Properly developing the youth?

When Bayern Munich confirmed their acquisition of highly rated Adelaide United winger Nestory Irankunda, it got people hyped because of the immense load of talent the 17-year-old possesses at a steal. The Bavarians plan to put the young Australian with the reserve team for the time being:

As of now, Nestory Irankunda is planned for FCB II next season. Until then, the club will watch his performances with Adelaide United closely. There’s talk at the Campus that the Regionalliga may already be too small for him if he continues to perform the way he’s doing now. Bayern believe Irankunda has the quality to make a similar development to Alphonso Davies. The Canadian had joined the club in early January 2019, only to make his Bundesliga debut three weeks later.

The likes of Alphonso Davies and Jamal Musiala made early breakthroughs in the senior team and are now mainstays of the first XI. Irankunda may very well be the next young superstar to be fast tracked to the first team.
