City’s England international is one of the leaders at the club. The two-year deal being offered highlights how important he is to the squad.
Walker had an interrupted season as City clinched the treble. A groin injury caused the City right back to miss games before the World Cup. Post the World Cup, Pep Guardiola made a tactical shift and went to four centre backs in defense and Walker was dropped from the starting lineup.
He forced his way back into the starting lineup for the latter part of the season. Walker starred against Real Madrid over two legs in the Champions League semi-final win. He started the FA Cup final win over Manchester United.
He did however miss out on the starting lineup for the Champions League final win against Inter Milan.
There is interest in the City full-back from Bayern Munich. Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano reported that Thomas Tuchel has Walker near the top of his transfer list. Romano also reports that Tuchel is the driving force behind Bayern’s push for Walker.
At this stage, there is no timeline for a decision from Walker. Fabrizio Romano reported last week that was a decision coming this coming week, but there has been no decision made as of yet.
