FC Bayern is one of the top clubs in Europe, whose youth development has been somewhat overlooked, but nevertheless, over the last 10 years they have made constant improvements to their organisation, which has brought up world class players such as Phillip Lahm, Thomas Müller, and Bastian Schweinsteiger and many other rising stars, who have risen through the junior ranks to domestic, European, and World Champion glory.
Take a look at the five rising stars of the team who may be set for career-defining seasons.
Signed by Bayern during the summer for €35million, Renato Sanches plays primarily as a central midfielder, but can operate in slightly deeper or more advanced roles, as well as on the right. He has a playing style similar to Paul Pogba. Renato’s talent, dedication and physical development have got him to this point but he must keep that gap between himself and his peers intact.
He is the young, rising star who already looks destined for greatness. In no time at all, he’s become general of the team; simply could not be ignored any longer.
