Surprise on Tuesday morning when the first rumours surfaced: Bayern Munich have purchased Serge Gnabry from Arsenal for about €8 million. He will be loaned out to Werder Bremen right after to replace the injured Max Kruse.
Following the completion of the UEFA Champions League playoff rounds on Tuesday and Wednesday, the group stage was drawn in Monaco today. Bayern Munich will play against the likes of Atlético de Madrid, PSV and Rostov.
FC Bayern's 6:0 win is not the first impressive one against Bremen and it may not be the the last. The way the Bavarians triumphed, though, deserves our attention because it will have future consequences.
