Daily Schmankerl: Bayern Munich’s rumored offer to Ousmane Dembele revealed; Sasa Kalajdzic chased by Manches…
If this story is true, Bayern Munich could be poised to add another big salary to its payroll. Bayern Munich will reportedly offer a contract worth €18 million per year to sign Barcelona forward Ousmane Dembele in a Bosman move. According to a report by French publication L’Equipe, Bayern Munich and Ousmane Dembele are in talks over a possible Bosman move in the summer transfer window. You have to think that if this does happen then Serge Gnabry’s days at Bayern Munich are numbered. Regardless of all of that, the links to Dembele are still very sketchy, so all of this should definitely be taken with a grain of salt — especially give the rumored salary requirement. VfB Stuttgart striker Sasa Kalajdzic is becoming more and more popular by the day. VfB Stuttgart striker Sasa Kalajdzic is expected to leave the club this summer with reports claiming Bayern Munich have already made their move. The 6ft 7in frontman has scored 24 goals in 57 games since joining the Bundesliga side in 2017 which has led to a number of top clubs queueing up to sign the 24-year-old when his contract expires this summer. Benfica, Newcastle, Borussia Dortmund, Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester United are also said to be among the admirers, with German news outlets Bild and Kicker reporting that Bayern Munich have already made contact with Kalajdzic’s representatives.
It does seem, however, that Bayern Munich is the leader in the clubhouse at this stage. According to Fabrizio Romano, FC Barcelona is still Robert Lewandowski’s ideal destination despite alleged interest from clubs like Chelsea FC, Manchester United, Liverpool, and others: Despite Paris Saint-Germain and Chelsea interest since last summer, Robert Lewandowski’s priority is only Barcelona as things stand. According to reports captured by Sky, Lewandowski is willing to take a €118,000 per week pay cut to move to FC Barcelona: Robert Lewandowski is willing to take a £100,000-a-week wage cut to leave Bayern Munich and join Barcelona, according to Spanish publication Mundo Deportivo. It has been claimed the Polish ace has already agreed a three-year contract at the Nou Camp and his agent Pini Zahavi is believed to be putting pressure on Bayern to negotiate with Barca imminently.

There is no doubt that Chelsea is going to have to unload quite a few players during this summer transfer window. Erik Ten Hag has been urged by Netherlands legend Marco Van Basten to sign Chelsea winger Hakim Ziyech in the summer transfer window.
According to the Daily Mail, Ziyech and Ten Hag have previously worked together. Since signing for Chelsea, Ziyech has picked up a Champions League, Super Cup and Club World Cup- but has only made 12 Premier League starts this season. Ziyech has 14 goals and 10 assists to his name in 81 appearances for Chelsea, while he managed 49 goals and 81 assists in 165 games for Ajax. It appears that Paris Saint-Germain is the leader of the pack to sign Liverpool’s Sadio Mane. TRUE✅ If Sadio Mané will leave @LFC the big favorite for a Transfer is @PSG_inside.
