With the Euros just behind us, and the Premier League only a few weeks away, Football fans everywhere have turned their attention to the transfer market. Usually, during International Tournaments, Summer transfers are held off, with players saying they are focused on the tournament. So after the Euros ended, a swarm of transfer gossip emerged, and we are here to look at what we consider to be the five most exciting transfers which could happen to the Premier League.
Harry Kane – Tottenham To Man City
England’s Golden boy has just won the Premier League Golden Boot for the 3rd time now. It’s criminal that Englands best striker has yet to win any major trophy and something that will be weighing heavily on Harry Kane’s mind as he approaches his late twenties. If Harry Kane were to go to Man City, then the best striker would be playing for the best club, and we’d expect a spell of dominance for Man City, which could last 2 or 3 years. I’m definitely putting a bet on Man City winning the league, and if you are interesting as well, check out Betpack.
Raphael Varane – Real Madrid to Man Utd
Ever since Ferdinand and Vidic left Man Utd, they’ve never had a world-class defence. While they normally have 1 or 2 class players, they’ve never had the solid back four you need to win the league. Enter Varane from Real Madrid, who’d be a partner worthy of England International and the most expensive defender in the world, Harry Maguire.
Romelu Lukaku – Inter Milan to Chelsea
Lukaku is a player that fans and clubs can’t seem to make their mind up about. He was originally a Chelsea player in 2011 before being sold to Everton in 2014 after not impressing Roman Abromovic. He then became popular again at Everton, earning him a move to Man Utd, where he fell out of favour yet again and was sold to Inter Milan. At Inter Milan, he found the most success and actually won the Serie A title. But due to Inter’s financial woes, they could be forced to sell him again, and it seems like Chelsea are interested. Lukaku keeps getting better with age, and now he has the confidence of winning the League in Italy, along with Chelsea’s confidence at winning the Champions League. This could be a match made in heaven.
Jack Grealish – Aston Villa To Man City
Before the Euros, Jack Grealish was somewhat of an unknown entity, not known by causal England fans. But now, due to his fancy hairstyle, low socks and playmaking abilities, every man, woman and child knows his name. But Pep has had his eye on Jack for quite some time now, and his performances at the Euros would have only increased his interest in the lad. Man City is a team much better suited to his attacking flair, and so it will be a real treat to see Jack Grealish fulfil his attacking potential that he perhaps wasn’t able to at Aston Villa or England.
Erling Braut Haaland – Dormund To Man Utd
Haaland has been on the radar of many European Football fans for a few years now, despite only being 21. He helped win the Austrian league getting 17 goals in 16 appearances with Red Bull Salzburg, and made the step up to the German league seamlessly, scoring 40 goals in 43 games for Dortmund. This guy is ready to go and needs no time getting used to a new league. So if Haaland does sign for Man Utd, we can expect great things from him straight away, and he could even challenge Harry Kane for the Golden boot next year.
