Will Bayern Munich keep Benjamin Pavard or Leon Goretzka?

Could a pair of long-tenured Bayern players stick around together?

How much are Bayern Munich going to turn over their squad heading into the 2023/24 season? Change has been in the air in Bavaria and with a new manager in town plus a sporting director vacancy, almost every aspect of the roster has been speculated about.

We saw what club president Herbert Hainer thought about it, but could both players still find a long-term future with the Rekordmeister? With all the commotion that may occur around them, it may be a coup for the club to secure their services for at least one more season. But it’s a question of wills, too.

Goretzka’s place in the starting midfield pivot next to Joshua Kimmich could come under threat if the club retain their 4-2-3-1 shape, especially given a high-profile pursuit of a new number six in the summer transfer window. Pavard, meanwhile, has seemed on the fence about his Bayern future for some time. If either, or both stay — and Bayern land their various transfer targets — they and the club might not be happy with the outcome and the distribution of playing time.

What do you think will happen...
