Report: Carlos Kameni May Leave Espanyol For Bayern Munich

The hunt for the Cameroon No. 1's signature continues, and FC Hollywood seem to be closing in on his capture...
Currently a player for Espanyol, a side that is dangerously close to relegation in La Liga despite last week’s victory over hometown rivals Barcelona, goalkeeper Carlos Kameni may be signing for Bayern Munich, who are still not satisfied with their replacement of legendary ex-skipper Oliver Kahn.

It was widely believed that as soon as the season ended in Spain Kameni would join the Premier League since he refused a proposition by the Spanish club to stay four more seasons at the Luis Companis Olympic Stadium. English outfits Tottenham Hotspur, Newcastle United and Fulham were reportedly very interested in the Indomitable Lion.

Now Kameni himself has been quoted as saying that he would enjoy the challenge of the Premier League after five seasons in Spain with the Blanquiblaus.

The 25-year-old may be well advised to take a look at the Bavarians’ proposition, as they are known to be serious contenders for the Champions League every season.

His mentor and coach at Espanyol, Cameroonian legend Thomas Nkono, said that his protégé would definitely take his time to pick the best club for his future. Some rumours have him heading off to archrivals Barcelona, since Victor Valdès seems to be less and less comfortable with the Blaugrana.

In any case, the Douala native will be a hot commodity in this summer’s Mercato.
