I think he played regularly as a CB in his last season with Bilbao.I'm not sure.

Regarding Goretzka and our midfield for next year... whenever I find myself thinking if we might be overpacked in any position I always come to the same conclusion

- We are talking about Bayern. Most of our squad is injury prone, we are definitely going to miss key players all along the season.


I see no place for Renato and either Vidal or Tolisso might have to leave as well. But apart from that we will be fine. We've just signed a hell of a player on a free transfer =D>

How much would have ManU paid for Leon Goretzka if he were playing in the PL for some random Southampton/Everton team?
I agree that Goretzka is great catch for free and also that our squad is very injury prone. But my point is that we don't really need depth *in CM*. If we had an injury plague and 3 CMs were out, we would still have 3/6 of Thiago, Vidal, Renato, Rudy, Tolisso and Goretzka for a single position. OTOH, if Javi injures, we have no other pure DM. If James injures, we have no other creative player. If Coman injures, we only have a mediocre Gnabry and a done Ribéry for LW.

Again, we have 4-6 CMs, but 1 DM, 1 real creative attacker with vision and 1 acceptable LW. Our squad is unbalanced and our transfers keep unbalancing it further.

That being said, i'd be fine if we bring Goretzka and get rid of Vidal, Renato and Tolisso, but bring in a DM and a source of final-third creativity (Meyer, Forsberg, maybe Brandt, someone like that).

Of course I'm not counting Goretzka to be the one and only transfer for the summer.

But adding him for cheap means we can still spend some money on another big name. Probably a winger =P~

And that's great. We are so much more injury prone than other top teams that we do need that little bit of extra depth. Having depth is necessary in general. Over here, having one or two extra players on top of the normal amount is a good idea.

It will be a problem, however, if - like previous years - we are satisfied because we got hold of a good midfielder/defender and end up ignoring the positions we really need transfers in (wingers and strikers).

I can understand selling Vidal while we can still get money. I think another year on loan for Sanches to reach a final verdict on him would also be smart. But SELLING Tolisso? That is just plain crazy talk. :lol: Very happy about Goretzka, now we just need Dele Alli and a winger. We'll have a team for the next 5 years and also my FIFA career mode team haha

I don't think Spurs will be selling Alli. Because Kane is a clear target for Real Madrid if they do it they lose half of their creativity on the pitch which as a rich and CL contender club they will avoid to do so.

Can't see tweet? Click here!

Heynckes on Goretzka:You have to wait and see. If I read correctly, his agent said they haven't decided yet, and the Spaniards are still in the race. We will see.He's a very good young player. I like him.

Imagine Jupp is staying one more season (at least) and actually this is what convinced Goretzka. That would be amazing!
