Report: Man City Prepare Summer Move for Borussia Dortmund's Julian Weigl

Manchester City is believed to be weighing-up a summer swoop for Borussia Dortmund midfielder enforcer Julian Weigl - but will have to pay a least £40m to secure the services of the German international.

As reported by the Mirror, City boss Pep Guardiola is already looking ahead to next summer's transfer market, and is looking for a midfield enforcer to provide additional support to his defence - and Weigl has been identified as the perfect candidate for the job. However, BVB won't let the 22-year-old leave on the cheap, and will push for at least £40m if they are to sell.

Weigl made a name for himself as a youngster at 1860 Munich, before being snapped up by BVB in 2015. The 6ft 2' powerhouse has developed rapidly since making the step up, and is now widely considered as one of the most talented young midfielders in the country. Weigl is likely to be in Germany's 2018 World Cup squad, as they look to retain their 2014 title.

The robust midfielder has been an integral part of a solid season for BVB thus far, with Die Schwarzgelben currently sitting just a point away from second place in Bundesliga with a game in hand. While Bayern Munich look to be running away with the title, the five sides bellow them are separated by just two points, in what is set to be a thrilling race for Champions League qualification.

Meanwhile Man City will be looking to avoid an FA Cup upset on Monday night, when they travel to League One high-flyers Wigan Athletic. The Latics have already claimed the Premier League scalps of Bournemouth and West Ham United so far in the cup, and City will need to keep their wits about them if they're to safely progress to the quarter-final.

Lewandowski Penalty Ensures Dramatic Comeback Win for Bayern Munich

Runaway Bundesliga leaders Bayern Munich came from behind to beat Wolfsburg in a dramatic encounter at the Volkswagen Arena on Saturday.

Bayern were shocked on eight minutes when Yunus Malli picked out Daniel Didavi with a good cross following a short corner, and he headed past Sven Ulreich to make it 1-0 to the home side.

The defending champions dominated possession in the first half despite going behind, however they could not produce in the final third until the 43rd minute, when Franck Ribery rattled the woodwork. The Bavarians then went into half time trailing despite their dominant possession.

Bayern were controversially awarded a penalty in the 52nd minute, when Corentin Tolisso was brought down as Renato Steffen was shielding the ball. Arjen Robben stepped up to take the penalty kick, but saw his effort saved by Koen Casteels.

Thomas Muller came off Bayern’s star-studded bench and had an instant impact in the 63rd minute as he played a great ball through to Robben, who showed great pace to run down the flank and deliver an excellent ball to Sandro Wagner - who headed in the Bavarians’ equalizer.

In the 80th minute, Robert Lewandowski was brought on to replace Wagner as Bayern looked to push for the winning goal.

They were then awarded a stoppage time penalty - much to the dismay of the Wolfsburg players - and Lewandowski made no mistake in converting and giving the defending champions the win.
