Bayern Munich’s first move of this transfer window: Ivan Mihaljević leaves Säbener Straße

New, comment

We might see some activity in the youth ranks for Bayern Munich, but this transfer window could be quiet for the senior-team.

In what will surely be one of the few moves that happens during this transfer window for Bayern Munich, Ivan Mihaljević has left the campus in favor of a transfer to Regionalliga Südwest side TSV Steinbach.

The 19-year-old center-back prospect is a Munich native with dual eligibility for international with Germany and Croatia:

Born in Munich, Ivan #Mihaljević leaves the #FCBAmateure and moves to the Regionalliga Südwest for TSV Steinbach. All the best for the future, dear Ivan! #MiaSanMia

Mihaljević played 14 games for Bayern Munich’s U-19 squad last season per Transfermarkt.

With so many top-notch defensive prospects on campus, Mihaljević was likely caught in a numbers game. Chris Richards and Tanguy Nianzou are already with the senior team, while Liam Morrison, Bright-Arrey Mbi, and Jamie Lawrence are all considered quality young players for the future of Bayern Munich’s back-line. Even more, Darmstadt-loanee Lars Lukas Mai is having a terrific season in 2. Bundesliga, which adds to the organizational congestion.

Assuredly, this window will contain more moves within the youth ranks than the senior team for Bayern Munich.
