Reus can leave Borussia Dortmund at the end of this season in exchange for payment of a termination clause of 25 million euros. Bayern Munich until now was considered the favorite in the race for Reus although his name has also been frequently associated with the Barcelona and Real Madrid. Economically, the offer of the City may be above where Bayern are the highest paid players Franck Ribery, Philipp Lahm and Bastian Schweinsteiger having an estimated 12 million a year salary.

The Poland striker scored four times against Gibraltar and the Germany No.1 is mindful of the danger he will pose when the sides meet on Saturday Manuel Neuer is wary of the threat posed by Bayern Munich team-mate Robert Lewandowski ahead of Germany’s Euro 2016 qualifier in Poland. Neuer will captain Germany in the absence of midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger in Warsaw on Saturday as the world champions look to build on their 2-1 win over Scotland in last month's Group D opener. Poland have never beaten Germany, but Adam Nawalka's men made a confident start to their qualifying campaign, hammering international new-boys Gibraltar 7-0 in a game that saw striker Lewandowski score four times. Lewandowski has scored four goals in 11 appearances for Bayern so far in his debut season with the Bavarian giants and Neuer knows the Germany defence will need to be on guard to stop the 26-year-old from adding to his international tally. "Lewandowski is one of the world's best strikers," Neuer said. "We will have to ...
Bayern Munich boss Pep Guardiola has called Manchester United’s fall from grace ‘a warning to all the big European clubs’, and revealed that the Old Trafford club didn’t have enough power to buy his star players in the summer. United’s failure to qualify for this season’s Champions League sent shock-waves around Europe, and Guardiola believes that no big club can afford to get ahead of themselves in the way United might have done. ‘They [Manchester United] think: “We are unbeatable and strong” and they are not here. Maybe the next season they are out,’ the former Barcelona boss said. ‘That’s why football is magnificent. ‘Every single week you have to be ready. Every week you have got to show you are ready.’ Guardiola also confirmed that Louis Van Gaal had tried to sign Arjen Robben, Bastian Schweinsteiger and Thomas Mueller over the summer, but said that United simply couldn’t afford them. ‘They [United] didn’t have enough money,’ he said.

Pep Guardiola says Manchester United cannot afford to buy Bayern Munich's star players and believes their decline should serve as a lesson to other clubs in Europe. United have been a perennial giant in English and European football under Sir Alex Ferguson, but the Scot's retirement at the end of the 2012-13 season has seen them go downhill rapidly. Louis Van Gaal was rumoured to be chasing three Bayern Munich players as he looked to add to bolster his squad, with Arjen Robben, Thomas Muller and Bastian Schweinsteiger all linked. Muller recently hinted that he turned down "astronomical" money to join United and Guardiola has added that the 13-time Premier League champions couldn't afford to lure his players away from the Allianz Arena. "[United] didn't have enough money," he told reporters. "I saw they spent a lot of money. It’s good for my friend Louis. It’s part of the game. "All of the clubs in the world want the players of another club. It depends on the player. If the player wants to play he will ...

BAAAB Here's some more bad news on the injury front for all Bayern Munich fans. Arjen Robben missed Sunday's training is unlikely to play in Wednesday's Champions League match against Manchester City. Yes, it appears he will be joining the long list of Bayern players that are unavailable for the match. Robben is still suffering from a knee injury that has been bugging him since after the Wolfsburg match. In addition to Robben, Bayern will definitely be without Holger Badstuber , Bastian Schweinsteiger, Thiago Alcantara, Rafinha, and Javi Martinez. Though, we do have an update that Thiago, Rafinha, and Mitchell Weiser engaged in individual rehab sessions on the field on Sunday.

Bastian Schweinsteiger asked to swap shirts with Paul Scholes - Manchester United vs Bayern Munich:
Already, Van Gaal's Manchester United has a very different feel to it Arturo Vidal and Angel Di Maria may be playing hard-to-get, but that will provide some of last season's much-maligned defenders and midfielders a stage to show what they can do. Arturo Vidal is looking ever likelier to stay at Juventus. Angel Di Maria is odds-on to elect for Paris St Germain over the Premier League. The likes of Arjen Robben and Bastian Schweinsteiger are perfectly happy where they are at Bayern Munich, thank you very much. And yet, despite Manchester United finding suitable midfield targets hard to attract this summer, in Louis Van Gaal they have found a manager supremely confident in making up for any shortfalls within his squad - an abundance of evidence for which has already been on display in the few short weeks he has been at the Red Devils helm. Van Gaal is, first and foremost, a coach.So while the prospect of the likes of Tom Cleverley filling a midfield role this season might fill some supporters with dread, al ...

RIO DE JANEIRO -- Three thoughts from Germany's 1-0 win vs. France in the World Cup quarterfinal. 1. Low changes his mind Bastian Schweinsteiger or Sami Khedira -- there could only be one. That had been the message before and during the tournament, as Germany coach Joachim Low had to come to terms with both his regular central midfielders not being quite ready for the full exertions of a World Cup in Brazil. The job-sharing had worked reasonably well, all things considered. However, against France on Friday, Schweinsteiger and Khedira were back together in the starting lineup for the first time since October 2013 -- a 3-0 win versus Ireland in World Cup qualifying. Schweinsteiger was the deepest of Germany's central midfield trio, Toni Kroos was slightly to the left and Khedira a bit to the right. And where was the captain Philipp Lahm? The Bayern Munich man was back in his traditional right-back position. Before the game, that news was greeted with a sharp intake of air in the German section of the Marac ...
World Cup GOSSIP Netherlands boss Louis Van Gaal has complained he'll need a barstool in the dug-out to see his stars play Australia, with TV cameramen obstructing his view. Daily Mirror England striker Wayne Rooney, 28, spent a whole 90-minute training session up front, as opposed to the left position that frustrated him against Italy. Sun Uruguay are a two-man team who rely too heavily on Luis Suarez, 27, and Edinson Cavani, 27, according to Northern Ireland boss Michael O'Neill. Daily Star QPR boss Harry Redknapp believes Uruguay will have "no chance" of beating England if striker Luis Suarez, 27, is not fit. Evening Standard Suarez's fitness is a national obsession for Uruguay and dominated their TV, radio and newspapers.

