Bundesliga: Top Heavy

Via Transfermarket

The graphic represents the most expensive 11 players in the Bundesliga, with their market value in millions of Euros at the top of the player card.

Notice a trend? All 11 players play for Bayern Munich or Borussia Dortmund, with 9 playing for the former (10 if you count the soon to be transferring Mario Gotze). Not even Barcelona, Real Madrid, or PSG can make that claim in their respective leagues.

As evidenced by their 4-0 demolition of Barcelona in the UEFA Champions League, Bayern Munich is making the most of their money.

Is this kind of financial dominance bad for the competitive balance in the Bundesliga? Or, is it worth it to have a super team that can represent the league and country so well on an international level?
