Bayern Munich Player Profiles
His country's No. 2, who cost Bayern £2m from Karlsruhe in what is still a record fee for a German goalkeeper.
Could well have signed for Liverpool earlier in the season, but negotiations broke down over length of contract. May be used to mark Yorke or Cole, although the player sees himself as a sweeper. A Bayern player for seven years, he has played for a variety of German sides, including Borussia Dortmund.
In his second spell with Bayern, recruited by Beckenbauer in 1995. Played in the German side that won Euro 96 in England.
Recently established in the German squad, this player has adapted to a number of roles in the Bayern side, notably at left wing-back or central midfield. Was signed from Karlsruhe as a replacement for Christian Ziege.
Made an impression on the world stage for Germany during Euro 96, and subsequently joined Bayern from Werder Bremen. Scores a high amount of goals from the right side of midfield and can be dangerous from free-kicks.
Central midfielder also acquired from Karlsruhe. Despite Turkish origins, he too is a regular member of the German national side.
Outstanding midfielder who has not played for his country since the USA World Cup in 1994. This is his second spell with Bayern, having played for Borussia Monchengladbach in between. Certain to give United problems with his running from midfield.
In his first season with the club, this midfielder has proved a vital addition to a side which is clearly aging.
His goals were instrumental in Bayern's start to the Champions League, but a serious injury will keep the brilliant Brazilian out of the final.
Bosnian striker who scored at Old Trafford when the two teams met before Christmas and has been in good form recently.
A tall, fast striker with a remarkable scoring instinct, signed from Rapid Vienna and has scored some crucial goals for the side, particularly during this year's Champions League.
