Wanner’s departure draws closer: Here’s how Bayern plans to deal with the top talent
It is now a good year since Paul Wanner became the youngest Bayern player in history to make his debut in the Bundesliga match against Gladbach. Since then, the youngster has been praised over and over again, but has only collected very rare playing time. This could change in the form of a loan starting next summer.
Paul Wanner is currently a wanderer between worlds. In addition to four joker appearances for the professionals, the 17-year-old has also been playing matches for Bayern II and the U19s. Whether this back and forth is so helpful to his development may at least be doubted. According to information from the newspaper „tz“, the Bayern managers are therefore also considering a loan.
According to Sky reporter Florian Plettenberg, this could involve a club from the 1st or 2nd Bundesliga. In addition, the Austrian club RB Salzburg is also said to be in the draw. It is quite possible that other Austrian clubs are also interested in a loan of the Bayern talent. After all, Wanner was born in Austria. A loan to the Eredivisie could also be exciting, as it is considered a good training league.
Playing time the top priority for Wanner’s loan
It would be particularly important for Wanner to gain playing experience. This is definitely more crucial than playing for as big a club as possible while still in his teens. Contractually, the Munich club need not worry, as Wanner has a long-term contract until 2027. Accordingly, even a two-year loan would pose no problem at all. In any case, it is absolutely certain that Bayern will not agree to any purchase clauses in the event of a Wanner loan.
