Some Leagues have already crowned their champions and others are still having their top teams battle it out to see which club will be lifting silverware for the season. With that in mind, a lot of teams are getting ready to spend big once the transfer window comes in. It is also evident that some players are beginning to be the trending names within the vast rumours that are starting to pile up due to the upcoming transfer window. As the current season suggest, there will be teams that might make a complete overhaul as result from an underperforming season. Now let’s take a look on some players that are making some noise as the transfer window gets near.
Bayern Star being sought after by English clubs
Bayern Munich attacking midfielder Mario Gotze has attracted big clubs after reports of him not being happy in his first year with the Bavarians. According to the Express, Premier League clubs such as Manchester United, Chelsea, and Arsenal are all considering an approach in signing Gotze this coming summer. In his first campaign with the German champions, Gotze has only featured in 27 league games and 20 starts. Gotze has stated in Express “Of course I am not happy (with first-team action). But I will continue to work hard and fight for a place in the first XI. I hope I am able to regain the trust of the manager and play regularly from the start.”
Real Madrid looking to overthrow Man United in Juventus target
It seems that Manchester United could perhaps be on the losing end on the chase on Paul Pogba. La Liga Giant Real Madrid has set an eye on the Frenchman and are set to make a bid in the summer according to reports in Italy. Corrieredello Sport reported that the Bianconeri might be tempted to sell Pogba if Madrid put up a whopping offer. Real Madrid’s assistant coach Zinedine Zidane had even personally addressed Pogba through a phone call asking him to come over at the Santiago Bernabeu.
Barcelona edging out Arsenal for Fiorentina Star
After two seasons, Barcelona still hasn’t addressed their weakness which is their defense. After the season, they could also lose their starting right-back Dani Alves this summer. Luckily, the Blaugrana has seemed to found a replacement with Fiorentina full-back Juan Cuadrado. Reports coming from Spain have stated that Cuadrado has now given the green light to pursue a move for him at the summer. Cuadrado is a versatile full-back that also can move up into the attack which is would help him fit right in at Barcelona.
Coentrao choosing between two top clubs
The Portuguese defender has decided that this will be his last season with Madrid but hasn’t decided on where to go to next. Luckily for Coentrao, he has two clubs to choose from which is Manchester United and AS Monaco. According to Fichajes.net it is expected that before the World Cup, Coentrao will already reveal his next destination between the two teams.
