Premier League transfers that could happen this summer

Published Add your comment

With the 2014/15 Premier League season drawing to a dramatic close, it's about right that we begin considering which worldwide superstars will be joining us here for the next campaign.

Huge names have been linked to Manchester United and Chelsea. But the real question that lies beneath is who will actually make the move?

Here, Luke Greaves offers the likelihood rating of a transfer and how successful they really could be in the big time.

Edinson Cavani

First it was Arsenal who were linked, then it was Chelsea, and now it is Manchester United. It seems that one minute he is moving and then the next he is not. But what is really happening?

The Uruguayan would be quite the perfect fit in England and I just hope a move will transpire. Personally, I don't think that PSG will actually let go of him. He is a key player to the French club and breaking his thriving partnership with Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who too has been linked away from the Parc des Princes, would be devastating.

There is a 4/10 chance of this being pulled off, most likely by Chelsea despite the many Manchester United rumours.

Mats Hummels

This is another transfer saga that I hope comes to an end sooner rather than later. Manchester United seem to be the only team in the frame for the big German defender which may not be as dramatic, but all-in-all is probably better in the long run because it isn't so confusing. 

The main question is when Hummels will make the move. Many expected it to be done and dusted in January whilst the Red Devils' defensive issues were at a sky-high level, but that move wasn't done in time.

Whilst the chances of this happening are seemingly high - 9/10, anyone? - I often find myself disputing over his quality. Is he really what United need? I think they can do much better.

Gareth Bale

Zinedine Zidane this week ruled out a departure for Gareth Bale, who has been consistently linked with Manchester United and Chelsea. Although I'm pretty sure Zidane is not the man in charge of transfers in Madrid...

But personally I think that moving to Real Madrid has ruined the career of the Welsh international which can be seen with a dip in form. I expect him to stay at the Bernabeu this summer, despite the speculation. 1/10.

Paul Pogba

Here's another persistent transfer rumour that could become fact this summer - Paul Pogba to, well, just about everyone.

But fear not everybody, this player seems to be making his way back to Old Trafford. Or so says Metro.

A transfer of some description this summer would seem to be around 7/10. However, what if Juventus win the Champions League?
