Manchester City will not block Kyle Walker from joining Bayern Munich, talkSPORT understands.
As talkSPORT revealed on Thursday, Walker is looking to quit City after finding his playing time at the Etihad reduced.
German giants Bayern are actively exploring a move for the England full-back.
talkSPORT revealed earlier in the week how he is attracting interest from boyhood club Sheffield United and teams in Saudi Arabia.
Sky Germany claim that Bayern manager Thomas Tuchel has already spoken to Walker about a move, but the club are yet to contact his representatives.
The 33-year-old saw his impact on City’s treble-winning campaign dwindle as the season progressed.
Boss Pep Guardiola settled on a 3-2-4-1 formation, which saw Walker often left out of the line-up.
He then started on the bench in the club’s Champions League final win over Inter Milan, potentially influencing his future even further.
With a contract that ends in 2024, this could be the final chance for City to recoup a fee for Walker.
Sky Germany also claim that Leipzig defender Josko Gvardiol has verbally agreed on a move to the Etihad.
Along with Walker, fellow full-back Joao Cancelo could be allowed to depart the Etihad this summer.
He spent the second half of the 2022/23 season on loan at Bayern, who decided against turning his temporary stay into a permanent switch.
Arsenal are believed to be keen on Cancelo, but it remains to be seen whether City will sell to the Gunners as they look to mount another title tilt.
