In what seems to be a situation where Bayern Munich would prefer to not bring back one of its loanees, the Bavarians are reportedly hoping Olympique Marseille will exercise the purchase option on the skilled 21-year-old per Sport Bild’s print edition.

Highly-talented and mercurial, Cuisance bolted to France for a loan stint in hopes of being able to showcase his impressive skills. While Olympique Marseille manager Andre Villas Boas reportedly is happy with Cuisance, the player has not exactly lit up the scoresheet in Ligue One.

Cuisance has no goals and one assist in 18 games across all competitions this season for Marseille and would seemingly be facing an uphill battle to break into the Bayern Munich starting lineup any time soon if he returned to Germany:

With Michaël Cuisance (21), who was loaned to Olympique Marseille, there is hope that the French pull the purchase option, which would bring Munich 18 million euros. Coach André Villas-Boas has made a strong case for a commitment.

Bayern Munich’s acquisition of Cuisance from Borussia Monchengladbach did not make much sense at the moment back in 2019 given the midfield depth in Bavaria at the time, but the move looks even more questionable now.

The #StepOverKing had a bit of a cult following for a bit with Bayern Munich because he took every opportunity he could to showcase his skills when given a chance with the Bavarians. It just appears, however, that the move did not ultimately help the player or the club and the youngster might have been better off staying with M’Gladbach.
