After his record debut a week earlier against Borussia Mönchengladbach, the youngster Paul Wanner was also able to get a taste of more Bundesliga air for FC Bayern at 1. FC Köln (4-0). The sporting future of the top talent at Munich should be decided on the top executive floor.
After his first Bundesliga appearance against Gladbach, it became known that the 16-year-old jewel only has a current contract with the German record champions until the end of the season. How things will continue from the summer is still open after his second substitution in the football upper house.
According to a report by “kicker”, FC Bayern should fight “intensely” to ensure that Wanner remains tied to the club.
For the midfield talent, it is far from clear whether the Munich team will continue. The teenager wants and needs play time to be able to continue to develop at the highest level in his young years. The fact that he cannot be guaranteed this with the leaders of the table could become a sticking point.
Paul Wanner has been playing for FC Bayern since 2018
As the media report goes on to say, Wanner’s future should be discussed at the highest executive level of the club. Chairman of the board Oliver Kahn, sports director Hasan Salihamidzic and technical director Marco Neppe have already taken on the cause.
If the Bayern club bosses have their way, Wanner will probably soon be extending his long-term contract at Säbener Straße. That there could then be a loan deal with another Bundesliga club in the future is by no means ruled out.
The left-footed player has played at all youth stations at FC Bayern over the past four years and has already played in the UEFA Youth League this season when he was just 15 years old. He came to the German industry leader in 2018 at the age of twelve from FV Ravensburg.
