As Bayern Munich cheer in the end of the year with five trophies to their name, following the weekend trip to Monaco to pick up the World Club Cup, they return home to Bavaria in southern Germany with the high hopes of some peace and quiet before the new year.
Yet everyone's favourite four weeks of mayhem are poised to make their return in a matter of days as January looms ever closer and with it the constant attention to detail among every rumour that makes its way in to the press across the continent.
For a club such as Bayern, this will be a daunting task as players new and old are linked with moves in and out of the Bavarian club.

So be sure to continue checking this thread as we approach January and throughout the special month.
