FC Bayern, News: Lothar Matthäus believes in Mané sale
Lothar Matthäus has spoken to the South African television station Great sports flash about the future of last year’s star transfer from FC Bayern Munich.

In any case, the record national player does not believe in Mané’s long-term stay in Munich. “I think the relationship between Bayern Munich and Mané is over after the game at the weekend,” he explained, “Bayern will find a way to make him happy.” He also has a firm idea for the vacated squad place: it should be used “for a young player”.
FC Bayern, News: Daniil Medvedev keeps his fingers crossed
Before Daniil Medvedev tackles the mission of a second Grand Slam title in Paris, the tennis professional will focus on the championship race in the Bundesliga. “I train at two, so I can at least see the second half.

But the FCB women also have to do their homework for this. With a win on Sunday (2:00 p.m.) against the already relegated bottom Turbine Potsdam, the Munich team can secure the championship title for the fifth time in a long-distance duel with VfL Wolfsburg.
“The motivation is of course incredibly high. It’s about becoming a champion or not,” said Bühl.

FC Bayern Munich: Expected line-up on matchday 34
Summer – Pavard, Upamecano, de Ligt, João Cancelo – Kimmich, Goretzka – Coman, Müller, Musiala – Gnabry
After the weak performance against Leipzig, Dayot Upamecano could move into the defensive chain for Noussair Mazraoui. In addition, Serge Gnabry should probably be in demand again as a center forward after the attempt with Thomas Müller went wrong. He is expected to join Kingsley Coman and Jamal Musiala behind Gnabry, but Leroy Sané could also play for one of them.
