Premier League

Harry Kane to Man City, Jadon Sancho to Man Utd… five biggest summer transfers as window opens today

THE Premier League could see an influx of some of the world’s best players with the transfer window now officially open.

In what could be one of the busiest summers in recent years, a number of high-profile stars will be swapping clubs in big-money moves.

Tottenham striker Harry Kane is facing an uncertain future in North London

Liverpool have already announced the arrival of Ibrahima Konate from RB Leipzig after triggering his £36million release clause.

Meanwhile Aston Villa have agreed a club-record deal to sign playmaker Emiliano Buendia from Norwich worth up to £38m.

Here SunSport takes a look at some of the biggest transfers that could take place before the August 31 deadline.

Harry Kane – Tottenham to Manchester City

The Spurs forward, 27, told the club in May he wishes to leave in the summer, with a move to the Citizens believed to be his priority.

SunSport have exclusively revealed that Daniel Levy will only sell the England international should he receive at least £150m.

And he is unwilling to accept City’s proposal of £60m plus Raheem Sterling and Gabriel Jesus.

Pep Guardiola is desperate to bring in a new centre-forward after City released Sergio Aguero, though negotiations to sign Kane are yet to take place.

Jadon Sancho – Borussia Dortmund to Manchester United

Having failed to sign the 21-year-old last year, the Red Devils are determined to not miss out on the Londoner this time around.

Dortmund were seeking £108m for Sancho in 2020, but are prepared to let him leave for nearly £30m less.

And it has been claimed that United have opened fresh talks to sign the winger who is highly thought of by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

United have been given a boost in their quest to sign Sancho after BVB’s director Michael Zorc admitted the club will not stand in his way if a suitable offer comes in.

He told ARD: “We already had a gentlemen’s agreement with Jadon last year that he can switch under certain conditions.”

Erlind Haaland – Borussia Dortmund to Chelsea

Despite Timo Werner impressing under the tutelage of Thomas Tuchel, his lack of Premier League goals could see the Blues to search for another striker.

And the German gaffer could look to raid his former employers to bring Norway international Haaland to Stamford Bridge in a £150m deal.

According to the Telegraph, Haaland would be open to holding talks over a potential switch to the European champions.

The 20-year-old frontman is believed to be demanding around £300,000-a-week to sign on the dotted line.

Chelsea have also looked into signing Kane and Inter Milan forward Romelu Lukaku.

But both deals appear highly unlikely leaving Tuchel to make his move for Haaland.

Cristiano Ronaldo – Juventus to Man Utd/PSG

With just one year left on his deal in Turin, the six-time Ballon d’Or winner has been tipped with a move away from Italy.

It has been stated that Ronaldo’s representatives have contacted United and Paris Saint-Germain over a potential switch.

Corriere dello Sport suggests the Theatre of Dreams is one possible destination for him, but United would only be able to offer him a reduced salary.

Meanwhile reports have claimed that PSG are in talks to sign the 36-year-old, who would be open to competing in Ligue 1.

Talk of a sensational PSG switch has gathered pace since Neymar’s bombshell interview last month where he declared he wants to play alongside the Portugal international.

Kylian Mbappe – PSG to Real Madrid

Like Ronaldo, the Frenchman‘s contract will expire in 2022, leading to him to be potentially sold this summer.

Real Madrid are long-term admirers of the 22-year-old having failed to secure his services when he was just 14.

Mbappe reportedly has a ‘family agreement’ to join the LaLiga side.

His Les Bleus team-mate Karim Benzema has even urged the player to join him in Spain as he talked of a possible transfer.
