Though the Transfer Tavern is usually full of football talk, let’s not forget there is a larger world out there, one that sometimes finds its way into the famous four halls.

German champions Bayern Munich have tweeted their feelings on the matter, aptly describing the parting as the ‘saddest breakup between Poldi & Schweni’.
The two German legends endured long international careers together, winning over 100 caps each and the World Cup in 2014.

It’s a shame their paths never crossed in England, with Podolski leaving Arsenal prior to Schweinsteiger’s arrival at Manchester United.
