Franck Ribery may not be the best player in world football, but his club Bayern Munich can certainly lay claim to being the best team within the sport at this moment in time.
Yet, such a claim hasn't stopped the Bavarian juggernauts from continuing on with its business this January with signings in and out of the club aplenty.
The first was Jan Kirchhoff, the young central defensive midfielder, who has now left to join Schalke on loan for 18 months. That was swiftly followed by the high-profile announcement that Borussia Dortmund star striker Robert Lewandowski had signed a pre-contract with the Munich side and would be moving in the summer.
Last week, we also received confirmation from the German press stating that Eintracht Frankfurt youngster Sebastian Rode would also be signing a pre-contract with the club, but Bayern have yet to confirm such a rumour.
Here are your rumours and all the transfer news regarding Bayern Munich this week.
