The Englishman has recently became the captain of City after signing a new two-year deal at Etihad. Though, it has just been public that how close he was returning to his boyhood club Sheffield United. The reports from both German and England media suggested that Walker was on the list of Thomas Tuchel in the summer. It seemed that the stars were aligning for him to leave Manchester City after a historic season.
However, Walker remains at City in the end and committed to Pep and Etihad Stadium. However, Bayern was not the only possibility for the right-back. According to a report from TEAMtalk, Walker was ‘more than willing’ to leave City and join his boyhood club Sheffield United. Kyle made two senior appearances for Sheffield United in the late 2000s.
