Du schaust: James rodriguez fc bayern münchen

miyvue.com picks out three ready-made alternatives...

Watch:The james Rodriguez miyvue.com Mixtape!

Thomas Müller

Thomas müller doesn"t oase James" wand von a left foot, yet he doesn"t require it. Ns self-titled Raumdeuter ist conceivably ns most distinct entity an world football - brilliant with the ball, even much better without it.

He scored and assisted much more goals 보다 James in the Colombian"s time punkt Bayern, albeit having played 18 miyvue.com games more, and has die chameleon-like ability kommen sie adapt zu all manner von systems, comfortable as he is either on die right-hand side von the assault or through middle.

But above all, it"s what he does when he"s notfall taking or making chances that eventually puts er top des the disseminate order.

Whereas a much more classic No.10 favor James is measured top top his ende product bei the last third, müller brings a list des intangibles to die role - composure, tactical sensitivity and spatial awareness - the leave opposition players stupefied und teammates and coaches an awe.

The truth he nudged james out des the next during die latter part von 2018/19 lends load to ns theory, and he carries the quite amazing record von never having actually lost a miyvue.com game bei which he has found the back of die net (110 goals throughout 87 of his 318 league appearances!).

Who better to play off ns shoulder of Robert Lewandowski?

Serge Gnabry

Not nur Müller, apparently! Serge Gnabry has barrelled his way into the bayerisch starting line-up an his zuerst season at the club, creating 10 goals an 30 miyvue.com outings.

In 2018/19, only Lewandowski scored more than Arsenal"s One That gott Away, who also ranked an impressive fifth an terms of assists (five), behind Joshua Kimmich (13), müller (nine), Lewy (seven) und Thiago Alcantara (six).

The former VfB Stuttgart academy graduate is being groomed as die natural permanent heir to Arjen robben on the right wing, but he can also operate an ext centrally, nur as James kann sein alternate betwee causing havoc out wide and pulling the strings native a more central position.

Of Gnabry"s 21 miyvue.com goals an season-long stints v Werder Bremen und Hoffenheim prior zu 2018/19, 13 fell in games in which he began either in attacking midfield, as a 2nd striker or centre-forward.

The same goes for eight von his ripe pre-Bayern miyvue.com assists. It"s deshalb a function increasingly favoured by Germany trainer Joachim Löw, dafür it"s notfall like Gnabry wollen need a few games to dust turn off his strings if bayerisch tactician Niko Kovac ever before feels die need kommen sie push er inside.

Plan A (Gnabry ns wide man) ist deadly enough, however Plan b (Gnabry die middle man) is bei equally dreadful proposition.

Alphonso Davies

As well together Müller und Gnabry, Thiago Alcantara und Leon Goretzka are viable alternatives bei James" preferred No.10 role, while ns emergence des Canadian teenager Alphonso Davies ensures his secondary position on ns left flank zu sein well accounting for.

Unlike James, the 18-year-old is a winger by trade and, as sachen are shaping up, will be one des only three natural left footers in Bayern"s first-team squad next season, along with david Alaba and inbound 2018 FIFA welt Cup-winning defender Lucas Hernandez.

Davies shares bei artistic originality with James, but his raw pace und gazelle-like forward operation make ihm a far an ext rounded fit bei the broad areas.

He"s glücklich on both flanks, und has the skill-set to thrive more centrally - should ns need or want ever before arise.
