The transfer window opens on June 9 for England and France (find out when the rest of Europe starts here) and the clubs have planned their business amid the financial uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The writers at ESPN bring you everything you need to know about the hopes of the top teams and go into the potential deals. Who will come in? Who is going to leave?
Jump to: Man City | Man United | Leicester | Chelsea | Tottenham | Arsenal | Barcelona | Atletico Madrid | Real Madrid | Bavaria | Dortmund | Juventus | Inter Milan | PSG
Budget: Around £ 50m plus money raised from all the players who can get them ahead.
What does the team need? Georginio Wijnaldum’s imminent free agent departure has increased the need for young reinforcements in midfield, where Liverpool have a number of key players in their thirties. Liverpool have already strengthened their backs by signing Ibrahima Konate on a £ 36m deal from RB Leipzig and they could try to sign a striker if Mohamed Salah presses for a move.
Who are the main goals? Konate’s signing has resulted in Liverpool achieving one of their key goals but Borussia Mönchengladbach’s Florian Neuhaus is likely to miss it. The midfielder is expected to withhold a £ 35m move this summer and move to Bayern Munich instead in 2022. Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho will be a target if a senior striker leaves Anfield but Manchester United are leading the chase for the English winger.
Who could go Wijnaldum is expected to leave when his contract expires later this month and Liverpool could sack Naby Keita to raise funds for reinforcements. Konate’s signing has left Liverpool with a surplus of center-backs so they have heard offers for Joel Matip, Nat Phillips and Ben Davies who have not played for the first team since arriving from Preston North End in January. Liverpool are not expected to convert Ozan Kabak’s loan from Schalke into a permanent deal while goalkeeper Adrian is likely to leave as a free agent. Youngsters Ben Woodburn and Harry Wilson could leave while fringe players Xherdan Shaqiri and Divock Origi are available.
Are new contracts coming? Fabinho, Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Salah all have two-year contracts left, so Liverpool will have to decide on all four this summer. – Mark Ogden
While Shaka Hislop fully respects Sergio Ramos, he’s a little suspicious of the Spaniard’s move to Manchester City.
Budget: High but the club will consider financial fair play and the financial impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.
What does the team need? A striker is high on the list of priorities after the Premier League title winner played without a recognized # 9 for much of the season. There is also interest in an attacking midfielder and possibly a left-back.
Who are the main goals? The situation surrounding Tottenham striker Harry Kane is being watched closely, with the England international appearing determined to leave the club. Pep Guardiola is an admirer of his scoring and connection skills, but City doesn’t tend to spend a lot on a player and Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is a very tough negotiator who isn’t afraid to leave things up to the last minute. City still has to pay more than £ 70m for one player (Kevin De Bruyne) and Kane’s value to Tottenham far exceeds that. Aston Villa midfielder Jack Grealish is also an option, but talks with Aston Villa would be easy after the 25-year-old signed a new long-term deal last summer. Barcelona’s Lionel Messi will be under surveillance if he leaves Camp Nou, while sources told ESPN that City Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos could offer a two-year deal.
Who could go Striker Sergio Agüero and defender Eric Garcia have made a free transfer to Barcelona, while City would listen to offers to sign left-back Benjamin Mendy if they were seriously interested.
Are new contracts coming? Seasoned midfielder Fernandinho will sign a new contract and stay for another year. After securing De Bruyne’s future, City has its sights set on new deals for Raheem Sterling and John Stones. Stones has had an impressive season on the defensive after being close to leaving a year ago and will enter the final year of his contract this summer. Sterling has a contract until 2023 but there is interest in Real Madrid’s English winger. –Rob Dawson
Shaka Hislop explores what it would be like for Man United and Atletico Madrid to swap David De Gea for Jan Oblak.
Budget: The aim is to have a net spend between £ 100m and £ 150m.
