As another long season ends, the transfer rumours get into full swing. But will any of Europe's top players be on the move? Here we will have a look at where we think Europe's finest will be plying their trade in the new season.

Wayne Rooney
Prediction: Stay at Man Utd

Wayne Rooney will remain at Manchester United next season. The Red Devils do not want to sell and have made it clear they won't. With David Moyes now at the helm, I believe a 'clear-the-air' meeting will take place. 

I fully expect Moyes to tell Rooney he is wanted at United and will play an integral part in his plans as they bid to retain their Premier League title, as well as having another crack at the Champions League.

Prediction: Join Barcelona

Barcelona need a player who can take some of the pressure off Lionel Messi. As great as he is, he can't continue to be the provider of most of their goals. Neymar can be just that. 

A skilful player who can score all types of goals and give Barcelona another option. He can play on the left or in the middle and create one of the most dangerous front-lines in world football. I think a deal will take place with Barcelona, paying around £60 million for the Brazilian.

Gareth Bale
Prediction: Stay at Tottenham

This one's pretty simple. Tottenham don't want to sell. Gareth Bale has said he intends to stay at Tottenham whether or not there is Champions League football and he is under a long contract. Bale won't move, whatever offer comes in.

Luis Suarez
Prediction: Stay at Liverpool

Luis Suarez has made it clear he is happy at Liverpool, and despite all he has done Liverpool want to keep him. I can't see a top European team wanting to sign Suarez - you will get a top player but one who could do something when he gets angry and could then miss a part of the season through suspension. For the money Liverpool would want, he simply isn't worth signing. The only way I can see a deal taking place is if an offer of around £40 million comes in and Suarez decides he wants to go.

Robert Lewandowski
Prediction: Joins Manchester City

He has been linked with Manchester United but I don't think a bid will come. I think Manchester City will want a top striker who can score goals and Lewandowski is just that. 

Dortmund have said they are interested in Manchester City's Edin Dzeko so I think a player-plus-cash deal will happen.

Radamel Falcao
Prediction: Joins Chelsea

Chelsea need a top striker - Fernando Torres has not lived up to expectations and Demba Ba lacks Champions League experience. 

Radamel Falcao fits the bill and with Jose Mourinho all but confirmed as the next Chelsea manager, I can see him wanting a big physical striker in the mould of Falcao.

Mats Hummels
Prediction: Joins Manchester United

Manchester United have two ageing defenders in Rio Ferdinand and Nemanja Vidic and neither can play two games a week. They have two young future centre-backs in Chris Smalling and Phil Jones, but they lack the experience for the top matches. 

Jonny Evans can fill in but United need a top centre-back with European experience to play alongside Ferdinand or Vidic and replace them when they leave in the future. Hummels would be a great partner for Jones for many years to come.
