Daily Schmankerl: Bayern Munich quit Florian Neuhaus pursuit? Bayern, Juventus, Real Madrid eye the young AS Monaco; Erik ten Hag at the head of FC Barcelona; Barca to sue Manchester City’s Raheem Sterling ?; and more!


Bayern Munich have been closely linked with Borussia Mönchengladbach midfielder and Germany international Florian Neuhaus for about a year now, but as Neuhaus’s career progression has slowed, interest from the Bavarians may have waned:

Florian Neuhaus is currently only a reserve at Borussia Mönchengladbach. Manu Kone got ahead of the international. Is this the reason why the transfer from Neuhaus is far away? Sky reporter Marc Behrenbeck said in Transfer Update – die Show: “He has an exit clause for 40 million. And for the moment, the road is very far. The plan is first to get back on track. Because he arrived in the first real crisis. Neuhaus has only shot two shots on goal all season. Behrenbeck added: “Bayern Munich are completely cold and also all the big clubs.”

Another subject with the Foals is the future Denis Zakaria, whose contract expires in June 2022. Sky Transfer expert Max Bielefeld on this subject: “He rejected Naples, also AS Roma, who are now also still interested . Then he changed advisers. The point is that AS Roma are still interested in him, we can confirm that. FC Barcelona make beautiful eyes. They are looking for a six man physique.

It’s hard to see where Neuhaus would fit into the Bayern Munich roster next season. With Joshua Kimmich, Leon Goretzka, Marcel Sabitzer, Thomas Müller and Jamal Musiala all undoubtedly forming the basis for the team’s three starting midfielder positions next season, Neuhaus would seem overdone in this position.

Looks like Bayern Munich, Juventus and Real Madrid all look like the same youngster РAS Monaco midfielder Aur̩lien Tchouameni:

Aurélien Tchouameni is a target for Juventus, but several European clubs also want to sign him and they will make sure he does not go to Turin. The latest to be linked with a move for him is Bayern Munich, with the Germans looking for a replacement for Corentin Tolisso.

Tolisso has been a target for Juve before and Calciomercato says Bayern see Tchouameni as their heir. They won’t renew the deal for the World Cup winner who has been an injury-prone player for much of his time in Bavaria and they would move to Tchouameni instead.

Juve will see this competition from them as a serious threat to the AS Monaco midfielder’s landing. Bayern remain the dominant club in Germany and won the Champions League in 2020.

They also have a young manager in Julian Nagelsmann and he could convince the 21-year-old to move to Munich instead of Turin. Juve will do everything possible to sign him, but he is not their only target in midfield at the moment. .

If they miss his signing, they might try harder to bring Paul Pogba back to Turin. However, Tchouameni is much younger and he would provide more years of active football for the Bianconeri.

Sport1 also report that Real Madrid are in the mix for Tchouameni:

Real Madrid are ready to cash in a lot of money in the next transfer windows. In addition to Kylian Mbappé, his colleague from the France team Aurélien Tchouameni should now also be in the sights of the royal family.

The 21-year-old AS Monaco midfielder is said to be very popular with Real Madrid officials, according to a report from Marca. Tchouameni has a contract with the Monegasque until 2024. Monaco paid 18 million euros in transfer fees to Girondins Bordeaux for the midfielder last year. According to Transfermarkt, Tchuaméni has a market value of 35 million euros.

In terms of his game, the French international is very reminiscent of his compatriot Paul Pogba from Manchester United. Due to Ngolo Kanté’s failure, Aurélien Tchouameni has also won more and more in the national team and recently played the full 90 minutes of the triumph in the Nations League final against Spain.

The main target for Los Blancos, however, remains Mbappé, with whom they will be able to negotiate a contract from next winter.

