Madrid planning bid for Coman? (Defensa Central)

Real Madrid is reportedly planning to jump into the sweepstakes for Bayern Munich winger Kingsley Coman — if Kylian Mbappe decides to stay with Paris Saint-Germain:

Kingsley Coman could have the hours counted at Bayern Munich. The Frenchman is negotiating a renewal with Bayern and, for the moment, he is not satisfied with the proposal. Sport1 assures that it already has offers from important clubs in the Premier and even Real Madrid is interested .

The Frenchman considers that he deserves a salary increase and asks, at least, 12-13 million euros per season. Bayern are far away, but they hope to retain him because he is an important footballer in the squad .

Today, at Real Madrid they have the signing of Kylian Mbappé as a priority. They do not plan to allocate money in other transfers such as Coman, unless the Frenchman renews his contract with PSG. If that happens, then yes, other options would be studied to reinforce the squad in different positions.

The trickledown effect on an Mbappe move could hit several clubs. If Bayern Munich truly wants to keep Coman, it might want to hit the negotiating table once more — only this time, with less yelling.

Anyway, Manchester United, Chelsea, and Liverpool were all allegedly interested in Coman, but United just signed Jadon Sancho, which effectively eliminates them from the competition.

Boateng to Roma or Monaco? (ESPN)

AS Roma and AS Monaco are both scoping former Bayern Munich center-back Jerome Boateng:

AS Roma and AS Monaco are two clubs considering signing free agent and former Bayern Munich and Germany centre-back Jerome Boateng, Corriere dello Sport writes, with the agent of the 33-year-old reportedly offering his client’s services to both outfits.

Boateng still has a lot to offer a club. The veteran will be a very solid addition to whichever team adds him.

Count Doku as part of Bayern’s roster for this season? Sith-mply put, things are getting “serious” (@iMiaSanMia)

Yup, that headline was a streeeeeeeeeetch to squeeze in a Star Wars reference, but I’d be shocked if Bayern Munich jumps all-in on Rennes forward Jeremy Doku at this point:

Griezmann headed for the discount rack with Coutinho? (@MatteMoretto)

FC Barcelona needs to unload some players. We already know that Philippe Countinho is one of them, but it looks like Antoine Griezmann could be another player on the chopping block:

Barça waiting for the correct offer. That’s how it is. Antoine Griezmann can leave. The Premier is very attentive and especially with money and players as exchanges. But let’s see what the Frenchman and his family think, who still have a lot of affection for Madrid. It’s not a surprise.

Spurs hot on Schick (ESPN)

Tottenham Hotspur is reportedly eyeing up Bayer Leverkusen striker Patrick Schick to either replace — or back up — Harry Kane:

Czech Republic striker Patrik Schick has been one of the stars of Euro 2020, with five goals in five games, and will surely attract transfer attention this summer.

Schick, 25, scored 13 times in 36 appearances for Bayer Leverkusen last season and Gazzetta dello Sport says that Tottenham are keen.

Tottenham’s new managing director of football, Fabio Paratici, was reportedly a fan of Schick’s when he was working at Juventus. Now Carlos Vinicius is heading back to Benfica after his loan, Spurs need a backup (and possibly even a replacement) for Harry Kane up front.

Leverkusen are well aware what their striker can do and have placed a valuation of €40m on Schick’s services.
