Rummenigge confirms Guerreiro transfer

Bayern Munich supervisory board member Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has casually informed about the signing of Raphaël Guerreiro on the sidelines of the Champions League final in Istanbul between Manchester City and Inter Milan. » We got good players with Guerreiro and Laimer," said the 67-year-old at Dazn.

The transfer of midfielder Konrad Laimer from league rivals RB Leipzig on a free transfer was made public by the German football record champions on Friday. FC Bayern was previously interested in Dortmund's Guerreiro, the 2016 European champion with Portugal. Various media reported in the middle of the week that details still need to be clarified. The 29-year-old left winger's contract with BVB expires, he is considered the desired player of Bayern coach Thomas Tuchel. The two had already worked together during Tuchel's tenure in Dortmund.

Aston Villa sign Tielemans

Waldschmidt to move to Cologne

Former national player Luca Waldschmidt could move from VfL Wolfsburg to 1. This was reported by the »Kicker«. Accordingly, a loan deal for the 27-year-old attacker is in the room. Waldschmidt moved from Benfica to Wolfsburg in 2021 for twelve million euros.

At VfL, however, the former Freiburg player never really arrived. Last season, Waldschmidt played only four times from the start and scored a total of only four goals in 18 appearances this season. Cologne are looking for a versatile striker.

Bosz new coach in Eindhoven

Former Bundesliga coach Peter Bosz is to become the new coach of PSV Eindhoven, according to Dutch media reports. As reported by the »Eindhovens Dagblad« and the broadcaster NOS, the cup winner is close to signing the 59-year-old. Accordingly, Bosz is to receive a contract until 2026 as the successor to Ruud van Nistelrooy.

Bosz had coached Borussia Dortmund and Bayer Leverkusen in the Bundesliga. Subsequently, he was coach of Olympique Lyon in France and has been without a club since October 2022. PSV Eindhoven are looking for a new coach after van Nistelrooy surprisingly announced his resignation one matchday before the end of the championship. As runners-up last season behind Feyenoord Rotterdam, Eindhoven is playing in the Champions League qualifiers.
