Bayern Munich have slapped a massive fee on the head of one of their star men, while Chelsea and Real Madrid are reported to have agreed terms on a €200m player swap, according to Wednesday’s European papers.
BAYERN STICK LOFTY FEE ON LEWANDOWSKI
Bayern Munich have reportedly told Robert Lewandowski’s suitors they can sign the striker this summer if they meet their £132million asking price.
The Poland star has found himself tipped with a move away from Bayern once again this summer, with Real Madrid thought to be leading Chelsea and United for his signature.
But Bayern will demand top whack for their free-scoring frontman and reports in Spain claim they will seek €150million (£132m) should anyone look to prise him away.
At 30 years old later this year, the transfer fee may raise a few eyebrows and could be quite the calculated risk for his suitors.
Of the three, Diario Gol reckons Bayern are said to be most in favour of doing a deal with Real. The Bavarians are looking to turn James Rodriguez’s loan into a permanent deal this summer and could possibly look at using their interest in Lewandowski as leverage.

LIVERPOOL GIVE NEW KEEPER HOPE
Real Madrid star Keylor Navas is so disgruntled by the club’s ongoing quest to replace him that he has already told teammate Cristiano Ronaldo he wants out this summer.
That’s according to Spanish outlet Diario Gol, who suggest the Costa Rican has also told Ronaldo he wants to make Liverpool his next club.
Jurgen Klopp is on the lookout for a new goalkeeper this summer, with the Reds strongly linked with Roma custodian Alisson Becker.
But the Serie A giants will fight hard to keep the Brazilian, who is also being tracked by PSG and tipped to command a world-record fee for a goalkeeper this summer.
However, the Reds could have more success with Navas, who looks set to depart the Bernabeu this summer and could be allowed to move to Anfield for around £30million.
And with Navas reportedly telling Ronaldo he wants to try his luck at Anfield, a swoop for the Reds could tick plenty of boxes.
The report adds that Navas isn’t the only Real Madrid star making a move to Liverpool their top focus this summer; midfield star Dani Ceballos, who has made just two starts in LaLiga this summer, has also told the club he wants to be allowed to move to Anfield.
And it’s claimed Liverpool will try and tempt Real by offering a combined £60million (€68million) for the duo.
