1. Jerome Boateng To Chelsea

What’s the story?

According to the reports from Daily Mail, Chelsea are currently interested in Bayern Munich defender Jerome Boateng, as Antonio Conte looks to strengthen his back line for next season as he prepares to defend the Premier League crown.

Should the deal take place?

The German defender has been with the Bundesliga champions since 2011 and won everything there possibly is to win with them.

As Nathan Ake and Kurt Zouma face uncertain futures at the Bridge, their exits could pave way for the arrival of the world cup winning defender, who despite facing an injury hit season, is one of the best in the world right now, and could be an Italian manager’s dream inclusion in the team. After failing to make an impression with Manchester City, this might be his chance to prove to England the talent he really is.

Possibility of it happening

A new challenge might be exciting for Boateng in his career at the moment, but leaving a side assured of winning trophies might be a tough decision to make. 5/10 to this one.

2. Asmir Begovic To Bournemouth

What’s the story?

As confirmed by both teams involved through their official Twitter accounts, Asmir Begovic has completed a move to AFC Bournemouth after a two year stay with the London Blues, and will be joining the Cherries from the 1st of July.

Should the deal have taken place?

The big Bosnian international has found game time in limited amounts under different managers at Chelsea, and given the shot stopping abilities he possesses and his will to play more, a move to high flying Bournemouth makes complete sense.

3. Gareth Bale To Manchester United

What’s the story?

Jose Mourinho is ready to step up his chase for long time target Gareth Bale, and a mega move for the Welshman could well be decided after the UEFA Champions League final, believes Spanish outlet Mundo Deportivo.

Should the deal take place?

After facing an injury filled campaign, Gareth Bale has finally returned back to fitness, but whether he regains his starting position in the starting line up for the Champions League to take place in his hometown final next week remains to be seen. Isco has stepped in brilliantly during the winger’s absence, and his recent performances and contributions might have manager Zinedine Zidane convinced to begin the big night in Cardiff with the Spaniard on the pitch.

Possibility of it happening

The Red Devils are finally back into the Champions League next season, and with money and manager both under their belt, attracting the best players from around the world is their number one priority for this summer’s window.

As the Portuguese looks for attacking options, Gareth Bale is as good as they come, and despite a heavy price tag and injury worries, Mourinho remains a fan of the player’s abilities, and hence, there remains a good 6/10 that might see this deal actually taking place.

4. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang To La Liga

What’s the story?

It could be a clash of the titans as La Liga giants, Barcelona and Real Madrid, prepare to battle it out with each other in order to avail the services of Borussia Dortmund’s super striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Should the deal take place?

€90 million is the humongous amount a team will have to pay to purchase the striker and his goal getting abilities, a figure either of the gigantic names involved are easily capable of achieving. The player has stats that deserve a trophy and various honours, and hence, a move to any of these big boys seems right for a forward in the form of his life.

Possibility of it happening

Aubameyang was the Bundesliga’s top scorer this season with 31 goals, and having earlier expressed his desire to play for Real Madrid in the future, the Bernabeu could very likely be his destination, with chances of it happening standing at 7/10.
