thumbnail Hello,

The Champions League finalists are looking to add another goalkeeper to their squad this summer, but have reportedly opted against signing the Hamburg man

Bayern Munich have decided to end their pursuit of Hamburg goalkeeper Jaroslav Drobny for financial reasons, Bild reports.

The Bavarians are keen to sign a new shot stopper in the summer transfer window because of the retirement of current back-up keeper Hans-Jorg Butt, and they supposedly saw the 32-year-old Drobny as the perfect candidate.

However, they have now opted against signing Drobny due to HSV's excessive asking price for the goalkeeper.

Hamburg reportedly demand a €3 million transfer fee for Drobny, prompting Bayern to turn their attention elsewhere.

FCB could now move for Bayer Leverkusen's Fabian Giefer instead as they see the 22-year-old as a cheaper alternative. Giefer has a contract with Leverkusen until the summer of 2013, and could be available for less than €1m.
