PSG submit offer for Mauro Icardi, Bayern Munich make move for Borussia Dortmund star and transfer target to snub Chelsea in favor of Barcelona.
After joining the French giants on a season-long loan last summer, the Argentine striker managed 12 goals in 20 Ligue 1 appearances in his maiden season at the club.
The Nerazzurri included a €70m buy-back clause in Icardi’s contract upon his season-long loan move to PSG last summer but the French champions do not intend to meet that valuation owing to COVID-19.Icardi, who has scored 20 goals in 31 appearances for PSG in all competitions in the 2019/20 season, is also eager to extend his stay in Paris. The striker’s relationship with his parent-club Inter is already on the ropes due to the acrimonious circumstances amid which he was forced out last summer.
Get French Football News had reported earlier this month that Inter are aware of PSG’s stance on Icardi’s valuation and are willing to negotiate down their asking price of the Argentine, as their manager Antonio Conte has no desire to welcome back Icardi at the San Siro.At a time when the Red Devils are reportedly devising plans to raise funds for the transfer of Sancho, the news that Bayern are enquiring for the 19-year-old might be worrying for them.

Dortmund also have an agreement in place with Sancho that states that they won’t stand in the way of the England international leaving the club if someone meets their asking price of him, which is reported to be in the region of €120 million.
The report adds that while the future of the transfer market is unknown amid the coronavirus crisis, Dortmund are confident they can still have a huge payday when Sancho eventually leaves the club, with the Bundesliga title challengers still wary of letting him leave on a cut-price deal.With the likes of Chelsea, PSG and Barcelona all keeping tabs on the 30-year-old, the Bosnian midfielder has decided in favor of a move to the Nou Camp.
Barcelona have reportedly won the race for Juventus midfielder Miralem Pjanic after the Bosnian international allegedly told those around him that he will only join the La Liga leaders.
Pjanic joined Juventus from fellow Serie A outfit AS Roma in a €32m deal in 2016 and has helped the Old Lady win back to back Serie A titles during his first two seasons in Turin.His phenomenal performances in Juve colors have attracted the interest of potential suitors, including Chelsea, PSG, and Barcelona.
However, Mundo Deportivo reports that the Bosnian international has already made up his mind in favor of a move to the Catalonian side ahead of next season.
