Bayern Munich will have Michaël Cuisance back in the fold after Marseille declined to take up their option on the midfielder.

The 21-year-old spent the season on loan at the Stade Vélodrome, scoring twice and providing one assist in 23 league appearances as Les Phocéens finished a disappointing fifth in Ligue 1.

A purchase option of around €18m was reported to have been agreed between the clubs, but Marseille have not been convinced enough to follow through on it.

According to German channel Sport 1, that means the former France U-21 international is scheduled to return to Bavaria for pre-season training in July.

Cuisance will need to work hard to convince new manager Julien Nagelsmann.

Sport1 also reports that, as it stands, Bayern are still actively looking to offload him.

The Strasbourg native, who moved to Munich from Borussia Mönchengladbach in 2019, has three years remaining on his contract at the Allianz Arena.
