You only have to perform a quick search engine request to see how Bayern Munich's star players have developed physically over the last few years.

Indeed, as they continue to dominate the Bundesliga and, the season before last, Europe as well, the likes of Leon Goretzka and Poland striker Robert Lewandowski have cut colossal figures and that's been to the benefit of the Bundesliga giants.

Of course, the onus on that is not merely restricted to the Allianz Arena, as underlined by the clear transformation Manchester United player James Garner has undergone this summer.

But will he eventually be joined at Old Trafford by the Germany midfielder?

As speculation over the future of Paul Pogba continues to mount — amid reports he has turned down a £50million contract extension — United are claimed to have 'formalised' their interest in Goretzka, who is himself preparing to enter the final 12 months of his Bayern deal.

In the mould of Garner, though, the Premier League club may already have their own mini Goretzka.

Jadon Sancho is in the bag but what about the latest on Raphael Varane, Kieran Trippier, Declan Rice and Eduardo Camavinga?

The 20-year-old, who has already made a handful of appearances for the senior team, spent last season on loan in the Championship with two-time European champions Nottingham Forest.

Now he is preparing to try and stake a claim for more regular involvement under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer this term, the gym work he's put in this summer has not gone unnoticed.

@xzfrsyfd said: "Not sure if he's ready, but why not give him a chance next season instead of looking for a DM in the market?"

@jackiechan7277 posted: "He could be a long-term option for when we use a pivot and, if he keeps on bulking up and works on his defending, then he could be moulded into a lone DM, too."

@ABaxter_92 added: "He's really been banging gym like that."
