Bayern target Mount
Thomas Tuchel hopes to bring Mason Mount to Bayern Munich, according to the Sun.
The Chelsea midfielder is out of contract next season, and he could move on a free transfer next year.
“He has only been in the job for a few days and wants at least three or four matches to properly size up his new squad before drawing up transfer plans for the summer.
“But Tuchel is a huge fan of unsettled Mount who is in a contract stand off at Stamford Bridge.
“And there are already early suggestions the six-times European champions will approach Chelsea chairman Todd Boehly about striking a deal in the summer.
“There has been no contact whatsoever between the two parties so far.”
Barcelona want Aubameyang back
The Mirror reports that Barcelona want to re-sign Pierre-Emerick Auabameyang from Chelsea.
The veteran Gabonese forward could be an understudy to Robert Lewandowski, according to the story.
“That’s in stark contrast to how he’s fared under Graham Potter, scoring just three goals in 17 games and being left out of the Blues’ Champions League squad in favour of newer additions in west London. With Potter and co opening to sanctioning his departure, Aubameyang is dreaming of playing for Barcelona again – and fresh suggestions from Catalunya mean that it could become a reality.
“Barca are keen on recruiting a backup striker who can chip in with goals and offer 34-year-old talisman Robert Lewandowski occasional rests. The Pole has largely been prolific since joining from Bayern Munich last summer but he’s only managed two goals in his last 10 games for club and country.”
United prepare Kane bid
The experienced England international has been linked with Unite for years.
The paper claims: “Kane has been linked with a move away from north London this summer amid the disarray surrounding Spurs, following Antonio Conte’s dramatic sacking this week.
“The England captain’s future lies in the balance and it’s unlikely he’ll want to commit another season at Spurs, which has piqued the interest of a number of clubs.
“One of those teams includes Erik ten Hag’s Man United, who have long been admirers of the Three Lions’ all-time record goalscorer.
“The 29-year-old has been on United’s shortlist since bursting onto the scene and it seems the club’s chiefs are finally preparing to make a bid for the Tottenham star.”
Chelsea resist Barry move
The Telegraph reports that Chelsea hope to keep Anthony Barry out of the clutches of Bayern Munich following Thomas Tuchel’s appointment.
“Bayern have now made a compensation offer to take Barry, who wants to join Thomas Tuchel’s coaching staff in Germany, but it is understood to fall well short of Chelsea’s valuation.
“Telegraph Sport first revealed that Chelsea were braced for a battle over Barry after Tuchel’s appointment at Bayern and that the former midfielder was interested in working with him in Germany.
“Barry has expressed a wish to join Tuchel at Bayern but the 36-year-old is under contract to Chelsea and the Bundesliga giants have not offered sufficient compensation.”
