Clubs in the Premier League have been alerted after Bayern Munich midfielder Ryan Gravenberch has hit out at his German employer for the lack of chances he had since joining the club last summer. The 20-year-old joined from Ajax and has only managed get playing time in 28 games with only four of these games coming as a starter.
The midfielder has been drawing some interest of a number of Premier League sides, with Manchester United, Liverpool and Arsenal reportedly interested. In talks with Voetbal International, Gravenberch has hit out at Bayern, claiming he will not be accepting anoter season with limited game time and will be considering a move away from the club if his game time does not increase.
“In the beginning, of course, I had to get used to it here, a new environment,” Gravenberch said in the interview. “Everything is much faster, sometimes even training sessions felt like competitions. It’s a top European club, you can’t miss a thing, but I feel like that ‘getting used to it’ has been behind my for a while now.”
“Training and playing at the top level for a year is beautiful and instructive. I say playing, but it’s mainly training. That has to change next season, then I really want to play weekly again. I haven’t spoken to the club management yet, so just wait and see what happens. But it’s clear that this role does not match my expectations.”
