuel Neuer, who has been ruled out for the rest of the season due to a leg injury.

After learning of Neuer's injury, Bayern initially made contact with Alexander Nübel to look into the possibility of bringing the 26-year-old back from his loan spell at Monaco ahead of schedule.

However, with Nübel looking unlikely to leave Monaco in the middle of the season, the Bavarians have reportedly started looking for alternatives.

According to Kicker, Paris Saint-Germain's Keylor Navas is a candidate. The 35-year-old is yet to make an appearance this season and would be expendable for the French champions.

Meanwhile, Croatian media have recently linked Dominik Livakovic, who is currently playing at the World Cup, with the German champions.
