Bayern Munich right-back Bouna Sarr has been linked with a move away from the Bavarian club, but it appears that the 29-year-old wants to stay and try to earn his place under Julian Nagelsmann.

There has been rampant speculation that Sarr would seek to move on given his lack of field time over the course of this season, but it looks as if Sarr will attempt prove his mettle next season in Germany per Tz’s Philipp Kessler:

There is nothing to the rumors from France about a possible return of Bouna #Sarr to #OlympiqueMarseille. The Frenchman wants to fight for his place at #FCBayern and hopes for a fresh start under #Nagelsmann .#FCBTransfersommer @mano_bonke

The surprising part of the story is that Sarr allegedly has the chance to go back to Olympique Marseille, but will spurn that offer — at least for now.

A key aspect of Sarr’s situation is what formation Nagelsmann will opt to run. Should Nagelsmann’s set-up include wing-backs, Sarr’s value could potentially be enhanced — if he can find his form. That is a big “if”, however, as Sarr was not impressive during his time on the field this season with Bayern Munich.
