According to a report from Sport Bild, Julian Nagelsmann has already hit a bit of a wall at Bayern Munich with his transfer wish list.

Twitter account @iMiaSanMia captured Sport Bild’s story, which indicates that Nagelsmann’s requests were not economically feasible for the Bavarians at this time. In an odd twist, a scenario like this was allegedly one of the primary reasons Hansi Flick became unhappy with his role in the squad planning process:

Based on the tweet above, Bayern Munich will be leaning heavily on Nagelsmann to develop some of the young players on the roster. In lieu of expensive transfers — and based on the respective ages of some of the players Bayern Munich has in-house for next season — it can be assumed that the Bavarians are going to rely on Nagelsmann to work with youngsters like Tanguy Nianzou, Dayot Upamecano, Marc Roca, Jamal Musiala, and perhaps even a few players currently on the Bayern Munich II roster.
