How Wolfsburg lost Kevin De Bruyne to Man City

espnfc.com — The most drawn-out saga of the summer might soon be over. Local paper Wolfsburger Allgemeine Zeitung reported on Wednesday night that Kevin De Bruyne will be sold to Manchester City for €74 million, plus add-ons worth another €6m.

Bayern set to kick off Bundesliga by adding to Hamburg’s comedy of errors

theguardian.com — The Bundesliga traditionally starts with the champions taking on another top team at home on Friday night.

It must be a practical joke of some sort.

Pep Guardiola battling perception at Bayern Munich

espnfc.com — Football managers think in terms of problems, solutions and results. You might get the odd philosophical musings and talk of "visions" thrown in for a bit of added mystique but, with the possible exception of Johan Cruyff, who has been able to convince half the world that his beautiful Netherlands were the "real" winners of the 1974 World Cup, even the most dogmatic of coaches are only employing tactics as a means to an end.

Bastian Schweinsteiger's future at Bayern to be settled soon

espnfc.com — It's not easy being Bastian Schweinsteiger these days: everywhere he turns, he receives unsolicited advice. The latest football expert to offer his opinion on the Germany captain's club future is Felix Magath. The former Bayern Munich coach said in his column for ran.de on Wednesday that Schweinsteiger should move to Manchester United to "develop his personality" and find "a different environment and new impulse" ahead of Euro 2016.

Borussia Dortmund

espnfc.com — There's a widely held perception that the Bundesliga's appeal has been severely diminished by Bayern Munich's dominance over the past three years. One newspaper, who fundamentally misunderstood the minimal impact of financial Fair Play rules on a division that neither wants nor allows club takeovers by rich owners, even went as far as blaming UEFA president Michel Platini on the "ruination" of the league.
