Bayern Munich's transfer committee sat down with Pep Guardiola this week to suggest potential successors to both Franck Ribery and Arjen Robben.
It is looking increasingly likely that Robben, 31, and Ribery, 32, will be unable to play the 50+ games a year that Bayern Munich usually require of their stars.
Both wingers have struggled with injuries in the past two seasons and their ageing bones are growing more unreliable with every passing day.

German newspaper Bild claims that the process of signing at least one new world-class winger is already underway with the bigwigs of Bavaria meeting to discuss transfer targets.
It is claimed that the general focus of the meeting surrounded Rennes forward Paul-Georges Ntep, who had a half-decent season with the Ligue 1 outfit and is considered a short-term option for Bayern Munich.

Another name that was brought up–the reason you clicked on this article, of course–was that of Theo Walcott.
The Arsenal star has just 12 months left on his contract with the Gunners and, while the club are confident an extension worth £100,000-a-week will be agreed, the fact that a deal is yet to be announced has attracted attention.
Walcott, 26, is in a position where he could quite easily agitate his way out of the Emirates if a club like Bayern Munich were to offer him an attractive deal.
Considering his talent, Arsenal would be forced to sell for a price well below his market value if Bayern could convince him that life at the Allianz Arena is far greener.
Guardiola saw a much younger version of Walcott tear his Barcelona side apart during a Champions League tie against the Gunners back in 2010 and later praised the winger.
He told reporters: “He could not even be stopped by a gun. Walcott can do the 100 metres in 10.37 seconds. That is incredible for a footballer and any defender would struggle against him.”
However, the Spaniard has seemingly been left unimpressed with Walcott's progress since then and immediately vetoed the prospect of bidding for the England international.
Unsurprisingly, Guardiola has set his sights on Manchester United's struggling star Angel di Maria instead.
Could you ever see Theo Walcott playing for Bayern Munich?
