Leroy Sane has “two offers from top clubs” if he decides to leave The Citizens next summer. It is believed that one of those teams is none other than long-time admirers Bayern Munich.

Manchester United will make “a significant effort” to sign Samuel Umtiti, 26, next summer. Barcelona are expected to put the Frenchman on the market due to their need of raising transfer funds in any way they can.

Both PSG and Chelsea have expressed interest in making a move for Juventus star playmaker Miralem Pjanic.

Arsenal are open to part ways with Henrikh Mkhitaryan, but he could remain at Roma since the Serie A giants want to make his loan move a permanent one.

Manchester United have triggered an automatic 12-month extension on Nemanja Matic‘s contract. The Serbian was due to become a free agent at the end of the current season.
