Daily Schmankerl: Manchester United planning to make a move for Bayern Munich’s Robert Lewandowski; Does Marc Roca favor Leeds United?; Marcel Sabitzer’s agent says the player will not leave; Will Gareth Bale stay in Spain?; and more!


Manchester United could join Chelsea FC and Paris Saint-Germain in jumping into the race for Bayern Munich star Robert Lewandowski:

Manchester United are prepared to make a surprise move for Bayern Munich star Robert Lewandowski if Barcelona are unable to agree a deal this summer, The Sun reports.

United are reportedly prepared to capitalize on their shortcomings and believe they can lure Lewandowski in a Cristiano Ronaldo-like deal. They could hand you a salary package of £400,000 a week.

Lewandowski has been more closely associated with FC Barcelona, ​​but the Catalan club is in financial trouble and may not be able to meet Lewandowski’s expected transfer fee and salary, even if the Polish international accepts a steep pay cut.

Marc Roca has reportedly turned down two La Liga offers and could be leaning towards a move to Leeds United:


The midfielder, who had received offers from LaLiga, has opted for Leeds to continue progressing professionally in football. After a stage of two seasons of few minutes (it is true), but of a lot of professional and personal learning at Bayern. There he has played 24 games and won two Bundesligas and a Club World Cup, Roca will grow in the Premier.

Roca was previously linked to both FC Barcelona and Real Betis.

If you’re the kind of person who loves the drama that surrounds sports, and you also love Bayern Munich, then this was a week for you.

This is what we have prepared for this episode:

  • A look at the latest news on Robert Lewandowski, his (alleged) pompous exchange with Julian Nagelsmann, and why it’s probably time to find a good deal and send him away.
  • Why there could be cracks in Nagelsmann’s foundation at Bayern Munch.
  • An update on Konrad Laimer and why it could take until July for teams to get serious.
  • An appreciation of Germany’s recent success.
  • The more than serious work of Bayern Munich to try to get Sadio Mane from Liverpool.

In response to recent reports that Bayern Munich would still like to sell client Marcel Sabitzer, the player’s agent, Roger Wittmann, reiterated Sabitzer’s desire to stay with the club:

If the answer is yes.

After getting a taste of first-team playing time at Anderlecht, Joshua Zirkzee would rather be at a club where he can continue on the pitch.

“I would prefer to have a guarantee (of playing time). That is certainly possible at Anderlecht, but also at another club. Even staying at Bayern is an option. I just want to gain confidence and feel at home in a club and in an environment,” Zirkzee said.

It’s hard to blame Zirkzee for feeling this way. Young and talented, a return to a slow path to development just doesn’t seem right for him.

Gareth Bale might not leave Spain after all. The Welshman could go to… Getafe? Bale’s agent reportedly made an inquiry to the club:

Gareth Bale (32), who signed for Real Madrid nine years ago for 100 million euros, can stay in Spain. His advisor has offered the attacker at FC Getafe, among others. This was confirmed by its president, Ángel Torres: “We will weigh the options.” Rayo Vallecano should also be an option. Background: Bale would like to stay in the Madrid area with his family. His contract with Madrid, current champions of the Champions League, expires on June 30.

How are the golf courses in Getafe?

FC Köln could be looking for Borussia Dortmund striker Steffen Tigges to help bolster their attack:

1. FC Köln has apparently found a new striker and is using BVB. According to Bildand kicker Steffen Tigges (23) is attracted to the Rhenish. Therefore, the transfer is a done deal and is imminent. Cologne should buy the attacker. Tigges’ contract with BVB runs until 2024.

The Cologne coach wanted to sign the player last summer, but the then BVB manager, Marco Rose, prevented the transfer. Now it seems to work on the second try with the striker, who hasn’t played since March with a broken left ankle.
