One of the hot topics that will be discussed in the coming weeks will be the squad planning that will go into Bayern Munich’s roster for the 2023/24 season.

According to information captured by @iMiaSanMia, Bayern Munich will meet with head coach Thomas Tuchel in six weeks to assess the current group of players and target new players that could be acquired over the summer:

Bayern bosses have a meeting scheduled with Thomas Tuchel in six weeks to discuss the squad planning for next season — and decide which type of players are needed and which players should leave. The main point of discussion will be a new striker.

Tuchel also addressed the situation in his postgame comments after Bayern Munich was eliminated form the Champions league by Manchester City.

“We’re still getting to know each other. I am involved and will give my opinion. I don’t think we’re going to fight over it. But first we have to get the maximum out of this squad before we think about reinforcements,” Tuchel said (as captured by @iMiaSanMia).

The club will have a number of key decisions to make. Let’s just throw some things at the wall:

  • The lack of a true striker and how to get one that won’t wreck the budget completely.
  • A decision on whether the team wants to continue on with players like Sadio Mané and Serge Gnabry.
  • The unhappiness of players like Noussair Mazraoui and Ryan Gravenberch with their current roles.
  • A decision on whether or not Tuchel wants to move forward with Leon Goretzka, who has drawn the ire of the coach.
  • Where does Thomas Müller fit into the club’s plans (if at all)?
  • A decision on contract extensions for Lucas Hernandez and suddenly-out-of-favor Alphonso Davies.
  • Figuring out what to do with the four goalkeepers scheduled to be on the roster next season: Manuel Neuer, Yann Sommer, Alexander Nübel, and Sven Ulreich.
  • A decision on whether or not to buy Manchester City loanee Joao Cancelo.

For some of those players, the Slim Reaper will cometh for their Bayern Munich careers.
