Meeting in Madrid for Jovic agent (kicker)

It looks like the agent for Eintracht Frankfurt’s extraordinary striker Luka Jovic met with representatives from Real Madrid.

Luka Jovic (21) remains an issue in Spain. Now AS is reporting a meeting between Real Madrid’s General Director Jose Angel Sanchez and Jovic agent Fali Ramadani — complete with photo papers — although Ramadanis’ agency also represents many other top players such as midfielder Miralem Pjanic (28, Juventus) and center-back Kalidou Koulibaly (27, Napoli), who is considered a possible successor to the outgoing World Champion Raphael Varane (25).

But according to AS, the conversation was explicitly about Jovic, who has already scored 22 competitive goals for Eintracht Frankfurt this season and is therefore linked to numerous top clubs, including Real rivals Barcelona.

Juve peeking at Alaba? (Transfer Market Web)

The absurdity surrounding a potential exit from Bayern Munich for David Alaba is growing. Now, you can add Juventus to a growing list that include FC Barcelona, Real Madrid, and Arsenal.

According to Italian [newspaper] La Stampa, Juventus[’] management, [un]sure about bringing Marcelo in from Real Madrid, are challenging both Blancos and Barcelona FC [for] Austrian international left-back David Alaba (26). The latter might leave Bayern Munich, due to Lucas Hernandez’s [impending] arrival.

Yeah, their English translation is almost as bad as their rumors.

Guardiola keeps the doors “wide open” for Kroos (El Confidencial)

Could Germany international and Real Madrid star Toni Kroos be heading to Manchester City to play for Pep Guardiola this summer?

Therefore, it is no surprise that the coach continues to await Kroos’ decision year after year: the doors of Manchester City are wide open if he decides mutually with Madrid to leave the entity.

Is the deal for Werner near completion? (@_HomeBayern)

Per Bild, all that remains between Bayer and RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner is an agreement for a transfer fee between the clubs.

Could the story last week about Bayern’s interest sputtering out just have been a negotiating ploy? Hmmm...

Well... (@FCBayernEN)

These guys look like the staff of a craft beer joint in Brooklyn.