Bastian Schweinsteiger is now their top midfield target for the summer but Louis Van Gaal is open to doing a deal for the Roma star earlier than January if necessary Manchester United are continuing to monitor Kevin Strootman’s situation with a view to signing the Roma and Netherlands midfielder, most likely in January. As revealed by Goal, Bastian Schweinsteiger is the Red Devils’ top midfield target this summer, with a £20 million bid for the Bayern Munich star on its way. But manager Louis Van Gaal remains keen on bringing Strootman to Old Trafford at the earliest opportunity, despite the 24-year-old currently recovering from a serious knee injury. Strootman joined the likes of Mats Hummels and Luke Shaw on Van Gaal’s wishlist upon agreeing to take over at Old Trafford after the World Cup and United have asked to be kept abreast of the Netherlands star’s situation. He was forced to miss out on the World Cup after being sidelined with a knee injury that could disrupt the start of next season.
There is, it turns out, something of a global football competition due to kick off later. It means that the usual endless cycling of flim-flam, fluff and hooey has taken a bit of a back seat for the more riveting news of stadiums not being built, grass not growing on pitches it should be growing on, and whether Carlo Costly has the best name at the World Cup. It means that, as a treat for its regular reader (hi Mum!), the Mill will be existing in somewhat pared down format for the duration. Which will come as a relief to anyone who has to trawl through it in the hope there might be news of an ex-Sunderland loanee going to West Ham. Manchester United are in the market for another Bayern Munich midfielder, with Bastian Schweinsteiger the current object of their affections, though Atlético Madrid’s Miranda is also of interest. They are, apparently, not now interested in Edinson Cavani who may also not have been very interested in them. Instead, they may turn to Argentina striker Nicolás Gaitán, but face ...

Arsenal are set to make a £5m offer for Liverpool goalkeeper Pepe Reina. Bastian Schweinsteiger is keen to swap Bayern Munich for the Premier League and link up with former die Roten boss Louis Van Gaal at Manchester United. The Dutchman was responsible for converting his one-time charge into a holding midfielder. According to reports the catalans are ready to give Dani Alves to Paris Saint Germain in order to get the defender Marquinhos.

Manchester United to make £20m offer for Bayern Munich midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger
Manchester United are now officially in talks with Bayern Munich over the transfer of German international, Bastian Schweinsteiger.
Good evening. Tonight we continue our look at World Cup Groups with a look at Group G. GERMANY (seeded) How do they play? Style & formation: Blessed with far more flair than many Germany sides of the past, their fluid 4-2-3-1 is underpinned by Bastian Schweinsteiger and Sami Khedira - recently back from a long-term injury - anchoring the side from the base of midfield. Ahead of them lies creative fulcrum Mesut Ozil, who is usually flanked by the dangerous Marco Reus and Thomas Muller. Strengths: They have an incredible array of attacking midfielders that guarantee goals. Manuel Neuer can lay claim to being the world's best goalkeeper and Philipp Lahm, whatever position he plays in, brings calmness and tactical nous along with his vice-captain Schweinsteiger. The free-scoring Müller has a priceless knack of being in the right place at the right time. Weaknesses: More than you'd imagine. Left-back is an issue for coach Joachim Low, while the defence as a whole has been porous of late and was given a torrid ...

Louis Van Gaal has set Manchester United their summer homework – land four players by next month- starting with Liverpool target Yevhen Konoplyanka. In a big test for executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward, the Reds new boss wants significant progress to have been made on recruiting Konoplyanka, Bayern Munich midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger and ­Dortmund defender Mats Hummels by the time the World Cup ends - Van Gaal will be in Brazil as Holland coach. Roma midfielder Kevin Strootman is also on the radar but he will not play again until next year because of a cruciate ligament injury. Woodward came under fire for chasing Cesc Fabregas, Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale for much of last summer – and ended up with none. The successor to David Gill, he was also accused of leaving it too late to do other deals before paying over the odds for Marouane Fellaini. When David Moyes was sacked in April, Woodward managed to stay out of the line of fire, even though some felt he was just as culpable as the axed U ...

Chelsea to Make Bid for Bayern Munich Midfielder This Weekend. Chelsea are readying a bid for Bayern Munich midfielder Toni Kroos with Football Direct News claiming the west London side will register their interest in the German international this weekend. Kroos wants parity with top earners Franck Ribery, Bastian Schweinsteiger and Phillip Lahm a demand the Bundesiga side have resisted for some months and the Bayern Munich man now has just a year to run on his current contract and as such could be ready to consider offers for his services knowing his value will rapidly decrease once the summer transfer window slams shut. Chelsea are willing to meet the 24 year old’s wage demands and this source claims that Kroos is to act as a long term replacement for Frank Lampard and is part of Jose Mourinho’s overall plan to refresh his squad as he plans for the future. Man United have long been linked with a genuine interest in Kroos but the Old Trafford side have distanced themselves from the move since Louis v ...
Toni Kroos could still end up in the Barclays Premier League after claims Chelsea are ready to join the bidding if he becomes a free agent next year. A proposed move to Manchester United may have collapsed, after new manager Louis Van Gaal decided against pursuing their interest, but the Bayern Munich midfielder remains at loggerheads with club bosses over renewing a contract that is entering its final 12 months. Even an attempt to end conjecture he may be Old Trafford- bound left the door open for other clubs to start drawing up wage offers to try and tempt him away this time next year. ‘There has been a lot of speculation, but I won’t be going to Manchester United,’ he said. ‘I can tell you for sure I will be playing for Bayern Munich next season.’ According to sources in Munich, his refusal to commit himself to Bayern beyond the one remaining season on his current contract has alerted Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho, who would welcome the chance to add the 24-year old’s goalscoring flair from ...

