Naglesmann intends on using Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City side as a reference for his Bayern, seeing as the Premier League champions lacked a pure number nine last season.
If Lewandowski does leave for Catalonia one name being mentioned as a possible replacement is Liverpool’s Sadio Mane.
The Senegalese is not a pure nine but is capable of leading the line. Also in the picture as a plan B is Stuttgart’s Sasa Kalajdzic.
Bayern won the Bundesliga in Naglesmann’s first season in charge but fell short, crucially, in the Champions League. La Liga outfit Villarreal knocked them out in the quarter-final.
