It has been reported that not a single player at Manchester City is keen on Bayern Munich target Kyle Walker leaving the club.

This comes from journalist Florian Plettenburg, as it was claimed on Thursday that the England international has decided to stay at City.

The Manchester City players would likely be buzzing about this news, considering they unanimously hoped for Bayern Munich-linked defendr Kyle Walker to stay.

Branded as ‘irreplaceable’ by Pep Guardiola himself, the treble-winner looked set to join the Bavarian giants, putting an end to his spell at the Etihad Stadium after six years.

In fact, the Catalan boss, who lauded Walker also said back in late July that he was ‘pretty sure’ that the Bundesliga champions would seal the deal.

However, it has been revealed that Pep Guardiola, alongside every Manchester City player was keen on Kyle Walker rejecting a move to Bayern in favour of continuing his legendary spell at his current employers.

Now, it seems like they may get their wish granted to them ahead of the upcoming season.

Proof of how influential Kyle Walker is in the dressing room

Considering Bayern target Kyle Walker seems like he is in contention to replace former Manchester City captain Ilkay Gundogan as his side’s brand-new skipper, it is no surprise to see why he is as valued as he is internally.

Since joining the Sky Blues in 2017, the former Tottenham Hotspur right-back has not just completed club football but been a mainstay in one of the greatest teams of all time while he’s been at it.

Even last season, during which Walker was on the periphery of things at the Etihad Stadium, his remarkable display to keep Vinicius Jr. quiet for most of the two legs against Real Madrid in the Champions League proved why he remains invaluable on the pitch as well to this day.

A leader on and off the pitch who continues to operate at the highest level will be held in high regard at any club and if that does not sum up Kyle Walker, what does?
