Bayern Munich announced the signing of Senegal striker Sadio Mane from Liverpool for a fee of around £35m. Mane will wear jersey number 17 at Munich. In addition, Ajax duo Ryan Gravenberch and Noussair Mazraoui have also been confirmed as Bayern Munich players.
Meanwhile, key defender Niklas Sule will join rivals Borussia Dortmund as a free agent after the expiry of his contract with Bayern. Robert Lewandowski is also on the list of possible departures from the club.
Now after these effective changes, let's see how coach Julian Nagelsmann could possibly set up his starting line up next season;
In the goal post, we could still see Germany short stopper Manuel Neuer. The current Bayern Munich captain is regarded as one of the best goalkeepers in the world as he's expected to start in the post.
Mazraoui, Upamecano, Hernandez and Alphonso
The center back could pair French star Dayot Upamecano alongside teammate Lukas Hernandez who will be a replacement for Sule when the later will join Dortmund. On the full backs, we could have Noussair Mazraoui on the right back and Alphonso Davies on the left back.
Kimmich, Goretzka and Muller
The defensive midfield section could have a partnership between Leon Goretzka and Joshua Kimmich as the duo were outstanding last season. Meanwhile, Thomas Muller could retain his attacking midfielder role at position 10.
Coman, Sane and Mane
On the left wing could be French winger Kingsley Coman. On the right wing, Leroy Sane could start as Sadio Mane completes an attacking trio as the center forward.
The possible 4-2-3-1 line up and formation looks like the one below:
