  • Transfer rumours continue to fill the headlines this summer as football clubs get back to the pre-season
  • Bayern Munich is eyeing up Tottenham Hotspur’s forward Harry Kane as a replacement to departing Robert Lewandowski
  • Former Manchester United skipper Wayne Rooney will take over as DC United head coach

Finding players of a similar profile to Robert Lewandowski is a difficult enough task, let alone trying to actually replace him.

That is the dilemma Bayern Munich find themselves in with the wantaway striker, however.

But the reigning Bundesliga champions might have identified the player who is closest in skill-set to Lewandowski, should he get his wish and leave for pastures new.

 

TOP STORY – KANE BAYERN’S TOP TARGET

Bayern have identified Harry Kane as the successor to Lewandowski, according to Kicker.

Kane’s contract with Tottenham expires in 2024 and the 28-year-old would command a significant transfer fee, but one that would be reportedly attainable for Bayern in the event Lewandowski leaves.

According to the report, Lewandowski hopes Bayern will accept Barcelona’s offer for him by Tuesday.

He is set to return for the commencement of pre-season training this week, but the German club seem to be preparing for the 33-year-old’s departure. They have already brought in Sadio Mane from Liverpool.

ROUND-UP

– Barcelona believe they will be able to sign Bernardo Silva from Manchester City, Mundo Deportivo claim.

– Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel is reluctant to bring Cristiano Ronaldo to Stamford Bridge this off-season, the Daily Mail reports.

– Juventus are looking to use the funds from Matthijs de Ligt’s sale to pay for Kalidou Koulibaly from Napoli, per Tuttosport

– Arsenal are in talks to sign Benfica left-back Alex Grimaldo after submitting an initial bid, The Express reports.

On to other news, former Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney is set to return to D.C. United to take over as the team’s head coach, according to The Athletic.

D.C. United will appoint Wayne Rooney as their new head coach, according to reports.

Rooney left Championship club Derby County in June, having overseen a difficult period for the club during his first job as a manager.

Having kept Derby up on the final day of the 2020-21 campaign, Rooney was unable to repeat that feat in the 2021-22 season, in large part due to a 21-point penalty for financial mismanagement by their ownership.

He was the subject of interest from his old club Everton in January, but declined the opportunity to be interviewed for a role subsequently filled by Frank Lampard.

Rooney is now set to take over at Major League Soccer side D.C., where he played in 2018 and 2019 before returning to England to join Derby.

The Athletic’s Pablo Iglesias Maurer reported on Sunday that terms between D.C. and Rooney – England and Manchester United’s record goalscorer – had been agreed.

Rooney scored 25 goals in all competitions for D.C. after joining from Everton in 2018. He will replace interim coach Chad Ashton, who last weekend apologised for an “embarrassing” 7-0 defeat to the Philadelphia Union.

Ashton has been in charge of D.C. since April following Hernan Losada’s departure. They sit 13th in the Eastern Conference with just five wins from 17 games in 2022.
