Five Football Transfers Expected This Summer

The summer transfer window is just around the corner and it is time to take a look at the most exciting pieces of business expected to take place in the next few months. 

Manchester City and Real Madrid have already laid the foundation for another dynamic transfer window. 

While Man City won the race for sought-after Borussia Dortmund star Erling Haaland, Madrid have captured the signature of Chelsea’s Antonio Rudiger to set the tone for the upcoming recruitment campaign. 

Here we take a look at the transfer news & rumours that will likely make headlines this summer. 

#5 Gareth Bale – Real Madrid to Premier League 

Gareth Bale’s troublesome spell at Real Madrid is drawing to a close as the Wales captain prepares to return to the Premier League following a nine-year stint at the Santiago Bernabeu. 

The left-footed winger joined Los Blancos for a world record transfer fee of £85.3 million from Tottenham Hotspur in 2013 and has enjoyed a trophy-laden career in Madrid. 

However, off-field antics, coupled with recurring injury problems, have seen Bale tumble down the pecking order under Carlo Ancelotti.

With his lucrative £600,000-a-week running out in June, the 32-year-old is expected to return to the Premier League, where Newcastle United, Manchester United and Spurs are interested in acquiring his services.  

#4 Raphinha – Leeds United to Barcelona 

According to TEAMtalk, Barcelona will step up their pursuit of Leeds United forward Raphinha next week after the player handed in a transfer request.

Xavi’s side were hopeful of landing the Brazil international in a cut-price deal amid the Whites’ dreaded relegation fight in the Premier League. 

But they will have to dig into their pockets to complete the transfer after Leeds secured top-flight status for another season. 

Raphinha has grown into one of the best-performing wingers in the Premier League since moving to Elland Road in 2020 and Barcelona see him as an immediate upgrade on Ferran Torres. 

Wolverhampton Wandereres loanee Adama Traore will return to Molineux Stadium in the summer following an uneventful six-month spell at Camp Nou, clearing the way for the Leeds star.

#3 Paulo Dybala – Juventus to Inter Milan

Paulo Dybala has decided to call time on his illustrious seven-year stint at Juventus and he will depart Turin as a free agent after refusing to commit to a new deal. 

One of the most coveted forwards in Serie A has draw a host of enquiries from the Premier League, with Arsenal and Tottenham reportedly keen to lure him away from Italy.

Unfortunately for the London clubs, Dybala’s future is seemingly tied to Serie A as Inter Milan are in advanced talks with the Argentine’s representatives over a summer switch to Giuseppe Meazza. 

The Sun has recently reported the 28-year-old is on the verge of putting pen to paper on a three-year contract at Inter worth around £115,000-a-week. 

#2 Paul Pogba – Manchester United to Juventus

It has been an underwhelming six years for Paul Pogba at Manchester United, and the time has come for the 2018 World Cup winner to move on.

The French playmaker re-joined the Red Devils in a blockbuster £89.3m deal from Juventus in 2016, carrying a reputation as one of Europe’s finest midfielders.

But things have not gone Pogba’s way at Old Trafford. The 29-year-old has often made headlines for all wrong reasons, with his bizarre haircuts and off-field activities overshadowing his on-field performances. 

Six years since leaving the Allianz Stadium, Pogba is set to reunite with Massimiliano Allegri, under whom he played the best football of his life. 

The record-time Italian champions have opened talks with the Frenchman’s entourages to negotiate his return to Turin on a free transfer. 

#1 Robert Lewandowski – Bayern Munich to La Liga

Robert Lewandowski’s future at Bayern Munich is up in the air, despite the Pole’s godlike status in Bavaria.

The veteran striker has been one of the deadliest goal-getters in Europe over the past decade, helping the Bavarians establish a long-term reign of supremacy in the Bundesliga.

Lewandowski’s agent Pini Zahavi has recently opened the door for teh 33-year-old’s departure from the Allianz Arena, admitting his outstanding eight-year spell at the club is nearing its end. 

Barcelona and Real Madrid have emerged as the likeliest landing spots for the ex-Borussia Dortmund talisman, as both sides have failed to sign their prime targets.

While Man City pipped Barca to Haaland, Paris Saint-Germain have locked in Kylian Mbappe with an unprecedented new contract, putting him out of Madrid’s reach. 

So the arch La Liga rivals may go head-to-head for the services of arguably the best striker on the planet.
