It has been a mixed bag of results for Bayern Munich regarding loan deals for young players over the last few seasons. The standout deal from last season was that of Joshua Zirkzee. The Dutch forward was back to his best at Anderlecht. He managed to score 15+ goals for the Belgian club. The loan move helped in building Zirkzee’s confidence after a disappointing 2020/21 campaign with Die Roten and Parma.

The loan deals for younger players are crucial for their development, so Rekordmeister should be looking to achieve a much higher success rate than they have done in the recent past. The current transfer window could see one of their most talented players from the youth teams seek a loan move.

According to Bild, Paul Wanner is open to a loan move this summer to get regular game-time at the senior level. The German attacking midfielder wants to play regularly during his loan spell to break into the senior squad at Bayern eventually. The Bavarian club is currently discussing the possibility of a loan deal for the youngster.

Wanner was very close to joining Wolfsburg at the end of 2021. However, he made his senior debut at Bayern in January 2022 and eventually signed a new long-term deal. A loan move to Wolfsburg may become an option since they were interested in him last year.

Bild has not given away any other possible destinations for Wanner in this report. If Bayern decides to send him out on loan, there will be definite interest from various clubs in Germany. Wanner is highly rated in Bavaria as the club hierarchy expects him to become an integral player of the first team in the future.

There is intense competition in the attacking midfield role at Bayern. Thomas Muller is set to play regularly next season, while Leroy Sane and Jamal Musiala can also play in the same position. Paul Wanner will have to bide his time for regular opportunities with the senior team. A loan move this summer would be a step in the right direction for his development.

Bayern should do due diligence while selecting the club for Paul Wanner. They need him to play regularly at the senior level. The Bavarian club shouldn’t be afraid to send him out on loan to a second-division club in Germany as long as he is guaranteed regular playing time. He will be part of the senior team during the pre-season tour. A loan move after the tour will be ideal for Rekordmeister and Wanner.
