In transfer windows, elite teams generally spend more money than their lesser counterparts. This is due to more success and larger war chests. Bayern Munich has pulled something of a U-turn on that school of thought. The team had to spend a justifiably large wad of cash on AS Roma […]
This is the latest installment of Bayern Munich and Manchester City duel. For many pundits it’s the established against the upcoming or as others say, the serial Champions League finalists up against the group stage enthusiasts. In a sense Bayern Munich are what Manchester City aspire to be – a […]
