Knowing Bayern Munich and the sort of astonishing quality and talent they have in their squad, only a few people would think that they can not win the UEFA Champions League title this season. But of course, it would take more than just their talent and squad quality for them to be able to be crowned the Champions of Europe but their former player, Arjen Robben, has revealed that the German Bundesliga giants have more than enough of everything that they need to clinch the prestigious title again this season. Chelsea are the current holders of the Champions League title and even though not a lot of people would have tipped them to win the trophy some months ago, they had the right mentality to conquer Europe.

Bayern Munich already have some fierce squad depth and despite having at least two quality players for every position in the squad, they still went ahead to do more transfer businesses this summer. After already announcing firmer RB Leipzig manager Julian Nagelsmann in the summer following the departure of their former boss Hansi Flick, the Bavarians have since completed the signing of two players from Leipzig as well.

ROBBEN TIPS DEPAY TO SHINE AT BARCELONA THIS SEASON

Barcelona finally signed Memphis Depay as a free agent after several weeks of being locked in negotiations with the star forward. The Spanish La Liga giants, managed by Ronald Koeman, placed signing the former Manchester United winger as one of their priorities this summer and their fans have also expressed their excitement following the confirmation of his signing and unveiling. Depay finished last season as a Lyon player but he refused to sign a new contract extension as he insisted that he wanted to move to the next step in his career and signing for a club of Barcelona’s status was the perfect move he could not reject.

Depay was not Barcelona’s only signing this summer as the Catalan giants also completed a deal for Sergio Agüero after the striker ran out of his contract at Manchester City and was not offered a new contract. However, while Agüero is more of a short-term signing, Depay, a younger player, is seen as one that can represent the Blaugrana for a couple of years to come.

The trend of former and veteran players commending and lauding the stars of the current generation has continued to soar and while the praise has been spreading across to a lot of players, they have been well-deserved.
