Another pundit calls for City to get Lewandowski (Football Fancast)

When will people learn that Bayern Munich is not going to sell Robert Lewandowski this season:

With the transfer window set to shut on Tuesday night, it is looking increasingly likely that Manchester City won’t sign a striker, but Joleon Lescott has tipped them to sign Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski.

Pep Guardiola’s side have already missed out on their top target to replace Sergio Aguero after Harry Kane confirmed he would remain at Tottenham Hotspur, whilst they were also pipped to the signing of Cristiano Ronaldo by Manchester United last week.

“In terms of City, they’ve got a stronger squad than they had last year. They’ve acquired Jack Grealish, who, for me, is proven at this level and is an exciting talent. When they lost out on Kane and Ronaldo, Pep said there are three players who can choose where they want to play. One of them being Messi and one being Ronaldo and there was another. For me, that can only be Lewandowski. He’s spoken about wanting to leave and having another challenge, so it wouldn’t surprise me if he came through the door.”

No amount of money or videos of Pep Guardiola dancing will be enough to get the deal done:

Sunderland wants Hoffmann and Dajaku (The Roker Report)

Sunderland seems close to signing two Bayern Munich prospects for loan assignments: Goalkeeper Ron-Thorben Hoffmann and attacker Leon Dajaku:

Having moved on from talks with Vito Mannone, Sunderland look set to sign Bayern Munich’s 22 year old goalkeeper Ron Thorben-Hoffmann before tomorrow’s deadline.

The deal will be a loan for the season with a view to making it permanent, similar to the deal we’re also trying to strike for Bayern’s German youth international winger Leon Dajaku.

Hoffmann — a towering presence, standing at 6”4 - has played over 50 games for Bayern Munich II, and has also made appearances at youth level for Germany.

Dajaku is currently on loan at Union Berlin (and could move on again), while Hoffmann is waiting to land in a spot where he can play regularly.

Camavinga to Real Madrid (@FabrizioRomano)

Stade Rennais midfielder Eduardo Camavinga might have been linked to Bayern Munich earlier this summer, but he is going to Real Madrid. How do we know? He got the “Here we go!” treatment from Fabrizio Romano so you know it’s a done deal:

Here is a little more on Camavinga’s backstory:

Faivre linked to Milan (@Plettigoal)

Last week, we saw the rumors linking Bayern Munich Romain Faivre and lettuce tell you (damn, it I couldn’t resist...just hammer me in the comments), he might be going to AC Milan:

Bavarian Podcast Works: Season 4, Episode 4 (Bavarian Football Works)

Bayern Munich have finally ended their first run of games with four wins and one draw. With the international break set to start, it’s time to look back on some of the key stories from the past week, and what we can look forward to in the coming weeks of football.

In this episode, Tom and Ineednoname discuss:

  • Leroy Sane getting booed by Bayern Munich fans — is it justified?
  • The insane transfer spending around Europe, and what it means for Bayern’s own transfer dealings.
  • Marcel Sabitzer coming to Bayern after 30 years (actually days) of rumors.
  • What holes Bayern still need to fill + what needs to be done in the transfer window.
  • What we want to see from Hansi Flick during this international break.

Sanches to Wolverhampton? (Transfer Market Web)

Former Bayern Munich midifleder Renato Sanches might be moving to....Wolverhampton?

Wolverhampton Wanderers are interested in signing Renato Sanches from Lille in this transfer window, according to Calciomercato.com. The 23-year-old Portugal international has been on the books of the French club since the summer of 2019, and Premier League club Wolves are reportedly monitoring him. Negotiations ongoing.

Sanches started his professional club football career at Benfica and made a move to Bayern Munich in the summer of 2016. However, the 23-year-old failed to make an impact at the German and European giants and had a loan spell at Swansea City during the 2017-18 season.

Sanches has made 23 starts, one goal and 3 assist provided in Ligue 1 for Lille last season. The young midfielder has also made two starts and one substitute appearances in the Europa League for the French club this campaign.

Stanisic and Musiala recognized for big efforts (@WhoScored)

There is no doubt that Jamal Musiala and Josip Stanisic are two of Bayern Munich’s brightest young players. After both turned in excellent efforts against Hertha Berlin, the duo was recognized by @WhoScored:

The Schmankerl is a big Chris Richards house, so seeing our guy talking about his journey is always cool (even if we write about it before any of the mainstream folks jumped on it):
