Bayern Munich’s roster is still packed with talent at just about every position on the first-team — and that does not even count the youngsters currently playing for Bayern Munich II in 3.Liga or the prospects on Bayern Munich’s youth teams.

There are, however, several key players out on loan. Here is a recap of how each player is doing:

Michaël Cuisance — Olympique Marseille — Ligue One (France)

The highest profile of Bayern Munich’s loanees, Cuisance is playing a lot and gaining experience in both Ligue 1 and the Champions League. In 15 contests across all competitions for Olympique Marseille this season, Cuisance has only registered one assist, and while he is completing 84% of his passes, it seems that he’s hit a bit of a wall with his performances.

Given his opportunities, the #StepOverKing should be producing at a much higher rate. Simply put, he has to be better, and it is probably time to start getting at least a little concerned.

Adrian Fein — PSV Eindhoven — Eredivisie (Netherlands)

Ah, now we have a loanee, which is actually trending upwards! After a slow start, Fein is finally getting a chance to prove himself.

For the Dutch side, Fein has appeared in 12 games and played 381 minutes total. Fein has one goal and assist but is completing 88% of his passes. This is a marked improvement from earlier in the season for Fein, who has now appeared in five of the last six games for PSV Eindhoven.

Funny enough for Fein, he scored his goal as an attacking midfielder, and not from his normal position in the defensive midfield.

Lars Lukas Mai — SV Darmstadt 98 — 2. Bundesliga (Germany)

Mai is still racking up valuable minutes with Darmstadt and is putting together some nice footage for Bayern Munich — or any other interested team — to view.

Mai has only sat for seven total minutes all season for Darmstadt (not including a one game ban for yellow card accrual). In 14 games across all competitions, Mai has two assists, a 90% passing accuracy rate with 3.0 interceptions per game and 3.5 tackles per game. Mai is also winning 80% of his ground duels and 57% of his aerial duels.

Clearly, this loan has been a win for all parties.

Sarpreet Singh — 1. FC Nürnberg — 2. Bundesliga (Germany)

Singh is starting to get a little more run with Der Club. The New Zealand native has eight overall appearances for FC Nürnberg, where he has played 264 minutes but with no goals or assists.

Singh has played 87 minutes in the last two games, which shows he may be starting to prove himself in training, but with a lack of production, he clearly has a long way to go. Singh is only completing 78% of his passes as well.

Christian Fruchtl — 1. FC Nürnberg — 2. Bundesliga (Germany)

Nothing has changed.

Fruchtl still has zero appearances. This loan assignment just has not worked out. Hopefully this is a case that Fruchtl does not have the necessary experience that Der Club needs right now rather than gaping holes within his game.

Oliver Batista Meier — SC Heerenveen — Eredivisie (Netherlands)

Batista Meier has one goal and two assists in 11 games across all competitions for SC Heerenveen, but has played 142 minutes in his last three games after missing a long spell due to COVID-19.

Batista Meier, who has the flexibility to playing as an attacking midfielder, second striker, or winger has been picking up most of his minutes as an attacking midfielder per Transfermarkt.

Alex Timossi Andersson — Helsingborgs IF —Allsvenskan (Sweden)

The Bayern Munich U-19 player is about to end his loan with the Swedish first-tier side and has had a nice run in his homeland. The youngster has made 28 appearances racking up five goals and two assists in 1629 minutes overall.

In his last game against Norrköping on December 6th, Andersson has a goal and an assist.

Jakob Mayer — TSV 1860 Rosenheim — Regionalliga Bayern (Germany)

Mayer, a 19-year-old goalkeeper, has made two appearances for 1860 Rosenheim and conceded nine goals. Mayer has not played since October 24th. The team has not played, however, since October 31st as Regionalliga play in most areas was suspended.

Jonas Kehl — SSV Ulm 1846 Fußball — Regionalliga Südwest (Germany)

Kehl, a left-back, is at least playing regularly with 13 appearances across all competitions and has tallied six assists. Kehl has played 1053 minutes of field time and two yellow cards. Some reports think Kehl is showing promising signs during this loan stint, which ends next June.

SSV Ulm 1846 Fußball lost 3-1 Schalke 04 in the DFB-Pokal on December 22nd, but Kehl did not play.

Marvin Cuni — SG Sonnenhof Großaspach — Regionalliga Südwest (Germany)

Cuni, a 19-year-old right-wing, is the most productive of the Bayern Munich loanees. With 10 goals in 16 appearances (covering 1347 minutes), Cuni has shown really well in Regionalliga Südwest and Württembergpokal.

Jahn Herrmann — Hannover 96 II — Regionalliga Nord (Germany)

A 19-year-old attacking midfielder, Herrmann has one goal and two assists in nine appearances in Regionalliga Nord.

The team has not played, however, since October 16th as Regionalliga play in most areas was suspended.
