Diego Carlos was bought by Sevilla for €15M just one year ago. However, in the past season, his stock has risen considerably.

Rangers wonderkid to leave for Bayern or ManCity? (Daily Record)

Kai Kennedy is an 18-year-old Rangers starlet who predominantly plays in the AM position. The youngster boasts incredible talent which has caught the eye of some of Europe’s biggest teams — namely Bayern and Manchester City. With only one year left on his contract, Kennedy could easily move on a free transfer to one of those teams. At Bayern, he would add to Liam Morrison & co. as a Scot in the youth ranks.

Why Lionel Messi should leave Barcelona for Bayern (BFW)

Lionel Messi is undoubtedly one of the greatest players ever to play the beautiful game. The one-club man has dazzled at Barcelona for over a decade and is still among the world’s best. However, with the Catalans’ poor financial and sporting success in the past few years, rumours persist that the Argentine is fed up and could look to leave the Camp Nou in the near future — a nou challenge, if you will. Therefore, we at BFW wrote a wonderful article, detailing three reasons Messi should abandon Spain for Germany and Bayern. It would be good to see him at the best FCB...

Pep Guardiola is sure Thiago would succeed in the Premier League (goal)

When Pep Guardiola first arrived at Bayern Munich, he told the bosses that he wanted “Thiago oder nichts.” And, seven years on, the Man City manager’s admiration for his compatriot is still strikingly apparent.

When asked about Thiago’s future in Bavaria, Pep stated that he “doesn’t know what he’s (Thiago) going to do”. Yet, if a move to the PL materialises, Pep is sure Thiago would fit right in. This is because he’s an “exceptional player” and because “a player who plays for Barcelona and Bayern can play in the premier league”.

Andre Shürrle retires at 29 (Der Spiegel via BBC)

Even though he had a few extra years left in the tank, Andre Schürrle has called it quits and decided to retire at the age of just 29. The World Cup winner, who assisted Mario Götze’s game-winning goal in the WC final, made it clear that “the decision matured in me for a long time.”

Furthermore, the German had become disenchanted with the game — which was becoming less and less rewarding and increasingly lonely for him. He said, “The depths became deeper and the highlights less and less”.

All of us at BFW wish you all the best in your future endeavors, Andre!