Louis Van Gaal doesn't want Kroos/Fabregas. Van Gaal has his own transfer plans.. Manchester United boss Louis Van Gaal has scratched the names of Toni Kroos and Francesc Fabregas off of his transfer wish list for the summer, as he focuses on the capture of Bayern Munich star Bastian Schweinsteiger. According to report Dutchman, who is preparing to make large scale changes to the first team squad which faltered under David Moyes for the majority of the last campaign, has set his sights firmly on the German international, and isn’t fazed at all by the idea of not getting Fabregas or Kroos. Both of those men were initially believed to be high on the agenda in terms of the players set to be bought in to Old Trafford before next season, but Van Gaal, it would seem, has very different ideas to those of his predecessor. What’s more interesting is that Schweinsteiger could be available for as little as £10million this summer, as Pep Guardiola doesn’t rate him as an invaluable asset, particularly with youn ...

Lahm: Our defence must improve - Germany captain Philipp Lahm feels said his side must drastically improve their defence or risk an early 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil™ exit. "We have to work especially on our defence," the Bayern Munich star told Bild with Germany facing Portugal in their opening Group G game on 16 June in Salvador. "Recently, we have conceded far too many goals and allowed our opponents too many chances. We must pay more attention to our defensive formation and the whole team is needed for that." Traditionally, Germany have relied on a rock-solid defence at major tournaments, but they have leaked goals in recent games, namely the 3-3 friendly with Paraguay last August and the 4-4 World Cup qualifier against Sweden in October 2012. The 30-year-old Lahm admits this could well be his last chance to win the World Cup title having reached the semi-finals at both Germany 2006 and South Africa 2010.

Front page news in Germany: Arsenal and Liverpool want Muller-- Last week German magazine Kicker kicked off the Thomas Muller to Manchester United stories. They did a feature on four players who were giving Bayern Munich four problems. Those players were Bastian Schweinsteiger, Javi Martinez, Thomas Muller and Franck Ribery. The problem in Muller's case, according to Kicker, was partly that Louis Van Gaal would like to sign the player if and when he's confirmed as Manchester United manager and, perhaps more surprisingly, they claimed that the German international is interested in such a move. That led to every English newspaper running the story and elaborating in their own way on it. Muller then had to deny he was eager to leave, but didn't guarantee he'd stay forever and Franz Beckenbauer said Bayern needed to keep Muller but would have to find a solution if he wanted to leave. This week's edition of Kicker has Muller on the front page, along with the claim 'Arsenal and Liverpool also want Muller', it's ...

Champions League semifinal - Bayern Munich vs Real Madrid at Allianz Arena on 30 April 2014. Match starts at 12:30 am India time. It's the clash between two of the biggest spenders in club football. Real Madrid are worth 425 millions and Bayern are worth 314 million pounds in player values. Carlo Ancelotti and Pep Guardiola have been good with their respective teams but RM stands a better chance after the 1-0 lead in the first leg. Bayern were tactically naive in the first leg where RM played without Gareth Bale and CR without full fitness. Will the Bavarians get the two required goals and prevent RM from scoring that 1 away goal? Real Madrid: Iker Casillas; Marcelo, Sergio Ramos, Pepe, Dani Carvajal; Ángel di María, Xabi Alonso, Luka Modrić; Cristiano Ronaldo, Karim Benzema, Gareth Bale. Bayern Munich: Manuel Neuer; David Alaba, Dante, Jerome Boateng, Philipp Lahm; Javi Martínez; Franck Ribéry, Bastian Schweinsteiger, Toni Kroos, Arjen Robben; Mario Mandžukić.
Wayne Rooney starts for Manchester United as they attempt to book a last four spot at the expense of holders Bayern Munich. TEAM NEWS Bayern will be without three key midfielders for the quarter-final second leg, evenly poised after last week's 1-1 draw. Bastian Schweinsteiger is suspended following his first leg sending-off, Javier Martinez also misses out through suspension, while a third key midfielder, Thiago Alcantara, is out injured. Manchester United have doubts over the fitness of Wayne Rooney, although the striker has travelled to Bavaria despite his injured toe, which was heavily bruised in last week's first leg at Old Trafford. Ashley Young is also doubtful after picking up a hand injury in the weekend's win over Newcastle in the Premier League. But experienced left-back Patrice Evra has indicated he expects to be fit enough to return to the side after missing the first leg through suspension and despite struggling with a knee problem.

