Bayern wrapped up their sixth Bundesliga title in a row despite slow start at the beginning of the season.
The German giants have a habit of signing the best players from the Bundesliga and that strategy has helped them maintain their dominance in the country.
Back in January, Bayern agreed a deal to sign Schalke midfielder, Leon Goretzka, on a free transfer. The 23-year-old star will be completing his move on 1st July. The question is, how will the German champions line up with Goretzka next season?
Leon Goretzka is able to play the Vidal role, as well as a box-to-box midfielder, which means should Vidal stay, they can play together in the same system.
The number of clubs that were linked with Goretzka was no surprise, as the Germany international is one of the best prospects in Germany at the moment.
His potential has always been evident since bursting on the scene at Veltins-Arena, but it’s only over the last couple of campaigns where Goretzka has found some crucial consistency.
He’s been at the hub of Schalke’s excellent form this term.
He’s a man for all occasions. Goretzka is multifaceted, able to use his technical quality to control matches, his combativeness to break lines and his football intelligence to find smart positions on the pitch.
Here is how Bayern could line-up with Leon Goretzka:
Manuel Neuer is the undisputed number one at the club and will continue to be as long as the best goalkeeper in the world is healthy.
No matter who takes over at Bayern at the end of the season, Bayern are most certainly going to continue with the 4-2-3-1 formation. We believe Bayern defence will consist of Kimmich and Alaba on the flanks, and Hummels and Boateng will form the duo in central defence.
Franck Ribery and Kingsley Coman will be the wingers. Thiago and Goretkza will form the double pivot, James Rodriguez will be the man behind Robert Lewandowski.
Robert Lewandowski is the perfect number nine. He’s among the best there is, and he’s more involved in the game. He plays to his strengths very cleverly, and he’s got better with the ball.
