Several big transfers are still likely to occur before this summer’s end. Some top players like Cristiano Ronaldo still want to join new clubs.
The article will look at some big transfers that are likely to occur before the summer transfer window is closed.
1. Frenkie de Jong to Manchester United
The Frenkie de Jong transfer saga is quite annoying to Manchester United fans. The discussion began immediately after the transfer window was opened.
Manchester United have done their best to ensure that de Jong joins the club. According to Fabrizio Romano, the Red Devils agreed on a deal worth 85 million euros with FC Barcelona for de Jong’s transfer.
FC Barcelona are ready to let de Jong leave this summer. Multiple sources claim that the Spanish club are pushing de Jong to leave as soon as possible.
However, the deal is not yet complete because de Jong has not agreed to personal terms with the Red Devils. The deal is even complicated because FC Barcelona owes de Jong 20 million euros. Frenkie and his agent are waiting for FC Barcelona to pay the midfielder so he can leave.
2. Cristiano Ronaldo leaving Manchester United
Cristiano Ronaldo desperately wants to leave Manchester United this summer. The Portuguese international is willing to join an elite European team before the window is closed.
Ronaldo wants to play Champions League football next season; that’s why he wants to leave Manchester United. The Red Devils will play in the Europa League next season after failing to qualify for the UEFA Champions League.
Ronaldo was previously linked with Bayern Munich, Chelsea and Paris Saint Germain. However, both clubs were not interested in signing the legendary striker.
According to the latest reports, Cristiano Ronaldo’s agent is working on the striker’s move to Atletico Madrid. Ronaldo is willing to take a 30% pay cut so he can join the Spanish club. Cristiano Ronaldo will join Diego Simeone’s side this summer if everything goes in order.
3. Presnel Kimpembe to Chelsea
Chelsea have been very busy this summer. After losing Christensen and Rudiger to FC Barcelona and Real Madrid, respectively, the Blues are working on signing new defenders.
Chelsea completed the signing of Kalidou Koulibaly last week and are currently following on Presnel Kimpembe and Jules Kounde.
Kimpembe reportedly told Paris Saint Germain that he wants to stay at the club. However, PSG are open to selling Kimpembe this summer. Chelsea have been pushing for the past few weeks and will likely sign the French centre-back before the window is closed.
Chelsea had submitted an offer of 40 million euros to PSG for Kimpembe’s transfer. However, the Parisians demand 42 million euros for Kimpembe.
Presnel Kimpembe might soon be landing in London if all goes well between Chelsea and Paris Saint Germain.
4. Youri Tielemans to Arsenal
Youri Tielemans wants to leave Leicester City this summer. The Belgian international has a contract with Leicester until next summer. However, he is pushing for a move-out before the window is closed.
According to Metro, Arsenal are leading the race to sign Tielemans. Manchester United are also interested in Tielemans, but the midfielder wants to join Arsenal.
Mikel Arteta reportedly wants to offload some players before signing Youri Tielemans.
5. Memphis Depay to Manchester United
Memphis Depay is not in Xavi Hernandez’s FC Barcelona plans for next season.
Manchester United are interested in signing Depay alongside de Jong from FC Barcelona this summer. Depay could potentially join Manchester United for the second time in his career.
The Red Devils have already been given the greenlight to sign Depay for 20 million euros. The Dutchman will fill the gap left behind by Cristiano Ronaldo next season.
