If there is any one position on the Bayern Munich roster where there is a heightened sense of drama, there is no doubt that is lies between the sticks.
The negotiations for Manuel Neuer’s potential contract extension have been a roller coaster ride of emotions for fans of the legendary keeper, while Sven Ulreich has made no bones about welcoming a competition with incoming Schalke 04 goalkeeper Alexander Nübel to possibly back-up Neuer.
And that is just the first-team drama.
The organizational depth in goal for Bayern Munich is sort of absurd. If you dismiss that extremely strong “top three” for 2020-2021 in Neuer, Ulreich, and Nübel, you can then venture down to Bayern Munich II, which features prized youngsters Christian Früchtl and Ron-Thorben Hoffmann.
