The summer transfer window may not be as exciting as the football season itself, but it's certainly a close second. Transfer deadline day is one of the most thrilling days of the football calendar, but plenty of big-money deals involving high-profile stars will go through before then.
In this article we've attempted to predict five future deals that will happen before the summer transfer window closes on September 2. Remember: there's a possibility that none of these deals will go through, but reports suggest there's a chance - however small - that all five transfers will happen.
We can't offer any guarantees and are merely attempting to encourage some debate: which of the deals do you think will happen this summer? We also want to hear your predictions. Tell us in the comments section below about which transfers you believe will go through. All ideas are welcomed.
Other predicted transfers
Where's Luis Suarez and Alexis Sanchez, we hear you cry. We've deliberately omitted several potential deals because they're simply too obvious. Suarez is off to Barcelona; Sanchez will join either Arsenal, Liverpool or Manchester United; Toni Kroos is heading from Bayern Munich to Real Madrid and Sami Khedira could be on his way to the Emirates Stadium.
We've been a bit more adventurous with our predictions. Yes, they're bold, and yes, we're setting ourselves up for a fall, but where's fun in listing a bunch of transfers the average bloke down the pub could tell you will happen this summer?
We know you demand - and expect - more than that. So scroll through this list by clicking 'begin slideshow' and leave a comment after you've finished.