What does the team need? The squad needs work if United is to close the gap with Manchester City or even stay above Liverpool and Chelsea, both of which are likely to see major improvements next season. United are looking for strikers, wingers, defensive midfielders, center-backs and right-backs, but manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is unlikely to strengthen every position in one summer. The club are working on a plan to hire three players who can join the first team immediately, with roughly the same number of departures to make room in the squad.
Who are the main goals? Sancho is one of the top targets again and there is a belief that a deal is more achievable this summer. Dortmund has lowered its claims to around 100 million euros and a large part of the preparatory work with Sancho’s representatives was done 12 months ago. Kane would be welcomed with open arms at Old Trafford but there are concerns that the financial outlay required to sign him from Tottenham could be prohibitive. As a central defender, Villarreal defender Pau Torres convinces with his age, his ability to play on the left side and a reasonable release clause of around 60 million euros in his contract. Substitute goalkeeper Tom Heaton is also said to come from Aston Villa.
Who could go Andreas Pereira and Diogo Dalot are on loan for the season and Solskjaer will have to decide whether to return to the first team squad for next season. Jesse Lingard’s situation is a little more complicated because he was fantastic at West Ham and has only one year left at Old Trafford. The goalkeeping situation is interesting because neither David de Gea nor Dean Henderson will want to be second choice next season so they could leave.
Are new contracts coming? United could offer Lingard a new deal, but it is questionable whether they would accept it without assurances about the number of games he would play. Paul Pogba will enter the final year of his contract this summer and Solskjaer hasn’t given up hope of a new deal with the midfielder amid interest from Juventus and Real Madrid. Juan Mata is out of contract this summer and will have more talks about his future after the season ends.
Budget: Around £ 40m plus money raised from all the players who can get them ahead.
What does the team need? Manager Brendan Rodgers would like a new striker to compete with Jamie Vardy and Kelechi Iheanacho, a goalscorer and full-back. After missing Champions League qualifications twice in recent seasons, Rodgers is determined to add depth and quality to his roster this summer.
Who are the main goals? Leicester are in talks with Lille on a £ 22m deal for French U21 midfielder Boubakary Soumare that could be finalized in the coming days. There is also an interest in Southampton’s left-back Ryan Bertrand, who will be available as a free agent after his contract expires in late June.
Who could go Club captain Wes Morgan has announced his resignation before his contract expires, while left-back Christian Fuchs, another member of the 2015-16 title-winning squad, will retire as a free agent. Leicester is also gearing up for Champions League clubs’ interest in James Maddison, Wesley Fofana and FA Cup final scorer Youri Tielemans. Fringe players Matty James and Dennis Praet are also likely to leave.
Are new contracts coming? Due to the expected interest in several of their key players, Leicester is aiming to hand them over new contracts this summer. Midfielder Tielemans and central defender Caglar Soyuncu, whose contracts expire in 2023, have priority. The club are also looking to extend the tenure of center-back Fofana and winger Harvey Barnes. – Mark Ogden
Steve Nicol and Don Hutchison debate Harry Kane’s future in the Premier League if he leaves Tottenham.
Budget: Around £ 100m plus money raised from all the players who can get them ahead.
What does the team need? A world-class center-forward is high on Chelsea’s priority list, closely followed by a world-class center-back. The lack of goals from Timo Werner since his £ 47.7million arrival from RB Leipzig last year has led the club to still look for a modern take on Didier Drogba or Diego Costa in order to have regular physical presence and To score goals. In defense, a younger version of Thiago Silva would be the idea to sign
Who are the main goals? Chelsea will switch for Kane or Dortmund striker Erling Haaland if they are encouraged by either player to move to Stamford Bridge. Tottenham’s bitter rivalry with Chelsea could keep Kane from roaming across London while Haaland has hinted at spending another year with Dortmund. Romelu Lukaku is a third option and Chelsea are watching his situation at Inter Milan.
