The winter transfer window is set to open at the end of the week. Bayern Munich is expected to deal with departures before thinking about any arrivals. Mickael Cuisance is the first senior player that is likely to get a move away from Bavaria in January.

According to Sky Sports in Germany, Venezia and CSKA Moscow have made bids worth €10 million for Cuisance. The French midfielder will now assess which project will be ideal for him going forward. Meanwhile, Footmercato in France is reporting that Die Roten has accepted both bids and left the decision on the player to select the destination.

Cuisance returned to Bavaria last summer after an unsuccessful loan spell at Marseille. The Frenchman struggled to make a positive impact in Ligue 1, which made sure that Marseille didn’t take up the option to sign him permanently.

The 22-year-old midfielder was reportedly ready for a fresh start at Bayern, but things didn’t work as he would have hoped for this season. He struggled to get adequate playing time under Julian Nagelsmann. On most weekends, Cuisance failed to make matchday squads when all midfielders were fit and available.

Mickael Cuisance arrived in Bavaria from Borussia Monchengladbach during the 2019 summer window as a replacement for Renato Sanches. The Portuguese midfielder left Die Roten to join Lille after struggling to get playing time in Bavaria. Cuisance also has a similar story to tell about his time at Die Roten.

The French midfielder didn’t get a considerable amount of playing time under Hansi Flick during his debut season. Moreover, there were reports in Germany suggesting that Rekordmeister was not pleased with the attitude of the young midfielder.

After a frustrating debut season in Bavaria, Cuisance tried to get a permanent move in 2020. A transfer fee was agreed with Leeds United, but the English club decided against signing him after he underwent medical. Rekordmeister decided to loan him out to Marseille after the move to Leeds didn’t materialise.

Mickael Cuisance desperately needs a move in January to kickstart his career. He will not get any meaningful minutes at Die Roten in the second half of the season since there are too many midfielders ahead of him in the pecking order. Die Roten will recoup the majority of the transfer fee they paid to Gladbach for Cuisance three years ago. It is a real shame that this move has not worked out for Cuisance and Die Roten, but a permanent transfer in the winter transfer will be the best solution for all parties.
