Tanguy Nianzou likely to leave Bayern Munich on loan this summer

The Cote d’Ivoire prospect ended his wait for his maiden German top-flight goal as the Bavarians strolled past Union Berlin.

Tanguy Nianzou scored his first Bundesliga goal ever as Bayern Munich secured a 4-0 triumph over Union Berlin on Saturday evening.

Since joining the Bavarians two seasons ago from Paris Saint-Germain, the France youth international of Ivorian descent had played in 18 league games without luck in front goal. That is understandable because of his defensive role. However, against Urs Fischer’s side, he ended his wait for his maiden strike in the German top flight.

According to a report from Foot Mercato, Bayern Munich will send Tanguy Nianzou on a loan assignment this summer.

The young Frenchman has struggled to get consistent playing time. The Bavarians will seek to help the defender gain valuable experience on the pitch, hopefully for a team in the Champions League.

An academy graduate of Paris Saint-Germain, Nianzou made his professional debut on 7 December 2019 in a 3–1 league win against Montpellier. A few days later, he played in his first UEFA Champions League match as PSG were victorious 5–0 over Galatasaray.

He scored his first goal in a 3–0 Coupe de France win against Reims on 22 January 2020. This goal Nianzou scored was the 4,000th goal in PSG’s history. He scored his first two Ligue 1 goals in an away game that ended in a 4–4 draw against Amiens on 15 February 2020. On 11 March, Nianzou played his final match for PSG, a 2–0 UEFA Champions League victory over Borussia Dortmund. Upon the expiration of his contract, he left the Parisian club and signed for Bayern Munich on a free transfer.

According to the reports from Germany, the following summer transfer window’s departure is already recorded as part of a loan without a purchase option. Because Bayern are counting on him despite everything, but find him too tender for the moment for him to be able to claim a regular place in the professional team. This is essentially what Julian Nagelsmann explained a few weeks ago at a press conference, talking about his unreliability. From a German source, a dozen clubs, including two big Ligue 1 teams, have already come to the news. But, for the moment, neither the player, who recently changed agents nor the German club are considering a return to France.

The clubs targeted are Champions League level clubs, and Bayern are spoiled for choice to find a destination that will allow the former Parisian to gain time, gain experience and get noticed.