Who could go Olivier Giroud, Silva and Willy Caballero are all signed this summer but the club have an option for another year with Silva that could be triggered this month. Marcos Alonso, Emerson and Tammy Abraham could leave while funds are being raised by loaning out this season’s borrowers, including Ross Barkley, Davide Zappacosta, Matt Miazga and Tiemoue Bakayoko. Goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga is available but is more likely to be loaned out.
Are new contracts coming? The big contract with Chelsea this summer will apply to coach Thomas Tuchel, who only signed an 18-month contract when he took office in January. Chelsea will also extend Silva for 12 months, while Andreas Christensen, Antonio Rüdiger and Cesar Azpilicueta are likely to extend their contracts for a year. N’Golo Kante is also up for a new deal to replace his contract that expires in 2023. – Mark Ogden
Gab and Juls discuss whether Antonio Conte would be suitable for Tottenham if he joins as a coach.
Budget: Almost entirely dependent on Kane leaving, but they’ll be on a reduced budget after just finishing in the Europa Conference League.
What does the team need this summer? Tottenham’s entire summer revolves around Kane’s future. Levy wants £ 150m from each club to sign the 27-year-old and that money would be reinvested in a squad that needs fresh impetus whether or not they missed out on Champions League football. Spurs will need at least one center-back, new right-back, midfielder and substitute striker for Kane, provided he stays.
Who are the main goals? Spurs wants to appoint a new manager before pursuing specific goals. Obviously, the identity of the new boss will affect who Tottenham is chasing after. Both Chelsea and Manchester City are ready to offer players on top of cash to convince Levy to do business with Kane, with Sterling and Abraham being among the names mentioned. Spurs looked to Inter Milan defender Milan Skriniar in January when Jose Mourinho was in charge but were put off by his € 60m transfer fee.
Who could go Tottenham have tried in previous windows to sack right-back Serge Aurier and this may finally be the time as he only has one year left on his contract. Midfielder Tanguy Ndombele has had a difficult time in England while Dele Alli has had a bad season on the fringes of the first team. You will be among a number of players who want to know the identity of the new coach – and whether Kane is staying – before they reveal their feelings. Gareth Bale has returned to Real Madrid after his loan deal and it is currently unclear if he will return to Spurs next season. Defender Juan Foyth could move to Villarreal on a permanent basis after being on loan there last year.
Are new contracts coming? Son Heung-Min has been in talks with the South Korean international for some time, who is widely expected to sign a new deal at the start of the campaign. That’s still the case, but it remains to be seen whether a disappointing end to the season and news of Kane’s desire to leave could compound the situation. Goalkeeper Hugo Lloris has another year of contract and although talks are ongoing, he’s not close to agreeing to an extension yet. – James Olley

Budget: No European football for the first time in 25 years means less money, but it also depends on the departure of players and the level of investment by the owners KSE.
What does the team need this summer? A central defender, at least one central midfielder, a center forward depending on the departure, a left-back substitute for Kieran Tierney and a substitute goalkeeper. There are a lot of moving parts, however, as a lot depends on which players Arsenal can switch to, filling in gaps in the roster.
Who are the main goals? The Gunners are keen to get Martin Odegaard back on either on loan or on a permanent basis, but it remains to be seen whether Real Madrid will approve a deal based on the deal they plan to do this summer under new boss Carlo Ancelotti. Ajax goalkeeper Andre Onana is closely associated with the club despite his 12 month suspension for a doping violation, while Swansea’s Freddie Woodman is a more likely candidate than Brentford’s David Raya based on the result of the championship playoff final. They also looked at left-back options, including Bertrand from Southampton and Patrick van Aanholt from Crystal Palace. Norwich midfielder Emi Buendia and Brighton’s Yves Bissouma have been scouted, while Lyons Moussa Dembele is one of the possible strikers.
