As we approach what promises to be a busy transfer window, takes a look at players who could be on the move this summer, including those who have already completed deals.

 

Sadio Mane

Sadio Mane plans to make announcement on his Liverpool future after Champions League final

 

Mane has been linked with a move to Bayern Munich this summer and is in contract negotiations with the Merseyside club, but nothing has yet been finalised.

Speaking to Sky Sports News from Liverpool’s training ground, Mane said: “I will answer the question [about my future] after the Champions League. I’m not saying yes or no, I will answer after the Champions League.”

Raphinha

Raphinha is close to a summer move to Barcelona

 

Raphinha has two years left on his contract at Leeds and is not expected to sign a new deal, he would like to join Barcelona.

The Brazil international was pivotal in the Yorkshiremen sealing Premier League survival on the final day of the season, netting a penalty against Brentford, with Barca expected to formalise their interest.

West Ham United were one of a number of clubs who tried to sign Raphinha in the last transfer window.

 

Paul Pogba

Paul Pogba has held “positive talks” with Juventus over summer move

 

Paul Pogba has played his final game for Manchester United, with his contract set to expire in June. The midfielder’s representatives recently held ‘positive talks’ with Juventus over a free transfer this summer.

Pogba’s camp also reportedly remain in dialogue with Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain, having not received any contract offer from United since last summer.

 

Kylian Mbappe

The France international had been widely expected to leave the Ligue 1 champions for Real Madrid

 

Kylian Mbappe became the world’s highest-paid footballer after signing a three-year Paris Saint Germain deal worth almost £1m a week in May, having been close to joining Real Madrid on a free transfer. LaLiga have since filed a complaint over the deal it describes as ‘scandalous’.

Real had a £145m bid for Mbappe rejected last summer – after he requested to leave PSG – but the 23-year-old has since U-turned on that stance claiming he can “continue to grow” in France, the country where he “made his name”.

 

Erling Haaland

Erling Haaland has landed in Manchester to put finishing touches on £51m Man City move

 

Manchester City activated Erling Haaland’s release clause in mid-May, with the striker set to join on July 1 for a total of £85.5m including agents fees and other add-ons.

The move looks set to end Pep Guardiola’s pursuit of Tottenham’s Harry Kane, who previously looked destined to leave north London, while Dortmund have signed Red Bull Salzburg striker Karim Adeyemi as Haaland’s replacement.

 

Antonio Rudiger

Antonio Rudiger will depart Stamford Bridge this summer with Chelsea unable to persuade him to stay.

 

Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger has reached an agreement with Real Madrid to join the Spanish champions on a free transfer in the summer. Rudiger will officially join Real on July 1 on a four-year deal understood to be worth €400,000 (£342,000) per week.

The Germany international had decided to reject a new deal at Stamford Bridge in April, manager Thomas Tuchel revealed, in favour of moving to LaLiga.

More recently, it has been reported that Lewandowski has reached a “verbal agreement” with Barca, but no formal deal has been struck.
