It was clear that the Germany midfield of Toni Kroos and İlkay Gündoğan struggled at times against France. Kroos had moments where he was very good, however, while Gündoğan was “off” for just about the entirety of the match.
Here is to hoping Bayern Munich’s Leon Goretzka is back at full strength soon:
Per Germany manager Joachim Löw (as captured by Sky Sports), Goretzka status as a starter for Portugal is still up in the air.
“He will certainly be an option on Saturday, whether already for the starting eleven, you have to wait and see,” said Löw.
Bayern Munich winger Kingsley Coman wants to be paid like Leroy Sane or he wants to go to the Premier League:
Kingsley Coman’s desire to play in the Premier League is one of the main factors in his recent decision to reject a new contract offer from Bayern Munich.
Sky in Germany report that the France international winger is becoming increasingly unsettled at Bayern, where he has asked for a significant pay rise and feels underappreciated.
Former Bayern Munich midfielder Sebastian Rudy has terminated his deal with the now-relegated Schalke 04. Rudy, of course, has spent the last two seasons on loan with Hoffenheim:

Wolfsburg was able to get a deal done with Max Philipp to keep him with the club through 2025. Philipp had a solid stint with the Wolves last season:

He is officially moving from @fcdynamo to #VfLWolfsburg on a contract that will keep him in the Green & White until 2️⃣0️⃣2️⃣5️⃣!
Former Bayern Munich and FC Barcelona midfielder Arturo Vidal could see himself playing in Mexico or in the United States at some point in the future:
“I’m waiting to see what will happen. I have never hidden my desire to play in Mexico or America. I hope that one day I will have the chance, with the approval of the clubs and mutual interest”.
The contract that binds the Chilean to Inter is not indifferent: 6 million for next season with an option on the next. La Gazzetta dello Sport also reports the interest in Europe for the midfielder shown by Trabzonspor and, at the window of the transfer market, Marseille and their coach Sampaoli also appeared.

Laura Donhauser is leaving Bayern Munich for FC Köln, signing a contract through 2023. She won the German Championship with Bayern’s U-17s, the 2.Frauen Bundesliga with Bayern II, and the Frauen Bundesliga with Bayern. That’s an incredible run for a 19 year old.
“FC are a great club, and I am really looking forward to the new experiences and my future team-mates,” Donhauser said. “I want to develop myself further at FC and do my bit to make sure we reach our team goals and stay in the Bundesliga.”
Donhauser was apart of the of the Germany squads that finished runners-up at the European Championships for the U-17s and U-19s.
