Bayern Munich aren’t exactly known for their youth development. It is a rare occasion that an academy product reaches the senior team and establishes a role with them. Coach Thomas Tuchel, who appears to prefer using proven players, will give the youth a chance to impress against Manchester City and Liverpool at their preseason tour in Japan:
Thomas Tuchel will take Arijon Ibrahimović and Gabriel Vidović to Bayern’s Asia tour. Malik Tillman will stay in Munich as his move is expected to take place this week (he has 3 options in the Bundesliga and 2 abroad)

Malik Tillman will decide on his next club and won’t go to Japan, but someone else will be: 2 m / 6’7 youth GK Tom Ritzy Hulsmann:
Of all the youth players we have, I want Hulsmann to become our starting GK at the senior team somewhere down the line. We’ve rarely had players that are as tall as him and it’ll be interesting to see where he goes from here.
A few other players made the squad in the end, too: Frans Krätzig, Aleksandar Pavlović and Antonio Tikvić. Along with Paul Wanner, all of the young guns will be hoping to make an impression to Tuchel.