Who could go Sources told ESPN that Hector Bellerin has an agreement with manager Mikel Arteta about a possible summer exit. The club will also listen to offers for Matteo Guendouzi, Sead Kolasinac, Eddie Nketiah and Ainsley Maitland-Niles, while there is uncertainty around Alexandre Lacazette and Granit Xhaka. There are concerns that goalkeeper Bernd Leno might not agree to a contract extension but the club are unlikely to approve an exit. Willian has been linked with a move to MLS despite only joining from Chelsea last summer, but winger Reiss Nelson and midfielder Joe Willock (who was on loan at Newcastle this season) could leave. David Luiz tops the list of players who leave for free at the end of their contracts
Are new contracts coming? The Gunners are in talks to renew Emile Smith Rowe’s contract after a good breakthrough season. The club also plans to speak to Lacazette to determine the next steps, as his contract is still one year away. Calum Chambers could also be offered a new deal.
Sid Lowe explores Lionel Messi’s future at Barcelona following Sergio Agüero’s comments at his Barcelona presentation on Monday.
Budget: Very little. Barcelona’s financial troubles are well documented, but new president Joan Laporta is looking for sources of income to fund signings. A € 9 million buyback clause has been used for Emerson, but other deals are likely to be free.
What does the team need? Barca’s weaknesses were exposed when they lost the title to Atletico Madrid in the final weeks of the season. However, Laporta wasted little time making improvements. They needed reinforcements in defense, competition for Jordi Alba as a left-back, more opportunities in midfield – Frenkie de Jong, Sergio Busquets and Pedri were outplayed last season – and a striker to replace the long-dead Luis Suárez.
Who are the main goals? Regardless of the goals, Barca have already done a sizable chunk of their summer business. Center-back Garcia and striker Agüero both signed with Manchester City after their contracts expired. Barca also brought back Real Betis full-back Emerson for € 9m. Talks on signing Liverpool midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum and Lyons striker Memphis Depay, who were also out of contract this summer, are at an advanced stage.
Who could go While Laporta made signings quickly, it won’t be that easy to switch players. Barca have a long list of players they would like to give up, but their high salaries are difficult for other clubs to match. Neto, Samuel Umtiti, Junior Firpo, Miralem Pjanic, Philippe Coutinho and Martin Braithwaite are all considered expendable. There is also a second group of players who are not ousted, but could leave if interested and given a decent offer. Sergi Roberto, Antoine Griezmann, and Ousmane Dembele are among the names on this list.
Are new contracts coming? There’s a pretty big one that needs sorting. Messi’s contract expires on June 30, but Laporta has been optimistic that he will write new terms. Elsewhere, Dembele and Roberto both have a year to end their contracts. If they don’t sign an extension, the club will listen to offers for them this summer. New deals for Ansu Fati and Pedri are less urgent. The two 18-year-olds are without a contract in 2022, although there is an option for additional years. – Sam Marsden and Moises Llorens
Budget: Limited. Cash flow was a concern for La Liga winners Atletico and their summer budget will depend on who goes.
What does the team need? The squad is well balanced but they could add a midfielder, another full-back (neither Kieran Trippier nor Renan Lodi have a natural substitute) and a striker so that coach Diego Simeone can spare 34-year-old Suarez who has confirmed that he would stay another year.
Who are the main goals? Concrete goals are still pending, although names like Paulo Dybala from Juventus, Fabian Ruiz from Naples and Rodrigo de Paul from Udinese have been mentioned in the media in recent weeks.
Who could go Atleti have a € 35million option to keep Lyon’s Moussa Dembele but that’s unlikely as he was barely visible during a disappointing six month loan period. Lucas Torreira’s loan from Arsenal also expires this summer and is unlikely to continue. The club have had talks about his future with midfielder Saul Niguez, frustrated by the 26-year-old’s stalled development and reduced playing time, but there are doubts that a sufficiently attractive offer will come in. Midfielder Hector Herrera and winger Vitolo could also leave. Center-back Jose Maria Gimenez, who has been of interest in the Premier League in the past, has announced that he would like to stay. Goalkeeper Jan Oblak may be open to a move but Atletico would only be tempted by an offer close to their € 120m release clause.
