Who are you most looking forward to watching next season?

If there is one thing that Bayern Munich offers its fans, it is a lot of hope for next season — especially when it comes to the quality of players on the squad.

For this category, we are seeking to find out who most people are looking forward to seeing next season. Could Robert Lewandowski chase breaking his own Bundesliga goal scoring record? Are some folks eager to see how Jamal Musiala develops? Or...are other folks eager to see how Dayot Upamecano acclimates to Bavaria?

Those are just three options, but there are a lot more. Here are the players our staff is looking forward to watching next season:

Chuck Smith

  • Leon Goretzka: More than any player, Goretzka has made “the leap” over the past two seasons. Once an after-thought in the Bayern Munich midfield, Goretzka seems poised to continue his rapid ascent and become an even more dominant presence...and I can’t wait to see it.

  • Jamal Musiala: Julian Nagelsmann is renowned for working with young talent, and Musiala is one of the brightest youngsters we’ve had in the Bundesliga for some time now. He’s only 18 and there’s a ton of room for him to grow, both literally and figuratively. If handled right, he could even eclipse some of his more experienced compatriots.

  • Omar Richards: Many a fantastic right-back/left back has taken the pitch for Bayern down the years — Joshua Kimmich, Philipp Lahm, David Alaba, Bixente Lizarazu, Holger Badstuber (more center-back than left-back), Benjamin Pavard and Alphonso Davies are some of the recent ones, some more legendary than the others of course. Richards can play as a left-back; I am not sure if he will be used there but I really do wonder what his signing is all about. I wonder if he will flourish like Davies; I wonder if we will have to wait a season to see him spring into action. I wonder whether being at a club with a rich history of left and right-backs will lead to Richards becoming one himself down the line.

  • Lucas Hernandez: One of the world’s best CBs on his day, the Frenchman just didn’t get enough opportunities to impress us on a consistent basis. He was constantly benched in favour of Alaba, which is a decision that confuses me to this day. However, moving forward, I’m super excited to see him potentially emerge as the defensive leader Bayern needs and show the world why Bayern paid 80m for his services. He has it in him; he just needs more starts to show us what he’s got. And I have a very good feeling about next season.

  • Serge Gnabry: The past season never really saw the real Serge Gnabry. Kingsley Coman was the star winger in Munich for most of the season. Coming off the high of a treble win, alleged personal issues to deal with and a congested schedule could have contributed to Gnabry’s lengthy dip in form.

A fresh season with a full pre-season period, coupled with the arrival of Julian Nagelsmann is the perfect opportunity for Serge to bounce back. His goal contribution and lethality in the box were particularly missed in the quarter final against PSG. Having played under Nagelsmann previously and hungry to make a comeback, Gnabry is certainly one of the most exciting players to watch for in the new season.

Jack Laushway

  • Lucas Hernandez: This past year Lucas finally showed glimpses of what is to come for the French defender. He was both exceptional and consistent, however, didn’t get enough time on the pitch to really get into full flight.

Next season this is sure to change. We all know that Nagelsmann needs to revitalize this defense, and no doubt, Hernandez will be a major part of that plan. He has all the potential to become Bayern’s next great leader of the backline. I am very excited to see him deliver some more world-class performances.
