He's also perfect for in Juventus. They have alot of high work rate players in the midfield allowing him to sit back and act like a deep playmaker/maestro.
We shouldn't judge him against Bayern though. They are an amazing team and have the deepest squad in the world by far. Their backup squad can form a team that can make the final 8 in the CL.. Can't say that about the other teams in the world.
