While most fans thought it would be hard to replace Bayern Munich stars, many could refer to it as the end of an era when Arjen Robben and the likes of Ribery left the squad. Fortunately, the future Bayern Munich’s squad already looks like a formidable force for any opponent in the Bundesliga.
Arguably, Bayern Munich is the best team in Europe at the moment. They have already qualified for the Champions League’s quarter-finals this season [2020/2021] after eliminating Lazio in what seemed like an easy task to them. They are joined by Chelsea, Real Madrid, PSG, Porto, Dortmund, Liverpool, and Man City.
In August 2020, they thrashed PSG in the Champions League finals to lift the coveted trophy. Surprisingly, they will be facing PSG in the quarter-finals this season if they are to advance into the semi-finals.
Many fans have tipped Bayern to defend the title this season owing to their spectacular performance. Some of their main players are almost past their prime years; hence many may think the team will fade once some of their star players leave. On the contrary, the management is working behind the scenes on an overhaul, keeping in mind that complacency could collapse.
The same mistake happened in 2013 when they conquered on all fronts, but their form quickly dipped, and they had to build the team once again to become the formidable force it is today. Fortunately, Bayern seems to have learned from their past mistakes, inspiring confidence for anyone enjoying soccer betting online through Betway.
Most of their players have more than 1000 club appearances meaning they will exit the club sooner or later. The club has taken the right steps to ensure that no voids get left once some of its legends leave. As such, soccer punters wagering on Bayern at Betway will be delighted to know that Bayern’s squad won’t be any weaker, even after the departure of most of their legends.
Here are some of the measures they have put into place:
Assembling of a future backline
To ensure their wage bill structure stays balanced in the best way possible, the club has terminated contract negotiations with David Alaba, who demanded a hefty salary to extend his stay at the club beyond the current season. Alaba’s contract is expected to expire at the end of this season.
Another defensive player set to leave is the 32 years old, Jerome Boateng. The third defensive player to leave will be the 32years old, Javi Martinez after the expiring of his contract.
Bayern has moved in swiftly to integrate youngsters such as Lucas Hernadez, Niklas Sule, who will be tasked with replacing the departing stars. Another player who will get a chance to impress will be Tanguy Nianzou, who joined Bayern from PSG last summer. Dayot Upamecano is expected to join Bayern from Leipzig after they triggered his buy-out clause. Bayern has been signing youngsters to fill the voids that will be left and ensure a smooth transition in the team.
Life after Lewandoski
Most admit that Lewandoski is their talisman. Now that he is no longer getting younger, the club has extended the upcoming youngster Jamal Musiala. He is tipped to be a star soon and is in line to replace Lewandoski, leaving no void.
Bayern has other youngsters such as Gnabry, who has been in fine form lately, and Leroy Sane is regarded as the long-term replacement for Frank Ribery. With the smooth transition at Bayern Munich, you can expect them to dominate Europe for years to come.
