According to a report from Bild, new Bayern Munich boss Julian Nagelsmann took a look at the club’s youth players and thinks there could be a place for several of the top, young players on Säbener Straße:
While many Bayern stars are still on the road with their national teams in the summer (including at the European Championship), the talents in Munich can collect plus points from new coach Julian Nagelsmann (33).
So that the coach has enough professionals for training when training starts on July 5th at Säbener Straße (first performance diagnostics), the squad will be filled with a few young talents. A great opportunity for the next generation, because Nagelsmann is considered a good sponsor.
Specifically, Nagelsmann has plans for the following Bayern Munich prospects:
- Christopher Scott: Nagelsmann considered Scott the player most ready to make an impact because of his speed and ball skills.
- Malik Tillman: Tillman tore his ACL last season, but worked hard to get himself back and healthy. Tillman is considered the youth player most physically ready for the first-team.
- Chris Richards: Richards’ situation is a little more complex. After a wildly successful loan stint at Hoffenheim, TSG is eager to bring Richards back — which might not be a bad idea if he can put in a full Bundesliga campaign in the starting XI. Richards is considered a consummate professional even as a 21-year-old.
- Justin Che: As we learned last night, Bayern Munich representative are in the United States in an effort to negotiate a deal for Che. The 17-year-old is versatile enough to play center-back and both full-back positions.
- Armindo Sieb: An attacking players known for his dribbling skills, Sieb is considered one of the brightest young offensive talents on campus.
- Josip Stanisic: Like Richards, Stanisic’s situation is complex. Technically, the 21-year-old is sprinting toward free agency and could start weighing offers from other clubs. Bayern Munich wants to keep him, however, and is reportedly working to get a deal done.
How realistic it would be for some — or any — of these players to make the first-team roster remains to be seen. Nagelsmann, though, is known for his ability to work with young players and might be able to bring the best out of any of the players listed above.
