    The German basketball League gavavave a statement that all sort of political statements, including those in support of the recent protests are forbidden. No wonder the League is borderline irrelevant in Europe. Absolute idiots.

    I don't want to be "that guy", but Brescia has been running mostly on loaned money for about half a decade. You can demand a lot of committment from the players, but if i would have to guess, i would say that they are not getting paid on time, if at all right now.

    It's not being talked about a lot, but even in Spain, a lot of players are owed checks still not paid out. And that's before the coronavirus crisis.

    That’s a bargain price for Werner. We should be in on that

    I disagree. Not because of quality, i just think he's a weeny.

    Jesus CORONA scores Porto's first goal as Portugal's top flight resumes. :D

    However, Porto lost the match so now Benfica has control of their own destiny. Good title race!

    I have a huge amount of mistrust for good German players Bayern won't touch.

    I agree, lots of players have been brought from Bundesliga and have failed even for PL clubs

    Bayern have made some mistakes on the pricing of players (Kroos, Sane in hindsight), but i am very careful when they step away from a player because of other issues.

    The best PL player at the moment, Kevin De Bruyne, developed in the Bundesliga. Plenty other successes too. Firmino, Son, Gundogan, Ozil

    I get it that it’s a worse league and I have my reservations about Werner as well, but every player that makes it to the top started in a crappier league.

    I don't think Werner is top class. Bayern probably didn't want another Podolski.

    I agree with 4x4s. Bet Bayern saving that money for Havertz who looks like world class talent. They don't really miss out on top German talent. Sane probably because Pep convinced him to join City using the reputation he gained in Germany. Journos were even crediting him for 2014 World Cup win. Just like with Spain though Aragones won Euro 2008 when Pep was a lower division coach.

    If we're looking at a German forward, Havertz is the way to go. Strong, physical, technical, and versatile. Really seems ready to be one of the best players in the world at some point. Getting him would probably mean no Haaland and depending on the price and salary, I don't think there is a gulf in quality between the two if any.

    That's Kroos level salary. Kroos - 10 ME nett, Jovic - 6 ME.

    American owners usually doesn't spend like oil clubs. They are in it to make money. Besides, Boston Red Sox must be their first priority.

    It’s intersting that you’re considering him a forward, I’ve heard he’s being played as a striker right now for Bayer, but I always thought he was an attacking midfielder. Has he transitioned his role or was he never really a mid?
