Are Bayern Munich Getting Ready To Sell Manuel Neuer?

Neuer

Bayern Munich legend Lothar Matthaus has hit back at Manuel Neuer after his agent questioned the club’s ambition when compared to the Premier League’s top teams.

The German giants are undergoing a rebuild this summer as experienced stars Mats Hummels, Franck Ribery and Arjen Robben have all left the club.

Bayern have already splashed the cash on Lucas Hernandez (£68million) and Benjamin Pavard (£32m) but it has not stopped Neuer from raising doubts over his future.

Matthaus believes Neuer and his agent were wrong to publicly aim a dig at Bayern Munich as the captain could have spoken to the club’s top brass privately.

Klopp Admits Liverpool Have It All To Do In Germany After Anfield Draw

Jurgen Klopp admitted Liverpool only had themselves to blame after their Champions League hopes were left hanging in the balance.

Bayern Munich played with the composure of a team who have reached the Champions League semi-finals eight times in the last decade and they summoned an excellent defensive performance to secure a 0-0 draw.

But Klopp believes the result would have been different had his side’s passing been sharper, particularly during the first half when Sadio Mane missed the game’s best chance and fired wide with only Manuel Neuer to beat.

Liverpool With Injury Worries Before Bayern Munich Tie

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is ready to play Fabinho in central defence alongside Joel Matip if Dejan Lovren fails to recover from a hamstring injury.

Virgil van Dijk is suspended for the last-16 first-leg while Joe Gomez is sidelined with his recovery from a fractured leg.

Klopp said that Lovren is touch-and-go to make Tuesday’s match at Anfield.

‘Dejan, I actually have to wait minute by minute if there is a chance or not,’ Klopp said.

‘Fabinho? In the Champions League, against Bayern Munich, it is not an easy job but it makes sense, it depends all about how we defend in general.

Barcelona Sign Arturo Vidal From Bayern Munich

For the second time this summer, Barcelona has hijacked the transfer of a player heading to Serie A. First is was Malcolm, who was literally almost on the plan heading to Rome and AS Roma.

Now it is Arturo Vidal who seemed destined to join Inter Milan before Barca swooped in and convinced him to move to the Camp Nou instead. The transfer fee is reported to be €30 million.

Lewandowski Wants To Leave Bayern But He Has Nowhere To Go

Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski is still pushing for a move to this summer, despite the club appearing to put their foot down on the matter.

Lewandowski’s dream move is to Real Madrid and the Champions League winners have cash to burn after selling Ronaldo in a deal worth £100m and you would think that they would be jumping at the chance to sign a player who scored 41 goals in 48 matches last season.

But new Real Madrid coach Julen Lopetegui seems content to work with the young Spanish talent at his disposal while Bayern’s new boss Niko Kovac insists that the player is not for sale.

James To Stay On Loan At Bayern Munich

The desire to succeed at Real Madrid is something that is still very important to James Rodriguez, but he isn’t planning to leave Bayern Munich this summer.

James believes it would not be right to leave Bayern after just one season, especially after all the love the club and their fans showed him during the previous campaign.

In addition, Bayern feel that they were the ones who put trust in the talent of James over the past year, and that it is not right for Real Madrid to want him back after they let him leave through the back door.

Is James Rodriguez Heading Back To Real Madrid?

James Rodriguez could be in line for a shock return to Real Madrid, after giving signals he would welcome a fresh start at the Bernabeu.

The Colombian international spent last season on loan in the Bundesliga with Bayern Munich, although he had signed a new Madrid deal.

James’ agreement in Bavarian was initially set to see him complete a two-year loan, after which his Madrid contract would expire and Bayern would have the option to buy.

The Germans are keen to exercise this clause, but according to reports in Spain James is now looking to return to La Liga. He has dropped hints that he could start anew at the Bernabeu, report Marca.

Zinedine Zidane Insists Champions League Semi-Final Is ‘Far From Over’

Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane insisted progression to the Champions League final is no formality after his side won 2-1 in Wednesday night’s semi-final first leg at Bayern Munich.

Two high quality opponents produced numerous uncharacteristic errors, with Joshua Kimmich beating Real goalkeeper Keylor Navas at his near post to give Bayern the lead.

Marcelo equalised after 44 minutes, after Bayern had lost winger Arjen Robben and defender Jerome Boateng to injury.

And half-time substitute Marco Asensio struck after 57 minutes, capitalising on Rafinha’s sloppy pass, to give Zidane’s men the advantage ahead of next week’s second leg at the Bernabeu.

Champions League Semi-Final: Bayern Munich vs Real Madrid Preview

Bayern Munich defender David Alaba will face a late fitness before the first leg of their Champions League semi-final against Real Madrid at the Allianz Arena.

Alaba sat out Bayern’s final training session on Tuesday with a thigh strain, but coach Jupp Heynckes says a decision will be made early on Wednesday as to whether he will be in the squad.

Midfielder Corentin Tolisso is also a doubt while Brazilian defender Rafinha is likely to replace Alaba if he fails to make the squad.

On-loan Real Madrid midfielder James Rodriguez could start after being used as a substitute in the 3-0 victory over Hannover on Saturday.
