Bayern Munich has spent a fair amount of time investing in its youth ranks over the past three seasons and some of those talents on Säbener Straße are being recognized.

The Guardian published its list titled “Next Generation 2020: 60 of the best young talents in world football” and Jamal Musiala, Thorben Rhein, and Liam Morrison were all featured.

Musiala, a midfielder who is playing some wing with Bayern Munich’s team, has made quite an impression in Bavaria so far, while Morrison, a center-back and Rhein, an offensive-minded midfielder, are both with the FC Bayern U-19 squad.

Musiala is currently in the throws of a courtship by the DFB to move from England to Germany for international play, while Morrison (Scotland) and Rhein (Germany) are both featuring for youth teams in their respective countries.
