While Bayern continue to search for a six, Ryan Gravenberch’s future is uncertain. According to his own statements, the Dutchman wants to stay with Munich if there is enough playing time. However, the record champions themselves do not seem to completely rule out the possibility of the 21-year-old leaving.
In all likelihood, there will still be a lot going on in FC Bayern’s midfield: Marcel Sabitzer is to leave the club, a six is still being sought – and it also needs to be clarified what will happen to Ryan Gravenberch
In an interview with the “Telegraaf”, the youngster recently said: “I just want to play more, preferably at Bayern. Otherwise at a club where I play 100%. That’s my preference. Because I don’t want to experience a year like this again.”
The Dutchman “learned a lot” from it, but he just wants to play football. Is a loan deal now an option for Munich?
Gravenberch loan for Bayern is obviously an issue
The “kicker” reports that Gravenberch could be awarded. Accordingly, the 21-year-old is considered a loan candidate due to a lack of prospects for more deployment times. This news comes as a surprise, as the Dutchman was last, if ever, associated with a sale.
The fact is, however, that Bayern already have an oversupply at headquarters in Joshua Kimmich, Leon Goretzka, Konrad Laimer and Raphael Guerreiro as another option. If a new six is then signed, Gravenberch should have poor prospects of playing times.
According to Thomas Tuchel, Gravenberch is currently “in the role of the challenger”. This does not necessarily indicate that the U21 international will receive significantly more playing time in the coming season.
