Bayern Munich are reportedly interested in signing Morocco goalkeeper Bono as they look to bring in a replacement for Manuel Neuer.
Neuer has been Bayern’s No 1 for over a decade, but has been ruled out for the rest of the season after breaking his leg while skiing following Germany’s World Cup exit.
The German champions are keen to bring in someone to deputise for Neuer, and have their sights set on Bono, according to AS.

Bayern Munich are considering bringing in Sevilla goalkeeper Bono as a replacement
Croatian shot-stopper Dominik Livakovic has also been mentioned as a possible option, but it is understood that Bayern’s CEO Oliver Kahn, who formerly played in goal for the club, is particularly impressed by Bono.
Bono is currently at Sevilla, and has been on the club’s books since 2019, including an initial loan spell.
He has a contract with the Spanish club until 2025, and is also attracting interest from other clubs including Aston Villa.
The 31-year-old has made a name for himself at the World Cup in Qatar during Morocco’s historic run to the semi-finals.
Bono has started four of Morocco’s five games to date, only missing their second group game with Belgium due to illness.

He has only conceded one goal, keeping clean sheets against Croatia, Spain and Portugal.
The 31-year-old was Morocco’s hero in their last-16 clash with Spain, saving spot-kicks in the penalty shootout from Carlos Soler and Sergio Busquets to send his side through.
Morocco are the first African nation to make the last-four of a World Cup, and they have the chance to create further history when they take on France on Wednesday night.
Should they pull off another upset, they will then play Argentina in Sunday’s final.
