What’s the story?

After rumours rushing in through the door and the news being full of it, the Bayern Munich and Corentin Tolisso transfer saga finally came to an end, as the German club managed to get the signature of the player and used their official website to reveal the signing.

The 22-year-old midfielder becomes a valuable addition for Carlo Ancelotti in the centre of the park, and his 14 goals for Lyon last season might be a stat the team will be eager to see being repeated.

Should the deal have taken place?

As the Bundesliga Champions prepare to cope with life without Philipp Lahm and Xabi Alonso in the upcoming new season, they are digging into the transfer market in the hope of finding a player that can become the hero they need.

After signing Gnabry, Tolisso becomes the next young and talented player to join Bayern side, and the French international could become a part of the greatest if he uses his abilities to the fullest.

2. Douglas Costa To Juventus

What’s the story?

After two seasons in Germany, reports coming in from La Gazzetta dello Sport suggest that Douglas Costa could well be heading for the exit doors at the Allianz Arena and towards Juventus, as an agreement seems to have been reached by both parties involved.

Despite the final fee not being decided, everything is in order for the switch to be made for the €35-50 million rated superstar, the former being Juve’s assessment and the latter being Bayern’s.

Should the deal take place?

When the Brazilian arrived from Shakhtar Donetsk two seasons back, he burst onto the scene in the Bayern squad, but the elevation that a man of his talents deserves has not been coming. As he struggles to get his career back on the perfect track, the addition of Serge Gnabry might be an indication towards the preferences and plans Ancelotti has in mind, and hence, a move to the Italian Champions might make perfect sense for the young player with utmost potential.

Possibility of it happening

The possibility of this deal coming to a successful end is currently at 7/10.

3. Nemanja Matic To Manchester United

What’s the story?

As Juventus pull out of the race to sign Chelsea midfielder Nemanja Matic, claims that Jose Mourinho and his Manchester United side are taking keen interest in the player’s availability and talents on offer.

The Portuguese boss has managed the Serbian during his days in charge of the Blues, and thus, knows everything there is to know about what his playing locker is full of.

Should the deal take place?

As Antonio Conte comes ever so close to signing midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko, Matic might be a tad bit worried about his position in the lineup for the upcoming season, and reuniting with the boss that brought him to English football might not be such a bad idea.

Possibility of it happening

With the player having bought a new house in London and waiting for a contract renewal at Stamford Bridge, Mourinho and his plans might have an outside chance of working, hence having a possibility of 5/10 that can go either way.

4. Olivier Giroud To Leave Arsenal

What’s the story?

The Gunners are desperate to climb back to the top next season after having a disastrous previous few months in football, and are hence, all over the transfer market looking for possible positive changes to the squad. Amid such hectic times at the Emirates, The Evening Standard came up with a report claiming that Olivier Giroud could well be heading out of the club during the summer.

Should the deal take place?

Despite his impressive stats and wonderful goal scoring abilities, the Frenchman has never really delivered when needed at Arsenal, and that saw him dip heavily out of favour in the last few months of the previous campaign. In addition to that, Arsene Wenger seems to be chasing Alexandre Lacazette and Kylian Mbappe as first choice strikers for next term, which is nothing but further indication that heading out of the exit door might be the wisest option to choose.

Possibility of it happening

With West Ham emerging as a possible destination, the French forward might have played his last game for Arsenal last season, and hence, a possibility of 9/10 exists of him saying goodbye.
