Bild is starting to ramp up its coverage of the potential future for the Bayern Munich duo of Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery now that each player is entering the final days of their respective careers with the club.

Frank Ribery is allegedly mulling a future with Turkey or Qatar.

According to Bild information Ribéry should have several offers. Galatasaray Istanbul wants Ribéry back. He was already there from January to July 2005. Also Qatar club Al Sadd is in his turn.

There was no mention of the previously interest expressed by the Western Sydney Wanderers.

As for Arjen Robben, the Dutchman’s previous links with FC Groningen, PSV Eindhoven, and Toronto FC were echoed.

Bayern, United show interest in Dybala (Calciomercato)

Juventus star Paulo Dybala is out of favor with the club and is considered likely to move on. Per a report out of Italy, Bayern and Manchester United are both taking a close look at the 25-year-old Argentina international.

Both Manchester United and Bayern Munich are showing signs of interest in the player. Firstly, at United, Dybala could be offered the starring role in the relaunch of the club, as the club prepares for life after Paul Pogba, who is about to leave Manchester for the second time following the team’s failure to qualify for the champions league.

Secondly, Bayern Munich are also interested in the Argentine and they plan to move quickly to replace the outgoing James Rodriguez (who will not make his loan permanent) and veteran wingers Robben and Ribery (whose contracts will not be renewed). The German club again aims to make Dybala the center of the clubs remodeling for next season.

Tadic back on Bayern’s radar (Tutto Mercato Web)

Ajax’s Dusan Tadic was linked to Bayern a few months ago, but now those rumors could be heating back up. Interestingly, Juventus is also interested in the versatile, 30-year-old forward.

According to TMW, there are two teams that have so far followed with the greatest interest the Serbian striker class ‘88: Bayern Munich and Juventus. The Bavarians were looking for a replacement for James Rodriguez, who was destined to return even if only on his way to Real Madrid, while the Bianconeri were studying possible life after (Paulo) Dybala. A track to keep an eye on with great attention, is the one that leads to the expert Tadic, who against Bayern and Juve in this Champions League has unleashed performances of the highest level. In the meantime, a clear message filters from his entourage: the player has not been offered to any club yet and is concentrated on a season finale.

Then, inevitably, it will be time to market: by the way, according to the latest rumors, in Tadic’s contract with Ajax there would be a special clause that would allow him to free himself for 16 million euros, a figure well below the real value of the former Southampton man.
