Bayern Munich to rival Real Madrid for €100m-rated Osimhen

Victor Osimhen is a man in demand. Real Madrid have eyes on the striker but if they’re not careful, Bayern Munich could pinch him from right under their noses.

The German giants may reportedly try to outbid their rivals by offering Napoli over €100 million in next summer’s transfer window.

Marcelo to leave Real Madrid?

The Brazilian full-back has reportedly told Real Madrid that he intends to leave the club at the end of the season.

Despite being named as captain, Marcelo has barely featured under new manager Carlo Ancelotti. The 33-year-old has spent the bulk of the season struggling with a muscle injury.

His former club Fluminense are favorites to re-sign him if he does indeed leave Spain. [El Nacional – in Catalan]