Are new contracts coming? Sources have told ESPN that talks with coach Simeone have already started to extend his contract until 2024. The club also want marauding midfielder Marcos Llorente, who excelled last season, to sign an improved contract. – Alex Kirkland and Rodri Faez
Shaka Hislop assesses Eden Hazard’s status at Real Madrid as the summer transfer window approaches.
Budget: Similar to Atletico, it is dictated by the players who can advance them.
What does the team need? Scoring a goal forward to relieve Karim Benzema is a must (Madrid’s second top scorer last season was defensive midfielder Casemiro). Otherwise, there is room for a midfielder and a center-back – depending on Ramos and Raphael Varane’s future and Ancelotti’s plans for new signing David Alaba – and a right-back given Dani Carvajal’s injury problems.
Who are the main goals? Kylian Mbappe, if he can be praised away by Paris Saint-Germain, and Haaland, who may be out of reach in Dortmund by next summer. If Madrid can’t land either, they have to consider the alternatives available in the market as Luka Jovic and Mariano Diaz won’t make it.
Who could go Ramos doesn’t look to sign a new contract while Varane hasn’t made a commitment about his future and if he refuses to renew a contract that expires next summer he will leave. There are big question marks with Isco and Marcelo, unless Ancelotti wants to rehabilitate one of them. There is a greater chance that Martin Odegaard will stay with Zidane, but he may have to leave to raise money. Alvaro Odriozola was due to leave, as was Dani Ceballos. A solution also needs to be found for the Bale problem as he still has a year to run his expensive contract after returning from his loan at Tottenham.
Are new contracts coming? The 35 year old Luka Modric has already extended for another year and Lucas Vazquez for three more. Benzema and Nacho both still have a one-year contract term and have to be extended. – Alex Kirkland and Rodri Faez
Budget: Depending on who they advance.
What does the team need in summer? After Bayern spent € 25m on signing coach Julian Nagelsmann and € 42.5m on defender Dayot Upamecano, both from RB Leipzig, they grew up before the window was opened. Against this background, the new CEO Oliver Kahn has warned of a summer full of spending. Alaba, Jerome Boateng and Javi Martinez will be free transfer and since some fringe players have not really broken through, Bayern have to improve their depth and also secure some of their stars with new contracts.
Who are the main goals? It depends on who goes, but ideally Bayern want more cover on the right full-back, center-back, central midfield and on the wing. They were closely linked to Liverpool midfielder Gini Wijnaldum but he appears to be Barcelona while Gladbach’s Florian Neuhaus was also a target but could be too expensive at € 40m. Bayern were also interested in Julian Draxler before extending his contract with PSG. So expect them to be in the credit market – something they have done with flying colors in the past when they signed Ivan Perisic from Inter Milan and Douglas Costa from Juventus. Reading’s 23-year-old left-back Omar Richards is also on a free transfer.
Who could go Costa’s loan agreement is concluded and he joins Gremiowhile Boateng, Alaba and Martinez are on their way with expiring contracts. Players like Bouna Sarr, Corentin Tolisso, Michael Cuisance and Joshua Zirkzee could also leave, while Bayern may try to concede center-back Niklas Sule. Winger Kingsley Coman’s future is also uncertain after bringing on Pini Zahavi as his new agent in May to help him with his Premier League options.
Are new contracts coming? That must be a priority for Bayern. Leon Goretzka is one of their key players while Tolisso and Sule’s contracts also expire in 2022 and Bayern have to get them on new contracts to prevent them from going for free next summer. There are also some well-known stars for deals through 2023, including: Coman, Serge Gnabry, Joshua Kimmich, Robert Lewandowski, Thomas Müller and Manuel Neuer. – Tom Hamilton.
Jan Aage Fjotoft prepares the stage for a large summer transfer window with Borussia Dortmund star Erling Haaland.