Tomorrow's THE MATCH. And I'll be right there to see Bayern Munich vs. Manchaster United! And please my dear Bayern players win for Bastian Schweinsteiger :-)
United wait on Rooney for Bayern clash (AFP) Tuesday 8 April 2014 Share Manchester United's Wayne Rooney faces a race against time to be fit for Wednesday's Uefa Champions League quarter-final, second-leg at Bayern Munich with the hosts winless in their last three matches. European Champions Bayern suffered their first Bundesliga defeat for 18 months when they were beaten 1-0 at Augsburg on Saturday following last Tuesday's 1-1 first-leg draw with United at Old Trafford. Centre-back Nemanja Vidic's header put United ahead in the first-leg at Old Trafford only for Bayern's Bastian Schweinsteiger equaliser before being sent off for a second yellow card on the stroke of 90 minutes. Bayern coach Pep Guardiola has described Wednesday's second-leg at the Allianz Arena as a matter of "life or death" for holders Munich, who have made no secret of their desire to become the first team to defend the Champions League title. United's hopes hinge on Rooney, who missed Saturday's 4-0 league win at Newcastle United with ...
According to German newspaper Bild, Bayern Munich have been practicing defending set pieces in secret ahead of their Champions League quarter- final against Manchester United. The paper claims that Philipp Lahm will play at right-back, with Toni Kroos filling in for the suspended Bastian Schweinsteiger in midfield and Mario Gotze and Mario Mandzukic playing in attack, with the scores level at 1-1 from the first leg at Old Trafford.
Ten reasons why Man United can knock Bayern Munich; 1. Suspensions - Bayern Munich will be without influential midfield duo Bastian Schweinsteiger and Javi Martinez. That does not mean United go into the game with a better midfield than their hosts, but it means the differential is smaller. Schweinsteiger is hugely experienced and bosses play from midfield while Martinez acts a shield in front of the defence. Toni Kroos is still there but the other likely replacements - Mario Gotze and Xherdan Shaqiri, are attack minded. That could give United a chance to score the precious away goal. 2. Counter attack - United effectively played the first leg as an away game, enjoying just 24 per cent of possession, yet they had four shots on target to Bayern's three. And after it all, the only stat that matters is the scoreline. It is clear United don't have the players to control this game but if they use the possession they do get to full effect they can make it count. 3. History - They may well deny it but what happe ...

Wayne Rooney : "I don't really want to say what he said but I think it's a foul," "It could have gone either way.

Ashley Young claims Bayern Munich will miss suspended stars Bastian Schweinsteiger and Javi Martinez and that Manchester United have "a massive chance" in the second leg of the Champions League quarter-final next week. "I can't wait to go to Munich. We have given ourselves a massive chance. I think everyone would have taken that result before a ball was kicked. It sets us up nicely for the second leg. It was a great team performance and we look forward to the second leg now. "Everybody wrote us off before the game but we created many chances. We know they are a good team but we knew we would get chances on the counter attack. We managed to do that and got the goal. "Schweinsteiger is going to be a miss for them. Martinez will be as well. But we have to concentrate on ourselves and put on a performance."
Match Report: Manchester United 1 Bayern Munich 1 United will travel to Germany with plenty of hope of reaching the Champions League semi-finals after a spirited 1-1 draw with holders Bayern Munich. Nemanja Vidic put the Reds in front when he headed in from a Wayne Rooney corner but Bastian Schweinsteiger, who was later sent off for a second yellow card, equalized for the visitors.
Wayne Rooney accused of diving by Bastian Schweinsteiger Bayern Munich and Manchester United played to a 1-1 draw Tuesday in the first leg of a Champions League quarterfinal. Nemanja Vidic got the Red Devils on the board in the 58th minute while Bastian Schweinsteiger notched the equalizer for the defending champs in the 66th minute. But it was a moment between United star Wayne Rooney and the Bayern vice-captain in the 90th minute that had Old Trafford buzzing. After the German drew a yellow card earlier in the second half, Rooney had possession late in the match when Schweinsteiger went in for the tackle. gets a 2nd yellow for this foul on Rooney.

Man U vs Bayern For a short while an eccentric season for Manchester United featuring seven home defeats and more ignominy than David Moyes will want to remember was shaping up for a result that might have shifted the entire mood of the club. They had given everything, against superior opponents, and for eight minutes they led and Old Trafford, once again, felt like a happy place. Moyes will just wish his players could have done a better job of protecting their lead before Bayern Munich finally bared their teeth. Instead, Bastian Schweinsteiger's equaliser leaves the European Champions in a position of strength going into the return leg. Yet not, perhaps, the position many people might have anticipated bearing in mind the ordeals United have suffered on this ground. The ruthless winning machine from Bavaria certainly did not get everything their own way. Schweinsteiger will be suspended next week after his challenge on Wayne Rooney late-on brought him a second yellow card of the night, and a booking for J ...

Trailing 2-0 from the first leg of the Champions League last 16 tie against holders Bayern, it was the perfect stage for Germany playmaker Ozil to deliver a grandstand performance.

The former Barcelona boss has accused Arsene Wenger's side of merely waiting for the Bavarians to lose the ball in the hope of hitting their hosts on the counterattack Pep Guardiola has defended Bayern Munich's performance against Arsenal on Tuesday night, claiming that it had been difficult for his troops to find space against a side that he felt had played without any ambition. The Gunners had gone into the second leg of what had been an eagerly-awaited Champions League last-16 tie trailing 2-0 on aggregate. Consequently, Guardiola was surprised by what he perceived as Arsenal's unwillingness to attack at the Allianz Arena and felt that Bayern were unlucky to win a game that ended 1-1, with Lukas Podolski having almost immediately cancelled out Bastian Schweinsteiger's 55th-minute opener for the hosts. "We had a lot of control but the opponent didn't come to push," the former Spain international told his club's official website. "It's 2-0 in the head of the players and it's not easy. We're 2-0 up and we ...
Arsenal exited the Champions League at the first knockout stage for the fourth year in a row after drawing at holders Bayern Munich. A dominant Bayern, leading 2-0 from the first leg, had a Javi Martinez volley ruled out for offside before the break. Bastian Schweinsteiger gave Bayern the lead from close range before Lukas Podolski shot high into the net to level the score on the night. Thomas Muller had a late penalty saved as Bayern won 3-1 on aggregate. Arsenal's European exit leaves them just two more chances to end a nine-year trophy drought this season. Arsene Wenger's men are in the FA Cup semi-final and seven points behind Premier League leaders Chelsea. The damage was done in the first leg at Emirates Stadium, where Arsenal will rue an early missed penalty by Mesut Ozil and the dismissal of goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny. Few gave the Gunners much chance of overturning the 2-0 deficit at the defending European and German champions, who won a record 16th Bundesliga game in a row against Wolfsburg on ...

Bayern Munich 1-1 Arsenal: Podolski goal not enough to worry dominant Germans... Bayern Munich were never really troubled tonight by Arsenal who did manage to stop their German rivals winning a 14th consecutive match. Bastian Schweinsteiger bagged the game's opening goal following clever work from Franck Ribery down Bayern's left. Lukas Podolski fouled Philipp Lahm for the Gunners' equaliser, but although everyone stopped playing, the referee never gave it, and the former Bayern forward went and slammed the ball inside the near post from a tight angle. Sadly for Arsenal though, it wasn't enough - and Bayern went through 3-1 on aggregate.
Philipp Lahm admitted the memory of last season’s home defeat to Arsenal had entered his mind before Bayern Munich edged through to the quarter-finals of the Champions League on Tuesday night. Bayern lost 2-0 to Arsene Wenger’s side 12 months ago but edged through on the away goals rule on their way to winning the trophy. They went into Wednesday’s tie in a commanding position having won the first leg 2-0 at the Emirates and strengthened their hand further when Bastian Schweinsteiger put them ahead after 55 minutes. But former Bayern forward Lukas Podolski equalised almost immediately and, buoyed by the goal, Arsenal poured forward, causing the hosts some nervous moments. They were unable to breach the Bayern backline again, however, and it was Pep Guardiola’s side who ought to have restored their advantage on the night only for Thomas Muller to miss a late penalty. The 3-1 aggregate scoreline may appear comfortable but Lahm conceded there were some flutters when Podolski scored.
Arsenal battled hard but could only draw 1-1 away to Bayern Munich, who progress to the Uefa Champions League's last eight. The Gunners were given the runaround in a goalless first half at the Allianz Arena on Tuesday night, with chances few and far between as they sought to turn around Bayern's two-goal advantage from the first leg. Ten minutes after the restart, Bastian Schweinsteiger scored from Franck Ribery's left-wing cross and although Lukas Podolski quickly smashed in an equaliser, the Gunners could not produce the goals they needed and went out 3-1 on aggregate. At least they were not beaten, with Lukas Fabianski saving a late penalty from substitute Thomas Muller after Laurent Koscielny fouled Arjen Robben in the box. Arsene Wenger made three changes to the Arsenal team that started the 4-1 FA Cup win over Everton on Saturday. In came Koscielny, Podolski and Olivier Giroud in place of Kieran Gibbs (ankle), Yaya Sanogo (foot) and Mathieu Flamini, who dropped to the bench. Wojciech Szczesny was su ...
Champions League. BAYERN 1 ARSENAL 1 Wednesday 12 March 2014 = Arsenal fail to claw back deficit as Bayern Munich proceed to last eight Ultimately the size of the task was too much for Arsenal. They held their own against the five-times champions but the damage inflicted in the first leg was too grievous and there was never really any part of the night when Bayern’s place in the quarter-finals seemed vulnerable. Pep Guardiola’s side controlled the match and will probably reflect that the evening should have been even more stress-free considering Lukasz Fabianski’s penalty save from Thomas Müller in stoppage time and the controversy surrounding Lukas Podolski’s equaliser for Arsenal. Bastian Schweinsteiger had opened the scoring and Bayern immediately set about re-establishing their authority after the jolt of losing their lead inside two minutes. This really was the most disappointing part of Arsenal’s performance. When they needed to increase the pressure on Bayern and start taking more risks, ...

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has slammed “diver” Arjen Robben following his side’s Champions League exit to current holders Bayern Munich. A spirited performance saw the Gunners secure a respectable 1-1 draw in Bavaria, but it was not enough to book a quarter-final place as the Germans secured a 3-1 aggregate victory. Having trailed 2-0 following their first leg defeat at the Emirates, Arsenal fell further behind when Bastian Schweinsteiger stuck home early in the second-half, though Lukas Podolski blasted in the equaliser against his former club moments later. The drama continued late into the tie as Bayern were awarded a later penalty when Robben, who has a reputation for theatricals, went down very easily under pressure from Laurent Koscielny. Thomas Muller squandered his chance from the spot as Lukasz Fabianski, in for the suspended Wojciech Szczesny, did well to deny the German’s poor kick. But having seen Robben go to ground on numerous occasions during the two-legged tie, Wenger was unimpr ...
Bayern Munich: five things Pep Guardiola has done to improve them As they prepare to face Arsenal, here's how manager Pep Guardiola has made the European Champions even stronger 1 He keeps his opponents guessing Under Louis Van Gaal, the godfather of Bayern's possession game and Jupp Heynckes, his more pragmatic and tactically refined successor, it was easy to predict Bayern's lineups. They always formed-up in a 4-2-3-1, changes were always injury-enforced, and both coaches would simply try to find replacements that would most closely resemble the properties of the missing regulars. Under Guardiola, that kind of certainty has largely gone out of the window. Only the back-four are settled. Philipp Lahm's transformation into a holding midfielder seems to have become permanent but it's still possible that the captain will find himself back in the right-back role later this season. Javier Martínez, Bastian Schweinsteiger, Thiago Alcântara and Toni Kroos are all vying for places in midfield and have been use ...
club record fee for German. Man United will step-up their pursuit of Bayern Munich star Toni Kroos with the Daily Mailclaiming that boss David Moyes is ready to sanction a £40m bid for the midfielder. 24 year old Kroos has been in ongoing contractual talks with his Bavarian employers with the German international said to have demanded as much as treble his current £60k a week salary, so as to have parity with the Allianz Arena side’s top earners. Man United have wisely stepped in and are said to be happy to offer Kroos a massive £250k a week deal as an incentive to quit the Bundesliga for a move to Old Trafford. Given the number of central midfield options open to boss Pep Guardiola, who can call upon the likes of Bastian Schweinsteiger, Thiago Alcantara, Javi Martinez and Mario Gotze, an offer of this magnitude may be considered by the al conquering German side. David Moyes is desperate to freshen up a rather brittle midfield and could well be ready to permanently offload loaned out Brazilian Anders ...

