Possible future summer transfers
After the winter break come to an end, as well as the January transfer window, there have been a few whispers about some possible moves that can happen during the summer transfer window.
This time, a few well known names are involved in transfer rumours, and one of them is Luis Suárez. Well, the Uruguayan is probably not very appreciated by the Chelsea fans after biting Ivanovic in 2013, but it turns out that there are rumours linking Suárez to a possible move to Stamford Bridge, although in order for this to happen there a few conditionants. One of them is Antonio Conte having to be sacked, something that its not far from happening after taking the club to the unprecedented depths of fourth place. The other is about Luis Enrique, possible successor of the Italian coach. So, to summarise, if Antonio Conte get sacked, then Luis Enrique might be hired as head coach, and if the Spanish coach is hired, then maybe Luis Suárez join forces with Chelsea.
Real Madrid are also expected to go for a shopping spree in the summer, making every other club in the world feel financially inadequate. The Merengues have reportedly arranged a meeting with Neymar – it was supposed to be a secret meeting, but it was reported before it had even happened – and have also noted interest in Robert Lewandowski, with the polish striker close to fulfill his dream of becoming a galáctico. Madrid also want Eden Hazard, and if they get him, Chelsea will ask in return for Marco Asensio.
If some of this transfers from Real Madrid’s wish list happen, Gareth Bale might return to England, with Manchester United his likeliest destination. Well, if the welsh join forces with the Red Devils, it may be in part exchange for David de Gea, who is still Madrid’s No 1 choice. However, there have been an unsubtle flirt from Thibaut Courtois, quoting that his heart belonged to Madrid.
West Ham are exploring the possibility of signing Patrice Evra on a free transfer as David Moyes attempts to reinforce his defensive options. Evra had his contract with Marseille terminated by mutual consent in November after being handed a seven-month European ban for aiming a kick at one of the club’s own fans before a match, is understood to have visited West Ham’s training ground on Tuesday to hold talks over a potential move. Aaron Cresswell is West Ham’s only option at left-back, as Arthur Masuaku is serving a six-game ban for spitting at Wigan’s Nick Powell, during an FA Cup match.
