The transfer window rumour mill continues to throw up plenty of potential moves that might happen over the next few weeks.
Here is our latest look at the deals which could well go through before the window closes.
Gareth Bale is never far away from the news when the transfer window is open.
He recently confirmed in an interview with Sky Sports that Real Madrid had blocked a potential move “at the last minute” in 2019. He’s reportedly been seeking a new club since the 2018 Champions League final, but many feel that it is his high wage demands that have scuppered an array of potential suiters’ chances to sign him.
Would he take a pay cut? If he were to move to Spurs, favourites at 11/10, he would certainly need to do so. But with the added draw of Jose Mourinho, coupled with a chance to link up with a fan base who will show him the love he has been missing in Spain, it might just be the most likely option during this window.
Manchester United are second favourites at 10/1, but this seems unlikely given their reported interest in winger Jadon Sancho and the profile of player that the club have been seemingly interested in signing in recent seasons, with Bale turning 31 in July.
This would be a big blow for Inter Milan, who relied on Romelu Lukaku and Lautaro Martinez’s fruitful partnership for the duration of the 2019/20 season, with the pair notching over 50 goals between them last campaign.
Barcelona are the favourites for Martinez’s signature at Evens, understandably given Luis Suarez’s potential Nou Camp exit, with rumours that Arturo Vidal could head the other way as part of a swap deal.
Talking of Barcelona, Antoine Griezmann’s agent has claimed that his client had decided he wanted to leave before the end of the season, prior to the mass media attention around the Catalan club.
Rumours suggest that new boss Ronald Koeman has offered the 29-year-old a “bigger” role within the team, but it is thought that Griezmann has his mind made up.
