Sane wants to consult with Beckham on potential move (Daily Mail)

Manchester City’s Leroy Sane might be seeking some advice from Manchester United legend David Beckham on how to approach his upcoming decision on whether to stay with City or leave for Bayern Munich.

Leroy Sane wants to discuss his Manchester City future with Manchester United legend David Beckham. Bayern Munich have publicly declared their interest in signing the talented German winger this summer and Sane failed to consistently nail down a place in Pep Guardiola’s line-up last season. The 23-year-old is understood to be carefully assessing his options and wants to reach out to Beckham, according to the Sun.

Draxler is only thinking of PSG (@cfbayern)

Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Julian Draxler has been rumored to be a target of both Bayern and Tottenham Hotspur, but the 25-year-old doesn’t appear to be ready to make a move per Christian Falk.

The price on James could be lowered for Napoli (Football Italia)

The latest stay with Real Madrid for James Rodriguez was expected to be brief, but it could end up a living Abe Simpson meme.

Colombia international James Rodriguez is open to joining Napoli and it’s reported Real Madrid could lower the €42m asking price. The creative midfielder just returned to base after a two-season loan spell with Bayern Munich and has no room at the Bernabeu.

According to the Corriere dello Sport, James is the number one transfer target for the summer, as requested by Carlo Ancelotti. The coach already worked with him at Real Madrid and Bayern Munich. It’s believed Real Madrid would be prepared to lower the €42m asking price, which was the option to buy that Bayern decided not to take up. James would receive a five-year contract worth €6.5m per season.

Women’s World Cup rundown (@FOXSoccer)

Here are all the goals from yesterday’s action at the Women’s World Cup:

Robben in Rome? (Calciomercato)

Arjen Robben’s representatives have reportedly had talks with Serie A side Lazio. Could a future in Italy be in the mix for the Dutch legend?

Arjen Robben is set to become a free-agent in a few weeks from now and Calciomercato.it have reported that Robben’s agents have held talks with Lazio as they offered him to the Roman side. It remains to be seen if Lazio are interested in signing the veteran winger.

De Ligt unsure on future plans (Münchner Merkur)

Ajax center-back Matthijs De Ligt took the news regarding Bayern’s withdrawl from his courtship in stride and seems to be in no rush to make a decision on his future. Speaking after the Netherlands’ 1-0 loss against Portugal in the UEFA Nations League yesterday, De Ligt didn’t seem to feel any pressure in making a decision.

I don’t know. Now I’m going on holiday to recover. And then I’ll see.

Ajax, FC Barcelona, Manchester United, and Paris Saint-Germain are all allegedly still involved with De Ligt.
