Bayern Munich Rumors
Soccer’s appeal in America is bleeding into basketball territory. Harrison Barnes and DeMarcus Cousins kicked a soccer ball around with a few stars from soccer club FC Bayern in a Vine video posted by USA Basketball. Barnes and Cousins met Bayern’s Xabi Alonso, Franck Ribery and and Javi Martinez since both teams are in Chicago this week for exhibition games.
Tibor Pleiss denied on Facebook that he will leave FC Barcelona. The German big man said that he has no deals in place with Bayern Munich. “Before people spread more nonsense. There’s no truth in the rumour that I’ll go to FC Bayern. I am very confortable in Barcelona. There’s no reason for me to engage with other clubs” Pleiss wrote.
