Report: Bayern open up talks in pursuit of Moroccan keeper

France's "Foot Mercato" reports that FC Bayern München have opened up talks with FC Sevilla about the possibility of acquiring Moroccan goalkeeper Yassine "Bono" Bounou. 
In the continuing search for a replacement for the injured Manuel Neuer, FC Bayern München are - according to one source - considering bringing in Yassine "Bono" Bounou from FC Sevilla. France's Foot Mercato lists this link, also noting that Manchester United are engaging in "intensive discussions" with the Spanish side.

Bono would count as quite the high-profile acquisition and wouldn't come cheap either. The Moroccan World Cup hero maintains an estimated market value of €15 million in the latest transfermarkt listings. While the keeper himself could easily be persuaded to make the jump to a larger club, it's very much unclear as to whether Sevilla would allow him depart for anything less than an exorbitant amount of money.

Bayern were previously linked with other high-profile net-minders such as Dominik Livakovic and Keylor Navas. There ended up being no substance to these rumors. As of yet, no German media sources corroborate the reporting on Bono from France's Foot Mercato. The 31-year-old remains under contract with Sevilla through 2025.
