Football Manager 2022 has arrived, giving you the chance to step into the manager's hot seat and begin your new rollercoaster career.

Dominating Germany hasn't been difficult for Bayern Munich in recent years, but they've yet to be mentioned in the same breath as titans such as Real Madrid, Barcelona, Manchester United and Liverpool.

In this guide, we'll show you how you can conquer the world in Football Manager 2022 with Bayern Munich.

Club Vision

You won't be surprised to hear that expectations are high at Bayern Munich, with a league title, a domestic cup and a good run in the Champions League all expected by the board.

You will be expected to play an entertaining and attacking style of football, following in the footsteps of Pep Guardiola to continue the era of Bavaria dominance.

You will also be tasked with maintaining the era of dominance by signing players under the age of 23 that are ready to compete in the first team, as well as keeping your sight high and attempting to attract high profile players.


Bayern Munich are known for their high intensity attacking football and we suggest you keep it traditional and deploy a gegenpressing system at the home of the German champions.

Playing a positive 4-3-3 DM Wide system, you'll utilise a brilliantly offensive midfield, progressing the ball to the three forward who will guarantee you goals.

Your defence could use some tweaking in the transfer market, but we believe this system could easily see your Bayern Munich side become one of the most dangerous in the world.

Bayern Munich is home to a number of talented superstars, with many of their players adored by fans across the world.

The three players that we have picked are superstars that can perform wonders in the present, as well as helping you sustain that dominance for many years to come.

Whilst the Polish dominator is certain to score many, many goals for the next few years, he's also the perfect candidate to mentor your next goalscoring superstar.

There's no doubting that Leroy Sane is one of the most exciting wingers in Football Manager 2022, and you can be certain this left foot is about to create many chances for your Polish goalscoring machine.

Not afraid to drive at goal and create havoc in the offensive half, Sane is the perfect man to be flying down the wings in this year's game.

Young Prospects

As well as boasting a number of talented stars, Bayern Munich also have a talented group of youngsters rising through their ranks in Football Manager 2022.

With many of these players categorised as some of the best wonderkids in this year's game, you won't even have to work hard to see them reach their full potential.

One of the best wonderkids in Football Manager 2022, Jamal Musiala is a young German star that could easily reach the very top of the mountain.

Once on the books at Chelsea, this former England youth international is set for a breakthrough year at Bayern, can you help him reach his full potential?

Tanguy Nianzou

A dominant centre back with the potential to become a world-beater, Tanguy Nianzou can also play as a rock-solid defensive midfielder.

With the French wonderkid also set for a breakthrough season, you'll do well to give Nianzou his first start before another European giant swoops in.


Bayern Munich have a very small squad in this year's game, which is always good when you look at the financial status of the German champions.

With a small squad comes few options to sell, but there are still a couple of players that could do with moving on.

Who to Sell

Eric Choupo-Moting has had one of the strangest careers in world football, with the Cameroonian jumping between Stoke, Paris and Bayern Munich.

However, we think it's time to move the 32-year-old on, along with other high earners Bouna Sarr and Josip Stasinic.

Selling these three would likely only earn you around £5 million pounds, but it will be worth it once you clear some of the wages and reduce the average age of your first team squad.

Who to Sign

When you consider the tight budget restrictions and the demands of the board, there's only really one major signing that you can make in Football Manager 2022 with Bayern Munich.

You could spend your £25-30 million budget on wonderkids - which isn't the worst idea - but we would also recommend you take a look at Noussair Mazraoui to improve your right back position.

With the Ajax star costing roughly £22 million, it's a low investment purchase that falls in line with your board demands and could lead to major rewards in the future.

Continue to Dominate

The future is bright at Bayern Munich, but there will also be contenders ready to knock you off your throne.

You'll have to fight on all fronts to earn the right to dominate, but we believe the German giants are set for further success in years to come.
