Haaland, Mbappé, Messi, Depay, Wijnaldum, Koundé, Alaba … These are the ten most sought-after players in the next summer transfer market
The Norwegian striker is, to this day, the man who is most talked about in terms of transfers and his name comes to the fore again in every good game he plays, whether in the Bundesliga or in the Champions League. Haaland is one of the most voracious scorers on the international scene and despite Borussia Dortmund’s efforts to retain him, this summer he will be one of the proper names in Madrid, Barcelona, London, Manchester or Paris.
Precisely in the French capital the other one that fills and will fill covers is the French striker, who although he has a contract until 2022, his renewal is still up in the air and it will be necessary to see what decision he makes. Real Madrid and Liverpool are waiting for what he says to a PSG who, if he chooses to leave, will have to assess whether he wants to see him wear his shirt one more year and let him go for free, or get a good million for him this summer.
If Mbappé leaves, the number one objective of Paris Saint-Germain will be to join the Argentine with Neymar. Messi has not yet renewed with FC Barcelona and it does not seem that he will do so soon as he is waiting for a new president to arrive at the club. If Neymar awaits him in France, in Manchester he also has Pep Guardiola pending his every move.
And as if it were a domino effect, in Barcelona they try to convince Messi to stay while they look for reinforcements and the Dutch forward has been the favorite since Koeman arrived. Depay ends his contract in Lyon this summer, but FC Barcelona is not the only one interested, since siren songs also sound from Paris.
The same happens with the Liverpool midfielder, who does not plan to renew with the ‘reds’ and with the days counted at Anfield he awaits proposals. The Barça team is the best positioned after tempting him last summer, but PSG and Inter Milan also want to take him at zero cost.
The other midfielder who will attract many eyes in the next summer market will be Olympique de Lyon, who sounds like reinforcement in Paris, Turin and Madrid, where Zidane has opened the doors wide for him, as a good compatriot, to whom he seems to have supplanted Pogba as a new fad.
In Madrid they are already waiting for the “yes, I want” from the versatile Austrian footballer. Alaba has already confirmed that he will not continue in Munich next season, but left his destiny up in the air by ensuring that there are several clubs with interesting proposals behind him. The Whites seem to be the first in the race, but PSG intend to interfere until the end.
Sevilla is confident of retaining one of its best players of the season to take advantage of the inflation forecast for 2022 after the coronavirus and earn more for its sale, but it will be difficult. After Bayern made the signing of Upamecano official, his compatriot is the great future attraction for Europe’s defenses and both Real Madrid and Chelsea have made it clear that they are interested.
In Italy there are also future defenders looking to make a leap and the most sought-after is Casalmaggiore. Bastoni stood out last season as a center-back with plenty of wickers to triumph in the elite thanks to his great ball output and his long displacement. Now he has gone into rebellion, he does not plan to renew with Inter Milan and at the age of 21 his name resonates in Manchester, London, Munich, Paris and Madrid.
And to Madrid, but to Atlético, he could arrive to adapt to perfection in the new scheme of Simeone, the Atalanta winger. The German does not end his contract far from it, but considering how his position in Europe and his offensive potential are becoming fashionable, he has seven goals in Serie A this season, it would not be strange for bigger clubs to knock on his door.
