New Bayern Munich boss Julian Nagelsmann already stated that he likely won’t be looking to bring any members of his current RB Leipzig roster with him to Bavaria, but the coach does have a few players he would like to see on Säbener Straße next season — including one Die Roten Bullen player:
Now, according to Fijaches, Nagelsmann has handed his new bosses at Bayern his three summer transfer wishes ahead of his move. Top of his wanted list is AZ Alkmaar’s much-coveted midfielder Teun Koopmeiners. The 23-year-old midfielder has caught the eye over the past couple of seasons after some inspired performances in the Eredivisie. Capable of playing as a No 8 or as a defensive midfielder, Koopmeiners recently earned his first senior cap for Holland.
Nagelsmann is not quite done with just one addition, though. The 34-year-old would also like to see RB Leipzig’s Nordi Mukiele and AZ Alkmaar’s Myron Boadu in Bavaria:
As per Fijaches, Nagelsmann is also keen to bring Nordi Mukiele with him from RB Leipzig. The Frenchman is capable of playing across the defence though is most comfortable at full-back. He’s viewed as the best replacement for the departing David Alaba.
The incoming Bayern boss has also set his sights on AZ striker Myron Boadu. Known as something of a goal poacher, Boadu has notched 27 goals in 65 appearances for Alkmaar. He had been identified by Nagelsmann as a target for Leipzig, but now wants him at Bayern. The thinking is that Boadu could be a long-term successor to Robert Lewandowski. The 20-year-old has one Holland cap to his name.
Verdict: I’m very skeptical of this report from Fijaches to be honest.
Apparently, Juventus was also in the mix:
Robert Lewandowski‘s future is claimed to be less than concrete with Bayern Munich, and there could even be an exit on the cards in the coming window. That is the theory according to Sky Sports (via Fichajes), who believe that the striker has grown frustrated with the spat between manager Hansi Flick and director Hasan Salihamidzic.
TuttoJuve adds that Juventus will be amongst the chasing pack for his signature, and could well be keen to bring the 32 year-old in to replace Cristiano Ronaldo, who is rumoured to be of interest to clubs also.
Uh yeah...Lewandowski won’t be going to Juventus any time soon.
Sevilla’s Papu Gomez had to pick up a package, but had no time to change out of that pesky kit he wears for work:

We can add Arsenal goalkeeper and Germany international Bernd Leno to the list of people who hates the idea of a Super League:

Transfer rumor season is upon us and who did not need to hear that both Bayern Munich’s Jerome Boateng and Eintracht Frankfurt’s Luka Jovic could be headed to Inter Milan?
Jovic, of course, is on loan with Die Adler from Real Madrid, but seems to be the more unlikely fit with Inter:
FcInterNews.it said Ramadani offered Bayern Munich defender Jerome Boateng to the Nerazzurri, although a deal will be difficult due to the German’s wages.Boateng wants a two-year deal worth €4 million annually and Inter made it clear they wouldn’t stand much of a chance of guaranteeing him such a fee.
Real Madrid forward Luka Jovic is another player who was offered to Inter during the meeting, proposed as an ideal third or fourth striker for Antonio Conte’s squad. However Jovic, who is on loan at Eintracht Frankfurt, earns €5 million annually and was signed by Real Madrid for €60 million two years ago, so he would not come cheap. Inter would be interested if the striker became available on loan but at the moment Jovic is not considered a priority.
Boateng could conceivably be a fit in Italy, but he might have proven he has enough left in the tank to warrant a look from the Premier League.
