  • Bundesliga transfers

Let's take a look at a few transfers and rumors in the Bundesliga:

Corentin Tolisso is now the record-transfer of the Bundesliga with a fee of 41.5€ million. The 22-year-old French midfielder will join Bayern München this summer and probably replace Xabi Alonso who retired at the end of the season. Tolisso signed a 5-year contract with the Bavarians. He is a solid signing for Bayern who look to get younger at every position to replace their aging stars. Tolisso is the fourth signing for our rivals this summer joining Niklas Süle, Sebastian Rudy (both TSG Hoffenheim) and Serge Gnabry (Werder Bremen).

RB Leipzig have confirmed the transfer of promising young winger Bruma from Galatasaray. The 22-year-old Portuguese left winger signed a 5-year contract and will cost the Red Bulls 12.5€ million. Bruma will add depth to a very young squad that will have to play in three competitions for the first time in the clubs history.

Will Kuba play in the MLS? Rumors suggest that Jakub Blaszczykowski will leave Wolfsburg this summer with a move to the MLS and Chicago Fire being rumored. VfL Wolfsburg are in the middle of a rebuilding process and a 31-year-old Kuba does not seem to fit into the plans of the club anymore. Teaming up with Bastian Schweinsteiger in Chicago might be a good idea for Kuba in the twilight of his career.

  • What happens with Auba?

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang looked as good as gone a few weeks ago but now everything seems a bit unclear. PSG changed their sporting director and if rumors are to be believed, they aren't as keen on signing Auba anymore. Since a move to England seems to be ruled out, no Spanish clubs interested and Italian clubs either don't need him (Juventus) or have already bought a striker (AC Milan) there seem to be no real options for Auba anymore. A move to China is still possible but at this point it seems likely that Aubameyang will stay in Dortmund. According to kicker Dortmund haven't given Auba an ultimatum for a decision but they would like to have an answer by the end of June. In addition BVB would ask more than the reported 70€ million fee that has been rumored.

Daily Buzz: Bayern signed some interesting players so far but they lost Lahm and Alonso. Do you expect them to be better or worse next season?