Germany have done pretty well so far and continue to build on their winning streak against Romania in the game against North Macedonia. Coach Hansi Flick will undoubtedly have several headaches when it comes to selection, and defense is said to be an area he would like to master. Meanwhile, Dayot Upamecano and Benjamin Pavard haven’t really had a good time with France and Bayern Munich. Will they be able to turn the tide and start performing consistently at the highest level? That remains to be seen.

When Bayern and the Bundesliga are involved there is always so much to talk about, which is why in this module we will also be looking at the forms of other BuLi clubs.

  • Germany’s defense situation; The situation of Bayern in defense.
  • Nagelsmann’s lack of rotation.
  • Why Timo Werner shouldn’t leave for Germany.

With Ronald Koeman firmly in the hot seat at FC Barcelona, ​​Ajax’s Erik ten Hag could be his replacement:

Reports in Spain suggest that another Dutchman – Ajax boss Erik Ten Hag – is the preferred option to take over Barcelona if Joan Laporta decides to leave Ronald Koeman.

The Dutchman is under pressure at Camp Nou after Barca’s slow start to the season. Ronald Koeman’s future, according to Luis Rojo de Marca, depends on the results of three games coming this month.

After a terrible start to the season on all fronts, the manager has been the subject of much criticism. Although his start to the championship was slow, it was his poor start to the Champions League campaign that caused his resignation to be talked about.

Barcelona’s worst tournament start in 20 years came after back-to-back three-goal defeats to Bayern Munich and Benfica. The team is currently ranked last in their group. The three important matches are the league fixture against Valencia, the UCL match against Dynamo Kiev on Matchday 3 and El Clasico. All three games are expected to take place in a week’s time and are expected to be tough competitions.

FC Barcelona will pursue Manchester City star Raheem Sterling if Ousmane Dembele:

Whether FC Barcelona can imagine signing Raheem Sterling is not entirely new. But neither are the financial problems of the Catalans.

Therefore, the transfer of such a star player as Sterling represents a big challenge for Barca. The Spanish newspaper Sport now reports that a concrete interest in the attacking player depends on Ousmane Dembélé’s stay at Camp Nou.

If the Frenchman, who has become a shooting star at Borussia Dortmund, decides not to extend at Barca, then the Catalans would approach Sterling and his club Manchester City. Dembélé’s contract expires in the summer of 2022. He missed the start of the season due to an injury.

Even with Borussia Mönchengladbach preparing an offer to extend Denis Zakaria’s contract, FC Barcelona are hiding:

Barcelona could replace Denis Zakaria if he can’t sign Paul Pogba or Franck Kessie, Mundo Deportivo have said. The Catalan club face great competition for targets Pogba and Kessie and could see either target move towards one of their rivals. But the Borussia Mönchengladbach star has established himself as an alternative and will also be available on a free transfer at the end of the season.

With his contract with the German club expiring, the Swiss midfielder will likely change tune as early as January, with Roma who after summer interest are ready to take the plunge in the next window of the transfer market.

He is not Xhaka but, for Mourinho, Zakaria is suitable for his 4-2-3-1. And with a contract expiring after a few months, it will be easier to snatch him from ‘Gladbach for an advantageous amount: valued last summer at 20 M €, in January the promotion 96 will be able to leave the Bundesliga club for less. half.

If there were to be a barometer to measure whether Hansi Flick’s Germany is actually better than Joachim Löw’s Germany, this would be it. Under their former manager, Germany had lost to North Macedonia (albeit a North Macedonia with Goran Pandev); the loss was Germany’s first in around two decades in a World Cup qualifier. The opposition was the same today and as long as Romania were able to beat Armenia, the stake for Germany was qualifying for the 2022 Qatar World Cup.

Hansi Flick made some notable changes. As Antonio Rüdiger was absent due to injury, he inserted Thilo Kehrer in the heart of the defense next to Niklas Süle, played David Raum in the left back lunge and replaced Jonas Hofmann with Lukas Klostermann for the right back lunge. . He also left out Leroy Sané in favor of Kai Havertz for this one.
