    Even though Bayern Munich appears first on the list, they do have an upcoming problem.

    League Position:           1st Position
    Variance:                       +232 mil.Euro
    Average Age:                 27.2
    Football Club Barca deserve the first place, however due to the transfer variance and the average players age, they’ve found themselves on the second position.
    Barca recently bought Coutinho, he appears to be a good transfer for them, since he fits with their style of game.
    However, they should reconsider strengthening the team with new young players, since Messi and Suarez for example aren’t getting any younger.

  3. SSC Napoli

    Napoli have a very good transfer policy, they should focus on renewing their goalkeeping positions, as well as the defensive line-up.

    Atletico de Madrid under Diego Simeone rose from the ashes, they’ve rise to a whole new level compared to the era before Diego Simeone.

    Juventus might have the oldest average players age, but this shouldn’t trouble them a lot, since they do have a back-up of a young player on almost every position, except for the central defensive positions, which soon might become a problem for them.

    Real Madrid are a great team, but they must think of a replacement of Cristiano Ronaldo or at least a talented player that can be a good prospect for the future. A replacement for Benzema is a must since he is under-achieving for quite some time.

  10. Tottenham

    Average Age:                  26.4
    Tottenham are a great team at the moment, their attack is one of the most lethal in all competitions, however they do have only Harry Kane as classic striker. If they lose him due to injury or transfer to another club, this will be a huge blow for them.

  11. Inter

    Chelsea have a team made to achieve great things. They should however improve the debt of their striking positions, yes, Giroud is here now. However, there should be another third striker as an available option for the team.