Bayern Munich came to London to face Arsenal in the Champions League in consecutive seasons and twice came away with a two-goal victory. Both times, Toni Kroos was instrumental; but this year, his position at the Allianz Arena was in question, and his influence all the more critical. Mere months ago, it seemed unthinkable that his place at the Allianz Arena could be under threat. Perhaps one of the players to benefit the most from Pep Guardiola's revolution, he finally looked to be living up to his billing - the long- term heir to Bastian Schweinsteiger and the future torchbearer for the Bayern midfield.

The most contentious choice must be Thomas Muller, Bayern’s attacker who is comfortable in any position across the front three or indeed, behind the striker.

Bayern Munich's Germany star Bastian Schweinsteiger has said he has no fear of missing the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, despite his on-going ankle problems.
Group G contains European heavy-weights Germany and Portugal; and the emerging footballing nations of U.S.A and Ghana. Group G is touted to be the "Group of death", with Germany's injury problems and Portugal's over-dependence on Ronaldo makes this group wide open. Germany: Germany are one of the favourites to win the World Cup in Brazil, given their domestic league's dominance in Europe and their abundance of young, up and coming talent. One major issue that concerns the German National Team manager Joachim Low, is the injuries to the midfield duo of Sami Khedira and Bastian Schweinsteiger. Sami Khedira is likely to miss-out with a ruptured Knee ligament but the Bayern Munich midfielder can make it to Brazil if he regains his fitness. Germany have played with a "False Nine" in most of the matches this year, the lack of a lethal center forward could make things a bit difficult. Germany may head to Brazil with an inexperienced squad but not one that lacks world class talent. Germany contains the talent tha ...
411: Bayern Munich will be without Franck Ribery for Saturday's Bundesliga clash with Borussia Dortmund due to a fractured rib. The winger picked up the problem during France's 3-0 FIFA World Cup play-off victory over Ukraine on Tuesday, which saw Les Bleus qualify for next year's tournament, and is now set to miss the re-match between last year's Uefa Champions League finalists. "I’m obviously gutted, because I was desperate to play in the big game in Dortmund," he told Bayern's official website. "But I’m sure the team can do it without me this time." Ribery joins an injury list at the Allianz Arena club that also includes Bastian Schweinsteiger, Claudio Pizarro, Xherdan Shaqiri and Holger Badstuber.
Bastian Schweinsteiger has undergone a successful operation on his right ankle, according to Bayern Munich president Uli Hoeness.
Viktoria Plzen-Bayern Munich: Pep's men can book last-16 place The European Champions have won all of their group stage matches so far and could ensure a place in the next round with another victory The defending champions sit three points clear of nearest rivals Manchester City at the top of Group D after three consecutive wins, scoring 11 goals and conceding just one. Franck Ribery's form has been key to Bayern's success so far, the France international winger is the German side's top scorer in the tournament having found the net three times. Two of those goals came in Bayern's 5-0 destruction over Plzen at the Allianz Arena last month as Mario Gotze, Bastian Schweinsteiger and David Alaba also scoring in a comprehensive win. Coach Pep Guardiola will look for his Bayern side to replicate that performance, well aware that the Bundesliga champions will qualify for the round of 16 if they take all three points and Manchester City beat CSKA Moscow. Bayern should be boosted by the prospective returns of wing ...

BERLIN -- Bayern Munich overcame a red card for Franck Ribery to reach the quarterfinals of the German Cup with a 2-0 win at Augsburg on Tuesday. Patriots Tim Tebow Jersey . Ribery set up Mario Gomez for Bayerns opening goal in the 26th minute of the third round match, when the Frenchman got his cross in despite the attention of three defenders. It should have been 2-0 before the break, when Anatoliy Tymoshchuk struck the crossbar with a tremendous shot from distance. Play continued despite TV replays showing the ball crossed the line. Augsburg goalkeeper Alexander Manninger denied Bastian Schweinsteiger from the rebound and the Bayern midfielder struck the crossbar with an overhead kick from the second attempt. Ribery was sent off early in the second half after an altercation with Koo Ja-Cheol. The Frenchman struck Koo lightly in the face in retaliation for a slap unseen by the referee, leaving the South Korean lucky to escape with just a yellow. "The red card was provoked, but it should be discussed," ...
Franck Ribery has been voted the Bundesliga Player of the Year by his fellow professionals, while his Bayern Munich team-mate Manuel Neuer was chosen as the league's best goalkeeper but boss Jupp Heynckes missed out on the top coach award.

