Ever since joining Bayern Munich from Borussia Monchengladbach at the end of this summer’s transfer window, it hasn’t really worked out for Michael Cuisance. The midfielder has only made 4 appearances for the first team this season; 3 times in the Bundesliga and once in the DFB-Pokal. Most of his time has been spent playing with Bayern’s reserves in the 3. Liga, though he has had his fair share of injury problems as well.
Per Manuel Bonke of Tz, Cuisance is ready and willing to stay in Munich to try and assert himself, despite interest from Serie A. Despite him hardly featuring for the first team, too, Bayern isn’t ready to let him go just yet. It seems that there’s an understanding between the player and the club that he should stay in Munich and do everything he can to prove himself. The COVID-19 pandemic could give him a larger window to do so and it also puts the summer transfer window in significant jeopardy. Even if he wanted to leave Bayern, it might not be as cut-and-dry of a process as it could be.
Neben der Tatsache, dass der #FCBayern derzeit nicht plant, Michael #Cuisance abzugeben, schließt der Spieler selbst ein Engagement in der italienischen Serie A - und somit beim AC Mailand - komplett aus. Der junge Franzose möchte sich in München durchsetzen. #FCBTransfersommer https://t.co/W5rxebqI3B— Manuel Bonke (@mano_bonke) March 26, 2020
Gazzetto dello Sport (via Football-Italia.net) had reported earlier this week that AC Milan were keen on acquiring Cuisance’s services during the next transfer window. The Rossoneri is facing the prospect of losing midfielders Lucas Biglia and Giacomo Bonaventura as both of their contracts with Milan expire on June 30th of this year. Both players play integral roles in Milan’s midfield and it’s understood that the club’s chief scout, Geoffrey Moncada is a big fan of Cuisance’s. Moncada feels that the Frenchmen fits the bill for Milan perfectly; a young, inexpensive midfielder with plenty of potential to develop in a squad that’s less star-studded than Bayern’s. Moncada also tracked Cuisance during the U-20 World Cup in 2019 when the midfielder showcased strong performances playing for France.
What do you all think? Should Cuisance stay and try to assert himself, or should we let him go for somewhere between 10 and 15-million Euros? Let us know in the comments section!
