Bayern Munich midfielder Mickael Cuisance flattered by Marseille links.

Midfield department has been the talking point for Bayern Munich in the past few weeks. The futures of Javi Martinez, Thiago Alcantara, and Corentin Tolisso is uncertain. There is a strong possibility that all three players might be playing in different colours next season.

Apart from these three players, Mickael Cuisance has also linked with a loan move away from the club. The French midfielder was linked with Marseille at the end of the Bundesliga campaign as he has endured frustrating debut year in Bavaria.

Despite struggling to get playing time consistently throughout the year, Cuisance ended the season on a good note. He scored his first goal for the club against Wolfsburg on the final day. Since the restart, he got much more minutes from the bench including a couple of starts too.

Speaking to L’Equipe (via this week, Cuisance admitted that he is flattered by the interest shown by Marseille. However, the French midfielder is focussed on playing regularly at Bayern next season, hinting that a loan move is unlikely to be on the cards this summer.

"“I have seen that the club is interested, that flatters me.”“I’m happy for them. But today I’m still concentrating on what I have to do. And that’s my project at Bayern.”"

Cuisance showed in the final gameweeks of the Bundesliga that he could flourish in the number eight role. The Frenchman can excel in the number eight role with regular playing time. He is unlikely to be first choice midfielder for Die Roten next year, but he can play a significant role over the season if key midfielders leave the club.

Flick is likely to stick with the midfield pairing with Joshua Kimmich and Leon Goretzka next season. Cuisance could end up becoming a deputy for Goretzka since he is a more dynamic midfielder, and a deeper role might not suit the Frenchman. He has always maintained the stance that he wants to succeed at the club, so Cuisance may reject loan moves even if the club signs a midfielder.

The club is also likely to allow Adrian Fein to become a part of the senior squad after impressing during the loan spell at Hamburg. Die Roten has hinted that there will be no big-money signings this summer after signing Leroy Sane, so they may stick with young players such as Fein and Cuisance.

Moreover, Flick has shown in his short tenure that he is capable of relying on young players and developing them into important first-team players. Cuisance has looked more confident in the final few weeks of the Bundesliga campaign, so it is good to see him being optimistic about becoming a key player for the German Champions.
