  • Dortmund thrash Man United.
  • Schürrle joins BVB from Wolfsburg.
  • Wolves bring in Real's Mayoral on loan.

Bundesliga Daily rounds up all you need to know from Germany's 18 top-flight clubs. On 22 July, Borussia Dortmund vanquished Premier League opposition in Shanghai, Andre Schürrle made his move and VfL Wolfsburg recruited a Real Madrid CF gem.

Dortmund's Shanghai stars

Gonzalo Castro (2), Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Ousmane Dembele grabbed the goals as Dortmund chalked up an impressive 4-1 victory over Manchester United FC in the first outing of their pre-season tour of China. Former BVB midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan was on target for the Red Devils, but the goal did little to take the shine off a hugely encouraging display from last season's Bundesliga runners-up.

Schürrle joins BVB

Shortly before kick-off in Shanghai, Dortmund announced the signing of Andre Schürrle from VfL Wolfsburg. The 25-year-old has signed a five-year deal and takes his place in an electric-looking forward line alongside the likes of Aubameyang, Dembele, Mario Götze, FIFA17 cover star Marco Reus and USMNT starlet Christian Pulisic.

Wolves loan Mayoral

Not long after confirmation of Schürrle's move to BVB broke, Wolfsburg announced the one-year loan signing of Real Madrid CF striker Borja Mayoral. The 19-year-old, who says UEFA Champions League qualification is the priority for the Wolves in 2016/17, will join up with his new team-mates at their training camp in Bad Ragaz, Switzerland on Saturday.

Bayern still the world's no.1

And last but by no means least, FC Bayern München remain the biggest club in world football, with a staggering 277,000 members - an increase of 7,000 since November 2015. "I'm delighted at the ongoing excitement about our club," beamed Bayern president Karl Hopfner. "[Hopefully] more and more Bayern fans will express their identification with the club by becoming members in the future."
