Bayern Munich legend Franck Ribery was toying around with the idea of moving back to the club, but sporting director Hasan “Brazzo” Salihamidzic was not in favor the deal, which would have been killed by CEO Oliver Kahn anyway.

This marked one of the few times that Brazzo has disagreed with his mentor, Uli Hoeneß:

Booth stays with Bayern (@Plettigoal)

Sport1 journalist Florian Plettenberg broke the news that Bayern Munich midfielder Taylor Booth would be staying put. The 20-year-old has been extremely impressive throughout the summer and will, no doubt, strive to continue his climb up the ranks in Bavaria:

LCFC tried to get Hudson-Odoi (The Boot Room)

Borussia Dortmund was not the only club that wanted to bring in Chelsea FC’s Callum Hudson-Odoi. Leicester City threw its hat in to the ring, but the youngster ended up staying in London:

Leicester City have enquired over a move for Callum Hudson-Odoi, according to football.london.

What’s the story?

The Chelsea winger has been the centre of mass transfer speculation over the last few days. He has been linked with a move to Bundesliga outfit Borussia Dortmund and has allegedly agreed personal terms with the Germans.

Now the Foxes have entered the fray over a permanent move. However, Blues boss Thomas Tuchel wants the winger to stay and fight for his place rather than leave.

Barca’s last minute charge for Olmo (@berger_pj)

One of the crazier stories from the transfer window’s final hours was FC Barcelona’s last minute inquiry on RB Leipzig star Dani Olmo. While nothing ultimately happened, Barca at least made the call to feel things out:

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.

Sabizter’s IG pic is glorious (Instagram — marcel7sabitzer)

It’s always great when pics emerge of Bayern Munich players when they were young and wearing Bayern kits. We can add Marcel Sabitzer to the list with Thomas Müller and Corentin Tolisso (we won’t talk about the pic of Joshua Kimmich in a Borussia Dortmund kit):

Two Bayern players snag goals in the Top 5 Frauen Bundesliga goals of the week (Magenta Sport)

Hanna Glas and Lina Magull had their goals against Werder Bremen named as a Top 5 goal of the week by Magenta Sport. Bayern destroyed Werder 8-0 in the first match of the season:

Griezmann’s wild deadline day (@FabrizioRomano)

Antoine Griezmann’s transfer deadline was absolutely bonkers. The Frenchman moved back to Atletico Madrid on a loan assignment from FC Barcelona — which is completely crazy to think that Barca just helped one of its primary competitors for the La Liga crown.

Atletico Madrid, of course, won the league’s hardware last season:

FC Barcelona badly needs to cut its payroll and loaning Griezmann helps achieve that goal at least.
