Rarely has there been so much uncertainty about the Bayern squad. One thing is clear: a real nine and a six should come. Beyond that, however, there are mysteries.
Noussair Mazraoui is unhappy with his situation at Bayern
Whether Lucas Hernandez and Benjamin Pavard (both 27) will stay at Bayern, their contracts both run until 2024, is an open question. It is also questionable how things will continue with Noussair Mazraoui. After initial difficulties, the Moroccan got along better and better in Munich, and under ex-coach Julian Nagelsmann he also received more assignments before a pericarditis threw him back during the World Cup in Qatar.
Under coach Thomas Tuchel, however, according to kicker information, Mazraoui should now have the feeling that he is only needed in personnel emergencies. A situation that doesn’t make him happy. Which is why he is also busy saying goodbye. Although the Munich bosses can always insist on the contract running until 2026.
Salihamidzic said Mazraoui will stay put
Former sports director Hasan Salihamidzic had said before he left that the 25-year-old would definitely stay. This could change. But it is also clear: Because Joao Cancelo (29) is already gone and – as of now, unless anything serious changes – will not return to Säbener Straße, Pavard could also change, Mazraoui would be a third right-back who Munich would leave. Which would be difficult to replace for those responsible for Bayern.
Laimer can also defend on the right
In addition to Josip Stanisic (23), who is to stay, Konrad Laimer (27) is also considered in the mind games. The midfielder, who was brought in on a free transfer from RB Leipzig, can also defend on the right in the defensive chain. At least temporarily. Or are the Munich decision-makers planning there again with Joshua Kimmich?
