Haaland’s already drawing in suitors (Transfer Market Web)

RB Salzburg striker and Norway youth international Erling Haaland marveled us all with a hat-trick during his Champions League debut this week, so it is not a surprise to see Arsenal, Manchester United, FC Barcelona...and Borussia Dortmund all keeping tabs on the phenom:

Coming from a hat-trick CL debut, Norwegian striker Erling Haaland (19), hailing from Red Bull Salzburg, has been targeted by both Arsenal and Manchester United, according to latest UK reports. The 2000-born is an item of interest for FC Barcelona and Borussia Dortmund as well.

It’s very early in his career, but Haaland looks like he really could be a special player. RB Salzburg also looks to be a burgeoning talent factory and American coach Jesse Marsch is in a terrific spot at the helm.

Looking for some weekly Bundesliga predictions? I’ve got you covered (The Barrel)

If you are looking to kill some time this morning and want a brief preview on each Bundesliga match (along with some predictions that will most likely go up in flames quickly), I’ve got you covered here.

More Messi to Inter...Miami rumors (Transfer Market Web)

Lionel Messi’s father has reportedly met with David Beckham about his son’s potential move to MLS expansion club Inter Miami:

According to latest UK reports, Jorge Messi, father of Barcelona FC superstar Lionel Messi, has just met Inter Miami execs, in order to discuss a move of his son to MLS brand-new franchise. After having turned 32, 5-times Ballon d’Or winner is allowed to resign from his ongoing Blaugrana agreement, and might go for a whole new venture.

I’m still having some issues envisioning Messi making the trek to Chester, PA to play the Philadelphia Union, but I guess stranger things have happened.

Martinez takes the Bayern Challenge (@FCBayernEN)

Javi Martinez finally got some game action this week against Red Star and it was all probably all to prepare for the Bayern Challenge:

These are all pretty good, but do you agree or have others in mind?

Final Flex? Not likely (@cfbayern)

Sport Bild’s Christian Falk kept us entertained all summer with his flex-ing of all rumors far and wide. Sure, there were a couple Twitter scraps with other journalists involved, but nothing too salacious.

It was a fun, oer-arching theme to the summer for the Daily Schmankerl.

Falk Master Flex, however, dusted off his flex-ing prowess and provided a final flex to officially shut Bayern Munich’s pursuit Callum Hudson-Odoi the Falk down.
