Bayern Munich’s week was filled with craziness. A lackluster effort against Bayer Leverkusen was followed by a thoroughly dominant win over Red Bull Salzburg in the Champions League.

The news for the club followed a similar up-and-down pattern. The word on injuries was great, but the transfer news was...surprising. Here is what we have on tap to discuss this week:

  • The bad break that Bayern Munich’s Plan A in the transfer looks like it has failed: Chelsea center-back looks like he’ll sign with FC Barcelona.
  • The Plan B options are not necessarily going to excite many fans as Gleison Bremer and Matthias Ginter could be the next men up.
  • It seems like Bayern Munich has some squad planning and budget issues that are weighing on the folks at Säbener Straße.
  • The tricky situation surrounding Robert Lewandowski.
  • Why thew rumored replacements for Lewandowski probably won’t come to fruition.
