Gossip Column: Boateng, Gnabry, Mascherano, Bailey, Wilshere, Lemar, Joao Mario, Alex Sandro, Arp


Wednesday, 13th December 2017

Bayern Munich defender Jerome Boateng might consider a move away from the club he has played for since 2011, saying that “moving has always been” in the back of his mind. Injuries have limited Boateng’s presence this season, but the Germany international is considered one of the best CBs in the world when fit.

One Bayern player might leave, but other might return to the club next summer. The club’s CEO, Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, has confirmed Serge Gnabry will return to Die Roten once his current season-long deal at Hoffenheim expires this summer.

Javier Mascherano has been linked with a move away from FC Barcelona, and the Chinese Super League might be his new destination since Hebei China Fortune are reportedly interested in the Argentina international.

Chelsea have made a £22 million offer for Bayer Leverkusen‘s winger Leon Bailey, but the Bundesliga side is reportedly not interested in selling the 20-year-old winger.

Manchester United have been looking for a new playmaker, and Joao Mario has lost his starting place at Inter Milan. These two could be a match made in heaven, and recent reports have indicated there’s a decent chance of a move here.

Manchester United, Chelsea, and Bayern Munich are all keen to make a move for Alex Sandro, as the Brazilian left-back is reportedly “eager” to leave Juventus.
