    Time for a new thread, seeing how transfer season is shaping up and the season schedules are out.

    Spain dominated last season again, with Real and Atletico winning the European titles, but England is catching up and looking sharper than in almost a decade.

    My title predictions for this season, feel free to add yours:

    CL: PSG
    EL: Sevilla

    Spain: Real Madrid
    England: Man City
    Germany: Bayern
    France: PSG
    Italy: Juve
    Andorra: Sant Juliá (this might result in heated debate).

    News from today: The Sun (Edit: Daily Star as well) are saying Bayern have started direct negotiations with Martial this week, I talked about the breh quite a bit and would really love to see him joining us.

    What is the story behind Sant Julia and is Julia the patroness of the club?

    Salihamidzic was asked about the Martial rumor today and smiled, saying they won't comment on transfer news and will only make an announcement once a transfer is done.

    Kinda intriguing because Bayern usually tend to strongly deny rumors that aren't true, plus his smile and that comment. Am pretty certain this deal will happen soon.

    Ronaldo joining Juventus is heating up. Love it for both parties. Ronaldo can achieve more personal glory in an easier league. Juventus increases their global brand. It would spark more interest in Serie A after it has been pretty dormant for a long time.

    Yeah, but DC won't win a championship just bc of Rooney.

    I think the old Powerhouses have a say in this.

    Looks strongly like Pavard is going to Bayern in 2019 for around 35m€ after playing one more year in Stuttgart. Excellent deal if true. Can play on the wing and in the middle, so a possible replacement for Boateng/Rafinha.

    Damn, half of the French national team could be in Munich soon.

    Kicker saying the deal is rumoured to be already done (I heard the same from some fans weeks ago, someone said it's an open secret in the Stuttgart region), would be nice.
    The Brazzo statements also make me convinced we're signing Martial soon, would give us a nice France connection.

    Bayern seem to have a great rep in France and we somehow always had success with these guys, so guess we'll now turn into FC Germany+France instead of Germany+Spain.

    Higuain to Chelsea for 60mil seems to be done, another step towards the Ronaldo transfer.

    Italian news also saying Ronaldo has been house-hunting for two weeks.

    Great at motivating players and also implementing a modern fitness system etc, but isn't good at strategy and therefore needs a viable co-trainer.
