This is not true. Any team looking to dominate games need midfielders of very high class. Bayern, City, Madrid (who are not even a possession team per se usually) all have them.
Bayern had both Kimich and Thiago when they won last CL. City are stacked in creating midfielders department, with De Bruyne, Bernardo, Gundogan, even Rodri. Madrid have Modric and Kroos who are still going strong. Even United have a much better passer than us in Bruno Fernandes.
Never thought I'd see this comment from Harry Kane.
“When I was young, and still now, I love Sergio Busquets' game. He is an incredible player because of how he plays, how he orients his body to play and I take his example to act sometimes in that position or similar. I know that he is now in Miami but I have appreciated him a lot and he has always been in the shadow of other teammates like Messi, Neymar, Xavi or Iniesta. He is one of the greatest midfielders in history."
