Frenkie de Jong to Bayern Munich

Bayern Munich are interested in signing Barcelona midfielder Frenkie de Jong this summer and the Catalan club are open to selling him for around €60-70m according to Relevo’s Matte Moretto. The Dutch international has been a mainstay in Barcelona’s midfield since arriving at the Nou Camp from Ajax in 2019 and was key in helping them to their first La Liga title in four years last season. The 26 year old would add a lot of attributes to Bayern’s midfield including superb ball retention, a fantastic passing range and an ability to work in small spaces.


Alphonso Davies to Real Madrid

According to Fabrizio Romano, Real Madrid want to sign Bayern Munich left back Alphonso Davies this summer and personal terms will not be an issue. The 23 year old has just a year left on his Bayern contract and if he doesn’t sign a new deal before June he will be available on the market as the German club do not want to lose him for free in 2025.

Davies has won an array of silverware during his time in Bavaria including a Champions League, five Bundesliga titles, a UEFA Super Cup, a FIFA Club World Cup, two DFB Pokal’s and three German Super Cup. And with Bayern through to this season’s Champions League semi finals, he still has the chance to win another Champions League trophy with the German side before potentially joining Madrid this summer. The Canada international arrived at Bayern from the MLS as a 17 year old left winger and has gone on to become one of the world’s best full backs since being converted into a left back.


Bernardo Silva to Barcelona

Several outlets have once again linked Bernardo Silva with a move to Barcelona this summer in a move that would see the midfielder reunite with former Manchester City teammates Joao Cancelo and Ilkay Gundogan.

The 29 year old has a £50m release clause inserted into his City contract which comes into effect this summer and Barcelona’s reported interest in the Portugal international dates back to 2022. In a recent interview with Jijantes FC, Bernardo’s Portugal teammate Joao Felix fuelled speculation regarding a potential move by saying: “I hope Barca will go and sign Bernardo Silva. He’s a top player and top guy. He’s always asking me about Barcelona as his family is here. I told Bernardo it’s all perfect and set for him to join us!”

Bernardo has won a Champions League, five Premier League titles, a FIFA Club World Cup, two FA Cup’s, four League Cup’s and two Community Shield’s during his seven year spell in Manchester.


Victor Osimhen to PSG

According to Corriere dello Sport, PSG are interested in signing Victor Osimhen and would be willing to trigger the Napoli striker’s €130m release clause this summer. With PSG star man Kylian Mbappe reportedly set to join Real Madrid this summer, Luis Enrique’s side will be looking to dip into the market to help replace the Frenchman’s goal output and Osimhen (26) could be the man they turn to. The Nigerian striker has scored 74 goals in 128 games for Napoli and was instrumental in the Italian side winning the Serie A title last season.

Jonathan David to Milan

Lille striker Jonathan David is one of Milan’s top targets this summer according to Fabrizio Romano, but the Rossoneri will have to fend off interest from Premier League clubs. With just a year remaining on the Lille striker’s contract, the 24 year old will reportedly be available for a cut price this summer which makes him a feasible option for Milan. The Canada international has scored 81 goals in 177 games for Lille and played a massive role in the French side clinching their first Ligue 1 title in 10 years during the Covid-hit 2020/21 season.
