  • Hummels - BVB and Bayern haven’t agreed yet

It was the biggest news of the past weekend, Borussia Dortmund are working on a return of Mats Hummels to the club. However the deal isn’t done just yet even though Dortmund and Hummels have reportedly already agreed on a contract but Bayern still wants more than the reported 20€ million that Dortmund have offered.

According to kicker Dortmund use the fact that Hummels is now almost 31 during negotiations and Bayern paid just 35€ million three years ago while Bayern Munich claim that the market is a lot different than three years ago and prices have gone up. This sounds like the usual negotiations tactics, in the end both clubs will likely find common ground.

Surprisingly it was Mats Hummels himself that asked for a move back to the black and yellows according to Ruhr Nachrichten. In Dortmund he would certainly be a sure starter that can hopefully stabilize the defense and help the young players develop.

  • U17 lose final to Cologne

BVB’s U17 team have lost the final for the German championship with 2:3 against 1.FC Köln. The team went undefeated all season long but could not get it done in a wild final game of the season.

Dortmund were the better team throughout the match but individual mistakes on defense gave Cologne three easy goals that were enough to secure the win. The silver lining for BVB is the extremely talented team that they still have spearheaded by Youssoufa Moukoko who scored 50 goals in just 28 games this season.

  • FIFA Women’s World Cup

In group A the host France will play Nigeria and South Korea play Norway. In this group every team technically still has chances to advance.

  • U21 European championship

One of the biggest tournaments this summer started yesterday, the U21 European championship in Italy. Some of the biggest young talents in Europe are at the tournament and it’s usually a very good indicator which European country will also be a contender at the senior level in the next few years.

Yesterday host Italy drew Spain 1:1 and Belgium surprisingly lost 2:3 to Poland. Today Germany with BVB’s Mahmoud Dahoud will take on Denmark with Jacob Bruun Larsen, in addition Serbia play Austria.
