Hi guys,

I'm at the beginning of my 2nd Season with Borussia Dortmund. [July 2014]
I just received an non-negotiable offer from FC Bayern Munich for Robert Lewandowski.
His current value is €45.5M and he was very successful in the last season.
Scored 29 times in the league, 8 assists, 8 times PoM and 7.54 Average Rating.
His current stats are:

The transfer offer is the following:

So what do you think? Should i sell?
As replacements i currently have Matej Vydra, Timo Werner and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang on my squad. Should I buy someone else as a better replacement?
I can upload screenshots of Vydra/Werner/Auba Attributes if needed/wanted.

Thanks in advance

Sell and develop Werner, turns into an absolute beast!

But that is my opinion, so you should get others first!
Sell him and Sign Volland if possible.

Hoffenheim want around €35-40M for Volland, is that worth?

Timo Werner - 2023, aged 26

Kevin Volland - 2023, aged 30

Werner is just hitting the heights of his career aged 26, and has already scored 101, league goals for Bayern. Whereas Volland's scoring record isn't as good.

Hope this helps!
Thanks for your advice.
Seems like I'll definitly develop Werner.

Someone told me to sign Michy Batshuayi as a replacement. I could get him for around €4-5M.
What do you think of him?
Batshuayi is a goal scoring monster, sign him up for that price! Him and Werner will develop really well
Batshuayi also turns into a beast. Pick him up, and develop the two. Maybe go 4-4-2 and have Werner a Treq and Batshuayi as a Poacher, and see how it goes
Big thanks to both of you!!!!
Bayern Munich now wants a decision and I'm gonna let Lewy go.
Gonna sign Batshuayi and spent some of the money of the Lewy-Deal into a new goalkeeper.
Preferably Courtois, but I think it's gonna be ter Stegen, since Courtois isn't interested at the moment and I don't know any way to change his mid in such a short time.
No problem mate, I hope I helped, I would love to know how you get on :)

Yeah you helped me alot!
I'll give you an update how things are going on later. :)
I'm halfway through the season.
Playing mainly 4-2-3-1 tactics, because my other tactic with 2 strikers isn't really good yet.
It's some kind of 4-2-2-2 with wingers and 2 strikers. I managed to beat Barcelona in Champions League once with this tactic, but hilariously failed against some smaller clubs using it.

So playing with 1 striker most of the time, I decided to let Timo Werner play much more often than Batshuayi. He is developing really well and scores alot.

However Lewandowski had some trouble at Bayern Munich first, which made a little happy. :D
But now he is in beast mode again, scored 11 Goals in the last 5 league games for Bayern.
Good, good, I am glad it paid off! I would love to know what the end of the season is like!
So, season is over.
I finished top spot in the Bundesliga.
I lost in DFB-Pokal semi-finale against Bayern Munich 2-3 after extra time.
I won the first leg against Chelsea in Champions League Qtr Finale 3-2 but had a devastating loss in the second leg ... 1-7 :(

Timo Werner played an amazing season and became Bundesliga top scorer, but I decided to play a 4-2-3-1 formation so I loaned out Batshuayi to SC Freiburg, who finished in the 6th spot and Batshuayi played pretty well for them, he also scored against my team. :P
