    Vidal will 'definitely be back on board' before Arsenal clash, announce Bayern

    Bayern Munich have allayed fears midfielder Arturo Vidal could miss next month's Champions League round-of-16 clash with Arsenal at the Allianz Arena. Vidal is nursing a rib injury he sustained during the Telekom Cup final on January 14, when Bayern beat Mainz 2-1, and he was forced off early in the second half of Friday's Bundesliga triumph by the same score versus Freiburg. Vidal hoping to be ready for Arsenal The 29-year-old Chile international said after the match he expected to be out for "at least two or three weeks", with his availability to face Arsene Wenger's side on February 15 up in the air. But Bayern reported on their official website that Vidal would "definitely be back on board" for the home match with Schalke on February 4, while his participation in this weekend's trip to Werder Bremen "is still open". The ex-Juventus man trained on Monday and a statement from Bayern read: "Vidal will be on a reduced schedule for the next few days and will also be treated by the FCB medical staff. "A decision about his return to team training will be taken on a day-by-day basis."

    Leverkusen duo's hilarious 'Salt Bae' celebration

    Hakan Calhanoglu and Omer Toprak celebrated Bayer Leverkusen's 3-1 win over Hertha Berlin with a funny tribute to one of the internet's most popular memes of early 2017. Calhanoglu scored twice in the victory to move Leverkusen up to eighth in the table as the Bundesliga season resumed after the mid-season break. VIDEO: Rod Stewarts performance at Scottish Cup draw He joined up with his Turkish team-mate to celebrate his goals and pay tribute to compatriot Nusret Gokce, the chef who has become a viral sensation known as 'Salt Bae' after a video of him sprinkling salt onto a steak became an online hit. Gokce's salt sprinkling has been copied by many followers and fans around the world, with Calhanoglu and Toprak the latest to join in on the craze. The Leverkusen duo's tender tribute was well-done, but with 17 games left in the Bundesliga season, they know there's still a lot at stake.

    Liverpool target Pulisic commits to Dortmund until 2020

    Christian Pulisic has penned a three-and-a-half-year deal with Borussia Dortmund, to put rumours of a move to Liverpool to rest. Official: BVB sign 'new Ibra' Isak The United States international has enjoyed a breakthrough campaign at Signal Iduna Park, making 19 appearances in all competitions and scoring twice. His season has been littered with links to Liverpool, but Dortmund bosses have long maintained that they intended to tie the 18-year-old to fresh terms. And they have done just that, with Pulisic signing a new deal that will keep him at Dortmund until 2020. "I still have a lot to learn," Pulisic said in a statement. "Here at Dortmund are the best conditions for me. "Here I have the chance to play in front of 80,000 fans. We have the best fans in the world, it could not be better."

Juni 2020 // Christian Pulisic has extended his contract until 30 June 2020. #22until2020 #bvb pic.twitter.com/YuyHYb7ptE — Borussia Dortmund (@BVB) January 23, 2017 Pulisic's standout performance this term came as a second-half substitute against Ingolstatdt, setting up a goal for Adrian Ramos before scoring a stoppage-time equaliser in a thrilling 3-3 draw. The race for the Golden Shoe Shelling points in games like that has left Thomas Tuchel's side fourth in the Bundesliga - 12 points adrift of Bayern Munich at the top. However, the future in Westphalia is bright, with Pulisic's extension confirmed on the same day that Alexander Isak was signed from under the noses of Real Madrid and after Julian Weigl committed his future to the club. Weigl recently extended his deal until 2021 in the face of reported interest from the Santiago Bernabeu. "We are very happy to have secured the future of another talented player after Julian Weigl," sporting director Michael Zorc said. "Christian is already an important figure in the team and, like Julian Weigl, will become a cornerstone of our sporting future."

    'I feel bad' - Vidal fears longer lay-off but could return against Arsenal

    Arturo Vidal's rib injury could sideline him for up to three weeks, placing the Bayern Munich midfielder in doubt to face Arsenal in the last-16 of the Champions League. The Chile international sustained the problem in the Telekom Cup final on January 14, where Bayern defeated Mainz 2-1. Lewa nets 135th Bundesliga goal Vidal did start against Freiburg as the champions returned to Bundesliga action with a 2-1 success on Friday, but he could not complete 90 minutes and was forced off early in the second half. Carlo Ancelotti's side face the Gunners in the first leg of the tie at the Allianz Arena on February 15, and Vidal has his sights set on that meeting as a potential date for his return. "I feel bad and have severe pain on the rib. Now I will have to pause, because I cannot play," he told TZ. 'Man City simply not as good as Bayern' "I already missed training for a week, but now it should take at least two or three weeks. "[I will see] how I feel for the last 16 in the Champions League."

    OFFICIAL: Borussia Dortmund sign 'next Zlatan' Isak

    Borussia Dortmund have completed the signing of AIK striker Alexander Isak, widely dubbed as 'the next Zlatan Ibrahimovic', on a "long-term deal". Aubameyang won't rule out summer exit The teenager is regarded as one of the most promising in Europe, having made his debut at AIK as a 16-year-old and quickly establishing himself in Rikard Norling's starting line-up. Real Madrid were heavily linked with Isak, who reportedly shares an agent with Luka Modric, with a €10 million transfer being close to completion before Dortmund made their move. Borussia Dortmund verpflichtet Alexander Isak // Borussia Dortmund sign striker Alexander Isak #welcomeisak #bvb pic.twitter.com/TCBIqGfhOv — Borussia Dortmund (@BVB) 23 January 2017 Hjärtligt välkommen, Alexander Isak! #welcomeisak #bvb Alle Infos: https://t.co/ZadYC8FTSX pic.twitter.com/GObv1G803Z — Borussia Dortmund (@BVB) 23 January 2017 "Alexander Isak is a hugely-talented striker, who many top clubs in Europe wanted to sign," sporting director Michael Zorc said in a statement. "We are delighted that he has chosen Borussia Dortmund. Both BVB and the player himself are convinced that this transfer has great potential." The club added: "Due to the fact that Isak is still a minor, the completion of the transfer still requires special approval by world football’s governing body FIFA, which all parties expect to receive very soon." Isak, who turns 18 in September and has reportedly signed a contract until 2022, had 13 goals in 29 games for AIK this season and recently became Sweden's youngest ever goalscorer.
