Several youth players returning to Bayern Munich from loans will get the opportunity to show their stuff to new head coach Julian Nagelsmann before their futures are decided, according to a new report form Sport Bild (as captured by Twitter account @iMiaSanMia)
Adrian Fein, Oliver Batista Meier and Michaël Cuisance are all returning from mostly unsuccessful loans at PSV Eindhoven, SC Heerenveen, and Olympique Marseille. For Fein and Meier, according to the report, they are destined for a year-long loan in order to increase their value. Cuisance, however, remains a wild card.
Adrian Fein and Oliver Batista Meier are expected to go out on loan. Mickaël Cuisance's future remains open. Julian Nagelsmann wants to observe the players for the next two weeks then make a decision [@SPORTBILD]— Bayern & Germany (@iMiaSanMia) July 6, 2021
With most of Bayern’s senior squad on vacation after a long European Championships commitment, Nagelsmann gets to focus on a training group of mostly young players. Out of this bunch, Cuisance is one of the more interesting cases for Bayern.
The nearly 22-year-old attacking midfielder is still under contract in Munich for another three seasons (through 2024), so their current options with Cuisance are expansive.
- If the club sees enough from Cuisance in training that he thinks he can contribute to the first team this season, the club can keep him in Munich.
- Cuisance shows out in training, but the club think he’s just not there yet, another year-long loan could be in his future.
- However, if Cuisance can’t impress the coaching staff over these next few weeks, the Bavarians could look to unload him completely (this feels like the unlikeliest future).
Of the three players, Cuisance has the brightest future, and with new eyes on him at training, maybe his future is in Munich after all?