Saturday’s DFB-Pokal final victory over Stuttgart brought to an end a fantastic season.

For the fifth time in their history, Bayern Munich are the champions of Europe. Jupp Heynckes goes out in style, leaving the Bavarian side after guiding them to a 2-1 win over Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League final. ayern Munich are the European Champions, thank to a brilliant late flurry and an 89th- minute winner by Arjen Robben. Borussia Dortmund gave the Bavarians more trouble than most anticipated, but didn't have enough to overcome their Bundesliga rivals as Bayern won, 2-1, to lift the Champions League trophy. Jürgen Klopp opted to stick with his regular formation, even in the absence of Mario Götze, by playing Kevin Großkreutz on the wing and moving Marco Reus inside. There were some rumblings that Sebastian Kehl might start, moving Ilkay Gündogan up the pitch, but Klopp opted for the alternative.

Borussia Dortmund 1-2 Bayern Munich: Robben earns redemption with late winner Arjen Robben buried the demons of finals past with a last-gasp goal to give Bayern Munich the 2012-13 Champions League title with a 2-1 victory over Borussia Dortmund in the final at Wembley on Saturday. Dortmund were the superior side during a captivating yet goalless first half, forcing Manual Neuer into a succession of saves - though opposite number Roman Weidenfeller was also called into action more than once. With an hour gone, Mario Mandzukic put the Bavarians ahead from close range, but a clumsy foul by Dante on Marco Reus allowed Ilkay Gundogan to level the scores from the penalty spot eight minutes later. But with one minute remaining in regulation time, Arjen Robben stole in to squeeze the ball over the line, and ensure that Bayern munich took home the trophy that eluded them in 2010 and 2012.

Jupp Heynckes tightens the screw on his Bayern Munich machine | Marcus Christenson Arsenal face a formidable side forged by a manager determined to go out in a blaze of glory by winning the Champions League Jupp Heynckes was not happy. The Bayern Munich manager had seen something he found unacceptable. Weisse Socken. White socks. Unbelievable. Had he not told the entire squad to wear black socks for this particular training session in Qatar? And yet there were Bastian Schweinsteiger and Toni Kroos in white socks. "We have a joint goal we are working towards," he barked at the players. "We need discipline. And that starts with having the same socks." The manager even wanted to fine the two players. The club captain, Philipp Lahm, was told to collect the money but in the end they arrived at a truce. Heynckes, however, had made his point. Schweinsteiger and Kroos, needless to say, wore black socks for the afternoon session. "Did our manager overreact? No, I think he did the right thing," said the Bayern chie ...

KNVB = DID YOU KNOW? Netherlands began life under Louis Van Gaal with a friendly against another country with which it shares a border - Belgium. Marco van Basten and Ronald Koeman scored as Oranje came from behind to claim a 2-1 win over West Germany en route to their only major title to date - Euro 1988. A total of six players from Van Gaal's squad ply their trade in the Bundesliga, including Rafael van der Vaart and Klaas-Jan Huntelaar (both pictured, right). (West) Germany sealed its second World Cup triumph by coming from behind to beat Oranje 2-1 in Munich in 1974. A host of Nationalelf regulars, including Bastian Schweinsteiger, Toni Kroos, Philipp Lahm and Thomas Muller were coached by Van Gaal during his time at Bayern Munich, which ended in 2011.

Salomon Kalou pulled one back from long range but substitute Toni Kroos was quick to add his name to the list of scorers as Bayern moved to nine points ahead of their second meeting with fellow pace-setters Valencia. Lille's Franck Beria fired over before Bastian Schweinsteiger opened the floodgates inside five minutes, finding the bottom corner with a free-kick after being fouled by Florent Balmont. Nolan Roux nodded over and Salomon Kalou's header was saved by Manuel Neuer as Lille sought a quick response. But Pizarro made it 2-0 in the 18th minute when he fired home Franck Ribery's pass from outside the box. Another free-kick brought Bayern's third goal, Schweinsteiger fouled once again and Arjen Robben this time stepping up to extend the lead. ...

2008 was buried by a penalty shoot-out win for the Blues. Bayern Munich took the lead after 82 minutes of a game they dominated in the face of some high-class Chelsea defending, but showing the resilience yet again that had taken us all this way to Munich, Didier Drogba netted his ninth goal in nine cup finals with two minutes left to play. Cech then saved a penalty in extra-time so 10 more had to be taken to determine the destiny of the European Cup. Juan Mata failed with Chelsea's first but Cech saved one and Bastian Schweinsteiger struck woodwork Drogba stepped up to win the competition for the first time for a London club.

Werder Bremen 0-2 Bayern Munich: Gustavo and Mandzukic strike late to preserve visitors' perfect start to new season The Bavarian giants were met with a spirited performance from the home side, but should have put the game to bed much earlier had they found the target with one of their many chances. However, just when their 100 per cent record looked ready to end, Luis Gustavo struck gold with a 20-yard drive to send them into the lead with only nine minutes remining. The points were made safe three minutes later by substitute Mario Mandzukic, who converted a simple tap-in to send Bayern to victory and into a five-point lead at the top of the table. Xherdan Shaqiri made way for Thomas Muller in the visitors' XI, while Claudio Pizarro was chosen to lead the line ahead of Mandzukic from the start.

