1. Lewandowski To Stay At Bayern

One of the hottest stories to have emerged for the upcoming summer transfer window is the grand departure of Bayern Munich’s star striker, Robert Lewandowski, to the reigning European Champions, Real Madrid.

However, according to German outlet Kicker, the Bavarians have ruled out any move linking their prized asset away from the Allianz Arena.

Chairman, Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, has made it absolutely clear that the club won’t be selling the Polish international, and that he is ‘one hundred percent going to play at Bayern Munich next season’.

2. Kroos To United

The recent developments at Old Trafford suggest that the currently strained relationship between Jose Mourinho and Paul Pogba appears to have skyrocketed the idea of the Frenchman leaving this summer.

And as per Mirror, the United boss has already got the perfect player in his mind whom he wants to bring in as the 25-year-old’s replacement.

It was claimed that the Special One has his eyes set on Real Madrid midfielder Toni Kroos, and is preparing to spend big for the German’s signature.

3. Aguero To Independiente

Aguero to his boyhood club is a transfer which won’t take place this summer, but has already made the headlines courtesy of the striker’s reiterated desire to return to his home country.

While talking to Fox Sports during the international break, the Argentine ace mentioned that his plan after completing his Man City contract in 2020 is to ‘return to my home at Independiente’.

Aguero had kick-started his career with El Rojo in 1997 before eventually moving to Atletico Madrid, and then to the Etihad in 2011.

4. Salah To Real Madrid

It’s actually a standard procedure to link the next big superstar with Real Madrid, and right now, no player other than Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah can be labeled as Madrid’s upcoming ‘Galactico’.

The Bernabeu outfit has locked the Egyptian King as their prime target for the summer, and according to Spanish news outlet Diario Gol, club president Florentino Perez is preparing to launch a mammoth player-plus-cash bid to land Salah.

It was claimed that Los Blancos are willing to offer Lucas Vasquez in addition to 150 million to the Reds in order to acquire their star forward.

5. Fabregas To Arsenal

One of the most surprising stories of the day comes from the Premier League, where Chelsea’s Cesc Fabregas wants to make a return to the Blues’ London rivals and his former club, Arsenal.

However, there’s a slight twist to the story, as the 30-year-old won’t be returning to play.

While hosting a live Q&A on Twitter, the ex-Barcelona midfielder was asked whether he’d return to Arsenal as a coach in the future if given the opportunity, to which Fabregas replied, “Of course.”
