BFW Postseason Breakdown: Player We Want to See Transfer out of Bayern Munich

Who will leave Bavaria this summer?

It is never easy to break into the starting XI at Bayern Munich and some players learn that the hard way. Still, there could be an opportunity for several players who have been mired on the bench to escape to greener pastures of playing time.

Could Corentin Tolisso use a fresh start? Would Chris Richards benefit from a permanent stay at a club where he could be an unquestioned starter? Should Bayern Munch try to max out the value it an get for Niklas Süle?

Those are just a few options. See what our staff thinks below:

Chuck Smith

  • Corentin Tolisso: I like Tolisso as a player, but he is 26-years-old, coming off of a few injury-plagued seasons, and desperately needs to be on a team that will include him in the starting XI on a regular basis. At Bayern Munich, that seems extremely doubtful. Tolisso probably holds decent value in the market despite his rocky past few years. Now is the time to see what he’s worth on the open market.


  • Bouna Sarr: Sarr just doesn’t seem to have the quality to play for Bayern Munich, even as a backup. If the board can recoup any money from transferring him out, they should do it. He’s dead weight on the bench.


  • Bouna Sarr: I rarely dislike players at Bayern; I have almost never wanted a player to leave unless they have caused friction within the club. Players such as Diego Contento and Andreas Ottl will always be remembered by me. Bouna Sarr though is just not someone I got used to; an experienced defender from Marseille on a four-year deal was supposed to be more than an almost never used backup — that’s exactly what Sarr turned out to be and he cannot really be trusted in too many games moving forward.

  • Bouna Sarr: The 29-year-old just hasn’t looked like he belonged at Bayern. He wasn’t helped by his defensive colleagues either in what was one of Bayern’s worst defensive seasons in the past decade. With the signing of Omar Richards, the encouraging performances of Niklas Süle at the right side of the defense and the arrival of Julian Nagelsmann, a transfer out for Sarr could be the best move for all parties involved.


  • Corentin Tolisso: There’s no denying that a fully-fit Corentin Tolisso is a robust midfielder with an elegant playing style. But the Frenchman comes across as a limited player when compared with Leon Goretzka or Joshua Kimmich. While Goretzka has developed into one of the best holding midfielders in Europe, Tolisso still seems like the kind of box-to-box player suitable for a 4-3-3 formation. At this point, he doesn’t bring anything distinct to the table, with Kimmich, Goretzka and even Jamal Musiala capable of fulfilling his role as an ‘8’. On the other hand, Bayern Munich still lack a playmaker, who can deputize for Joshua Kimmich and a backup destroyer DM. With his contract set to expire in 2023, I believe this summer is the right time for the management to cash in on Tolisso and address the true needs in midfield.

Teddy Son

  • Bouna Sarr: He does not have the skill, nor the ability to play at a mega-club like Bayern. He was adequate at best, and he was horrendous otherwise. Even the likes of Douglas Costa and Corentin Tolisso had their bright spots, albeit far and far between, but Sarr did not even have that. He is a disgrace to the club and the badge, and I bet even I would be a better right back than him. Yes, me.

That said, I’d also like to see Alexander Nübel go out on loan and get the experience he needs and deserves.