Budget: Very little at the moment. BVB posted losses of € 44million after the 2019-20 season, and sources told ESPN that that number could climb to € 75million this season if they don’t receive a heavy fee for one of their stars.
What does the team need in summer? New manager Marco Rose will have his own ideas about what the team needs, but standout sporting director Michael Zorc likely already has goals. However, all approaches largely depend on who is leaving. Dortmund are masters at signing and developing brilliant young players – Jadon Sancho and Jude Bellingham are case in point – but they need a new goalkeeper to replace Roman Burki. If Sancho leaves, Dortmund will look for reinforcements on the wing and at the same time watch the market for a new center-back and right-back.
Who are the main goals? They have already signed 17-year-old defender Soumaila Coulibaly on a free transfer from PSG but their priority is a goalkeeper. Borussia Dortmund has been linked to RB Leipzig’s Peter Gulacsi, but sources said they will sign Stuttgart’s Gregor Kobel for € 15m. The club has also been linked to a move from young Aston Villa midfielder Carney Chukwuemeka, Mainz defender Jeremiah St. Juste, Wolfburg center-back Maxence Lacroix and Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi.
Who could go Sancho could be the superstar exit this summer, with Dortmund wanting a € 100m transfer fee and Manchester United being the front runner, sources told ESPN. Dortmund are stubborn striker Erling Haaland will stay and would only consider letting him go for a fee of around 180 million euros, sources told ESPN. Legendary Lukasz Piszczek has retired and while left-back Marcel Schmelzer’s contract expires in June he is continuing his recovery from his injury and could stay. Danish midfielder Thomas Delaney has also been linked to a move, with Southampton interested. Sources told ESPN that Dortmund was open to offers for Nico Schulz, Mahmoud Dahoud and Julian Brandt in January.
Are new contracts coming? BVB has a number of professionals whose contracts will expire next summer 2022: Dahoud, Delaney, Mats Hummels and Axel Witsel. – Tom Hamilton.
Mark Ogden is investigating the possibility of Cristiano Ronaldo’s return to Old Trafford.
Budget: Low but that could change if Cristiano Ronaldo moves on.
What does the team need? A midfield. The current center is a shell of the new coach Massimiliano Allegri, who was inherited by Antonio Conte in his first term in 2014. Legendary goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon will definitely go as a replacement or substitute for No. 1 Wojciech Szczesny.
Who are your main goals? Pogba remains an ambitious target, but there is no doubt that Allegri would love to have him back with him. A more realistic reunion would be with Pjanic, who has fallen out of favor at Barcelona. Italian international Manuel Locatelli would also be a big win if he leaves Sassuolo, while Milan goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma is available on a free transfer.
Who could go Es bleibt abzuwarten, ob Juve angesichts seines monströsen Gehalts ein Angebot für Ronaldo annehmen würde, aber er wird diesen Sommer mit einem Wechsel in Verbindung gebracht. Es ist das Ende einer Ära, da Buffon im Alter von 43 Jahren verlässt, während die Zukunft von Mittelfeldspieler Aaron Ramsey im Verein alles andere als sicher ist.
Irgendwelche neuen Verträge? Paulo Dybala geht in das letzte Jahr seines Vertrags, aber Allegri möchte ein Team rund um den argentinischen Nationalspieler aufbauen. Ronaldo, dessen kurzfristige Zukunft noch unklar ist, befindet sich ebenfalls in den letzten 12 Monaten seines Mega-Deals. — Andrew Cesare Richardson
Shaka Hislop untersucht, warum alle Anzeichen darauf hindeuten, dass Antonio Conte und Romelu Lukaku in der nächsten Saison wieder zusammenspielen.
Budget: Die finanziellen Probleme der Eigentümer The Suning Group – Schulden von mehr als 500 Millionen Euro aufgrund des Coronavirus und ehrgeiziger Ausgaben – bedeuten, dass der Verein Spieler wechseln muss, um die Gewinnschwelle zu erreichen.
