PSG, Barça, Manchester United … the hot files of the European leaders before the end of the transfer window

The summer transfer window closes on Thursday, September 1 in the five major European championships. The opportunity for big clubs to finish their last most boiling files or part with surplus players.

It’s almost time for the bell. The German clubs will be the first to close the ball in the transfer window this Thursday from 5 pm. After the Bundesliga, the other major European championships (Italy, Spain, France, England) will also see their clubs activate to complete the final recruitments or exits in the summer before the deadline.

Between those still looking to strengthen themselves to shine on the national or continental stages and those hoping to part ways with players who have become unwanted, several big transfers are likely to take place on Thursday night between of European leaders.

At PSG, several other recruits are expected to leave

Expected for several days, the transfer of Fabian Ruiz to the Ile-de-France club is formal. But the Spanish midfielder is not necessarily the last shot of the Luis Campos-Christophe Galtier duo before the end of the transfer window.

PSG have also accelerated the arrival of Carlos Soler and already have a 20 million euro deal with Valencia for the 25-year-old attacking midfielder. What about other players who want to manage the capital club?

Christophe Galtier repeated this but he is looking to get another defender. In defence, the track towards Milan Skriniar seems complicated although the PSG boss refused to “say it is complete” ahead of the Ligue 1 match against Toulouse. Plan B after the Slovak from Inter Milan, Axel Disasi was valued at 50 million euros by AS Monaco.

Accustomed to recruiting, Paris also learned to sell this summer. After launching its degreasing operation, PSG parted with Ander Herrera, Thilo Kehrer, Georginio Wijnaldum or even Alphonse Areola and Arnaud Kalimuendo.

But the summer laundry is not over yet as Idrissa Gueye will join Everton and the Ile-de-France club are still negotiating the departures of Leandro Paredes (Juventus) and Mauro Icardi.

Barcelona, ​​​​​​​​​​​an end of the transfer window linked to finances

For a hundred bricks, you have nothing… and yet. Despite finances in the red at the start of the summer, Barça signed a big summer recruitment. Raphinha, Jules Koundé and Robert Lewandowski have already arrived but Xavi could still welcome one or more recruits. The prospect of seeing Marcos Alonso land from Chelsea remains vital. Weaker, on the other hand, is the possibility of seeing Bernardo Silva signed even if Pep Guardiola revives the idea of ​​Manchester City.

But now, the management of the Blaugrana club has its hands tied in its economic situation, many departures are expected. Chelsea are still negotiating for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Barca are expecting around 25 million euros from him. It is also difficult to know if Memphis Depay and Miralem Pjanic will stay or if the Catalans will save their salaries for last-minute departures.

Manchester during the panic buy, Ronaldo left to stay

Between the loss of the Champions League and the first games of the Premier League, the Red Devils had a complicated start to the season before beating Liverpool (2-0). In terms of the transfer window, it is similar to many failures such as Frenkie De Jong, Kevin Trapp and even Jurrien Timber.

To this is added the thorny file Cristiano Ronaldo. Frustrated with his situation in the sport on the side of Old Trafford, the striker wanted to leave throughout the summer but had to stay, due to the lack of a club interested in welcoming him.

But then things improved and the Red Devils signed Lisandro Martinez, Casemiro and then Antony. Martin Dubravka should also sign to be David De Gea’s understudy. It remains to be seen whether the sums invested at the end of the transfer window for Casemiro (€70m) and Antony (€100m) will not make them resounding flops in the coming months.

If the (intended) departure of Aaron Wan-Bissaka happens, Erik Ten Hag will still follow Thomas Meunier and Sergino Dest. But Borussia Dortmund or Barcelona will have to be convinced to release their right-back. Again, a big check will help the English club win their case.

Chelsea are waiting for Fofana and hoping for Aubameyang and Gordon

After weeks of negotiations with Leicester, Chelsea have completed the transfer of Wesley Fofana. While neither club has made the news official, the 21-year-old Frenchman has signed a six-year contract with the Blues according to information from RMC Sport.

To strengthen their central hinge, the Londoners released 82 million euros. A good investment but it is not the end for Thomas Tuchel and his new owner Todd Boehly. The name of the promising Croatian from Leipzig, Josko Gvardiol, has returned with insults for several weeks.

Chelsea continue negotiations with Barca for the transfer of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. More than six months after leaving Arsenal, the Gabonese striker looks set to return to London. But to the Blues, Gunners supporters will be grateful. Another player that Thomas Tuchel is tracking, Anthony Gordon scored for Everton this week.

What drives his coach Frank Lampard to want to keep him. Clearly, unless there is an extraordinary offer, the 21-year-old striker should not leave the Toffees. But the last days of the summer transfer window sometimes reserve some surprises and give the last big transfers.
