    Just browsing sports news there and the german FA, with Bayern Munich leading the way, are spearheading UEFA's salary cap for European competitions.

    Great idea in theory but don't see many clubs go for it especially England.

    Bayern Munich are preparing to submit a joint proposal with the German FA on introducing salary caps in UEFA member competitions.

    The proposal could bring about a more level playing field across Europe as Bundesliga clubs struggle to keep pace with growing player wages and transfer fees.

    Fritz Keller, president of the German FA (DFB) has held talks with Bayern chief executive Karl-Heinz Rummenigge and the cooperation has led to a proposal penned to European football's governing body.

    Keller said: "There are absurd salaries and transfer fees that are no longer credible.

    "We have to talk about salary caps. I am glad that I agree with Karl-Heinz Rummenigge on this point.

    Therefore, we will write a letter to UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin."

    The proposals could lead to a more even keel across European football which would be good news to Scottish clubs such as Celtic and Rangers in European competition.
