Per a report from Bild (as captured by Twitter account @iMiaSanMia), Bayern Munich manager Hansi Flick would not engage in discussions publicly about a potential overhaul for the squad’s roster.

Rather than stoke any fires in the media, Flick gave an appropriate, vanilla response that prevented any type of firestorm emerging:

Surely, there will be multiple discussions regarding the future of the roster based on what we already know. With David Alaba, Jerome Boateng, and Angelo Stiller confirmed to be leaving the club and the futures of Javi Martinez, Corentin Tolisso, Fiete Arp, Ron-Thorben Hoffman, and Alexander Nübel all linked with transfers or loans, the Bavarians might need to examine how to best round out the roster. In addition, Tiago Dantas (loan ending) could also leave Säbener Straße.

Center-back Dayot Upamecano is confirmed as a signing for next season, while Reading FC full-back Omar Richards is reportedly also a done deal. Otherwise, Bayern Munich has a few key loanees due to return in Chris Richards, Christian Früchtl, Joshua Zirkzee, and Adrian Fein. In addition, Michaël Cuisance could potentially find his way back to Germany as well after a loan stint with Olympique Marseille.

There will undoubtedly be moves made, but who comes in and who goes out remains to be seen.
