LFC keeping an eye on Kimmich, Coman, and Goretzka (Liverpool Echo)

It appears that Liverpool is closely following the respective contract negotiations of Bayern Munich’s Joshua Kimmich, Leon Goretzka, and Kingsley Coman:

Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool are said to be “aware” of the current contract stance of Kingsley Coman, Joshua Kimmich and Leon Goretzka.

According to German journalist Florian Plettenburg, the Reds are monitoring the situation of the Bayern Munich trio. He states that Liverpool will ‘know’ that Kimmich, Goretzka and Coman are having issues agreeing new contracts with the German outfit.

Considering this, there is a possibility that the Reds could make a move for one or more of them should they fail to agree contract extensions.

Goretzka is now in the final year of his deal and is yet to extend at the Allianz Arena, whereas Kimmich and Coman both have two years left to run on their current deals.

Why stop there? TAKE THEM ALL!!!

Many Serie A and B teams would like to take the Frenchman on loan next season, whereas Bundesliga side Bayern Munich want to sign him permanently for their own crop of young players.

Ronaldo wants a chance (AS via kicker)

Could Juventus star Cristiano Ronaldo move on to Real Madrid or Paris Saint-Germain? At least one report from Spain thinks so:

Although Juventus Vice President Pavel Nedved has recently made it clear that he is planning firmly with Cristiano Ronaldo (contract until 2022) (“He will stay with us”), rumors of an early departure from the superstar persist. According to the Spanish “AS”, the 36-year-old Portuguese wants to leave the old lady this summer - either to switch back to Real Madrid or to join the star ensemble of Paris Saint-Germain. A move to PSG should only be possible if the French then let Kylian Mbappé move in the direction of Los Blancos early on. As of now, the striker will remain with PSG until his contract expires in 2022, in order to be available for free afterwards.
