Bayern have retained fourth place in the Deloitte Football Money League, the financial services firm’s annual ranking of the highest-earning clubs in the world’s most popular sport. In the 16th edition of the ranking covering the 2011/12 season, FCB are credited with revenues of €368. 4 million and are the only German club to make the top ten. The list is headed by Real Madrid with record-breaking revenues of €512. 6 million

Once Pep joins, you bet a few new players will be hauled in. And you can also be sure they are players who play in Spain now. Who would you guys like to see? Take into account their pricetag, their potential greatness for Pep's Bayern and everything else.

Personally, I don't think Bayern should change too much because the identity of the current successful team can't get lost. With players like Javi Martínez, Alaba, Lahm, Schweinsteiger, Kroos, Shaqiri and of course Ribéry, you already have players that will suit Pep just fine. But I do think a few types are missing.

* Isco: the attacking midfielder with great skill and vision, who could be the Iniesta of Bayern. He would only cost a measly €9m because that's his release clause, and I am certain he wouldn't demand wages in excess of those of someone like Kroos, who is a very different kind of AM.

* Adriano: I hope you won't chase him, but if Pep would like, I'm sure he could purchase Barcelona's Adriano, who has been superb this season so far. He's arguably the most versatile player in the world, able to own the left and right wings, able to play as a DM and even a CD, or as an attacking winger. He's perfectly ambidextrous, fast, has good technique and learned a lot at Barça in terms of tactics and team play. He'd be the perfect player if Alaba or Lahm would be injured, or perhaps even as a starter. He would probably cost around €15m.

Weird wildcard:
* Torres: yes, yes, it sounds weird and silly, but a 28-year old who used to be a world class striker can return to his best form if treated right and used right. His wages might not be high because this could be his last chance of returning to a world class level. The chance to be coached by Guardiola and play for a team like Bayern would be great for him too. I think he'd come cheaply if bought late in the summer because Chelsea will almost certainly buy Falcao or another top striker in the beginning of the summer, leaving Torres redundant. I can imagine Guardiola bringing Torres back to his best in a short time, if he has the right assistance. He'll need to work on his physique and pace again and most of all he'll need the confidence he once had back. Which can only come back with the confidence of your coach who uses you exactly right

It is true that what Torres needs is a good manager, but at this point it really isn't worth the risk. Adriano and Isco are both good suggestions, although Adriano would probably hesitate to go to a club where (again) he'll be the no. 3 winger
TKroos (Bayern München) 3 years ago
Lol Torres? If Chelsea would give him for free, I would still say no
Bennylein1706 (Bayern München) 3 years ago
I really don't see many players from Spain we should buy.

Inigo Martinez (Real Sociedad) would be nice but we already have Kirchhoff from Mainz

The problem to get spanish players will be Guardiola. The clubs will demand higher prices only beacause Pep and Bayern are asking. I think we will try to get Jung and Rode from Frankfurt. Perhaps we need one striker if Pizarro doesn't extend the contract. But there will be no Suarez, Torres, David Villa etc.... Perhaps Szalai or the back coming Petersen

If Bayern gets Neymar, I'll buy that jersey first !
GoonSquad (Arsenal) 3 years ago
Bayern is perhaps the only team I would love to see Neymar join. Barca has Messi, Real has Ronaldo (for how much longer, we do not know) and Neymar should join a different, top flight club. Keep the balance intact. If Ronaldo joins PSG, then perhaps Neymar would restore the equilibrium if he joined Real, but I would much rather see him with Die Bayern.
One can only hope
Muellerinho (Bayern München) 3 years ago
He should join Arsenal...
Robbery69 (Bayern München) 3 years ago
As good as a player as he is, he is not a player that would fit in at Bayern atleast in my opinion
Bennylein1706 (Bayern München) 3 years ago
I think we shouldn't compare a young brazilian who has never played in europe with Messi and Ronaldo. We all have to wait until he can become the chosen one to balance the football world
Chanman (Bayern München) 3 years ago
No
[account-removed] 3 years ago
Robbery, Recall everybody thought Messi was physically unfit?    Given enough time, Neymar will kick ass too
Robbery69 (Bayern München) 3 years ago
I guess that's true, bayern were offered messi but thought the hormone treatment was too risky (and probably too expensive/not worthwhile)

But he just seems liek the type of [C.] ronaldo and I could never see someone like that at bayern
Aufgehtsbayern (Bayern München) 3 years ago
I don't wanna see neymar in bayern jersey he's a diver and a primadonna
Georgio (Bayern München) 3 years ago
I know we have an insanely good squad already.... But.... With a budget of 280Mil.... Who would you buy?
Fabiusmaximus (Bayern München) 3 years ago
Honestly, I don't know exactly where we could strengthen our squad as there is enough depth in every part of it.
But lets just pretend it isn't so.
I'd buy Falcao and Isco.
- Falcao: what do you have to say about this guy. Just a beast.
- Isco: he would be a perfect match to Kroos for the position as CAM. Skillful, amazing vision and a great shot. Still young and very cheap
Alirezafcb (Bayern München) 3 years ago
I think the only thing that were missing is an extraordinary player, super creative, and tricky.... , these kinda players would help us out to come up with new ideas when the teams struggling to find a way through

I would def buy Neymar, I know most of us here don't like these kinda players with big ego and whatever but we turn these players to a team player.... Look at robben he was prolly the most selfish footballer when he came to bayern.... And look at him now

Neymar would be ideal to play the role of messi at bayern.... He's still super young and has plenty room for development, after all there is a reason that pep wants to bring him at bayern,

Other then that. We don't need any more players.... we have to invest on our youth academy, and we have been doing this for so long
Teutonicbayern (Bayern München) 3 years ago
I would want Falcao or Suarez and maybe a replacement for ribery like neymar but that is all. I would like our young guys to turn into beasts
Aufgehtsbayern (Bayern München) 3 years ago
Hummels

About the author:

"An Arsenal supporter, a football fanatic and a sports enthusiast in general !"

