This has been one of the worst seasons for Bundesliga clubs in the Champions League. It looks like only one German club will advance to the knockout stage. Why are they underperforming in Europe?
The transfer window is well underway. After Bayern Munich signed yet another Bundesliga star and Borussia Dortmund negotiate the departure of a star striker, a young talent has left BVB.
Borussia Dortmund fell flat once again as they traveled to face Hertha Berlin. Jadon Sancho was a rare positive in a 1-1 draw and Dortmund's youth policy could fall apart without a revamped transfer strategy.
Following concerns from its top brass that the Bundesliga is in danger of losing its place among Europe's elite leagues, a new UEFA report may well prompt fresh doubts. But there is also room for optimism.
Ex-Borussia Dortmund footballer Henrikh Mkhitaryan is headed to Premier League side Arsenal in a swap deal with Manchester United. Meanwhile, former Bundesliga star Kevin De Bruyne inked a new deal with Manchester City.
