Bayern Munich has done a very good job of introducing young players to the first-team squad over the past few years. The smooth development of Jamal Musiala and Alphonso Davies in the first team shows the good work Bayern has done from a coaching point of view.
Along with giving a good pathway to youngsters in the first team, Bayern has been proactive when it comes to signing the best young talent from across the world. They moved quickly to sign Davies from Vancouver Whitecaps before other top clubs joined the bidding war. The Bavarian club also showed great awareness to pounce on Musiala’s situation at Chelsea.
Die Roten can compete with clubs that can spend freely in the market, so they have to adopt a shrewd strategy to build a top-class squad. The record Bundesliga champions have been keenly following several young players at top clubs that can be developed into world-class players in Munich.
According to Goal, Die Roten is keeping a close eye on the situation of PSG’s two young talents. The Bavarian club has been regularly enquiring about El Chadaille Bitshiabu (17) and Warren Zaire-Emery (16). Both players have signed professional contracts with PSG, but Rekordmeister remains interested in both players.
Zaire-Emery started in the midfield against Bayern in the first leg of the Champions League round of 16 last week. The youngster delivered a very solid performance against a difficult opposition. Meanwhile, Bitshiabu has featured for PSG in Ligue 1 and domestic cup competitions this season. The youngster has played in central defense for the French club.
PSG is unlikely to part ways with both youngsters anytime soon since they are part of the first-team squad at such a young age. However, Bayern will be ready to pounce if a situation arises if these young players look to leave Paris for other projects.
The French team was annoyed with Die Roten in 2020 when Hasan Salihamidzic managed to sign Tanguy Nianzou on a free transfer. The French defender was playing in the first team at PSG, but he decided against signing a new deal. Rekordmeister allowed him to join Sevilla last summer with a buyback clause since they are still confident about his talent to shine in the future.

Bitshiabu and Zaire-Emery may not be immediate transfer targets for Bayern, but they will certainly keep an eye on their situation in the long run. For now, Die Roten’s focus in the summer will be to strengthen the attack with a striker and most likely renegotiate a permanent deal for Joao Cancelo.
