By the numbers - Zinchenko unbeaten in 23, Grealish loses 20 straight

What a weekend of football. 

In England, Chelsea clung on for a point against a rampant Leicester City, Liverpool battled their way to a tough away win at Southampton, Arsenal beat Burnley and a VAR-aided Tottenham Hotspur held Manchester City.

In Spain, Barcelona lost to an incredible Aritz Aduriz goal at Athletic Bilbao, while Real Madrid won handsomely at Celta Vigo. In Germany, Bayern Munich drew at home against Hertha Berlin while Borussia Dortmund dismantled Augsburg in front of the Yellow...

Transfer window: Cavani, Willian, Matic, Silva lead top 2020 free agents

Some big names are available on a free transfer in summer 2020 from Europe's biggest clubs if they don't put pen to paper soon. Here are the top players, with the help of Transfermarkt.

Edinson Cavani (PSG)

Edinson Cavani failed to get a move in January.

The Uruguay striker was close to joining Atletico Madrid in the winter window, but PSG's demands for €20m scuppered the deal. Now he'll have his pick of clubs in the summer and will likely still choose Atleti, although they might have other plans to boost their strikeforce by then.

Hummels returns to Dortmund: a perfect fit that could unsettle Bayern

Mats Hummels still has plenty left to offer in a top club's defense, but will Bayern regret letting him leave so easily for their biggest and strongest rival?

Why? The obvious and indeed most accurate answer is that all three parties felt that Mats Hummels' move back to Borussia Dortmund from FC Bayern Munich was in their interest. But that tells us nothing about how each of them arrived here, and then quickly found an agreement that would have seemed beyond the realm of fantasy a few months ago.

Borussia's thought process is relatively easy to explain. The main reason that last season's runners-up failed to win the league was their young defence's...

Inside Union Berlin's raucous two-day promotion party after reaching Bundesliga for first time

Union Berlin's promotion party lasted two days, culminating in a raucous celebration at their 20,000-capacity stadium on the east side of the city.

BERLIN, Germany -- Union Berlin's first-ever promotion to Bundesliga has given fresh hope to a lot of football fans across Germany. Last Wednesday, a two-day marathon of a party ended at Die Alte Försterei, the club's unique stadium sat in the woods of Berlin's district of Köpenick, following a nearly 10-mile open-boat tour from the heart of the German capital to the club's home ground.

Football has had more problems of late in Germany and across Europe. Bayern Munich have won seven...

Dortmund have signed Hazard, Brandt and Schulz but what else is needed to unseat Bayern?

Borussia Dortmund are acutely aware that they've just missed the biggest chance in years to wrest the Bundesliga title away from Bayern Munich. But where some might see failure, Dortmund are determined to treat their second-place finish as a platform to go one better next season. A €75 million transfer blitz of three signings in two days last week was timed to provide their fans with plenty of optimism going into the summer break.

The three signings represent two different types of rationale....
