After Noussair Mazraoui, Bayern have signed Cancelo, their second right-back within a few months. The 28-year-old is one of the best full-backs in the world and will be available under Julian Nagelsmann from the start. While the FCB fans are cheering the transfer as another “master class” from sports director Hasan Salihamidzic, Josip Stanisic’s joy should probably be limited.
The 22-year-old Croatian was allowed to play from the start in the 1-1 draw against Eintracht Frankfurt and pushed the weak Benjamin Pavard onto the bench. Stanisic put in a decent game and appeared to have a real chance to establish himself at right back in the absence of Mazraoui. With the Cancelo transfer, however, Bayern’s home-grown talent will once again take a backseat.
As “BILD” chief reporter Tobias Altschäffl reports, those responsible on the Isar continue to hold on to Stanisic, despite Cancelo. Accordingly, the World Cup third is “neither a sales nor a loan candidate”.
The reasons for this are obvious: Stanisic can be used flexibly and can act both as a left-back or in the center of defence. In addition, it is completely open when Mazraoui will be ready for action again after his pericarditis. Benjamin Pavard, on the other hand, is primarily intended for central defense in the second half of the season, according to Nagelsmann.
