Citing news from Onda Cero’s “Radioestadio”, Tribuna is reporting that Bayern Munich might make a play for Espanyol’s Marc Roca after Atlético Madrid’s Rodrigo “Rodri” Hernandez opted to join Manchester City.

Dembelé to cost 100 million? (Don Balon)

Guess who’s back? Back again....Don Balon, tell your friends! Yes, it’s true...Don Balol is back in the house! According to “The Don”, Bayern would be willing to pay 100 million for Ousmane Dembélé, who FC Barcelona bought for €125 million from Borussia Dortmund in 2017.

He does not want to return to the weak Ligue 1 and prefers, in case of leaving, to go to Bayern Munich, who has been interested in him. Seeing the complications of removing Leroy Sané from Manchester City, (Bayern) would be willing to offer about 100.

Is Lovren a target for Bayern? (Calciomercato)

After its allegedly miss on Ozan Kabak (reportedly transferring from VfB Stuttgart to Schalke 04), is Bayern Munich going to add depth by signing Liverpool’s Dejan Lovren? The Bavarians are said to be competing with AC Milan for the 29-year-old defender.

It is no secret that Dejan Lovren could be on his way this summer with multiple clubs lining up for services, while Liverpool are more than willing to sell for the right price. A few days ago, Milan seemed to be comfortably in the lead for the player, but Bayern Munich have since accelerated their efforts.

James to Atlético Madrid? (Münchner Merkur)

Could Real Madrid’s James Rodriguez move across town?

The Spanish radio station Cadena SER reported that the Rojiblancos are intensively occupied with James Rodriguez’s representatives. The offensive player is reluctant to leave Madrid because he feels very comfortable in the Spanish capital. That’s what Atletico has been calling for. As Los Colchoneros are currently in a state of upheaval, James would fit perfectly into the team. In addition to Antoine Griezmann’s permanent departure, Atletico is now faced with the signing of Joao Felix, Benfica’s prodigy.
