Midfielder Ryan Gravenberch has commented on his difficult situation at Bayern Munich and has not ruled out a change next summer.
“I’d rather be successful with Bayern. But if that doesn’t work and I don’t get any chances, then maybe I should look elsewhere. But that’s not what concerns me at the moment,” Gravenberch told the portal Ajax Showtime.
The 20-year-old Dutchman switched from Ajax to Munich last summer for 18.5 million euros. A step that he has not regretted, despite unsatisfactory seasons so far: “I definitely hoped and also expected that I would play more at Bayern Munich. So far it hasn’t gone as expected,” Gravenberch explained, but emphasized: ” It’s a shame for me, but I’m fine with it.”
Gravenberch has only been in Bayern’s starting line-up four times so far across all competitions. In total, the technician makes 26 appearances for FCB (one goal, one assist).
Since Gravenberch has not gotten beyond the joker role to date, a farewell to Munich was already being discussed in January. Liverpool FC in particular is said to have expressed interest in the eleven-time national player.
It is quite possible that the Reds will be an issue again in the summer. Whether Gravenberch may play more often under Julian Nagelsmann’s successor Thomas Tuchel also plays a decisive role.
In any case, the contract of the former Ajax star with Bayern runs until 2027.
