We might not be having a lot of football to watch for another few weeks, but while Covid-19 has halted the beautiful game momentarily, transfer rumours have kept us entertained – as we hope for a brighter future.
Here are the most outrageous transfer rumours that football fans will revel in, if there are true:
#1 Sane to Bayern Munich
Manchester City are set to be offered David Alaba as a makeweight for Leroy Sane by Bayern Munich this summer.
#2 Aubameyang to Leave Arsenal
Manchester City could be an option for the Aresnal star if they were looking to replace Sergio Aguero. Meanwhile, he is a similar age to Thierry Henry when he went to Barcelona to play with Lionel Messi and Xavi, before winning titles and Champions Leagues. We could see him moving to the Nou Camp, but Real Madrid could also be an option too.
#3 Pogba back to Juventus
Italian giants Juventus are prepared to offer Miralem Pjanic or Paulo Dybala in an attempt to pry Paul Pogba away from Manchester United. It’s claimed that the Old Lady will offer £55m plus Dybala or Pjanic as part of the deal.
#4 van de Beek to Manchester United
The Red Devils want to sign Ajax and Netherlands playmaker Donny van de Beek despite Real Madrid’s keen interest in the player, who is widely expected to leave Ajax in the summer. United have heavily scouted the 22-year-old, but are also targeting Jack Grealish and James Maddison.
#5 Sabitzer on Tottenham’s Radar
Tottenham are reported to have stepped up their pursuit of the RB Leipzig midfielder, Marcel Sabitzer, who would cost around £45m.
#6 Rodriguez could move to Manchester City
Manchester City are preparing for life without David Silva by lining up a move to sign Real Madrid playmaker James Rodriguez.
#7 Liverpool Following Mbappe
Liverpool have been tentatively linked with the Paris Saint-Germain forward, but Real Madrid are planning to launch a big-money move to sign Kylian Mbappe next summer, in a blow to Red’s chances of signing the megastar.
Arsenal have put Real Betis midfielder Nabil Fekir back on their radar as a potential replacement for Dani Ceballos, who is set to return to Real Madrid at the end of his loan with Fekir targeted as another option.
#9 Bayern Looking at ter Stegen
Bayern Munich are planning to move for Barcelona goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen, as his contract talks with Barcelona stalled in recent weeks – just as Bayern have shelved talks with Manuel Neuer over a new deal. Ter Stegen is reportedly valued at £80m.
#10 Chelsea Making Moves For Telles
Chelsea have reportedly made initial contact with Porto over a £36m move for Brazil left-back, Alex Telles, but Barcelona’s interest could complicate any move for player at the moment.
