    Kerry Hau reporting that Inter have agreed a fee with Bayern for Pavard (€30m + €3m in add-ons) but Bayern will only release Pavard once they've found a replacement.

    Bayern want to replace him with Geertruida from Feyenoord.

    Why would UEFA take them in as new members? The only UEFA members outside of Europe are FAs from former Soviet Union republics who were considered as members of UEFA by default after Soviet Union collapsed, and Israel, for obvious reasons.

    Plus Turkey, its lion share of territory is geographically in Asia.

    Isn't this also a reason why teams move players around a lot? It's a pretty new thing for US sports, but I've always gotten the impression top teams in Europe shop players around in part so they can bring in dudes who are fresher. I don't think it's the main reason why you see so much more movement, but I'd guess it's a consideration. 

    Partly yes, but for all kinds of reasons. They might not fit in, they might want to leave themselves due to lack of playing time, or they earn too much just to sit on the bench. For every financial, sporting or human wise aspect possible.
