Bayern Munich chiefs have been left irritated by public comments made by their former president Uli Hoeness relating to David Alaba and the ongoing contract negotiations with the Austria international, Goal can reveal.
The 28-year-old – who is considered one of the most important players at Bayern – is yet to agree a new deal with the Bavarian giants, with his current contract coming to an end in 2021.
Alaba played a key role in helping Hansi Flick’s side seal the treble last season and the Champions League winners are naturally desperate to retain the services of the versatile defender for the long term.
Gareth Bale would inject some much-needed « magic » into Tottenham’s side should the Real Madrid forward return to north London, according to Harry Redknapp.
Tottenham are in negotiations with Madrid over a possible deal for Bale, who left Spurs for Los Blancos in a then world record €100 million (£85m/$110m) transfer in 2013.
Bale has helped Madrid win four Champions League trophies – scoring decisive goals in two of those finals – and two La Liga titles, but has fallen down the pecking order in the Spanish capital.
The 23-year-old has emerged as one of the top full-backs in the Championship and helped lead the Bees to the play-off final last year, where they fell to Fulham.
A number of other Premier League teams, including West Ham, have shown an interest in Henry.
Hellas Verona defender Marash Kumbulla has arrived in Rome ahead of his move to Roma from Hellas Verona.
The Albanian will join the Giallorossi while Gianluca Di Marzio has reported that 18-year-old Roma prospect Matteo Cancellieri will head in the other direction.
Several Chelsea higher-ups have concerns that Declan Rice isn’t worth the £73 million ($95m) fee he’d require, according to The Athletic.
The West Ham midfielder was released from Stamford Bridge six years ago due to technical deficiencies and some believe those problems are still present.
Chelsea boss Frank Lampard, though, would love to add the 21-year-old to his list of major summer acquisitions.
Newcastle right-back DeAndre Yedlin could be set for a move back to MLS, according to CBS Sports.
The 27-year-old came up with the Seattle Sounders before making a move to Tottenham following the 2014 World Cup.
Having fallen out of Newcastle’s first-choice lineup, Yedlin may be ready to move back to the U.S.
Sheffield United manager Chris Wilder has confirmed the club are interested in signing Arsenal forward Folarin Balogun.
Reports have claimed that the South Yorkshire club have had a £3 million ($4m) approach rejected, amid speculation Arsenal want a deal worth in the region of £15 million ($19m) for the 19-year-old.
Wilder, who has also been linked with a move for Liverpool striker Rhian Brewster, confirmed talks are ongoing to bring Balogun to Bramall Lane.
Barcelona made an attempt to sign Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang before the striker signed a contract extension at Arsenal.
The Gabon international committed to a three-year extension at the north London side, but Sky Sports reports made an official offer, while Inter considered making a move for him too.
Because of many reports about a interest of @FCBayern in Marcelo Brozović: this is NOT TRUE. the club decided: the player of does not have the necessary quality @SPORTBILD @altobelli13
Jose Mourinho says he tried to sign Gareth Bale for Real Madrid before the Welsh star made the switch from Tottenham, but he refused to confirm reports he wants to bring him back to the Premier League.
The winger’s agent has said that Bale wants to return to the north London side and a deal is currently being negotiated, while Manchester United have also been linked.
The 18-year-old impressed in the Eredivisie while on loan ADO Den Haag last season and decided to leave Feyenoord because the Rotterdam side would not guarantee playing time.
Manchester United are considering a move for Atalanta winger Amad Traore, the Manchester Evening News reports.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side apparently see the Ivory Coast forward as an alternative to Jadon Sancho, whom the Red Devils are pushing hard to sign from Dortmund.
United have reportedly been warned that Traore will not be available on the cheap, with the Premier League side having made contact with Atalanta to register their interest.
Jurgen Klopp says he will take a year-long sabbatical when his time at Liverpool comes to an end, while he has promised not to join a new club straight away.
« A lot of people ask me this question. I have never heard someone ask Pep Guardiola about that but his contract ends next year, » the German manager said in an interview with Leeroy Matata on YouTube when asked where he sees himself in four years.
« I’ve got four years left which feels like an eternity in football. A lot can happen during this time. I would assume that in four years I will think about whether to renew or not.
« If I don’t renew, I’ll go on holiday. When I leave Liverpool, I won’t take a new job the next day. That’s for sure. I will take a one-year break after Liverpool. »

The Bosnia & Herzegovina international has fallen out of favour under Mikel Arteta at the Emirates Stadium, with the likes of Kieran Tierney and Ainsley Maitland-Niles seemingly ahead of him in the pecking order.
And Leverkusen are apparently now interested in taking the 27-year-old back to the Bundesliga, with Schalke and Roma also in the hunt for the player who is available for as little as €10 million.

