Recent rumors have hinted that both youngsters are not entirely happy with their respective status on the squad.
Musiala went from being a regular — and productive — contributor to being relegated to mostly bench duty and spot starts. Nianzou, meanwhile, has been buried behind older, better players in Niklas Süle, Dayot Upamecano, and Lucas Hernandez.
How Julian Nagelsmann manages playing time for the two youngsters remains to be seen, but kicker says that the boss liked Nianzou’s effort against Benfica and is targeting a start against Dynamo Kyiv for the Frenchman. Similarly, Musiala’s next appearance in the starting XI could be against Dynamo as well.
For his part, Musiala is said to be “patient”, but is concerned with his lack of playing time. Musiala could also be looking for a chat with the coach shortly.
