Hello everybody and welcome to MARCA English’s transfer market live blog, which will be keeping you up to date with the latest transfer rumours and completed moves.
Now that the domestic league seasons and the European competitions in the continent’s top footballing countries have now come to an end, the focus now turns towards which players might be on the move this summer.
The transfer window does not officially open on June 10, with most deals not going through until July 1, but some major dominoes have started to fall, as Erling Haaland has agreed to join Manchester City and Kylian Mbappe is staying at Paris Saint-Germain.
Mbappe’s rejection of Real Madrid has caused Los Blancos to focus their efforts on signing Monaco midfielder Aurelien Tchouameni, however they face some competition for his signature from Liverpool and Paris Saint-Germain.
There are also several big-name players that are set to become free agents this summer, with the likes of Paul Pogba, Paulo Dybala and Ousmane Dembele all having their contracts end on June 30.
