Bayern Munich have submitted their Champions League squad list. Per


  1. Manuel Neuer
  2. Sven Ulreich


  1. Dayot Upamecano
  2. Matthijs de Ligt
  3. Benjamin Pavard
  4. Bouna Sarr
  5. Lucas Hernández
  6. Noussair Mazraoui
  7. Josip Stanišić (club-trained)
  8. Alphonso Davies (club-trained)


  1. Joshua Kimmich
  2. Leon Goretzka
  3. Marcel Sabitzer
  4. Ryan Gravenberch

Attacking midfield / Forwards

  1. Sadio Mané
  2. Serge Gnabry
  3. Kingsley Coman
  4. Thomas Müller (club-trained)
  5. Mathys Tel
  6. Jamal Musiala (club-trained)
  7. Leroy Sané
  8. Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting
  9. Paul Wanner (club-trained)

It’s twenty-three players in all, from a maximum of twenty-five. A key figure for registration purposes is the number of club-trained (came up as a youth player through the club) players — there’s a requirement for eight home-grown squad members on the list, towards which only four who are merely association-trained (came up as a youth player in the Bundesliga) can be counted. If the club miss the mark, they are deducted one available spot.

Bayern don’t have a shortage of the latter — Neuer, Goretzka, Kimmich, Gnabry, Choupo-Moting, Sané all qualify as association-trained — but might be running light on club-trained status players. They’d lost David Alaba to Real Madrid, sold Tanguy Nianzou (who would have qualified by next year) to Sevilla this transfer window, and have placed Malik Tillman on loan at Rangers FC. Müller himself is also closer to the end of a storied career (not that soon, though! — may it never happen), while Stanišić is not firmly established.

On the other hand, they’ve brought in a player in Mathys Tel who should end up qualifying if he sticks around — as he’ll have had over three years under his belt at Bayern by the time he turns 21. And with youth players like Paul Wanner making the list, it’s an early preview of those that might comprise Bayern’s next generation of home-grown stars.
