Bayern Munich open to Serge Gnabry departure this summer

Bayern Munich open to Serge Gnabry departure this summer

Bayern Munich are looking to reshape their squad this summer at the behest of new manager Thomas Tuchel and are open to the departure of at least one winger.

According to Florian Plettenberg, forward Serge Gnabry could be allowed to leave with the club willing to consider offers for him.

Gnabry has been a core part of Bayern’s set-up since joining from Hoffenheim in 2018, contributing 76 goals and 42 assists in 200 appearances for Die Roten.

The former Arsenal prodigy has been linked with a move away from the Allianz Arena over the years, but Bayern have managed to retain his services.

Gnabry has hit double figures in goal contributions this season, bagging 12 goals and 11 assists in 42 appearances across all competitions.

His versatility has also come in handy for the Bavarians, with the Germany international able to feature on either flank or lead the line when called upon.

However, his five-year association with the German champions could end this summer, with Tuchel looking to shake things up ahead of next season.

The German tactician replaced Julian Nagelsmann at the helm over a month ago and made an instant impression by returning Bayern to the top of the Bundesliga table after beating title rivals Borussia Dortmund on his debut.

However, his tenure has gone downhill since his impressive debut, with the former Chelsea manager winning just one of his subsequent six games in all competitions that saw his side crash out of the DFB Pokal and Champions League.

Tuchel is keen to stamp his authority on the Bayern team and shape the squad in his image, which leaves the door open for a couple of departures this summer.

Gnabry’s contract at the Allianz Arena runs until 2026, but the 27-year-old could leave the club at the end of the season.

He has not decided on his future yet, and there are currently no concrete talks with other clubs over a summer move, but Bayern will reportedly entertain offers for the forward.
