Süle likely to renew with Bayern (Transfer Market Web)

Bayern Munich center-back and rumored Chelsea FC target Niklas Süle is reportedly ready to extend his deal by one-year — essentially delaying a decision on his future for one more campaign in Bavaria:

Playing for Bayern Munich since 2017/18, German international center-back Niklas Süle grew into a major Chelsea target, on Blues boss Thomas Tuchel’s suggestion. Bundesliga giants top brass, however, turned down Stamford Bridge side, and, according to Sport Bild, are now making plans to sign the player on a further long-term, beyond current June 2022 deadline.

Partaking into Euro 2020 campaign, Hoffenheim alumni is allegedly likely to accept Bayern offer, and keep up with his ongoing tenure with German giants. Turning 26 on September 3rd, Süle has so far collected 133 official caps for the team, scoring six goals therein. Besides, he already won 12 titles, home and international ones combined, as a Bayern player.

United urged to go after Lewandowski (Caught Offside)

Ex-Manchester United player Luke Chadwick says the Red Devils should make a run at Bayern Munich’s Robert Lewandowski:

“Without a shadow of a doubt (United should be in for Lewandowski),” Chadwick said. “The man’s record in the game is undeniable. It’s quite surprising after the last two seasons he’s had with Bayern that he’s looking to move, but similarly to Kane he’s not getting any younger; it might be his last opportunity to come and play in the Premier League, the best league in the world. “I’m sure all the big hitters in the Premier League will be looking at him. He’d be a great signing for United, we’ve mentioned Haaland and Kane, but he’s the other one who’d really offer that volume of goals that are realistic targets.”

PSG encouraged to go after Sanches (PSG Talk)

While there are no formal rumors linking Lille midfielder Renato Sanches to Paris Saint-Germain, at least one expert thinks the move would make sense:

French football pundit Daniel Riolo stated on the airwaves of RMC Sport (via Canal Supporters) that the capital club should be inquiring about Sanches since PSG wants to improve its midfield.

“If he erases the 2-3 imperfections he has, I think he is one of the best midfielders in Europe,” Riolo said. “He is in Lille what PSG has been looking for midfielders for a very long time. Renato Sanches, you have to take it. He will be one of the best. He has an activity, technical, and wins duels. Really, I find that this player is improving.”

Milan chasing GOAT-riozola (Transfer Market Web)

Recognizing you need greatness to achieve greatness, AC Milan is making contact with Real Madrid for former Bayern Munich outside-back Alvaro Odriozola:

As for the search for a new right-back, contacts continue with Alvaro Odriozola of Real Madrid, the Spanish international born in 1995. The formula on which we are thinking is that of a loan, given that the player would not fit into Ancelotti’s plans.
