Bayern Munich are reportedly ready to allow Tanguay Nianzou to leave on loan. He is going to reportedly join Ligue 1 side OGC Nice on a loan deal.
However, the deal has not been fully wrapped up. Although, both the parties expect to confirm the deal barring any last-minute problems.
WHY ARE BAYERN MUNICH ALLOWING TANGUAY NIANZOU TO LEAVE THE CLUB?
According to reports, Bayern Munich and OGC Nice almost have a full agreement for Tanguay Nianzou. He was once touted as the future star for the club. However, the defender has failed to live up to expectations. The coach and fans are both happy to let him leave the club. Bayern Munich have also signed center-back Matthis De Ligt from Juventus.
The new signing makes Tanguay the fifth choice center-back at the club. Hence, this has raised questions about his immediate future. There are reports suggesting that he may head out on loan for this season. Now, it seems Nice may be a potential destination for the defender. There are also rumors that Sevilla are also exploring the option of signing him.
TANGUAY NIANZOU IS ALSO OPEN TO HIS DEPARTURE
The report also suggests that the defender is open to a departure. He is reportedly desperate for regular game time. Hence, Bayern officials are exploring options for the defender. They are open to let him leave where he can get regular game time and develop. Hence, the OGC Nice option is being considered. Although, the French club have still not opened discussions with the Bundesliga giants.
This is due to Nice’s hierarchy being split on his signing. They are reportedly concerned by his injury record at Bayern. The French defender struggled with injuries last season. It has also made it for him to stake a claim for a place in the starting XI. There are also suggestions that Bayern Munich would like to loan him to a Bundesliga outfit as he will adapt quickly to the league.
However, no Bundesliga clubs have expressed interest in the defender. Nianzou played only 874 minutes last season. He managed one goal and one assist in the 22 appearances. However, Bayern Munich thinks the defender needs to play much more regularly to continue his development
