Dortmund makes first move on Van de Beek (Transfer Market Web)

Ajax’s 22-year-old midfielder Donny van de Beek was one of the many players who opened up some eyes during his team’s tremendous Champions League run. Now, however, several starring members of the squad are considered available on the transfer market and some big clubs are swooping.

Van de Beek has drawn the attention of Borussia Dortmund, Bayern Munich, AC Milan, Napoli, Real Madrid, and Paris Saint-Germain and BVB sporting director Michael Zorc has reportedly already engaged in talks with the player’s camp.

After CL huge disappointment, Dutch international attacking midfielder Donny van de Beek (22) is pondering over his own future. To this end, Borussia Dortmund director of football Michael Zorc is working through talks with both Ajax and the 1997-born’s entourage. Currently on a deal with Eredivisie giants until June 2022, Van De Beek is tracked by many more clubs, including Bayern Munich, AC Milan, Napoli, PSG, and Real Madrid.

Hudson-Odoi to engage in contract talks with the Blues (Daily Mail)

Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi will reportedly get a new offer from the club, but he may still have eyes on a move to Germany.

Chelsea are still to hold fresh contract talks with teenage starlet Callum Hudson-Odoi and now face a major summer battle to keep him at Stamford Bridge. Amid a potential transfer ban for this summer, it could leave Chelsea facing up to the prospect of losing both Eden Hazard, whose contract also expires in the summer of 2020, and Hudson-Odoi, without the capacity to replace the pair. Hudson-Odoi handed in a transfer request in January amid sustained interest from Bayern Munich and the German club remain highly interested in a summer move for the winger. Manchester United and Barcelona are also tracking his situation. The winger is hoping to return to playing by the start of September and still hopes to do so in Bayern colors if he can finalize a summer move to Bavaria.

Juve sets price on Dybala (Calciomercato)

Juventus seems intent on selling Paulo Dybala and reports out of Italy seem to persist that Bayern is involved in the bidding.

Rumors are abundant about clubs interested in Dybala, from Manchester United to Bayern Munich. However, no club has yet submitted real offers to Juventus, but the price to free Dybala from Juventus has been set at just over €100 million.

“What do we say to the those selling Paulo Dybala? Not today.”

Anyway, Juventus is looking to generate funds for some big-time transfer activity and the easiest way to do that is to dispatch a talented 25-year-old that is allegedly valued by some big-name clubs. Whether Bayern really is interested in Dybala or not remains to be seen.

If it was my call, I’d take a hard pass.

Frankfurt’s run was pretty awesome (@dw_sports)

It may have ended on penalties to Chelsea yesterday, but Eintracht Frankfurt’s Europa League run was fun, exciting, and a true statement about how talented that team is.

PSG denies that Neymar wants to fight everyone in the locker room in an odd way (@PSG_Inside)

Earlier this week, we detailed a report that stated that Neymar came close to blows with Julian Draxler and Paris Saint-Germain hit back at Le Parisien, where the report originated, via Twitter.

Funny game of @le_Parisien: to present @neymarjr, a world football phenomenon, as a player who fights with his teammates in the dressing room. How can you invent such things? Were you in the locker room? Ney = @PSG_inside ❤
