Bayern Munich

Bayern Munich has completed the signing of Sadio Mane from Liverpool in a deal worth up to $42m. Mane had just one year remaining on his contract at Anfield and departs following the club-record signing of Uruguay striker Darwin Nunez from Benfica. In his 269 appearances for the English side, Mane scored 120 goals and offered 48 assists. During his stay, he won the Premier League, the Champions League, FIFA Club World Cup, UEFA Super Cup, FA Cup and Carabao Cup. He is priced at -140 with the latest soccer odds to score over 15½ goals in the first season for the German giants.

Bundesliga: Top 2022 Summer Transfers and Extensions

Besides the Senegalese star, Bayern Munich signed two other important players from Ajax: midfielder Ryan Gravenberch, who won three Eredivisie titles and played 10 times for his country, and Morocco international Noussair Mazraoui. The latter will provide another option at right-back for Julian Nagelsmann, where he will compete with France international Benjamin Pavard for a spot on the team.

Bayern captain and goalkeeper Manuel Neuer signed a one-year contract extension on Monday that will keep him with the club until 2024. Neuer is one of the best goalkeepers in the world and has been setting the standard around the world for years. It’s a huge achievement to be so consistently world-class for such a long time.


Dortmund has finished as Bundesliga runners-up six times, including last season, since last winning the league in 2011-12 under Jurgen Klopp. An impressive summer recruitment drive, however, suggests that they have the power to compete with the Bavarian team for the domestic title.

Dortmund looks prepared for life after Erling Haaland, having agreed on a deal for Salzburg’s Karim Adeyemi. The way he plays football is spectacular and will cause murmurs on the Yellow Wall. He will be a forward that people will talk about a lot over the next few years. Like Haaland two years ago, Adeyemi now moves on from Austria’s double winner to Dortmund and he will remain in Germany for the next five years.

Wait, there’s more. Dortmund has signed Sebastien Haller from Ajax for a club-record transfer fee of $31 million, plus bonuses. The Ivory Coast international has signed a four-year deal, moving to the Bundesliga for the second time in his career after a spell with Eintracht Frankfurt between 2017 and 2019. Finding adequate replacements for star attackers is something that Dortmund has been particularly good at in recent years and Haller is the perfect replacement for Haaland.

Germany international center-back Nico Schlotterbeck who enjoyed a breakthrough season in 2021-22 while playing for Freiburg, has agreed on terms on a five-year deal through 2027 with Dortmund. He is set to form part of a new-look back line alongside fellow center-back Niklas Süle, who joined from Bayern Munich. Schlotterbeck made 30 top-flight appearances for Christian Streich’s side last term, forming a key part of their top-six finish. He scored four goals and offered one assist and he has contributed to 10 clean sheets for Freiburg.

Eintracht Frankfurt

Mario Gotze is back in the Bundesliga. The 2021-22 Europa League winners announced the signing of the 30-year-old scorer of Germany’s 2014 World Cup-winning goal. The Eagles were able to sign the player for just $4 million thanks to an exit clause in Gotze’s contract. The fact that a player like him has chosen Eintracht speaks about the brilliant image that the club has built over the past few years.

With Filip Kostić and Daichi Kamada potentially leaving, the Eagles needed a creative midfielder, an element of surprise in an attack that was very much built around a strong wing play and quick counter-attack.

Eintracht Frankfurt and Leverkusen have reached an agreement over the transfer of Lucas Alario. The center-forward has signed a deal valid until 30 June 2025 in Frankfurt, having previously registered 58 goals and 16 assists in 164 appearances during his five-year stay in Leverkusen. In the German top-flight league, Alario has scored 42 times in 126 outings, giving the 29-year-old an average ratio of exactly one goal every three games.

If you’re betting online, he is a player to watch. and if you love your props, he is a player to bet on. Over the last few years, he’s regularly demonstrated his prowess in front of goal, and he is already familiar with the Bundesliga.

Other Notable Bundesliga Transfers

Adam Hlozek to Leverkusen has been one of the more interesting transfers of this summer window. The 19-year-old Czech striker will join Die Werkself in a deal worth $14.3 million initially. He can be dangerous as a supporting striker, as central-forward, but also on the wing.

Xaver Schlager has swapped Wolfsburg for Bundesliga rivals RB Leipzig. The Austria international midfielder has signed a four-year deal. He made 81 appearances across all competitions for Wolfsburg, including 69 in the Bundesliga, and he’s a clever box-to-box player.

After enjoying five seasons with Gladbach, Matthias Ginter returned home to Freiburg, which will play in the European competitions next season. His reliability and positional versatility won him plenty of compliments over the years.

The German Bundesliga kicks off on Aug. 5 with reigning champions Bayern Munich traveling to play Eintracht Frankfurt.
