    I suspect he wants to start, but Dortmund doesn’t owe him anything. He added nothing aside from goals, which is why he often didn’t start. The team could use a second CF. Which team that has aspirations to win trophies has one striker at the club and that striker can’t hold the ball up or win headers?

    Haller will go to West Ham ( prob for 40m)

    Sky reports Sane to Bayern is off the table.

    Lewandowski extended until 2023.

    Borussia Dortmund extended the contract with Puma. it's worth 300m over the next 10 years. Nice extra money.

    I read speculations that Rebic and Trapp also might be on the way out. They already lost Jovic and Haller. Not much left if no very good players come in.

    Speculation? Trapp is back to PSG training for weeks now.

    Trapp is linked with Porto! PSG has no use of him.

    As of now, they have use of him because they only have Areola. In any case, there's few chance he goes back to Germany right now.

    The original plan was to buy or loan him (again) from PSG. Anyway, he will not return to Frankfurt. Either he plays for Paris or (maybe) Porto.

    My point is that Frankfurt lost 3 of their 4 best players and Rebic may be next. As of now their roster is bad. They finished 7th last year.

    Last year they had a good squad, but even if they get no one that'll still be a solid mid-table team on paper. Of course if Rebic goes too they do need to make acquisitions already because they're running out of forwards.

    What Trapp will do we shall see, maybe he does go to Porto, but Rønnow is a Danish international so it's not the worst of situations even if they don't get a replacement. And in Joveljić they got a promising youngster up front that could well be the next big thing. Kostić they get to keep for a very low price.

    According to this report Frankfurt wants to bring back Trapp, Rode and Hinteregger. They also want to do "surprising" tranfers.

    I'm not sure that Boateng is such a surprise at this point, but he was good last time around.

    Bild reports Uli will step down as president of Bayern in November. If true it's the end of an era.
    It will be interesting to see who will succed him. Kahn will succed Kalle. Maybe Lahm?

    Lookman goes to Leipzig. Last year his price would have been 25m, now he goes for 18m. Good transfer, both sides know each other.

    So 2. Bundesliga starts today. Hannover 96 at VfB Stuttgart.

    Am I confident for my team this season? No! But many Stuttgart supporters aren't either.

    Favourites (according to coaches) are HSV, Stuttgart, Nürnberg, Hannover and Bielefeld.

    I don't think so. as usual one two surprises will happen.

    Nice win by Dortmund vs. Bayern, Sancho was the man of the match. Still early, but BvB should have a good team this year. And the new players (exc. Schulz) didn't even play.

    It's mostly a meaningless match as all these Super Cup matches in all countries are. It's not going to get Dortmund any points towards the league standings, but what this match does is send a message to Bayern that last season was not a fluke, and Bayern are going to have to be better than last season if they want to win the league.

    And at the moment they are significantly worse, could be a season with 0 titles coming up.

    Schalke are meanwhile struggling to get rid of Tönnies after his bigoted comments, if they do it could be the major restart the club desperately needs. And a few tiers below Chemnitz finally got rid of their captain who turned out to be a Neonazi.

    And not to forget Dortmund's Norbert Dickel and Patrick Owomoyela who did a radio report from the Udinese game. While Nobby insulted italian players Owo imitáted Hitler's voice. We know Nobby is not the brightest candle on the cake I thought Owo was smarter.
