Julian Nagelsmann might not be getting any players from the initial transfer wish list he submitted to Bayern Munich, but the new boss apparently did make some headway on which positions might need to be addressed.
According to a report from Sport Bild (as captured by Twitter account @MiaSanMia), Nagelsmann and Bayern Munch have agreed that the club needs another right-back and potentially a central midfielder:
The club and Nagelsmann are in agreement that a new right-back is needed. Another option in central midfield is also conceivable (depending on the future of Tolisso and Cuisance) [@SPORTBILD]— Bayern & Germany (@iMiaSanMia) May 18, 2021
Interestingly, Corentin Tolisso and Michael Cuisance are two players that could conceivably be sold this summer. Tolisso has had an injury-plagued tenure with the Bavarians and could potentially use a fresh start, while Cuisance struggled to find field time in Munich before what could be considered an unsuccessful loan stint with Olympique Marseille. Both have tantalizing potential and could possibly benefit from a spell working with Nagelsmann, who is renowned for his ability in developing young players.
As for the right-back position, Benjamin Pavard has had an extremely strong second half of the season, while Bouna Sarr has not been good since transferring to the club in 2020. There was not a clear indication whether or not Nagelsmann felt the team needed a new starter or a new back-up at right-back, but adding another player at the position seems to be the number one item on the team’s agenda.