Molby: RVP a coup, but United need a midfielder. Liverpool legend Jan Molby says Robin Van Persie is a great signing for Manchester United, but they won't win the title unless they sign a top-class midfielder. The signing of Robin Van Persie is obviously a huge coup for Manchester United, and gives them renewed hope of taking back the Premier League title from Manchester City, but it doesn't address one of the fundamental weaknesses of Sir Alex Ferguson's team. The player United actually needed to sign was an out-and-out midfielder, not another forward. I am really surprised that they haven't decided to do anything about that area and I think if they don't before the transfer window closes then it will cost them this season. Ferguson needed to recruit a player like Bastian Schweinsteiger or Javi Martinez, who is on the verge of joining the Germany international at Bayern Munich in a 40 million euro deal from Athletic Bilbao. Those two look like players who are made for Manchester United. Instead they have ...

Alaba and Rafinha injured. July 21, 2012 Bayern Munich duo David Alaba and Rafinha suffered injuries during Friday's 3-2 friendly defeat to Napoli. Alaba, 20, is expected to miss six to eight weeks after suffering a stress fracture, though he will undergo further tests on Monday. Full-back Rafinha, meanwhile, tore ankle ligaments and is likely to be out for four to five weeks. The pair have not been included in the squad for the trip to China on Sunday, while coach Jupp Heynckes said Germany duo Philipp Lahm and Bastian Schweinsteiger will also remain at home to focus on "building up their fitness". Despite the setbacks, Heynckes was drawing the positives from the Napoli friendly. "I was pleased with the performance of my team over long stretches," he said. "It was a more valuable and good test which provided more information than if we had beaten a team 11-0." Alaba and Xherdan Shaqiri scored for Bayern.

Bastian Schweinsteiger, Germany v Netherlands (EURO 2012) Getty Images Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich has visited Germany's Euro 2012 camp earlier this week, where he had a brief chat with Bayern Munich midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger. National team coach Joachim Low has confirmed that the Russian oligarch met with the influential midfielder, but stressed that there's nothing behind the 45-year-old's surprise visit. "Roman Abramovich paid us a visit and had a talk with Bastian," the 52-year-old told Hamburger Abendblatt. "They were having a laugh with each other, and Bastian congratulated him with the Champions League win. I don't think there's anything behind the meeting." The Chelsea owner also watched Russia's 1-1 draw against Poland on Tuesday, and Schweinsteiger insisted that they had not discuss a potential transfer. "I was surprised to see him and wondered why he was here. I've congratulated him and we had a brief chat. No, he didn't make me an offer," smiled the midfielder. Schweinsteiger missed ...

Netherlands' hopes of advancing to the Euro 2012 quarterfinals are hanging by a thread after a 2-1 loss to Germany at Metalist Stadium on Wednesday. A laboring Dutch outfit fell two goals behind by halftime thanks to a pair of lethal finishes from Mario Gomez, who took his tournament tally up to three, with both goals set up by Bayern Munich teammate Bastian Schweinsteiger. Bert Van Marwijk's men were able to improve after the break though, and pulled one back through a breathtaking strike from Robin Van Persie on 73 minutes. But despite a late surge from the Oranje, Joachim Low's men were able to hang on and take their place at the top of Group B with six points leaving them on the verge of qualification for the last eight. Even if the Dutch beat Portugal in their final group game on Sunday, their fate is out of their hands, as qualification depends on both Germany defeating Denmark and a favorable goal-difference. Van Persie had the first opportunity of the match after six minutes, running onto Mark van ...

Dear Bayern Munich and fans, This letter isn't meant to be patronising. I'm thrilled to finally see Chelsea lift this trophy, of course, and I'm not going to be ashamed of that. But I find myself feeling sad it was you we beat to get there. Blues fans know as much as anyone the pain of coming so close and not making it - not two final losses in three years, but our litany of failure in the Champions League has been something approximating magnificent since 2003 - and I'm not sure I'd wish that upon my worst enemy, let alone you guys. Because, really, Bayern Munich areawesome. We've faced all sorts of teams this season, ranging from the eminently likeable (Napoli) to to the curiously deluded (Benfica) the objectively malevolent (Barcelona). Bayern have to be themost compelling combination of likeability, talent and playing style we've come across this year in any competition. Seeing some teams lose is funny. Seeing the likes of Bastian Schweinsteiger , Philipp Lahm and Manuel Neuer devastated is not. I dou ...

Today, my two favorite soccer teams on the planet play one another in the European Cup Final, Chelsea v. Bayern Munich today at 1:45PM CST on Fox Soccer Channel. It’s the first time the two sides have met on the pitch since 2005 and Bayern came out on top. It’s also the first time that one of the teams, Bayern Munich, got the fixture on their home pitch since Roma, fourteen years ago, in 1998, did the same, so the Munich faithful will be LOUD the entire match. Additionally, The Blue will be without the face of their franchise, John Terry, who procured a red card in the semi-final, so definitely bittersweet for him if Chelsea can beat the odds and upset Bayern without him. Man to watch: Bastian Schweinsteiger of Bayern; a great player who gained prominence on the German National Team in the last two World Cups. He is a real Field Marshall in the middle for his side.

Bayern Munich will be without suspended trio Holger Badstuber, David Alaba and Luiz Gustavo for Saturday's Champions League final showdown with Chelsea at the Allianz Arena. Defender Breno (knee) is out and Daniel Van Buyten is shorn of match fitness, so Anatoliy Tymoshchuk and Diego Contento are likely to deputise for Badstuber and Alaba respectively. Thomas Muller should get a recall to the starting XI, with Toni Kroos dropping into a deeper midfield role alongside Bastian Schweinsteiger. Chelsea will have defenders David Luiz and Gary Cahill available for selection, with the duo appearing to be winning their fitness battles following hamstring injuries. The news will come as a boost to interim boss Roberto Di Matteo, as regular defenders John Terry and Branislav Ivanovic are serving suspensions along with Ramires and Raul Meireles.
