Bayern Munich Player Wants Move Away From Club Weeks After Joining
Bayern Munich have recruited heavily this summer with the signings of Serge Gnabry, Corentin Tolisso and most recently the initial loan acquisition of James Rodriguez.
Though after securing the services of Gnabry following an impressive spell in the Bundesliga with Werder Bremen, the player has asked to leave the club on loan.
Gnabry bagged 11 league goals from 27 appearances while producing heroics on his Germany debut. He netted a hat-trick against San Marino, and starred for the under-21's as they won the European Championships.

The 21-year-old penned a three-year contract with Bayern but through his agent has requested a move away as revealed by chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge.
"It's well known Serge actually would like to spend another year on loan. He has personally requested this and his agent too," said Rummenigge via ESPN.
The German champions remain very busy in the transfer market and will assess the clubs outgoings. Fellow Bundesliga outfit Hoffeheim are reportedly the favourites to land the player ahead of next season.
"We're appraising the situation calmly, and will wait to see what we still do in the transfer market," he added.

As well as Gnabry, Renato Sanches could also experience a spell away from the Allianz Arena.
The Portuguese starlet failed to live up his lofty expectations with Rummenigge weighing up the option of shipping him out on loan, too.
"We'll decide when we've completed our shopping whether to keep him here or loan him out for a year. He really needs playing minutes after the last half-year, which was unsatisfactory for both sides."

Following the several new additions, could Bayern continue recruiting ahead of defending the league title?
Well, Rummenigge will keep 'all options open' during the summer transfer window.
"We will keep all options open until the last day and we will continue to keep an eye on what is going on and discuss options internally."
"We will also look at what is happening in the squad, like in 2014 when Javi Martinez's injury meant we had to act," he continues to add.
