Headlines
The first major transfer news of the offseason is starting to trickle in. Bayer Munich have made a capture of Mats Hummels from their Bundesliga rivals Borussia Dortmund. The Dortmund captain will head to the German champions after passing a medical, but no transfer fee has been agreed upon. Hummels is returning to the club that loaned him out to Dortmund in 2008. Bayern Munich have also brought in 18-year-old Benfica midfielder Renato Sanches.

Mark Clattenburg has been selected as the referee for the UEFA Champions League final on May 28 in Milan. The Englishman has officiated six Champions League matches so far this season, including three involving either Real Madrid or Atletico Madrid. Clattenburg will also take charge of the May 21 FA Cup Final between Manchester United and Crystal Palace. The main knock agaisnt him is that he missed Mousa Dembele's eye attack on Diego Costa that resulted in a six game suspension for the Tottenham midfielder.

Kei Kamara and the Columbus Crew are not exactly getting along right now. The Cameroonian striker has been suspended one game after arguing with teammate Federico Higuain about taking a penalty and then speaking out about his disappointment in the team after the Crew blew a 4-1 lead on Saturday. The word is that Columbus is going to try and trade him away before the MLS trade deadline on Thursday.
