Press reports in Germany revealed that Bayern Munich is working to include Bielefeld goalkeeper Stefan Ortega. Kicker magazine reported in its Monday edition that Ortega could replace Alexander Nubel as the second goalkeeper in the Bavarian team after international goalkeeper and team captain Manuel Neuer. Bayern did not comment on what the magazine reported in its report.
Noble, 24, moved to Bayern from Schalke 04 in the summer to be a starting goalkeeper for Neuer at one point, but he seemed unhappy with being on the bench last season and pushed to loan him to another team to find an opportunity to play. It is noteworthy that Ortega, 28, a former player in the 1860 Munich club, has a contract with Bielefeld that lasts until 2022, and has contributed a large share to the survival of his club in the German League competition. According to the Kicker report, Bayern Munich opened channels of communication with Ortega a long time ago, in contrast to what happened with former substitute goalkeeper Sven Ulrich.
