Bayern Munich's Starting XI Against Lyon Cost Just £90 Million

Bayern Munich's starting XI against Lyon only cost £90 million - that's just £10 million more than what Manchester United paid for Harry Maguire.

Since the Champions League restart, Bayern have destroyed Chelsea, Barcelona and Lyon as they play Paris Saint-Germain in the final on Sunday.

And the two Champions League finalists operate in completely different ways.

In PSG, you have a money-backed giant who have splashed serious amounts of money to land Neymar (£198 million) and Kylian Mbappe (£131 million).

But the Germans are far more efficient in the transfer market having spent just a little over £90 million to assemble their starting XI against Lyon on Wednesday.

The Bundesliga champions paid the most for Manuel Neuer who cost £27 million back in 2011, while goal machine Robert Lewandowski didn't cost a penny.

They also made shrewd business choices in signing Canadian phenom Alphonso Davies for just £9 million not to mention the £7.5 million they paid to buy Serge Gnabry.

For more context, Barcelona forked out £120 million to sign Philippe Coutinho who scored against them in the quarter-finals. Ouch.
