It’s the summer transfer window! That time of the year when players are bought and sold for unfathomable amounts of money. There are quite a few wealthy clubs in desperate need of quality players at the moment, so don’t be surprised if a few records are broken.

There are so many rumors floating around right now so let’s stick to the more credible ones. Where will the biggest names in interntional soccer being suiting up next year? Here are the odds!




Kylian Mbappé (Monaco)

Monaco finished the season ahead of PSG and even reached the semi-finals of the Champions League. They have Kylian Mbappé to thank for that.

At just 18 years old, Mbappé is already one of the most sought-after players in the world. Especially now, when so many top clubs lack a world-class striker; the young Frenchman will be one of the biggest catches of the year.

He’s been linked to Real Madrid and Arsenal, but could also choose to stay at Monaco and develop a little more before leaving.

Odds to start 2017-18 at

  • AS Monaco: 3/2
  • Real Madrid: 7/3
  • Arsenal: 17/3

James Rodríguez (Real Madrid)

James Rodriguez was snapped up by Real Madrid after his stellar performance at the World Cup, and for a while, he seemed at home. But the attacking midfielder doesn’t have a clear role in the squad anymore, and now both he and the club are happy to part ways.

AC Milan have already made an impressive bid, but Rodríguez has ruled them out. If he’s going to move, it’ll probably be to the Premier League. Though none have made a bid yet, Manchester United, Arsenal, and Chelsea are all rumored to be interested.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (Borussia Dortmund)

Borussia Dortmund have made it known that they are willing to part with Aubameyang if an acceptable offer is made.

He was originally said to be heading to PSG, but recently those rumors have died down. Manchester City and Man U are apparently very interested, and Chelsea are in need of a replacement for Diego Costa.

Dani Alves (Juventus)

The former Barcelona defender was a great signing for Juventus last season, but apparently Alves has requested a transfer to Man City where he’ll be with his former manager Pep Guardiola. It’ll be a tough loss for Juve, but they’ll let him go if the price is right.

Man City lack quality defenders at the moment and Alves would be the perfect addition to the backline. They’ll be willing to splash some serious cash for him.
