Bayern Munich’s playmaker Joshua Kimmich offers a glimmer of hope.

The midfield solution for Bayern Munich

Joshua Kimmich and Leon Goretzka were once the go-to players for both the club and the nation.

However, that Bayern Munich is considering a number of other players for the position. Both players are now facing criticism for their roles and recent performances.

The Bayern Munich duo put forth a solid effort in the 2-0 win over Hertha Berlin. Kimmich excelled while producing 11 chances overall, two assists, and two assists. He gave a strong performance and did well in the playmaking No. 6 position. Which he had been avoiding for the majority of the season.

He also made 109 out of 119 passes for a 92% passing success rate. If he commits to the role, the German international can develop into that kind of player.

Goretzka, meanwhile, started despite being sidelined with an injury. His day was cut short when he was replaced at halftime in a decision that likely had more to do with his injury than with his play. Goretzka was average, completing 22 of 28 passes (78%), but he also made two tackles and prevailed in two of his four ground battles.

There is hope, but does Thomas Tuchel believe that pair will continue to be successful together?

That is at best ambiguous and at worst improbable. The midfield will be manned by Konrad Laimer and Marcel Sabitzer for Bayern Munich next season in addition to Ryan Gravenberch. Ryan has been agitating for a transfer away from the club.

Sabitzer is rumored to be up for sale this summer. But there have been numerous reports that Bayern Munich is considering alternatives to strengthen the position. The Bavarians have also been linked to Chelsea’s Kovai, Manchester United’s Casemiro, and attacking midfielder Mason Mount.

The outcome of this situation will be decided in the coming months. But riding Goretzka and Kimmich for another season might not be the worst choice.