Was braucht die Mannschaft? Der Verein muss sich auf eine solide finanzielle Basis stellen, nachdem Manager Conte nach seinem Titelgewinn in der Serie A innerhalb von drei Wochen abgereist ist, da er angeblich nicht an einem verkleinerten Projekt arbeiten wollte. Lazios Simone Inzaghi ist angekommen, aber er wird nicht viel Hilfe haben.
Wer sind ihre wichtigsten Ziele? Das Hauptziel ist einfach, einige ihrer Schlüsselspieler im Verein zu halten. Ihr dringender Bedarf, Gelder zu beschaffen, stellte die Zukunft von Romelu Lukaku, Lautaro Martinez und Skriniar in Frage.
Wer könnte gehen? Jemand. Rechtsverteidiger Achraf Hakimi, der letzten Sommer für 40 Millionen Euro von Real Madrid unterschrieben hat, ist auf dem Weg nach draußen, wobei PSG das wahrscheinlichste Ziel ist. Es wird erwartet, dass sein Abgang der einzige der hochkarätigen Spieler ist, aber er wird Inter mit einer großen Lücke auf der rechten Seite hinterlassen. Inter könnte es auch gebrauchen, einige seiner älteren Spieler wie Arturo Vidal und Aleksandar Kolarov von der Lohnrechnung zu streichen.
Irgendwelche neuen Verträge? Kurzfristig unwahrscheinlich, aber zu denjenigen, die 2022 auslaufen, gehören Marcelo Brozovic, Ivan Perisic und Matias Vecino. — Andrew Cesare Richardson
Budget: Rund 80 Millionen Euro stehen zur Verfügung, aber Sportdirektor Leonardo muss auch Spielerabgänge verwalten, um zu versuchen, die Bücher auszugleichen.
Was braucht die Mannschaft? Es gibt einige Positionen, die PSG verstärken möchte und Trainer Mauricio Pochettino will zumindest einen Rechtsverteidiger, einen Mittelfeldspieler und einen weiteren Stürmer. Hochwertige Außenverteidiger sind seit einiger Zeit ein Problem, während Moise Kean nur von Everton ausgeliehen wurde. Wenn sie seinen Deal nicht dauerhaft machen können, müssen sie ihn ersetzen. Sollten sich gute Chancen ergeben, würde PSG auch gerne einen Linksverteidiger, einen Torhüter und vielleicht einen Innenverteidiger rekrutieren.
Wer sind die wichtigsten Ziele? Inter-Außenverteidiger Hakimi hat Priorität, aber PSG ist nicht bereit, mehr als 40 Millionen Euro anzubieten, um ihn zu verpflichten, und der italienische Klub will das Doppelte. PSG möchte, dass Kean bleibt, aber Everton verlangt 50 Millionen Euro, was zu viel ist. Im Mittelfeld ist Leonardo nach wie vor ein großer Fan von Lazio Sergej Milinkovic-Savic und sein Vertrag wird nicht mehr mit über 100 Millionen Euro bewertet.
Wer könnte gehen? Die Liste möglicher Exits ist lang und umfasst Pablo Sarabia, Ander Herrera, Thilo Kehrer, Layvin Kurzawa, Mitchell Bakker. Grundsätzlich wird der Verein ein Angebot prüfen, es sei denn, Sie heißen Mbappe, Neymar, Keylor Navas, Marquinhos, Marco Verratti oder Presnel Kimpembe.
Kommen neue Verträge? Nachdem Neymar bis 2025 unterschrieben hat, zählt für PSG nur noch eine Verlängerung: Mbappe. Der 22-jährige Superstar läuft 2022 aus dem Vertrag und der Verein versucht seit Monaten, ihn zu verlängern. Sie sind immer noch zuversichtlich, aber die Zeit wird knapp.
