Bayern Munich’s name has also been mentioned in the rumour mill, considering that the German champions have made it a habit of raiding fellow Bundesliga clubs for top talents year after year.
However, Falk has dismissed any notion that Haaland could be heading for Allianz Arena this summer, instead claiming that the 20-year-old would favour a move abroad. The BILD Sport journalist then lists Barcelona, Real Madrid and Chelsea as the young striker’s three preferred destinations.
Even though Haaland’s preference to sign for the Blaugrana over Bayern Munich comes as a boost, a move for him might be out of reach this summer, given their financial predicament. Barcelona have already bolstered their attacking unit this summer with the acquisitions of Sergio Aguero and Memphis Depay – both on free transfers.
Borussia Dortmund is going to have to have someone start screen phone calls at this point.

One of the transfer rumors that has always made the least amount of sense to me is Bayern Munich’s alleged interest in Stade Rennais midfielder Eduardo Camavinga. Camavinga is certainly a young talent, but he is expensive and plays a position (for now) that is occupied by two world class players (Leon Goretzka and Joshua Kimmich), one really good player (Corentin Tolisso), one somewhat highly-regarded player (Marc Roca), and one jewel of the youth campus (Torben Rhein).
Anyway, here is why ESPN thinks Bayern Munich should splurge on the young Frenchman:
One of the most financially well-run clubs in Europe, even Bayern are feeling the pinch of the pandemic and the noises coming out of the Allianz Arena are that there will be no further big transfers after the arrival of Upamecano. However, with Camavinga’s contract running out next summer, beating the competition to his signature would be a spectacular statement and Bayern may have the funds to make it happen if they move on Corentin Tolisso and Kingsley Coman. Though the elegant 18-year-old midfielder failed to reproduce the highs of his breakthrough season at Rennes’ last campaign, Camavinga will be world-class one day.
It seems like Bayern Munich is officially out of the race for PSV Eindhoven’s Denzel Dumfries:
PSV Eindhoven defender Denzel Dumfries has been linked with Everton and Bayern Munich in recent weeks. However, Bild claims that Bayern are unlikely to move for the Dutch international who will cost around €16 million this summer.
Bayern’s withdrawal from the race will come as a major boost for Everton, who are keen on signing the player. While Bayern pulling out of the race is good news for Everton, the deal is unlikely to be completed until their managerial situation is resolved.
Could Everton’s James Rodriguez be headed to Italy?
Milan are looking to replace Hakan Calhanoglu and could make a move for Everton playmaker James Rodriguez. According to Il Corriere dello Sport, the Rossoneri are studying the market for a new trequartista after Hakan Calhanoglu left on a free transfer to join local rivals Inter this week.
The newspaper reports the Colombian feels left behind and has started looking at different alternatives after Carlo Ancelotti left Everton to re-join Real Madrid in La Liga. Rodriguez moved to Everton from Real Madrid on a free transfer in September 2020 and contributed six goals and five assists in his 23 Premier League games with the Toffees. The Colombia international is currently tied to the club until June 2022 and Everton have a club option to extend his current deal with one more year.
