The new rules come into force this weekend and concern the Bundesliga, the Second and the Third Division as well as the Women’s Championship and the German Cup finals.
Bundesliga: Leroy Sane Returns Home And Signs A 5 Years Deal With Bayern Munich
By Elvis Kang Sports Writer, Cameroon
The German international Leroy Sane returns home and signed 5 years deal with the Bundesliga giant Bayern Munich this Friday 3 July 2020 after a contract talks between him and the management of Manchester city failed to push through
According to Sky Sports and the BBC, the Bundesliga champions did not give the transfer fee, Bayern and City agreed on a fee of £54.8 million. But German daily Bild claim the fee is around 50 million euros.
The 24-year-old spent four years at City, winning two Premier League titles, an FA Cup, two League Cups, and two Community Shields, but European success eluded him.
His transfer became an open secret as Guardiola revealed earlier this week that Sane was likely to leave after rejecting a new contract offer with a year left on his existing deal at City.
Sane scored 39 goals in 135 appearances in all competitions for City after joining from Bundesliga club Schalke in 2016.
His arrival on Wednesday in Bavaria was much hyped with reporters at Munich airport using smartphones to film the landing of a private jet from England before Sane was whisked away for his medical.

It should be noted that He is not eligible to feature in this Saturday’s German Cup final against Bayer Leverkusen in Berlin but will start preparing for the 2020/21 season next week, the club has said.
Sane has 21 caps and five goals for Germany but was a shock omission from the squad for the 2018 World Cup in Russia when the holders bowed out in the group stage.
Sane is Bayern’s third new signing for next season alongside French teenage defender Tanguy Nianzou Kouassi from Paris Saint-Germain and goalkeeper Alexander Nuebel from Schalke, both of which were free transfers.
The Germany Football Board has Cancelled the Yellow Card that Sanctioned Jadon Sancho for Paying Tributes to George Floyd.
The Germany Football Board announced they will remove the yellow card that Sanctioned Jadon Sancho for Paying Tributes to George Floyd. They further declared, they will not punish any player who stands against racism in football.
This comes after FIFA President Gianni Infantino Says Players protesting over George Floyd’s death deserves applause, and not to be punished.
The FIFA boss also emphasized on the fact that leagues should use “common sense” when considering rules prohibiting political slogans, statement or images in games.
Also the European football governing body and the English FA also declared that, they will allow mister Floyd’s tributes when their competitions resume.
Mr. Floyd is a black man and former community college basketball player who died after a white police officer pressed his knee into his neck for several minutes even after he stopped moving and stopped pleading for air.
His death has sparked nationwide protest in the United States and other countries as many call for justice for George Floyd.
Bayern, BVB, Leipzig and Leverkusen pledge €20million
The Bundesliga’s four Champions League clubs have created a coronavirus support fund to aid other German teams struggling financially.
Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund, RB Leipzig and Bayer Leverkusen have vowed to make €20million available to support Bundesliga and 2.Bundesliga clubs struggling financially due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The German football season is on hold at least until April 30 due to the spread of COVID-19, which has infected almost 40,000 people in Germany – the third most-affected European nation.
Suspension of the campaign is set to have major consequences on the finances of many clubs, with the situation forcing some to implement salary cuts or similar measures.
Players of Bundesliga side Union Berlin are waiving their salaries to aid the wider business, but a new approach from Germany’s four Champions League sides should help alleviate the strain on many teams in the top two divisions.
A statement released on Thursday by the German Football League (DFL) confirmed the €20m support fund will be created by the four clubs initially foregoing “their share of the undistributed national media revenue of the DFL in the coming season”.

That figure, which stands at €12.5m, will be supplemented by contributions from the clubs’ own resources.
“This campaign underlines that solidarity in the Bundesliga and 2.Bundesliga is not lip service. The DFL Presidium is very grateful to the four Champions League participants in terms of the community of all clubs,” DFL spokesman Christian Seifert said.
Bayern CEO Karl Heinz Rummenigge added: “Together with the three other Champions League participants, we want to send a signal of solidarity to all clubs in the Bundesliga and 2.Bundesliga with this initiative.
“In these difficult times, it’s important that the stronger shoulders support the weaker shoulders. With this, we also want to show that football is standing together right now.”
The DFL will decide on matters relating to the distribution of the €20m.
