Why Bayern Munich need two strikers this summer

Bayern Munich sealed their 11th consecutive Bundesliga title following their 2-1 win at Cologne on the final day of the season. 

The Bavarians also won the German Super Cup, but their overall performances were far from convincing. 

Thomas Tuchel’s side went out of the Champions League in the quarter-finals after a 4-1 aggregate defeat against Manchester City. 

They would also have missed out on the league crown if Borussia Dortmund hadn’t slipped up against Mainz.   

Bayern will now be looking to bolster their ranks in the summer transfer window to improve their performances next season. 

They lost Robert Lewandowski to Barcelona last summer but have failed to truly replace the Poland international who scored an incredible 344 goals to be second in the club’s all-time scoring charts

The German giants brought in Sadio Mane from Liverpool last summer, and he scored 12 goals in an injury-plagued season to be among Bayern’s top scorers

However, he is not an out-and-out centre-forward, so they must add a new world-class striker this summer. 

But even that may not be enough, with Thomas Muller reportedly contemplating his future in Bavaria. 

According to a Bild report last month, the 33-year-old could leave this summer due to his lack of game time under Tuchel.
