According to French publication L’Equipe, as relayed by Fichajes, Real Madrid are set to face serious competition from Ligue 1 giants Olympique Lyon in the race to sign Bayern Munich star Corentin Tolisso.
The 27-year-old came through the youth ranks at Lyon and established himself as one of the finest midfielders in Ligue 1 with Les Gones. After making 160 appearances for the club, Tolisso moved to Bayern Munich in the summer of 2017 but has endured a difficult time in Bavaria due to injury issues.
Chelsea FC manager Thomas Tuchel allegedly wants his club to make a move for Real Madrid defender Eder Militao. If true, would that mean Chelsea is moving on from a pursuit of Bayern Munich’s Niklas Süle?

RB Leipzig could potentially overtake Borussia Dortmund on Red Bull Salzburg forward Karim Adeyemi if the player decides he wants more money:
Where is Karim Adeyemi going? The Red Bull Salzburg striker is one of the most sought-after talents in Europe. The 20-year-old recently turned down an offer from FC Barcelona and, according to SPORT1 information, will now choose between RB Leipzig and BVB.
So far, BVB has been the favorite for a change and sports director Sebastian Kehl called him “an interesting player” in the STAHLWERK one-two
But now Leipzig could intervene. According to Bild, the Saxons offer the national player even more salary than Dortmund. However, the advance from Leipzig was unsuccessful with Adeyemi and the striker would continue to favor BVB, according to Bild.
According to SPORT1 information, Adeyemi has not yet made a final decision between the two clubs.
Bayern Munich star Thomas Müller has been — loosely — linked to a transfer to Everton and things spiked a bit after quotes emerged of Müller new Toffees praising Frank Lampard:
“He was a super player. He played practical football. Technically very good, super shooting technique, super with long balls — a midfielder who could work and be dangerous in front of goal at the same time. He simply knew: these are the things you need to do to win football matches. He was a player I can really relate to,” Muller said.
Bayern Munich legend Karl-Heinz Rummenigge is headed to the Italian Football Hall of Fame:

As was announced by the FIGC, Italian football’s governing body, former German player Karl-Heinze Rummenigge, former Inter defender Armando Picchi, and former Inter coach Luigi Simoni were all granted the honour along with a group of other men and women who have left their mark on Italian football.
Karl-Heinz Rummenigge played for Inter between 1984 and 1987. In that time he made 64 appearances for the Nerazzurri and managed to score 24 times. He won the European cup twice whilst a player at Bayern Munich.
