Wolfsburg are not worried about Kevin De Bruyne's commitment despite the Belgium international saying his future was uncertain, sporting executive Klaus Allofs has said.

Four straight Bundesliga titles a big challenge for Bayern

The ESPN FC crew discusses Arturo Vidal's move to Bayern Munich and the impact he will have at the Allianz Arena under Pep Guardiola.

Before opening the season on August 14, Bayern Munich are overwhelming favourites to win an historic fourth straight Bundesliga title success. The record German champions won three consecutive titles in the 1970's, 80's and 90's. Given that Bayern have amassed Bundesliga 24 titles in only 52 attempts, perhaps it's an opportune time to ask why the Bavarian machine has found four in a row so elusive.

Schalke reject bid for Julian Draxler, shut door on talks with Juventus

Julian Draxler will stay with Schalke after Juventus' bid came up short.

Schalke have rejected a bid from Juventus for Julian Draxler and said they do not intend to entertain any more offers from the Italian champions.

Juve presented that offer to Schalke on Monday, but the Gelsenkirchen club's sporting director rejected it out of hand.

"I can confirm that we received an offer late this afternoon...
