Bayern still adding a mystery player? (Christian Falk via @iMiaSanMia)

Will there be a little end of the transfer window intrigue for Bayern Munich? It looks like it, per Sport Bild’s Christian Falk.

Falk says that the Bavarians are still discussing one more player, but did not name exactly who it was. Based on what we know, I guess we can cross these two names off the list:

  • Jonas Hofmann
  • Matthias Ginter

Who could it be, though? I legitimately have no idea.

We keep hearing that Bayern Munich wants another right-back, but I don’t think they need one. There seems to be more than enough depth and versatility to around.

I am flummoxed, I tell ya.

Dortmund wants Hudson-Odoi (The Guardian)

Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi has been linked to Bayern Munich for roughly two years, but if he moves to Germany, it could be Borussia Dortmund that lands the youngster:

Borussia Dortmund want to sign Callum Hudson-Odoi on loan and have not been put off by Thomas Tuchel’s insistence that Chelsea intend to keep the winger this summer.

Hudson-Odoi is yet to feature for Chelsea in the Premier League this season and is open to joining Dortmund on loan before the transfer window shuts on Tuesday. The 20-year-old wants more opportunities to showcase his talent and is waiting to see whether the Bundesliga club firm up their interest.

Tuchel left the door open for Hudson-Odoi to fight for his future at Chelsea when he was asked about the youngster on Friday. However the European champions have a formidable array of attacking options and Hudson-Odoi, who has struggled to push on since signing a five-year deal worth £120,000 in September 2019, knows he is unlikely to be a regular starter this season.

Below is a live shot of our own Ineednoname, who has been pining over a move for Hudson-Odoi for what seems like an eternity:

Not that it needs to be said, but Jamal Musiala > Hudson-Odoi...every...damn...day.

Bavarian Podcast Works: Season 4, Episode 4 (Bavarian Football Works)

Bayern Munich have finally ended their first run of games with four wins and one draw. With the international break set to start, it’s time to look back on some of the key stories from the past week, and what we can look forward to in the coming weeks of football.

In this episode, Tom and Ineednoname discuss:

  • Leroy Sane getting booed by Bayern Munich fans — is it justified?
  • The insane transfer spending around Europe, and what it means for Bayern’s own transfer dealings.
  • Marcel Sabitzer coming to Bayern after 30 years (actually days) of rumors.
  • What holes Bayern still need to fill + what needs to be done in the transfer window.
  • What we want to see from Hansi Flick during this international break.

Götze to return to Germany? Flick won’t rule it out (Bild TV via @iMiaSanMia)

Mario Götze has had one of the absolute craziest careers ever.

From phenom to World Cup hero to battling a career-threatening condition to trying to rebuild his legacy, Götze has seen it all.

And now, Götze could potentially find himself back in contention for a spot with Germany:

Friedl to Union? (kicker)

Former Bayern Munich defender Marco Friedl wants a move from Werder Bremen to Union Berlin, but time is running out:

Marco Friedl (23) wants to force a move to Union Berlin - but Werder Bremen only wants to give up the central defender if “our demands are met”, Werder manager Frank Baumann underlined at “Sky”. The 45-year-old added: “I assume that he will remain a Werder Bremen player from Wednesday. We have had talks with another club, but we are still very, very far away.”

Sabitzer to Bayern had to happen (@TaistoFCB)

So...this is pretty cool:
