German Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich have opened talks with French club Paris Saint Germain (PSG) over the possible transfer of midfielder Adrien Rabiot.
The interest of Bayern Munich was confirmed by the Daily Mirror.
Rabiot, 23, has been attracting the interests of several European clubs following his contract standoff with French Ligue 1 giants PSG.
He has less than six months left on his current deal with PSG and has already told the club that he won’t sign a new contract at the Parc des Princes.
Adrien Rabiot has already turned down numerous contract offers to stay at PSG beyond the end of this season.
Spanish La Liga champions Barcelona were the overwhelming favourites to sign the six-cap French international but his agent/mother Veronica has failed to agree a free transfer move with senior club officials at the Nou Camp and that has opened up the possibility for Bayern to hijack the transfer.
Bayern are willing to pay a transfer fee in January to sign the Frenchman rather than secure him on a free transfer this summer.
Apart from Barcelona and Bayern Munich, several clubs are also interested in a transfer for him.
European clubs like Liverpool, Chelsea and Arsenal have also been mentioned as potential transfer destinations for the young French midfielder.
Chelsea set to offer Bayern target new contract to keep them at bay ..
West London club Chelsea are willing to offer young winger Callum Hudson-Odoi a new contract at the club to ward off the interest of German Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich.
According to the Daily Mail, they revealed that the Blues want to offer the English junior international a new long-term contract worth £70,000 on a weekly basis.
This is despite the intense transfer interest shown by Bavarian giants Bayern Munich.
Callum Hudson-Odoi, 18, has less than 18 months on his current Chelsea deal billed to expire at the end of the 2019/20 season.
The Maurizio Sarri led side Chelsea want to offer him a new deal that will see the former Chelsea Academy player commit his long-term future to the club beyond the end of next season.
Bundesliga sides Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund are said to be interested in signing the English talent.
Five-time European champions Bayern Munich have already firmed up their interest in Hudson-Odoi with four separate bids including a last bid of £35m which happens to be the asking price from Chelsea.
The Blues wanted to insert a buyback clause in a potential sale of the player but that didn’t go down well with Bayern Munich.
It seems Chelsea have changed their position on Callum Hudson-Odoi and would want him to stay at the club though regular playing time could be the stumbling block for him to sign a new deal.
Huge blow for Arsenal as Bayern Munich want James Rodriguez to stay
Arsenal’s desire to sign Bayern Munich striker James Rodriguez has suffered a huge blow as Niko Kovac reveals his determination to prevent the player from leaving.
The Colombian international is reportedly set to leave Allianz Arena having been reduced to a bit-part player under Niko Kovac and reports are suggesting the Bundesliga giants hope to sell him for as low as £3m.
The Daily Mirror reported last night that the Bavarians are ready to negotiate a deal with the Gunners over his future.
In the report, the Gunners are keen on bringing Rodriguez to Emirates stadium as Emery hope to capture the World Cup star before the end of the January window.
However, Emery has been dealt a great blow in his decision to sign the 27-year-old as Kovac revealed his plan to prevent the striker from leaving his team.
Speaking to reporters ahead of Bayern’s clash with Hoffenheim, Niko Kovac debunked rumors that suggest his readiness to sell the former Real Madrid star.
According to him, James is a great player who has important roles to play in the team’s mission to leapfrog Borussia Dortmund from the top of the League standings.
He said: “He wants to stay with FC Bayern, as he once said during a fan club visit, he is highly motivated and focused,”.
James is six months from completing his two-year loan deal with the Bundesliga side and he could return to Santiago Bernabeu in the summer.
Bayern Munich speaks on Arsenal’s James Rodriguez’s future
German Bundesliga outfit Bayern Munich sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic has made it clear that the club do not have any intention to release James Rodriguez to Arsenal.
It was reported that the German outfit are now willing to let him leave to his real owners who are also not interested in keeping him at the club.
James Rodriquez was supposed to have a two year loan spell from Real Madrid at Bayern Munich but he is reported not to be impressing and could be asked to leave to spend the remaining six months at the Emirates Stadium.
In their reaction, the club dismissed the rumor, stating that James Rodriquez will remain with the club until the end of the season as they intend to monitor his progress to ascertain whether he would be signed on a permanent deal or meant to return to Spain.
Bayern sporting director, therefore, stated that the stand of the club on James Rodriquez will only be known at the end of the season.
He also dismissed claims that the German outfit plans to sign the player on a permanent deal and then sell him on a higher price to other suitors, adding that it is not in the style of the club to do so.
Liverpool join Arsenal in race for unhappy Bayern Munich star
English Premier League side Liverpool are reported to have joined the North Lon don outfit Arsenal in the race to sign German Bundesliga outfit Bayern Munich star James Rodriguez in this winter transfer window.
James Rodriguez is currently on loan with the Bundesliga outfit with the hope that he could seal a permanent move but that might not happen again as he is reported to be unhappy at the club.
There are also no chances of him returning to Real Madrid having dropped in form which means he could be on his way out to another destination.
The North London outfit are reported to be keen on the star player who is tipped to replace Wales international Aaron Ramsey and England international DannyWelbeck.
Aaron Ramsey’s contract with the Gunners expires at the end of the season and he is failed to extend his stay while Danny Welbeck is injured and out of the season.
However, the Gunners will not find the race funny anymore with the Premier League giants Liverpool papering on the scene to also land him in the Anfield this January.
The Mirror claims the Gunners might still win the race as it is not certain James Rodriguez will find a space in the solid Reds team.
Why Liverpool Target Snubs Bayern Munich Transfer
Five-time European champions Liverpool have been boosted by the news that RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner has snubbed a transfer to German Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich.
Timo Werner is a transfer target for Premier League leaders Liverpool.
According to the publication from popular English news outlet Daily Express, Timo Werner rejected a transfer to the Bavarian giants due to playing time.
The petite attacker believes that he won’t be given much playing time at the Allianz Arena with Polish international star Robert Lewandowski still the undisputed first choice striker at the club.
Werner, 22, has been heavily linked with a move away from RB Leipzig in this January transfer window with doubts lingering over his long-term future with the Europa League campaigners.
He has less than 18 months remaining on his RB Leipzig which runs down at the end of next season.
The German international has already been told that he will be sold at the end of this season in the event that he fails to sign a new contract with RB Leipzig.
His form for RB Leipzig has led to the interests of several clubs including the German Bundesliga duo of Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund as well as Liverpool.
He has scored 11 times in 17 games in the league this term.
Bayern Announce Liverpool Target Will Join On July 1
German Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich have announced that Benjamin Pavard will join the club this summer.
The announcement was made by the Bavarian giants’ sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic on Wednesday.
The former Bayern Munich winger also confirmed that French international defender Pavard has put pen to paper on a five-year deal until the end of the 2023/24 season.
It was also revealed that 22-year-old will join his new club on the 1St of July.
Benjamin Pavard will join Bayern in the summer at the end of his contract with fellow German Bundesliga outfit VfB Stuttgart.
His stock rose in the summer of 2018 when he played a prominent role for the French national team at last year’s FIFA World Cup tournament in Russia.
Benjamin Pavard was the first choice right-sided defender for the French team that won a second World Cup title by seeing off surprise finalists Croatia via a 4-2 win in their final clash in July 2018.
He also scored the best goal of the tournament with his stunning strike against Argentina in a second round clash which ended in a 4-3 victory for France.
With France trailing 2-1 to Argentina, Pavard unleashed an unstoppable strike to equalise for his side and that played a big part in the win for the French team.
He’s a utility defender that can play as a right back and as a central defender.
We would sign Odoi says Bayern Boss ..
Bayern Munich boss Niko Kovac has insisted that he would go out of his way to get Callum Hudson-Odoi out of Chelsea and bring him to Germany whilst also promising that he will get more game time with the Bundesliga champions if he signs with the team.
Odoi is in his final phase of contract at the Stamford Bridge and in 18 months he will unofficially be able to move on a free if he a new deal is not given at the Blues he might be on his way to Bayern where he is subject of a £30million offer.
The West London club are my ready to let Hudson-Odoi leave, but he is keen for more game time having played just 42 minutes in the Premier League under Maurizio Sarri.
And when the German champions boss was questioned about Bayern’s potential interest in the youngster, he was quoted to have emphasized that he has no reservations about giving young players their chance to shine.‘If a young player is good, his age does not matter to me. We are looking for young talents who can bring us things immediately.’ He continued: ‘He is the same age as [Jadon] Sancho, who has been very successful.
‘That we all know and watch these players is completely normal. If and when anything happens, it will be [Salihamidzic] who does that. He is in charge of transfers.’
Hudson-Odoi was in action Nottingham Forest in the FA Cup on Saturday, setting up both of Chelsea’s goals in a 2-0 win.
These two European giants to offer £9m-a-year deal to lure Arsenal star
Emerging reports claim that two European giants Bayern Munich and Juventus are ready to hand an offer worth £9 million annually in order to lure North London side Arsenal star Aaron Ramsey to their sides.
The future of the Wales international seems to have been known already as it has been earlier revealed that he would be leaving the Emirates Stadium at the end of the season.
The former Cardiff City midfielder had his negotiation with the Gunners for a new deal stopped over his demand for about £300,000-per-week as alleged which ensured the withdrawal of the club as they were reluctant to meet with such an amount.
However, a number of big sides include Italian champions Juventus, German Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich and Spanish La Liga outfit Real Madrid all seeking to secure his services.
Latest reports therefore reveal that Juventus and Bayern Munich have arrived at the same conclusion for an offer that will have Ramsey leave the North London side.
Reports claim that the Ramsey could just give his nod to the Italian giants because of the possibility of a title win in Turin ahead of Bayern Munich who are currently struggling to secure a qualification to the Champions League next season.
Liverpool set to defeat Bayern Munich before Champions League clash
The Reds are going to tackle Bayern Munich in February as both clubs hope to progress to the next round of this season’s Champions League competition.
After progressing out of their group, thanks to a hard-fought 1-0 victory over Napoli, the Reds were paired with the Bavarians in the round-16 stage.
Before the much-anticipated clash, both teams are reportedly set to battle for young striker Timo Werner who currently plays for RB Leipzig in Germany.
The 22-year-old has been in fine form for the Bundesliga side and his eye-catching displays haven’t gone unnoticed by top European clubs.
Bayern Munich manager Niko Kovač is very much keen to add more young players into his team and he believes Werner is surely going bring more firepower to his attack.
The Croatian manager didn’t start this season on a very bright note as his men currently occupy the second position, six points behind Borussia Dortmund who are at the summit of the League table.
Kovac is hoping to change the fortune of his side in the second period of the campaign, therefore, he’s desperately trying to lure the German youngster to the Allianz Arena in January
Despite their blistering start to the season, the Reds need to add one or two players to their squad in the upcoming winter market.
Jurgen Klopp got some attack-minded players during the summer window but only a few have settled into the team.
Fabinho and Naby Keita have failed to live up to fans expectations so far this season and reports are claiming that one of the players could be released by Klopp so as to create space for Timo Werner.
WHY LIVERPOOL MUST BEAT BAYERN TO HIS SIGNATURE
Impressive goalscoring record
If there is one thing the RB Leipzig striker knows how to do, that must be scoring goals. The player has 44 goals from just 78 games.
His goalscoring abilities are desperately needed by the Reds so as to reduce Salah’s goalscoring burden.
Liverpool rely so much on the Egyptian forward for goals and that is mounting much pressure on the former Roma striker.
Liverpool will have another proven goalscorer in Werner should the Merseyside club beat Bayern to his service before the close of the winter transfer market.
Werner’s versatility is another reason why Klopp must move strictly for the youngster’s signature as soon as the winter window opens.
The 22-year-old was a winger during his days at VfB Stuttgart but he is being converted into a centre-forward by Leipzig’s manager Ralph Hasenhuttl.
Despite featuring consistently as a striker, Werner still remains a good winger who can deliver good crosses into the opponent’s 18-yard box.
He will surely provide more options to Klopp in the attack and that will make the Reds look more dangerous and difficult to beat for any club in the world.
Man United get Munich competition for la Liga star in January window
English Premier League side Manchester United are keen on the signature of France international and Atletico Madrid defender Lucas Hernandez according to reports from the Spanish press.
Spanish news outlet OK Diario reports that United are faced with competition from German Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich with both sides seeking to land him in the winter transfer window which reopens in coming weeks.
It was earlier reported that a potential deal for Lucas Hernandez was already on the cards for the German Bundesliga giants but with the interest from the English club makes it fluid as they are now set for a fresh battle for his signature.
With a new manager at the Old Trafford, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is keen to have more additions to the team as he has been saddled with the responsibility of returning the team back to winning ways.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is therefore expected to make some signings in the coming winter transfer window with Lucas Hernandez and other targets likely to have a switch to the Premier League.
Meanwhile, Bayern Munich are still favourites in the race for the star defender which means United will have to do more to be able to secure his signature in the winter window.
