The German is arguably the most versatile name on the list, as he is equally comfortable playing in a slightly deeper position just behind the striker. He has accomplished everything at Bayern Munich – where he also boasts an impressive strike rate in front of goal – and is also a World Cup winner. His goalscoring at international level is equally as strong, and leaves him well on course to overtake Miroslav Klose as the World Cup’s all-time leading goalscorer. With all he has already accomplished, he may decide he is ready for a new challenge before his best years are behind him.
The Daily Star have suggested that Manchester United are ready to offer £60m for the 25-year-old, as Louis van Gaal attempts to bolster his options. While it may be difficult to tear him away from the Allianz Arena, he may be tempted after the Premier League side closed in on a deal for his long-time teammate Bastian Schweinsteiger (via BBC Sport).
