RB Leipzig

Would RB Leipzig be missing out if they don’t sell Naby Keita to Liverpool for £70m?

Reports have suggested that RB Leipzig have already rejected two colossal bids in the region of £65m from Liverpool for midfielder Naby Keita. The Guinean international has been Jurgen Klopp's number one transfer target of the summer, but Leipzig have remained adamant in their stance that they're not going to sell the midfielder, whatever the price is Liverpool are willing to pay.
Thomas Muller

Bayern Munich’s Thomas Muller is in desperate need of a strong season

Thomas Muller had a disappointing 2016/2017 campaign with Bayern Munich; there's simply no disguising it. The German international tallied eight goals and fifteen assists across all competitions for Bayern last year en route to their fifth consecutive Bundesliga title. On the surface, his scoring record in the 2016/2017 campaign by no means reads a lackluster season, but it was most certainly one of the poorest seasons Muller's had in a Bayern shirt.
Mario Götze

Mario Götze faces an uphill battle with Borussia Dortmund this season

Mario Gotze missed the majority of Borussia Dortmund's 2016-2017 season due to being diagnosed with a metabolic disorder known as myopathy; a disease that causes complications in skeletal muscle tissues. It can result in muscular weaknesses and make it quite difficult to maintain and/or gain strength in the effected muscles. The German international only featured 16 times across all competitions and only registered two goals and two assists; numbers well under par in comparison to his three title-winning seasons with Bayern Munich, and his first three seasons in his first stint with Dortmund, for that matter.
Naby Keita

Naby Keita/Van Dijk narratives highlight resiliency of Jurgen Klopp

Naby Keita has been linked with a move to Liverpool for what now feels like an eternity. The RB Leipzig midfielder has arguably been the number one transfer target of the summer for Jurgen Klopp alongside Southampton's Virgil van Dijk. Efforts on both of those fronts have taken a number of setbacks, but developments over the past week and half have suggested that both moves could wind up happening.
Timo Werner

Timo Werner underlines the strength and depth of Germany’s youth

At only 21 years of age, Timo Werner of RB Leipzig and the German National Team has burst onto the scene over the past twelve months. The Leipzig striker was one of Germany's standout players at the FIFA Confederations Cup, scoring three goals in four matches en route to lifting the title, as well as the golden boot award; Lars Stindl and Leon Goretzka also tallied three goals in the tournament, but Werner registered more assists in addition to his three goals. Joachim Low brought a predominantly young squad to the tournament in Russia that consisted primarily of players 23 years old or younger, as the majority of Germany's first teamers are still on holiday from their respective clubs.
Naby Keita

Naby Keita for £70m?: It’s now or never for Liverpool

Naby Keita of RB Leipzig has been heavily linked with a potential move to Liverpool this summer and the latest reports are suggesting that Leipzig want close to £70m for him.  They will not accept anything less as they don't want the midfielder to leave.  Liverpool are prepared to try and reach an agreement with Leipzig for the Guinean international despite Die Roten Bullen's grave reluctance to sell him.  The Reds have already broken their transfer record in signing Mohamed Salah from AS Roma for around £36.9m, which would mean that signing Keita, assuming the fee is around the valuated £70m, would crush the record by around £34m
Ousmane Dembele

Ousmane Dembele deservedly receives Bundesliga’s ‘rookie of the year’ award

Ousmane Dembele of Borussia Dortmund was named the Bundesliga's rookie of the year for the 2016/2017 campaign on Wednesday (June 21st) as voted by the fans.  The 20-year old made quite the impact in his first season with Dortmund, scoring ten goals and providing eighteen assists across all competitions, helping his side to a third place finish and the DFB-Pokal (German Cup) title. 
RB Leipzig

UEFA clearance will help RB Leipzig retain their best talents this summer

UEFA announced earlier today (Tuesday, June 20th) that both RB Leipzig and Red Bull Salzburg can compete in the Champions League next season after speculations had risen because of the fact that both clubs are sponsored by the Red Bull energy drink company. Both clubs rightfully qualified for the competition in their respective leagues; Leipzig finished second in the Bundesliga and Salzburg won the Austrian Bundesliga title. The Red Bull sponsorship of the two clubs prompted an investigation from UEFA's Club Financial Control Body, but neither club are in breach of the competitions rules and regulations because of the fact that Red Bull does not have a controlling stake of Salzburg anymore - it's just a sponsor (BBC Sport).
Thomas Tuchel

Thomas Tuchel unlucky to have lost Borussia Dortmund job

Thomas Tuchel has parted ways with Borussia Dortmund just three short days after clinching the DFB Pokal trophy with a 2-1 win over Eintracht Frankfurt at the Olympiastadion in Berlin. The decision was officially announced after a meeting between Tuchel, CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke, sporting director Michael Zorc, and Tuchel's advisor, Olaf Meinking took place. Watzke and Zorc were both in agreement that Tuchel had not lived up to the expectations that were set forth back when he took over as Dortmund manager in the summer of 2015 after Jurgen Klopp had left.
