Options in the Number 10 role
Capable of playing on either wing or just behind the lone striker as well as a number eight, Musiala may very well be the catalyst to Bayern’s attack with Kane being the main source of goals. With the versatility of his game and some similarity to Tottenham’s Son Heung-min, Musiala may form a very good part partnership with Kane.
Musiala’s gangly frame coupled with his quick feet when dribbling, more often than not, results in defenders guessing incorrectly where he’s going as he glides around and in between them like an eel. Add to that his passing and shooting with either foot and what is presented is a strong case for him to be deployed just behind Tottenham’s all-time leading goal scorer.
With regard to an alternative for the number ten role, Tuchel has to look no further than club icon Thomas Muller. The 2010 World Cup Golden Boot Winner is vastly experienced having played in every position across the front line during his illustrious career, and is still an important figure at the club both on the field and in the locker room.

There was a time when Muller was an automatic selection behind the main striker, and indeed it would be interesting to see if the Raumdeuter could create, with Kane, a winning combination similar to the one he once shared with Kane’s predecessor, the talismanic Robert Lewandowski. However, with Muller arguably in the twilight of his Bayern career, now may be the right time to introduce the world to the duo of Harry and Bambi (Musiala) as the Bavarian team, once again, sets off on a quest for trophies on multiple fronts.
