05 Dec Football Manager 2019 Bayern Munich: Team guide, building blocks, best young players & who to sell
Football Manager 2019 Bayern Munich – The Bavaria are the only team on FM19 with a transfer budget in excess of £100m.
That alone makes them an attractive proposition, but when you dig a little deeper, you’ll notice that that money actually needs to spend on reinforcements.
Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery are both set to leave the club within a year on a free transfer, the defence is ageing and outside of Robert Lewandowski, the club don’t have a prolific goalscorer waiting in the wings. Fancy the task of trying to replicate the treble-winning side of 2012-13?
PlugsvilleSport has put together this ultimate FM19 guide for you. We have listed Juventus’ starting finances, two key players to build around, two of the best young players and the players you should consider selling if you need to raise funds.

Transfer Budget = £103m

Building Blocks – Football Manager 2019 Bayern Munich
Robert Lewandowski (ST)
This one’s a given but considering the transfer rumours linking him with a move to Real Madrid in recent seasons, it’s no certainty that Lewandowski will happily stay in Munich, so you need to surround him with the right talent to give him every reason to stay.
Poland’s all-time top scorer is top-five at his position in world football at the start of any game save on FM19. The only thing working against him is he’s approaching the wrong side of 30, but should still reign supreme as you build your dynasty.
Best Attributes – Balance (20), Natural Fitness (19), Stamina (18), Decisions (18), First Touch (18)
David Alaba (DL/WBL/CM)
Alaba might be the very best left back in FM19. Above all, he is a reliable performer, good for a solid 7.0 match rating on most weekends at the very least.
The Austrian international is best deployed as an attacking full-back, allowing him to utilise his crossing, set-piece and penalty taking talents to full effect.
Best Attributes – Natural Fitness (19), Stamina (18), Teamwork (18), Work Rate (17), Determination (17)
Best Young Players – Football Manager 2019 Bayern
Renato Sanches (DM/CM)
From best young player on a European Championship winning side to Swansea outcast. Life came at Renato Sanches fast after his £35m switch from Benfica to Bavaria, but in FM19, he is equipped to become a dynamic box-to-box midfielder.
Best Attributes – Determination (18), Work Rate (18), Balance (18), Natural Fitness (17), Stamina (17),
Oliver Batista Meier (AMR/AML)
The 17-year-old German youngster is one of few highly-rated starlets to grace Bayern’s academy. He is some way away from the first team but is a player worth developing through your loan system at the very least.
Best Attributes – Flair (17), Technique (16), Dribbling (15), Free Kick Taking (14), Vision (14)
