Perisic only wants a Bayern move in Germany (Fussball Transfers)

Bayern Munich has not yet made contact with Inter Milan for winger Ivan Perisic, it does appear as if a return to the Bundesliga will be “Bayern or nothing” for Perisic despite reported interest from Eintracht Frankfurt, RB Leipzig, and Hertha Berlin:

FC Bayern could be interested in returning after the misunderstanding with Douglas Costa. Perisic is also an issue at Hertha BSC. Furthermore, RB Leipzig and Eintracht Frankfurt are haunted by the Italian press as possible buyers.

Only one of the clubs mentioned would be a serious option. As FT knows, the 32-year-old would only ponder a call from Munich. Otherwise Perisic would like to get to know a new league.

As for what other options Perisic might have, both Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United previously showed interest, while there are also whispers that there could be teams in Spain eyeing their Croatian as well.

Chelsea to meet BVB’s demands for Haaland? (@beINSPORTSUSA)

According to at least one report, Chelsea is willing to pay approximately €180 million to Borussia Dortmund for Erling Haaland:

As seen above, Tammy Abraham would potentially head to BVB as well.

Kostic could be headed to Inter (@swearimnotpaul)

If rumors are true, Inter Milan is set to get a gem. Eintracht Frankfurt star Filip Kostic is said to have agreed to personal terms with Inter, but the clubs have not yet worked out a transfer fee:

I’ve said it many times before, but if there was one player in the Bundesliga, who could step into Munich and be an absolute impact player, I believe it would be Kostic. I’m not sure he would not be the most “Bayern winger” of all the wingers on the roster.

United and Sancho have agreed on personal terms (@cfbayern and @FabrizioRomano)

It looks like Manchester United has at least agreed to personal terms with Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho

According to Bild, Manchester United’s first offer was €70 million.

Yikes...seems like the Red Devils have a long way to go in getting to where Borussia Dortmund wants that number to be.

Messi to Miami? (kicker)

Could FC Barcelona legend Lionel Messi have a spell with Inter Miami? German outlet kicker thinks there could eventually be a stint for Messi in Florida:

Lionel Messi (33) will probably renew his contract with FC Barcelona and agree to continue working after his active career. “In between”, however, the Argentine could be drawn to the MLS. Jorge Mas, co-owner of Inter Miami CF, has now confirmed that he and David Beckham have had talks with Messi. “I am optimistic that Lionel Messi will play in the Inter Miami shirt,” said Mas. Messi has also just bought an apartment in Sunny Isles Beach, Florida for $7 million.

Hoffmann wants out of Bayern (FussballTransfers.com)

As expected, Bayern Munich goalkeeper Ron-Thorben Hoffmann wants to leave the the club:

Ron-Thorben Hoffmann is looking for a new challenge. As the ‘kicker’ reports, the goalkeeper wants to change the second team in order to gain higher-class match practice. The Munich reserve was relegated to the regional league.

VfL Wolfsburg recently showed interest in Hoffmann. As an option, Bayern then extended the expiring contract of the 22-year-old by one year. Accordingly, one hopes for a transfer from the record champions. Meanwhile, Christian Früchtl is planned as the new number three.

The Empire State Building was lit up in red for Bayern (FCBayern.com)

Bayern Munich received a nice little honor when the Emprise State Building was lit up in red to honor the club.

“It was an honor to see one of the world’s most prestigious buildings light up for FC Bayern Munich, recognizing our success on the field with our historic season but also our work off the field,” said Jörg Wacker, FC Bayern board member responsible for internationalization and strategy to FCBayern.com. “New York was our very first home away from home, when we set up the office in 2014. Since then, we have worked hard to grow our fanbase, create mutually beneficial partnerships and support the growth of football in the Americas.”

PSG announced Wijnaldum (@PSG_English)

When Paris Saint-Germain formally announced the signing of former Liverpool midfielder Gini Wijnaldum, it officially ended one of the craziest transfer sagas we have seen of late:

Wijnaldum, of course, was heavily linked to Bayern Munich before it appeared that FC Barcelona had zeroed in on him. Just when everyone assumed the Dutchman was headed to Catalonia, however, PSG hustled in and snatched Wijnaldum away.
