Bayern eyeing Madueke? (@iMiaSanMia)

Bayern Munich, Crystal Palace, Leeds United, Southampton, and Tottenham Hotspur are all reportedly kicking the tires on PSV Eindhoven winger Noni Madueke. Madueke is a 19-year-old English youth international, who is considered a big talent.

Bayern Munich, though, is not exactly in a position to get into any type of bidding war, especially for a player who would be a fourth winger (or fifth if you believe — like me! — that Jamal Musiala should be starting on the offensive flank):

This is not the first time that we have heard Bayern Munich connected to Madueke.

Booth pokes more fun as his hair (Instagram — tb.23)

Bayern Munich midfielder Taylor Booth has had a heck of a preseason — and what looks like a helluva ride in the barber’s chair. We had some fun with Booth about that and he had a good laugh about it as well.

Now, Booth hit Instagram to poke some fun at himself:

What a good kid with a great attitude.

If you can’t laugh at yourself, you can’t laugh at anyone. Nice work, Taylor!

More importantly, though, Booth has — by all accounts — had a strong preseason and looks more and more every day like another deft move by the Bayern Munich scouting department.

It was a crazy week in terms of Bayern Munich news and we’re talking about the absolute biggest stories!

  • Joshua Zirkzee’s preseason was bad, but he will get a chance to start over with a loan to RSC Anderlecht.
  • Joshua Kimmich and Leon Goretzka could both extend their contracts with the club shortly.
  • Bayern Munich’s rumored pursuit of RB Leipzig star midfielder Marcel Sabitzer.

Messi to PSG heating up (@FabrizioRomano)

Former (maybe!) FC Barcelona star Lionel Messi could be headed to Paris Saint-Germain:

PSG is confident a deal will get done:

And, it really looks like it’s happening:

Sargent to Norwich City? (@RGonzalezCBS)

Werder Bremen and USMNT striker Josh Sargent is reportedly drawing interest from Norwich City:

Netz to Gladbach (@borussia_en)

At one point, Bayern Munich was linked to former Hertha Berlin outside-back Luca Netz. The Bavarians missed the window to make that move, though, as Netz moved over to Borussia Mönchengladbach:

It looks like the boys played a little “Knockout” in their down time:
