I'd be leery however about stating that they have the best youth team, which I guess they do by winning that tournament. I'd be less than convinced they have the best youth prospects, as some of their main prospects Jeffrey Bruna and Mancienne are at least partly warming the bench with Hamburg in the Bundesliga, which isn't exactly at the top of Europe in terms of clubs.

Glad to hear that there is more of a focus on youth in England. That's been sorely lacking in years prior.
spurs have a lot of great prospects coming up, with coulthirst and pritchard both having been scouted by the spanish giants. youth systems are on the way up for england, but I still dont buy that a team like city or chelsea with their system will actually field any of those players

Word is Bayern have reached an agreement with Lewandowski. They're doing the same thing they did 10 years ago when they bought all of Leverkusen's best players (Ballack, Ze Robert, Lucio).
Wonder if anyone wants Gomez now

But hasn't Dortmund defeated them like 5 times in a row. Dortmund has to win b4 the Bundesliga becomes a 1-team league and b4 Gotze leaves to Bayern and Hummels (to Barca?) and Lewa (ManU?City?Chelsea?) leave too.

In other news Carvajal (hopefully crowned the best RB in the Bundesliga) is 99% likely going to return to Real and be the starting RB (+ possibly Espana's too ) next season. Real will activate the buyback clause. I've heard that in good faith Real will loan out Jese to Leverkusen which will be good for him, Real and Leverkusen. Negredo or Soldado might go to Spurs. Negredo is cheaper and has been part of the national setup. Soldado has more UCL experience although has had some attitude issues but will cost more.
