Manchester United could join Chelsea FC and Paris Saint-Germain in the race for Bayern Munich star Robert Lewandowski:
Manchester United are ready to make a surprise move for Bayern Munich star Robert Lewandowski if Barcelona fail to secure a deal on the line this summer, reports The Sun.
United are reportedly ready to capitalize on their shortcomings and believe they can lure Lewandowski into a similar deal to Cristiano Ronaldo. They could hand him a £400,000-a-week wage package.
Lewandowski has been most closely linked with FC Barcelona, but the Catalan club are struggling financially and may not be able to afford Lewandowski’s planned transfer fee and salary – even if the Poland international takes a hefty cut of salary.
Marc Roca has reportedly rejected two offers from La Liga and could be looking at a transfer to Leeds United:
The midfielder, who had received offers from LaLiga, opted for Leeds to continue advancing professionally in football. After a stage of two seasons of a few minutes (it’s true), but a lot of professional and personal learning at Bayern. There he played 24 games and won two Bundesligas and a Club World Cup, Roca will play in Premier.
Roca was previously linked with FC Barcelona and Real Betis.

Here is what we offer for this episode:
- A look at the latest on Robert Lewandowski, his supposedly pompous exchange with Julian Nagelsmann, and why it’s probably time to find a bargain and send him packing.
- Why there could be cracks in Nagelsmann’s foundation at Bayern Munch.
- An update on Konrad Laimer and why it may take until July for teams to get serious.
- An appreciation of Germany’s recent success.
- The more than serious work of Bayern Munich to try to acquire Sadio Mane from Liverpool.
Responding to the latest reports indicating that Bayern Munich would still like to sell their client Marcel Sabitzer, the player’s agent, Roger Wittmann, reiterated Sabitzer’s desire to stay with the club:
Wittmann: “Sabitzer is staying at Bayern. He had a bad year – he joined the club on the last day of the transfer window. He was Julian Nagelsmann’s desired player. It wasn’t his year but he decided to fix that ” [Bild TV] https://t.co/BB8G71ns4i

Yes… the answer is yes.

After tasting first-team playing time at Anderlecht, Joshua Zirkzee would prefer to be at a club where he can continue to be on the pitch.
“I would prefer to have the guarantee (of playing time). It is certainly possible in Anderlecht, but also in another club. Even staying at Bayern is an option. I just want to gain confidence and feel at home in a club and in an environment,” Zirkzee said.
It’s hard to fault Zirkzee for feeling that way. Young and talented, a return to a slow development path just doesn’t seem to suit him.
Gareth Bale might not leave Spain after all. The Welshman could go to… Getafe? Bale’s agent reportedly posed a question to the club:
Gareth Bale (32), who moved to Real Madrid nine years ago for 100 million euros, could stay in Spain. His adviser proposed the FC Getafe striker, among others. This was confirmed by its president Angel Torres: “We will weigh the options.” Rayo Vallecano should also be an option. Background: Bale would like to stay in the Madrid area with his family. His contract with reigning Champions League winners Madrid expires on June 30.
How are the golf courses in Getafe?
FC Köln could turn to Borussia Dortmund striker Steffen Tigges to bolster their attack:
1. FC Köln have apparently found a new striker and are using BVB. According to the Bildand kicker, Steffen Tigges (23) is attracted to the Rhinelanders. The transfer is therefore acquired and imminent. Cologne should buy the striker. Tigges’ contract with BVB runs until 2024.
The Cologne manager wanted to get the player last summer, but then-BVB manager Marco Rose blocked the transfer. Now he appears to be working on the second attempt with the striker, who hasn’t played since March with a broken left ankle.
