Bayern Munich’s Lars Lukas Mai is waiting for the roster wreckage to clear

The young defender is going to wait to see how the Bayern Munich rosters shakes out before deciding what his next move is.

Bayern Munich defender Lars Lukas Mai is one of the key young players that is expected to test the transfer waters this summer. At 19, many — including Mai himself — think that the center-back is ready for first-team football.

Given that Bayern’s current depth chart at central defense includes Niklas Sule, Mats HummelsJerome Boateng, Lucas Hernandez, and Benjamin Pavard, it is not a stretch to think that Mai should look to leave Säbener Strasse in hopes of finding first-team minutes.

With the recent news that Hummels might be bolting for Borussia Dortmund and the persistent rumors that Boateng is also set to leave, however, Mai is delaying his potential exit until he can get a view of what the picture looks like for the 2019-2020 season at center-back for Bayern.

Should Hummels and Boateng both exit and if Bayern fails to add another player, Mai could be in line for a first-team roster spot. Per Sport 1 and TZ reporter Jonas Austermann, Mai is going to see how things play out with 2014 World Cup winners before he addresses his own situation.
