Bayern’s interest in Camavinga is spiking (France Football)

Bayern Munich has been linked to Eduardo Camavinga for months now and it appears that interest could be spiking once again:

Contractually linked to Rennes until June 2022, Eduardo Camavinga (18) interests Bayern Munich more than ever. Despite competition from Real Madrid, the German leaders intend to convince their Breton counterparts to complete the transfer of Eduardo Camavinga in the coming weeks. The Bavarian team’s recruitment unit, masterfully led by Marco Neppe and the French Laurent Busser, ticked several names on its list, including that of Florian Neuhaus (24), but Borussia Mönchengladbach would claim €45M, a sum deemed excessive by the Bayern staff, which, suddenly, focused on Camavinga.

Admittedly, the indestructible duo formed by Joshua Kimmich and Leon Goretzka (who will soon extend until 2026) embody the present and the future of the leader of the Bundesliga, but the departure of Thiago Alcantara last summer in Liverpool has not been compensated. And if (Corentin) Tolisso (currently injured) is also expected to start a fifth season on the banks of the Isar, Bayern decision-makers are actively looking for a central defensive midfielder capable of relieving the two German internationals.

Sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic would promise Camavinga interesting playing time and tantalizing prospects in a Championship that would suit his profile so well.

Inter eyeing Boateng (Sempre Inter)

While Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal might be leading in the pursuit of Jerome Boateng, Inter Milan could be poised to enter the race:

Tuttosport’s print edition said Danilo D’Ambrosio, Andrea Ranocchia and Aleksandar Kolarov could all leave the Nerazzurri with their contracts set to expire in the summer.Inter have decided not to exercise their option to extend Kolarov’s contract for another season, which would have become automatic after the Serbian made his 20th appearance this season (he has only played 11 times so far).

Ranocchia is likely to want more game time after playing second fiddle to Stefan de Vrij this season, while D’Ambrosio could stay but does also have interest from AC Milan (who have offered a two-year deal).The Turin-based paper said Inter were likely to re-sign Standard Liege captain for €17 million, at which point Antonio Conte would decide if he stayed or went out on loan again.Inter will also be looking at free agents ahead of next season though, with the most appealing player in that regard being Jerome Boateng at Bayern Munich. Napoli’s Nikola Maksimovic is currently the most likely option after the Serbian was offered by his agent to Inter sporting director Piero Ausilio. Lorenzo Pirola could return from his loan spell at Monza and be sent out to gain experience in another Serie A team next season.

Ribery could stay put (Transfer Market Web)

Bayern Munich legend Franck Ribery could be staying put at Fiorentina:

Playing for Fiorentina since 2019/20, 38-year old prominent French wide web midfielder/winger Franck Ribéry, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport, might end up staying put one season longer, by having his ongoing deal with Italian club extended, beyond current June 2021 deadline.

Former Bayern Munich and Les Bleus star has been linked to a bunch of clubs including by Eintracht Frankfurt, Galatasaray (which he used to play for back in 2005 already), and ​Karagumruk.

Well now...who doesn’t agree with this?

And how do you know when your idea is pretty awful on all levels? Well, when Domino’s obliterates you:

Dorsch to Wolfsburg? (Bild)

Former Bayern Munich midfielder Niklas Dorsch has started to breakthrough in his career and has reportedly done enough to have Wolfsburg considering a proposal to Gent for the 23-year-old Germany youth international.

Wolfsburg is also allegedly interested in Bayern Munich goalkeeper Ron-Thorben Hoffmann.

Philipp has done enough to convince the Wolves (Transfer Market Web)

Former Borussia Dortmund forward Max Philipp has also performed well enough for Wolfsburg to believe he can make a permanent impact. It appears the Wolves will be looking to by Philipp from Dynamo Moscow:

Providing Wolfsburg a fine seasonal performance, German winger/forward Maximilian Philipp (27) is going to be bought back by Bundesliga side, according to Kicker. Dynamo Moscow, which former Dortmund and Freiburg hitman is still on a parent-club deal with until June 2023, is going to cash an 11 million euros fee from the trade.
