Juve back in for Tolisso? (Forza Italian Football)

Based on a report from Gazzetta Dello Sport, Forza Italian Football wrote up a story detailing that Juventus could have interest in Bayern Munich midfielder Corentin Tolisso if Weston McKennie moves on. With the deadline rapidly approaching, it seems like a lot of dominoes would have to fall for all of that to happen:

Juventus have begun compiling a list of players to pursue should American midfielder Weston McKennie leave the club this summer. McKennie could leave Serie A and has been linked with multiple Premier League clubs and is reportedly keen on leaving Juventus should an offer be made. He is less interested in West Ham United and Aston Villa, but is intrigued by a move to Tottenham Hotspur

Should he leave, La Gazzetta dello Sport report that Bayern Munich’s Corentin Tolisso is a serious option. The Frenchman has been linked with various clubs such as Manchester United over the summer.

The fluid transfer situations between Bayern Munich and Marcel Sabitzer and the Bavarians and Jonas Hofmann make it tough to figure what will happen with Tolisso — and just how likely Bayern Munich would be to let him leave.

If Tolisso stays, it would almost be guaranteed that he leaves the club on a free transfer next summer.

After downing FC Köln and Bremer SV, Bayern Munich steamrolling into this weekend’s Bundesliga tilt with Hertha Berlin.

The Bavarians will play host to Die Alte Dame and should have some key players rested. Robert Lewandowski and Leon Goretzka did not even make the trip to Bremen for the DFB-Pokal match (and it is probably a good thing they were held back given the 12-0 final score), which could be dangerous for Hertha Berlin.

Imagine facing Robert Lewandowski with fresh legs?

Yikes.

Things could get rough for Hertha Berlin. Anyway, here is what we have on tap:

  • A quick look at the recent form of both sides.
  • A guess at Julian Nagelsmann’s lineup for the match.
  • A prediction on the game.
