According to Bild, Bayern Munich goalkeeper Christian Früchtl suffered a serious collarbone injury while on vacation in a mountain biking accident.

With Früchtl now set for an eight-to-ten-week layoff, it’s very likely that Bayern will be unable to sell the 21-year-old this summer.

With one year left on his deal and virtually no chance to get into the Bayern first-team, the Bavarians will likely have to wait until January to let the player leave, most likely on loan.

Prior to the freak accident, there was reportedly a number of 2.Bundesliga and foreign clubs interested in bringing Früchtl into the fold this summer.

Last season, Früchtl joined Nürnberg on loan but did not see a single minute of action as he was given the number two role behind Christian Mathenia.

Früchtl came into the Bayern youth system in 2014 and has yet to see a match of professional first-team football at any level.
