Robert Lewandowski ‘Interested’ in PSG Switch as Super Agent Plans Escape Route From Bayern

?Paris Saint-Germain could be about to contest other European giants in the race to sign Robert Lewandowski.

That is according to French website ?Paris United, who have alleged that the Bayern Munich superstar is ‘open’ to the possibility of plying his trade for the Ligue 1 club next season.

Lewandowski’s future at the Allianz Arena has been plunged into doubt over the past month after he sacked his two former agents and reports suggested that he was willing to end his Bayern spell and move to pastures new.

A clamour from the world’s super agents has followed since and, after a lengthy battle, it would seem that Pini Zahavi has won the race to bring in the Poland international as his latest big name client ahead of Jorge Mendes.

Zahavi is said to have told Lewandowski that he will make it his number one priority to ensure that the 30-year-old will play for PSG from the 2018/19 campaign onwards and Lewandowski has expressed interest in the transfer.

Israeli agent Zahavi supposedly believes that ‘all the signals are green’ for PSG to mount an attack on Bayern and try to convince them to sell the goalscorer to Unai Emery’s side.

However, PSG would face serious competition for Lewandowski’s signature with La Liga heavyweights Real Madrid and Premier League champions Chelsea also holding significant interest in him.

Real president Florentino Perez wants the former Borussia Dortmund hotshot to usher in a new Galactico era at Santiago Bernabeu when this term ends.

Chelsea, meanwhile, want Lewandowski to lead their line as they reportedly eye a replacement for Alvaro Morata, who has struggled to hit the heights expected of him since his big-money move from Madrid last August.

Lewandowski would appear to set any interested party back at least £80m if Bayern elect to sell him, but it is unclear if the German giants would be willing to sanction his departure.

The towering attacker is still a key component of Bayern’s starting lineup and, with plenty left in the tank, would likely ask for top dollar to contemplate letting him leave.

Bayern Boss Admits Interest in Arsenal & Tottenham Target Ahead of Summer Transfer Battle

Bayern Munich manager Jupp Heynckes has admitted that Bordeaux winger Malcom is ‘in the focus’ of his club as they plan their summer transfer activity.

This news will come as a blow for Premier League rivals Arsenal and Tottenham, who have both been linked with moves for Malcom in months gone by.

“He’s certainly in the focus of our scouting department, like many other players as well,” Heynckes told ?Sport Bild. “[Sporting director] Hasan Salihamidzic has very clear ideas and is driving forward the plans for next season.

“He knows exactly who is in our sights and which players he would like to have. He has high quality players in mind.”

Both of the north London teams were expected to reignite their interest in the 21-year-old this summer, after ?they failed to secure his signature in the January transfer window.

Brazilian winger Malcom admitted in January that he would like to leave the Ligue 1 outfit in the summer, and said he will use the coming months to make his final decision on which club he will join.

“Yes, there was a promise that I will be negotiating in June,” he said. “I will choose the team, and Bordeaux will let me go. I already said that I would have liked to leave this winter to meet new challenges. But I must also remember that Bordeaux helped me a lot.

“I gave my word to Bordeaux that I will continue [with the club] to be able to have more time to choose my future club. These next three or four months will make a big difference.”

German Report Claims Bayern Ace Is Planning Summer Exit to Spain With Real Madrid & Barcelona Keen

?A German report claims that Bayern Munich left-back David Alaba is contemplating leaving the Bundesliga this summer, with either Real Madrid or Barcelona thought to be his preferred destination.

As claimed by German outlet Bild, the Austrian international has become disillusioned with the club after their treatment of veteran winger Franck Ribery – who have refused to offer the former French international a contract extension until April, despite his current deal expiring at the end of the season.

Real Madrid could well look to bring Alaba to the Bernabéu in the summer, as they look to overhaul their squad after a disappointing 2017/18 La Liga campaign. However, starting left-back Marcelo is still arguably in the prime of his career, and to bring in Alaba would mean that one of the two top level defenders would be forced to sit on the bench.

Conversely, Barcelona have endured a fine season thus far, but Jordi Alba’s impressive performances at left-back would mean a similar situation for Alaba should he make the switch to the Camp Nou. However, the 25-year-old is renowned as a versatile player, and could well be deployed in either a central defensive or midfield role for either side.

The 25-year-old has been with Bayern Munich for his whole career thus far – winning six Bundesliga Liga titles and a Champions League. With Bayern on course for another runaway league title this season, Alaba could look to end his time with the Bavarian giants on a high, before making a move to pastures new while he still has his best years ahead of him.

In other news, ?an outrageous report from Spain has claimed that Bayern will use their option to sign their star loanee James Rodríguez for £37 from Real Madrid in the summer – only to immediately sell him on to Liverpool for £53m to make an instant profit.

Bayern Munich Star Admits ‘Amazing’ Manchester City Lack Lionel Messi’s ‘Wow’ Factor

?Bayern Munich’s Thiago Alcantara has admitted that Manchester City do not make him think ‘wow’ – but former teammate Lionel Messi does.

He recently spoke to ?ESPN and revealed that he thinks City’s football is ‘awesome’, but admitted that it is not the same as watching Lionel Messi play: ”City are playing amazingly, but I don’t think ‘wow’. [Only] Messi makes me go ‘wow.”’

Thiago played with Messi for numerous years at Barcelona before his move to Bayern and insisted that City cannot match the ‘wow factor’ of Messi on the pitch.

The Spanish playmaker has only started 14 games for Bayern this season, having only just returned from a muscle tear that has kept him sidelined since November. 

He returns to Bayern’s squad for the crucial stages of the season and believes his side are as good as any left in the Champions League, saying: ”Barcelona, Real Madrid, City. There are many teams you’d want to play against. But no team has impressed me. They are football players, like us. We just have to compete and see who is better at that moment.”

The 26-year-old’s Bayern side lead? 5-0 in their last 16 tie with Besiktas after the first leg and are all but certain to reach the quarter-finals for the seventh year running.

The Bundesliga leaders have not won the Champions League since 2013 however, and will be confident that they can reach the final stages of the competition or even win it this year.

After reaching the semi-finals in three of the last four years, this season could be the year that Bayern reclaim the title of European champions.

Bayern Munich Eye £50m Rated Tottenham Target to Replace Ageing Franck Ribery & Arjen Robben

Bayern Munich will look to challenge Tottenham Hotspur in the race for coveted Brazilian starlet Malcom this summer, as the club looks to sign long-term replacements for their veteran wingers, Franck Ribéry and Arjen Robben, according to talkSPORT.

Malcom is still a fairly inexperienced player when it comes to European football, having only moved from Brazil in 2016, but the 21-year-old has been making a name for himself in Ligue 1.

FBL-FRA-LIGUE1-BORDEAUX-LYON

With Robben and Ribéry both expected to leave Bavaria this summer – a decision which is being made by Bayern’s hierarchy who already have one eye of Jupp Heynckes’ successor – the club want to sign someone who can partner Kingsley Coman in wide areas.

There have been rumours suggesting that Marseille star Florian Thauvin could be on his way to the Allianz Arena, while some fans are calling for Juan Bernat to fill the void in attack – a position he respectably filled against SC Freiburg on Sunday.

However, the club will most likely want to make a statement of intent this summer and offer their new manager a host of young new players to work with – one of which will be midfielder Leon Goretzka.

Malcom joined Girondins Bordeaux from Corinthians for just €5m and he has already been attracting interest from Arsenal and Tottenham, causing the French side set their asking price at a staggering £50m.

The Gunners saw a £37.5m bid rejected for Malcom during the January transfer window, while Spurs opted to sign Lucas Moura instead – something which could pave the way for Bayern Munich to secure his signature this summer.
