Have we ever seen a transfer window like the one this summer promises?
The money seems destined to be thrown around the whole store, and the panorama of the football world as we know it may soon change.
Here are six items for you to keep an eye on.
Real Madrid offers an Ajax discount on Martin Odegaard
Martin Odegaard seemed to fall out of the spotlight almost as fast as he entered. The Real Madrid starlet spent last season rebuilding his reputation on loan with Vitesse, and it seems to have worked.
De Telegraaf claims that Ajax intends to sign it definitively, but the semi-finalists of the Champions League have refused to meet their 20 million euros asking for the price. Fortunately, the Los Blancos offered them the chance to negotiate that price, and Ajax officials are ready to take them into consideration.
Odegaard impressed in the 4-2 defeat against Ajax, and all signs indicate he could end up at Johan Cruijff ArenA in the near future.
AC Milan Eye € 50m Deal for Malcolm while the sports director meets the agent
Milan is looking for some new attack stars to help bring the Rossoneri back to their former glory. Characters of the caliber of Richarlison and Gerard Deulofeu have been linked, but Milan wants only one man: Malcom.
Il Calciomercato states that the Serie A team is desperate to lure it away from Barcelona, but may have problems meeting the requested 50 million euros. This is supported by the Gazzetta dello Sport, which adds that the director of football Leonardo has met Malcolm representatives to find out if an agreement can be reached.
A loan with the right to purchase seems to be a probable solution, and now they have to work to convince Malcolm that a move to Milan would be right for him.
Man City Join Man Utd in the race for Bruno Fernandes, with a value of 87 million pounds
CP Sporting star Bruno Fernandes is a wanted man. The midfielder has been linked to Manchester United as part of the massive revision of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's team, however, their path to signing it has become much more difficult.
According to The Sun, rival citizens of Manchester City entered the fray, and intensified their search for the 24-year-old. Sports director Hugo Viana flew to Manchester to meet the city's Txiki Begiristain to discuss the possibility of negotiating a discount on his £ 87 million release clause.
Fernandes wants the move in the Premier League, but United may have to act soon if they want to win it.
Naples ready to sell Lorenzo Insigne as giants of the Premier League are preparing for the bidding war
The transfer saga that surrounds Lorenzo Insigne has continued until most of us can remember. However, it seems that we could finally approach the end, as it is said that the man of Naples has become frustrated by life in Sao Paulo.
Il Corriere dello Sport says that Insigne's relations with both Carlo Ancelotti and the supporters have completely broken down following the elimination of Napoli in the Europa League at the hands of the Arsenal. The Parthenopeans are ready to separate from him and there are plenty of suitors.
Chelsea Move Hinging by Philippe Coutinho on Transfer Over by Decision Over Blues
Philippe Coutinho's time in Barcelona seems to be nearing its end and a return to the Premier League seems almost inevitable. Chelsea have been heavily tied to the Brazilian as a replacement for Eden Hazard if he joins Real Madrid, but their ban on transfer could make their plans fail.
The Blues are so determined to sign Coutinho that, according to Sport, the only thing that will stop Coutinho for Chelsea next season is their imminent ban on transfers. If they fail to freeze their ban, they will almost certainly sign the Brazilian, given that Hazard seems close to joining Los Blancos.
If FIFA refuses to delay the punishment, Coutinho could be forced to stay at the Camp Nou, although his relationship with the fans seems to collapse with each passing day.
PSG Monitor Raphael Varane Situation & Consider Summer Bid
The future of Raphael Varane could be one of the main points of discussion of the summer. Rumors have emerged suggesting that he is ready to leave Real Madrid in search of a new challenge, and would certainly have many options to choose from.
One of which is PSG which, according to the reliable fan page Paris United, They are closely monitoring his situation, in the event that Los Blancos accepts defeat in their attempts to detain him.
The 25-year-old has already tasted the glory of the Liga and the Champions League, and has even added the World Cup to his trophy last summer. Could it be time to test yourself elsewhere?
