MADRID BEATS EUROPE’S BEST FOR 22-YO SUPERSTAR IN THE MAKE

Real Madrid have beaten Paris Saint-Germain, Liverpool and Manchester United among others to sign French star Aurelien Tchouameni.

According to the athletic the deal to bring the midfielder from Monaco to Madrid will cost more than a dazzling $148 million.

Tchouameni made a meteoric rise in the 2021/22 Ligue 1 season with Monaco and has become a mainstay in Didier Deschamp’s French squads.

The 22-year-old will join compatriot Eduardo Camavinga in Madrid’s midfield, while Los Blancos coach Carlo Ancelotti looks to refresh his team for the defense of La Liga and the Champions League title.

LEWA’S BLUNT BAYERN ADMISSION PAVES THE NEXT MOVE

Robert Lewandowski wants nothing more than to “leave Bayern” as the German heavyweights are ready to play hard about his future.

The Polish star has been with Bayern since 2014 and has scored goals for fun but would like to go elsewhere.

However, he only listens to offers from one club: Barcelona.

“I just want to leave Bayern,” Lewandowski told Sport Onet.

“Loyalty and respect are more important than work. It is best to come to a solution together.

“They didn’t want to listen to me until the end. Something died in me – and it’s impossible to get over it. Even if you want to be professional, you can’t make up for that. No other offer was considered by me except Barcelona. I want to leave Bayern, that’s clear.

“During so many years at the club I was always ready, available, despite injuries and the pain, I did my best. I think it is best to find a good solution for both sides. And not to look for a one-sided decision.

“What kind of player wants to go to Bayern, knowing that something like this could happen to them? Where is the loyalty and respect?

“I was always ready, I spent eight wonderful years here, I met great people and I would like to keep it that way.”

Bayern are at risk of losing Lewandowski for free next summer, as the 33-year-old still has a one-year contract with the club.

Will they cash in on him now, or will they keep a clearly disgruntled player on for another season?

$170M CHELSEA FLOP TO RETURN TO SENDER?

Fresh after winning Serie A with Inter Milan, Romelu Lukaku returned to Chelsea last summer for a stunning $170 million deal.

After a fast start, scoring three goals in three games, things quickly went awry as he scored just five from 23 appearances.

Now it appears that Lukaku wants out after one disastrous season at Stamford Bridge.

And according to football journalist Nicky Bandini, the Belgian wants to return to where he had his most successful period.

“Lukaku is definitely doing what he can to make that Inter move happen,” Bandini told Sky Sports News.

“He wants to go back – it’s no surprise, because he had the best season of his career at Inter, where he won the competition.

“He’s waiting for Thomas Tuchel to meet the new owners, but it seems there’s some movement from his agent to get back to London soon and meet Tuchel.

“Inter would like to make it happen, but because of their finances they can’t buy him back for the same amount they sold him. There could be a ladder agreement where they take him and pay an initial fee up front.”

WALES MANAGER REVEALS BIGGEST BALE CHALLENGE FOR NEXT MOVEMENT

Wales manager Robert Page believes Gareth Bale should be treated with caution at his next club after the attacker inspired his country to make it to the World Cup for the first time in 64 years.

Bale is looking for a new team after ending his turbulent nine-year stay with Real Madrid and insists he has “many offers” despite barely playing for Real during their La Liga and Champions League winning campaign.

Bale recalled his quality with an influential display in Wales’ 1-0 play-off overall win against Ukraine in Cardiff and Page says former Tottenham star Bale must find the right landing spot to get in top condition for the tournament in November.

Bale’s hometown club Cardiff, Newcastle and several MLS teams across the United States have all been touted as potential destinations.

The 32-year-old has won numerous medals at Real but had a long list of injuries during his last years in Spain and Page knows it’s important to manage his condition carefully.

“Don’t get me wrong, I’ve been a club manager myself and it’s difficult. When you try to create that environment and you have other world-class players around you,” Page told reporters on Tuesday.

“It’s harder to do that at a club where you have to have that blanket over the players and say, ‘This is how we’re going to do things and train today’.

“No disrespect to our changing rooms, but we don’t have 10 other Gareth Bales. “That will be his difficulty, finding someone who can manage him that way. He has to take that responsibility himself. That will determine whether he plays a lot of football.”
