The apparent suspension of the Bundesliga due to the Coronavirus pandemic will only benefit Bayern Munich. The German champions will have star player Robert Lewandowski back from injury by the time the Bundesliga restarts. But more importantly, it will provide them with ample time to plot a squad overhaul in the summer. And in this article, we will talk about three players Bayern should look to offload at the end of the season.

Three Players Bayern Munich Need To Offload This Summer

Jerome Boateng

Bayern Munich have been lucky to have Jerome Boateng this season following an injury crisis in the defensive department. The German did well to deputies for the injured duo of Niklas Sule and Lucas Hernandez. In fact, he built a formidable defensive partnership with David Alaba.

It helped Bayern Munich return to full form under Hansi Flick. However, the Bavarians may have to part ways with Boateng in the summer if they are to kickstart their transition in the defensive department.

Hernandez and Sule have both struggled with injuries. But, Boateng, at the age of 31, will only get slower, thus creating a massive void in the backline.

Moreover, the German’s current contract at the club expires at the end of next season. That means they will be able to sell Boateng this summer without having to see him leave the club for a free transfer the following season.

Mickael Cuisance

Mickael Cuisance was one of Bayern’s shock acquisitions last summer. The Frenchman arrived from Borussia Monchengladbach due to his lack of game-time. But, quite unsurprisingly, he has found it even more challenging to crack the first-team at Bayern. As a matter of fact, the midfielder has mustered only 37 minutes of Bundesliga football since joining his new club.

Cuisance’ career has undoubtedly come to a standstill. And if he wants to continue his progress, a move away from Allianz Arena is the logical choice. He could either leave the club on loan or permanently, but a move to somewhere like Hertha Berlin or even TSG Hoffenheim could prove to be beneficial for his career.

Sven Ulreich

Sven Ulreich has had a difficult time at Bayern Munich ever since joining the club from VfB Stuttgart back in 2015. Competing with Manuel Neuer is always a difficult task, and that is why the German has only played whenever his compatriot has struggled with injuries.

Next season, however, things could get almost impossible for Ulreich, as far as getting first-team chances are concerned. Schalke goalkeeper Alexander Nubel is set to arrive at Bayern in the summer. Although 23-year-old is expected to remain the second choice goalkeeper, for now, he is certainly identified as the long-term successor of Neuer.

Thus, a move away from Bavaria makes the most sense for Ulreich, who can still become a first-choice ‘keeper for any mid-table or lower-tier Bundesliga outfit.
