Real Madrid will start their rebuild this summer after a rather disappointing (by their standards) season and Zinedine Zidane is supposedly interested in Jadon Sancho. According to Bild Zidane has asked Florentino Perez to sign Dortmund young star. Despite continuous claims from Watzke and Zorc that Sancho is not for sale the outlet reports that Dortmund might be willing to listen to offers if they were in the region of 180€ million.

Borussia Dortmund are interested in Brazilian talent Reinier, the 17-year-old midfielder from Flamengo is one the biggest talents in the world in his age group. According to the report Flamengo would ask 30€ million for their youngster.

BVB are always on the lookout for the next young star and Reinier would certainly fir the profile but it seems outlandish to think that the club would essentially pay close it’s transfer record for an unproven talent.

  • Bayern Munich vs RB Leipzig

Since its introduction VAR had a fair share of questionable calls and another one was added yesterday that got Bayern Munich their place in the final of the DFB Cup.

Bremen had to claw back from a two-goal deficit and did so in miraculous fashion to tie the game against the favored Bavarians, it looked like the game would go into extra time but referee Daniel Siebert had other plans.

In the 80th minute Bayern got a penalty because of a supposed foul from Gebre Selassie on Coman. The replays showed that there was some contact but not to a degree where a penalty should be awarded but to the surprise of everybody VAR did not only not overturn the call but it did not even send the referee to the sideline to check for himself if it was a correct call.

To make matters worse several of Bremen’s players revealed after the game that Siebert told them that Gebre Selassie tripped Coman up with his feet but there was never any contact in such a manner.

In the end Lewandowski converted the penalty which set up a DFB Cup final between Bayern Munich and RB Leipzig.
