Top summer transfer targets

Published 1 Comments

With Premier League clubs set to welcome a windfall of cash from TV rights next season we could be in for a sensational summer of transfers.

Here we take a look at four star names who could command some staggering fees if they are to move this summer.

Robert Lewandowski | Borussia Dortmund

Dortmund's very own piece of gold looks to be on his way out in the future after he refused to sign a contract extension with them. So much of the speculation has been linking him to arch rivals Bayern Munich but with young rising star Mario Gotze leaving for Munich too Dortmund do not want to fuel yet another successful campaign for the Bavarians. 

There has also been links to Old Trafford but with Fergie going it would be up to David Moyes to decide whether he wants to splash the cash on the Polish international. 

What can be certain though is what Lewandowski brings to an attack with an outstanding 35 goals in all competitions this season and he also became the first player to score four in a Champions League semi-final.

Radamel Falcao | Atletico Madrid

The Columbia looks set to leave Madrid in the summer but his destination is still unclear rumoured that it's not even worth predicting with PSG, Chelsea, Manchester United and Manchester City all in the mix for his highly prized signature. It is also believed that Monaco are confident of prizing the coveted man away from Atletico. 27 La Liga goals speaks for itself in the transfer market, but whoever wants him will have to dig deep to get Atletico to agree to a sale.

Cristiano Ronaldo | Real Madrid

The world's most expensive player could be on the move again. Mourinho looks to be leaving Real and Ronaldo is said to be keen to follow him meaning he is being linked with Chelsea. 

A move to the Bridge might seem to be firmly in dreamland for Blues fans, but players will do anything to stay with the same manager. The transfer record may have to be broken again for his signature but Chelsea face a direct challenge from a more likely destination at Old Trafford. 54 goals in all competitions says he would be a prize asset for any side.

Gareth Bale | Tottenham Hotspur

Bale has been one of the brightest sparks in world football this season and the least the Welshman deserves is to be playing Champions League football next season, a height Spurs are unlikely to reach.

Failure to qualify to compete with Europe's best would be enough to drive Bale abroad with the likelihood being that the Welshman ends up in a Real Madrid shirt next season, especially if Ronaldo leaves. The pric tag on Bale’s head will likely be upwards of £50 million but we know the big teams are willing to pay big prices for big players.
