Shaw attracts foreign suitors

Wolfsburg are in the running for Manchester United's Luke Shaw. The former Southampton left-back has just one year remaining on his contract at Old Trafford and it appears very likely he will be a free agent next year.

Despite being a bench warmer, Shaw has indicated that he does not intend to leave Man Utd this year. The 23 year old accumulated just eight starts in the Premier League last term having fallen out of favour under Jose Mourinho.

Meanwhile, Wolfsburg are keen on capitalizing on the situation and want to make a push for the signature of Luke Shaw this window in spite of him being available for pre-contractual talks in January 2019 when he enters the final six months of his deal at United.

Chelsea want Lewandowski

With Gonzalo Higuain en-route to AC Milan, Robert Lewandowski has emerged as the latest top target for Maurizio Sarri and Chelsea. The Polish International has reiterated his desire to leave Bayern Munich this summer and explore a new challenge in his career.

However, Bayern boss Niko Kovac has clearly declared that Lewandowski will not leave and the club will refuse to part ways with their Star striker at any cost. The 29 year old is contracted until 2021 with the Bavarians and is valued at £80 million. 

Lewandowski has also been linked with Real Madrid and it could be possible that he may force his way out of Bayern by handing a transfer request some point later during this window as he seeks to play in a new team and a different league.
