<div><p>Back in May, the Premier League champs <strong>Manchester City</strong> turned down an offer of €80m for their Germany star <strong>Leroy Sane</strong> from the Bundesliga champs <strong>Bayern Munich</strong>. Sane was Bayern’s priority this summer with both Arjen Robben and Franck Ribéry leaving the club so they tried to improve offer and wait for a positive answer. Everyone was waiting for waiting for him to chance leagues and go back in Germany due to his lack of Premier League appearances, but it seems that he changed his mind and wants to remain in the Premier League. His manager, Per Guardiola made it clear that he wants him to stay at the club and fight for his place in the starting XI. Sane himself reckons England is where the best players are competing, and he’s set to stay with the Citizens rather than return to the Bundesliga and sign with the Bavarian side.</p><p>Reports in Italy claiming that <strong>Ajax’s superstar Matthijs de Ligt</strong> had already decided on a move to the Serie A reigning champs <strong>Juventus</strong> letting his friends know that he’s ready to accept Juventus offer and after a month of intense negotiations with <strong>Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain</strong>. On the other side, the Spanish media outlets are reporting that De Ligt remains undecided and the influence of his family and former teammate <strong>Frenkie de Jong</strong> who are trying to convince him to accept Barcelona offer might have huge impact on his decision.</p><p>The Colombian forward<strong> James Rodrigues</strong> who in currently on international duty enjoying a great <strong>Copa America</strong> with his national team confirmed he had not discussed his La Liga future with Los Blancos manager <strong>Zinedine Zidane</strong>. He added that he’s thinking only about Copa America and that the decision of him remaining with <strong>Real Madrid</strong> for the next season depends on the club.</p><p><strong>The Brazilian superstar Neymar</strong> is desperate to return to La Liga giants <strong>Barcelona</strong> and leave France as fast as possible, verbally accepting Barcelona’s offer to spend the next five years at the club. If PSG will reach an agreement with Barcelona Neymar’s salary will drop to almost 50%. His priority is to restore his name and help Barcelona lift the Champions League trophy.</p><p><strong>Inter Milan</strong> are keen on signing Man United striker <strong>Romelu Lukaku</strong> this summer but unfortunately are unable to meet the Red Devils’ asking price of £75m so they decided to use <strong>Mauro Icardi</strong> in a swap deal. The Italian striker is reportedly not part of Conte’s plans for the next season and following his controversial season with the Italian side might accept to leave the club and sign with the Red Devils. Inter are very close to complete the deal for Lukaku but 1st they need to raise funds by selling some of their player if Man United won’t agree for a swap deal.</p></div>
