Clubs in the Premier League may now begin making transfers.
Only four stars—Kylian Mbappe, Harry Kane, Victor Osimhen, and Declan Rice—could leave this summer, but it appears to be a thrilling one.
For 103 million euros, Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund have agreed to the transfer of England midfielder Jude Bellingham.
Legendary Argentine player Lionel Messi will sign with Inter Miami of the United States, while Real Madrid forward Karim Benzema has reached a contract agreement with Saudi Arabia’s Al-Ittihad.
Premier League teams spent a record £1.9 billion on summer transfers last year. Will that amount be matched before the window shuts on Friday, September 1 of this year?
These famous people could charge astronomical fees this year.
There are rumours going around about Kylian Mbappe.
Although the attacker claims he is content at Paris St-Germain, he informed the team last July that he will not be renewing his contract past 2024.
And rather than take the chance of losing him for free in a year, the French champions are willing to sell the 24-year-old this summer.
The Frenchman has long been a favourite of Real Madrid, but last year he turned down a transfer to the Bernabeu in order to stay at PSG.
The 2018 World Cup winner has been linked to Manchester United, Manchester City, and Bayern Munich as well. He has already amassed a sizable number of awards and records before turning 25.
Mbappe, who first came to PSG on loan from Monaco before making a 180 million euro transfer, is the team’s leading scorer with 212 goals in 260 games.
In 68 games for France, he has scored 38 goals, including a hat-trick in the World Cup final last year in Qatar, which France lost to Argentina on penalties.
With Harry Kane at the top of their list of potential Karim Benzema successors, Real Madrid has entered the fight for the Tottenham talisman.
The 29-year-old has also received significant attention from Manchester United, Chelsea, Bayern Munich, and Paris St. Germain over the past year.
Kane and the Spurs must make a choice. The record-setting goal scorer for England has one year left on his contract and, if he chooses not to sign a new one, will be free to go at the end of the following campaign.
There is no denying Kane’s talent; in 435 games for Spurs across all leagues, he has scored 280 goals. He needs 47 more goals to tie Alan Shearer’s 260-goal Premier League scoring record.
As he attempted to orchestrate a transfer to Manchester City two summers ago, Spurs managed to cling onto him.
However Kane’s future in north London is still up in the air because Spurs won’t be able to qualify for the Champions League next year and because he hasn’t yet won a significant award.
Declan Rice’s departure from West Ham this summer is “99%” certain, according to club chairman David Sullivan.
Despite interest from nearly all of England’s best clubs, the 24-year-old has refused all attempts to persuade him to sign a contract extension.
Rice led the Hammers to the European Conference League trophy when they defeated Fiorentina 2-1 in a thrilling final in June. His contract with the London club expires at the end of the upcoming season.
He went via West Ham’s development program and has earned 41 England caps, including in all five of his country’s games at the 2018 Winter World Cup.
According to sources, Rice is leaning toward joining Premier League runners-up Arsenal, but the Gunners might have to spend twice as much as the £72 million they did to buy record-breaking Nicolas Pepe in 2019.
Rice would not be sold for less than £150 million, according to Moyes, who thinks his star midfielder is worth “north” of that sum.
