Bayern Munich sign Liverpool star

The German champions have reportedly agreed on a transfer worth about 40 million euros (NZ$67 million), including add-ons, for the 30-year-old, who had a year left on his Liverpool contract.

Mane leaves Anfield after 269 appearances, having scored 120 goals in all competitions, a stellar return that helped the club to the Champions League title in 2018-19 and the Premier League crown a season later.

Bayern Munich win Champions League opener

Liverpool beat Ajax Amsterdam 1-0 away with a fortunate own goal, riding their luck at times but still showing their title credentials.

Manchester City came from behind to make a winning start in their group opener with a 3-1 victory over Porto at the Etihad Stadium.

Shakhtar Donetsk pulled off the shock of the opening games with a 3-2 win over 13-times champions Real Madrid.


Bayern Munich claim sixth Champions League title

France international Coman appeared at the back post to head home in the 59th minute, completing a sweeping move from Bayern.

Coman's strike secured a treble for the Germans and punished PSG's wastefulness in the first half as Neymar and Kylian Mbappe both failed to beat Bayern keeper Manuel Neuer from close range.

PSG were playing in their first European Cup final after billions of euros of investment from the Qatar royal family but they fell short on the final step to glory.

Bayern 1 Arsenal 1 (2-3 pens)

Wednesday's International Champions Cup fixture followed the pattern of many of their Champions League meetings as Bayern were utterly dominant, but Robert Lewandowski's eighth-minute penalty was all they had to show with Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech turning in a wonderful display.

James Rodriguez saw five chances at a first Bayern goal repelled by the veteran goalkeeper, whose efforts were rewarded in the 94th minute when Alex Iwobi headed home after a fine Arsenal move.

Ronaldo would cause rifts at Bayern

Ronaldo was loosely linked with the Bundesliga champions after reports emerged of his apparent unhappiness in Madrid due to Spanish tax authorities launching an investigation into claims of impropriety - allegations the player denies.

But, while conceding recruiting someone of Ronaldo's ability would be a dream from a playing perspective, Hitzfeld, who guided Bayern to five Bundesliga titles across two spells in charge, also outlined the problems it could cause to team unity.
