Bayern Munich could offload midfield youngsters

Bayern Munich's midfield is really crowded at the moment. Among all players, Sebastian Rode and Pierre Højbjerg can be selected out to put on the team's out list, be it a transfer or a loan move.

While Rode never holds any significant role in Bayern's tactic, the German youngster always plays decently and confidently whenever Pep Guardiola gives him a chance. With this advantage, chances are that Pierre Højbjerg will be the one leaving Bayern.

In fact, Pierre Højbjerg was already loaned out last season to Augsburg. However, it turned out to be a terrible mistake for Bayern, as the injury storm ravaged the team at the end of the season and put them into serious trouble.

However, with Arturo Vidal's arrival this season, Højbjerg's possible departure will no longer create a similar aftereffect. The problem is, Bayern want to loan out the Danish talent, while teams interested in him are only looking for a permanent move.

With Xabi Alonso's contract running out at the end of this season, to loan or sell Pierre Højbjerg will be a tough puzzle for Bayern to look into now.

Similar to Højbjerg, the future of several other youngsters are also unstable. Hot prospects like Gianluca Gaudino, Joshua Kimmich can either play for the team's reserve squad or look elsewhere to play first-team football, in hope of honing their skills and build up enough experience to make Bayern's starting line-up in the future.

In other news, central defender Dante may be the only one who feels safe at Allianz Arena. The Brazilian defender, together with Medhi Benatia and Jerome Boateng; are Bayern's only central defenders.

With Benatia's out due to his injury, and Jerome Boateng suspended next match against Bayer Leverkusen, Dante is the only central defender remains intact. Thus, it comes as no surprise to see Dante staying at Allianz Arena, at least until the winter transfer market.
