Lewandowski may just have broken Gerd Müller’s record for most goals in a single Bundesliga season, but not everything is rosy in the garden of the Bayern Munich striker.
The Pole is reported to be unhappy about the club’s transfer dealings, part of the background discontent that saw manager Hansi Flick leave his job at the end of the season.
That means the newly appointed Julian Nagelsmann and the club hierarchy have to assure him that the club are heading in the right direction or he may be seeking a move.
If he became available, Chelsea would definitely be interested in acquiring his services.
Mo Salah may just have come of the back of another successful Premier League season at Liverpool, scoring 22 Premier League goals and five assists, but he is not necessarily content with his lot on Merseyside.
Earlier in the season, reports began to emerge that the Egyptian captain was unhappy after being overlooked for the captaincy in a European game, and there have been reports that eh is unsettled.
He is under contract until 2023, but has refused to sign a new deal so far, with suggestions he may want to move away this summer. Liverpool will not want to lose him but, If he does succeed in forcing his way out, PSG and Real Madrid are both potential destinations.
Paul Pogba’s future at Old Trafford has been uncertain for some time, and there were strong rumours linking him with a move away last summer after his agent indicated he was open to a new challenge,
He will have a year left ion his current contract this summer, and United are willing to offer him a new deal. But they have also let it be known that they are not prepared to enter into prolonged negotiations.
Either accept what is on offer or who will be sold whilst United can still get good money for him. Former club Juventus would be sure to be interested, alongside long-term admirers Real Madrid.
Lukaku has just come off the back of an excellent season with Inter Milan, helping them to their first Serie A title in 10 years, scoring 30 goals and 10 assists in all competitions.
However, his future at the club is now in serious doubt following the departure of manager Antonio Conte. The Italian has left because the club’s owners , the Kuning Group, have demanded that the wage bill be trimmed by between 15% and 20%, and at least €100 million raised from the sale of players.
Lukaku is firmly in the bracket of those who might be sold, with a transfer fee of £90 million.
He has been linked with a return to the Premier League with both Manchester City and Chelsea interested in signing him.
David de Gea
It might be that the last memory Manchester United fans have of goalkeeper David de Gea have of him is his penalty miss in the final of the Europa League.
The 30-year-old is the highest paid player at Old Trafford, and remains under contract until 2023, with the option for a further year, but his future with the Premier League club is by no means assured.
He faces intense competition for the number one jersey at Old Trafford from Dean Henderson, who has made it clear he is prepared to push through his own exit if he is not given preference.
United might decide that Henderson, who is only 24, ahs a much higher ceiling than de Gea and allow the Spaniard to leave, in which case PSG would be one of the clubs interested.
