This is why Serge Gnabry can be dispensed with at Bayern Munich

In addition to Robert Lewandowski’s uncertain future, Serge Gnabry’s place at Bayern Munich is also not certain. A poker contract with the national player could lead to a departure this summer – perhaps not a crucial weakness for the Munich team.

The status of Serge Gnabry’s contract at Bayern Munich has been the subject of much speculation for months.

One thing is clear: Bayern Munich wants to extend his contract with the international and has presented the attacking man with a contract offer ready to sign. According to media reports, Gnabry could earn between 17-19 million euros in the future with Munich. But Gnabry was reluctant so far and did not want to accept the employer’s offer.

In the meantime, Bayern Munich’s attitude towards the winger appears to have changed: if Gnabry still does not want to extend and decide on a future together, he should leave this summer.

It was recently reported that the pain threshold for a timely transfer should be €60m. Real Madrid may appear in particular in these dimensions after the failure of attempts to transfer Mbappe to the Spanish capital.

Bayern wins matches without Serge Gnabry

Unlike Robert Lewandowski, Gnabry is not considered indispensable to the people of Munich. Bayern Munich have had great matches with the Stuttgart native in the past four years – but also without him.

Usually the national player comes out on top in matches where Bayern dominate and really excel. He scored 14 out of 17 goals this season in the Bundesliga and the Champions League when Bayern ended up winning by at least two goals anyway. Examples are 5:0 against Dynamo Kyiv or 7:1 against RB Salzburg in the first division as well as 7:0 against VfL Bochum or 4:1 at Hertha BSC and SC Freiburg.

If FC Bayern is strong and dominant, Gnabry usually performs at the top level. But especially in games where the German industry leader does not work, Gnabry also often dives.

The different player who wants to be himself pushes himself to the front in these games and takes responsibility. This is rarely seen in the case of the wing.

Gnabry lost against Gladbach and Villarreal with Bayern Munich

The sticking point in recent months, why Bayern’s tenth successive title season has not been so good, lie in the knockout matches in the cup competition against Borussia Mönchengladbach in the DFB Cup (0:5) and in the two matches with Villarreal (0-1, 1-). 1) In the Champions League.

At Gladbach and Villarreal, Gnabry went down in his colors and was replaced early after disappointing performances. In the second leg of the quarter-final against the Spaniards, coach Julian Nagelsmann completely dispensed with the Bayern star and only brought him to Jamal Musila after 82 minutes.

Gnabry is simply not as important and valuable as the player and his environment that you would like to see themselves with Bayern Munich.

Mane successor to Gnabry in Bayern?

The football category of the undisputed 27-year-old national player. But it is not at the level that Bayern managers around CEO Oliver Kahn and sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic would not be able to find again if Gnabry did indeed split.

Lately, rumors have been brewing that Sadio Mane of Liverpool FC could be a serious option at Säbener Straße. A player who, over the years, has proven time and time again that he can make the difference for his club.



On the other hand, Gnabry could have positioned himself on the sales list with the now common situation of complaining about being underappreciated at the club while at the same time reaching out to greater salary demands.

The 26-year-old has been a constant in the Bayern side for the past four years. He won the German championship in Munich every year and was an important part of the trio of the fantastic season 2019/2020.

But he is not indispensable to Bayern, as multiple world-class goalkeeper and captain Manuel Neuer, midfield driver and mentality monster of Joshua Kimmich or two-time world footballer and goal record Robert Lewandowski.
