Per Transfermarkt, the latest market values for Bayern Munich players have been released. Take a look at the list below and see what you think. We provided our commentary under each player:

  • Joshua Kimmich: €90.00 million

BFW: This seems about right. Kimmich is Bayern Munich’s most well-rounded player and should be its most valuable given his performance, position, and age.

  • Alphonso Davies: €75.00 million

BFW: Young, talented, and with a world of potential, I’d think his value will continue to soar in the coming years and as the global economy improves.

  • Leon Goretzka: €70.00 million

BFW: Well, look who it is...only the midfielder many weren’t sure could cut it at Bayern Munich. Hopefully the Bavarians get a new deal done with Goretzka before some deep-pocketed clubs arrive with mega-offers.

  • Serge Gnabry: €70.00 million

BFW: This looks to be about right for Gnabry, though I’d expect it to continue to trend upward a little more.

  • Leroy Sané: €70.00 million

BFW: This seems about right for Sané at this stage.

  • Kingsley Coman: €65.00 million

BFW: I’d expect Coman to fetch more in a normal, non COVID-19 year...this could be light even with the specter of the coronavirus looming over football.

  • Robert Lewandowski: €60.00 million

BFW: There is no monetary way to measure his value, but at his age, €60 million would be a good haul for Lewandowski.

  • David Alaba: €55.00 million

BFW: Honestly, 55 million feels a little light for a versatile, skilled defender. Not that it matters since he’s leaving on a free transfer anyway.

  • Lucas Hernández: €45.00 million

BFW: Ah, the COVID-19 effect hits hard here. Worth 80 million just two years ago (well, at least that is what Bayern Munich paid for him), Hernandez has seen his value almost cut in half. Injuries and a lack of consistent playing time will do that. Still, we should expect this to sky rocket up once Hernandez starts to get field time.

  • Niklas Süle: €37.00 million

BFW: This also feels a bit light, even during COVID-19 times.

  • Thomas Müller: €35.00 million

BFW: Yeah, that’s about right for a player at his age and in his position — who is also criminally undervalued worldwide.

  • Benjamin Pavard: €35.00 million

BFW: This seems about right. I like Pavard, but it seems as he’s generally not regarded as anything too special from a global standpoint.

  • Jamal Musiala: €24.00 million

BFW: This seems like a case where his potential value is about twice as much as his actual value.

  • Corentin Tolisso: €20.00 million

BFW: Yeah...I don’t think the French midfielder can bring back much more than this given his track record of serious injuries and inability to win a spot in Munich.

  • Manuel Neuer: €18.00 million

BFW: Even at his age, this seems low. I mean...if you were a Champions League contender and a stud goalkeeper was your missing link to a title, you’d probably pay €30 million for Neuer, right?.

  • Douglas Costa: €12.00 million

BFW: If I was a club seeking an aging wing, who has not been consistent for years, I would not pay anything over €6 to €8 million for Costa.

  • Marc Roca: €12.00 million

BFW: Bayern Munich paid €9 million for Roca last summer, so he’s gotten more valuable by playing a lot less? Not bad business, I guess.

  • Tanguy Nianzou: €11.00 million

BFW: Until we see more (okay...see something), this number seems fair just based on what we’ve told about his potential.

  • Jerome Boateng: €10.00 million

BFW: Another Bayern Munich player who will likely leave on a free transfer, I would have thought Boateng would be in the €15 million to €18 million range.

  • Javi Martínez: €6.50 million

BFW: Martinez will be leaving Bayern Munich on a free transfer, but that number above is likely about as high as any other club would have paid for him during the COVID-19 Era.

  • Alexander Nübel: €6.50 million

BFW: For a player who is supposed to be Germany’s next great goalkeeper, this feels too low.

  • Bouna Sarr: €5.50 million

BFW: Bayern Munich just paid €8 million for Sarr last summer and 5.5 million still feels too high.

  • Tiago Dantas: €4.00 million

BFW: Until this kid shows something, €4 million is too much.

  • Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting: €3.50 million

BFW: Yeah...that’s about right.

  • Bright Arrey-Mbi: €1.00 million

BFW: At this stage, the figure is fair.

  • Ron-Thorben Hoffmann: €600,000

BFW: Hoffmann would be a steal for someone at €600,000. Definitely worth a flier to a team in need of a goalkeeping prospect.