The Catalan side need to offload a few players before they can make new signings and are willing to part with Semedo.
While Ajax’s €25 million (£23m/$30m) asking price for Dest is beyond Barca’s grasp, they believe they could take him on loan with an option to buy him next season.
Gareth Bale’s agent Jonathan Barnett says that Tottenham are « close » to signing the Real Madrid winger although insists that the deal is not yet done.
« Gareth still loves Spurs, » Barnett told BBC Sport Wales. « We are talking [Spurs, Real and Bale’s camp]. It’s where he wants to be. »

Celtic are readying a third bid to sign Charlton left back Alfie Doughty, according to Football Insider.
The Scottish champions are said to have had two bids for the 20-year-old turned down by the London club, but are reportedly still confident of signing him during this transfer window.
Their latest bid is reportedly one of £800,000 (€870,000/$1m) plus add-ons, as they aim to replace the disgraced Boli Bolignoli, who has been loaned to Istanbul BB following his coronavirus breach.
Tottenham Hotspur are close to a deal for Real Madrid left back Sergio Reguilon, according to Talksport.
The 23-year-old Spain international, voted the best left back in La Liga last season after impressing on loan at Sevilla, has been heavily linked with Manchester United.
However Spurs – who are also linked with a move to bring back Gareth Bale from Real – are reportedly in pole position for Reguilon, with talks reportedly at an advanced stage over a £27.5 million (€30m/$35m) deal.
According to further reports, a major factor in Spurs moving ahead of Man United in the Reguilon race is their willingness to include a buy-back clause – something the Old Trafford club are refusing to do.
Ronald Koeman said Barcelona must sell before they can think about signing Lyon captain Memphis Depay as the head coach expects to start the La Liga season with no additions to the squad.
Depay has been tipped to reunite with former Netherlands coach Koeman at Barca following his exploits for Ligue 1 outfit and Champions League semi-finalists Lyon.
Arsenal goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez farewelled the Gunners in an emotional video ahead of his reported transfer to fellow Premier League club Aston Villa.
Despite helping Arsenal to FA Cup and Community Shield glory in the absence of injured starter Bernd Leno, Martinez is expected to join Villa in a £20 million (€22m/$28m) deal.
Roma have completed a deal for Hellas Verona defender Marash Kumbulla with the player to join the club officially this week.
Di Marzio reports the 20-year-old has signed a five-year deal with the capital club with an annual salary of €1.5 million.
Barcelona manager Ronald Koeman has insisted that there is no conflict between himself and Lionel Messi, following the club legend’s decision to reverse course and stay with the Catalan side.
Messi informed Barcelona of his desire to leave the club following the 2019-20 season, a frustrating campaign that saw Barca fail to win any trophies and finish with a humiliating 8-2 defeat to Bayern Munich in the Champions League.
Aston Villa captain Jack Grealish has admitted that it was 50-50 whether he’d stay after committing his future to the club on Tuesday.
Grealish signed a new five-year contract with Villa, ending speculation that linked him with a move to Manchester United among other teams.
The 25-year-old capped off a banner day by scoring the winner against Burton Albion in the Carabao Cup in a 3-1 victory.
Sead Kolasinac, Matteo Guendouzi and Lucas Torreira are all close to sealing moves away from Arsenal, according to the Mirror.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has re-signed with Arsenal on a three-year deal that could be worth up to £55 million ($70m) should he see out his contract, claims The Times.
The 31-year-old will earn around £350,000 a week once loyalty payments and bonuses are added to his increased base wage of £250,000.
Aubameyang scored in the Gunners’ first Premier League game of the season in a 3-0 win over Fulham.

Godin is close to finalising a move to Cagliari and that must be completed before Vidal’s own transfer to Milan can be completed.
Chelsea youngster Callum Hudson-Odoi is once again being targetted by Bayern Munich, reports the Daily Mail.
The Bundesliga giants made a move for the teenager last year and are now hopeful they could strike a deal before the current transfer window closes.