Valdes Cavani Götze Dzeko.... €278m budget.... Who is this idiot?

This doesn't seem like the Bayern way
Fabiusmaximus (Bayern München) 3 years ago
Ah come on you really don't believe in this, do you guys?
Everyone could have written this, no reliable sources mentioned.... its just an author looking for attention.

Our board always acts very cautious and conservative and picks players who actually fit to their understanding of Bayern Munich. What has that to do with these things mentioned in the arcticle.... As if they would give up their whole philosophy and get to a man city like club who blows his money out of the window just because of the new manager....come on guys, seriously. They would betray themselves
Fabiusmaximus (Bayern München) 3 years ago
In addition to that.... Why the f**k would we like to buy Valdes and both cavani and dzeko?!

Schweinsteiger (Bayern München) 3 years ago
"And Brazilian youngster Neymar is a top target on Bayern Munich’s transfer wish list. "

I stopped reading and called BS after I saw that
Bennylein1706 (Bayern München) 3 years ago
I think that is the budget for the complete club and costs of the stadium. Neeeever eeever.... We will spend so much. There is no reason to do that. Our squad is great already. 27. 8 are realistic
Robbery69 (Bayern München) 3 years ago
If it is 278 then spend it all on that one player and you know who ^^

La pulga and then tell gomez/mand/pizz they can be greenkeepr or somin

But it sounds mainly like bs
Alirezafcb (Bayern München) 3 years ago
Based on our history we know that bayern likes to be rich.... And wouldnt splash out stupid money, our club has a sporting director unlike EPL clubs, he's in charge of transfer market and based on our philosophy that is highly unlikely, on the other hand clubs in Germany develop their german youth rather than buyin other nations talent...
Steveex (Borussia Dortmund) 3 years ago
Hahaha never heard so much bullshit. The author has obviously never followed Bayern Munich. It isn't how Uli rolls.
From all teams in the world, I guess Bayern Munich is the only one to actually have such ressources without falling in debth, however, BS BS BS BS
Unless Messi misses Pep so much I think that would be the only reason to spend so much. Well not even then....

I heard Pep is really fond of Hummels though, he wanted him when still in Barcelona, I hope that wish is gone. Not like you need him anyways, right?
Bennylein1706 (Bayern München) 3 years ago
I think Head & Shoulders Mats will stay yellow/black
SKool (Arsenal) 3 years ago
All that money just to sign messi. Lol

Alirezafcb (Bayern München) 3 years ago
Dissapointing first half.... Nothin there
Fabiusmaximus (Bayern München) 3 years ago
What a great vision from molinaro.... Stunning pass for mandzukic
Anubhz (Bayern München) 3 years ago
Mandzuuuu
Muellerinho (Bayern München) 3 years ago
Same as Nürnberg @dortmund.... They don't want to lose by 4-5 goals, quit playing at 1:0/2:0.... Not cool, boring game...

PaddySpurs4Life (Tottenham Hotspur) 3 years ago
Just thought I'd go to the only active Bundesliga page and ask what you guys think of Lewis Holtby?
I'm asking about his role as a playmaker primarily....
Any help would be great
Fabiusmaximus (Bayern München) 3 years ago
Lewis Holtby is a great talent, great playmaker and its no surprise that he lately made his first appearance for the German national team. He has been amazing for Schalke at the beginning of this season though his form decreased a bit in november/december. His first appearance this year was great anyway. I think he can also develop great leader qualities, he showed them as captain from the German U21.

Gotta' say that the dortmund page is also really active
PaddySpurs4Life (Tottenham Hotspur) 3 years ago
Cheers lad! I see he's got same amount of goals and assists as Ribery! Is Ribery off-form?
Crxxx (Bayern München) 3 years ago
Off form? Hardly.... Great scoring points so far but some qualities are hard to be captured in stats
Robbery69 (Bayern München) 3 years ago
Lol they paid 1. 75 mio. For holtby.... Gotta' be shitting me if a talent with the skills of holtby was english hed cost 20 mio...
Robbery69 (Bayern München) 3 years ago
Ribery is prob playing some of the best football of his career, his importance to usis to be seen on the same level as messi is to barca and ronaldo to real, alot of what he does can't be seen in stats as crxxx already said
Muellerinho (Bayern München) 3 years ago
I would say 1, 75 mio for a player who is in the last 6 month of his contract isn´t very cheap...
PaddySpurs4Life (Tottenham Hotspur) 3 years ago
I would say that its extremely cheap Muellerinho! This is a guy that is evidently worth a lot more than 1. 75 and If we gets us champions League football then he'll more than pay for himself! Plus he'll have time to get used to the team for next season (which is when he'll shine imo)...
MarkoPollo (Borussia Dortmund) 3 years ago
His contract was running out by the summer and he had already signed a contract with Tottenham. It's either leave on the free in six months or get any kind of money now. Surprised to see Tottenham pay an extra 2 mio for 6 months
Robbery69 (Bayern München) 3 years ago
I guess that's true, that's just schalke being retarded not extending his contract earlier...
PaddySpurs4Life (Tottenham Hotspur) 3 years ago
Its £1. 25mill which for someone who can help us get champions league football is a bargain!
