As every year, the transfer market will paralyze the football planet. Here are four names that could well be the protagonists of this summer’s soap operas.

Sadio Mané will be one of the great animators of the summer transfer window.

Luis Campos

When Kylian Mbappé revealed he was looking to extend his Paris lease, PSG supporters spent the 90 minutes of the game against Metz celebrating their hero. However, keeping Bondy’s child was only the first in a long list of boxes for Paris leaders to tick. Second priority to sack Leonardo from his position as sporting director and replace him with Portuguese Luis Campos, ex-Monaco and close to the Mbappé clan.

Luis Campos is already one of the big names this summer transfer window as the construction site on the Parc des Princes side is important. His name appears in all PSG files: that of Mauricio Pochettino’s future, that of the replacement for the same Pochettino (Christophe Galtier, the OGC Nice coach seems to have a head start), that of the undesirables who don’t want to leave (Icardi an the top, followed by Herrera and Kurzawa), those of Ousmane Dembélé, Kimpembe, Tchouaméni and so many others.

Despite this constant shaping of the Paris transfer window, one question remains unanswered: will Luis Campos have enough leeway against Qatar’s high spheres to make his mark? His predecessors Leonardo and Antero Henrique had to deal with the interference of the Emir of Qatar in sporting decisions on several occasions in the past…

The fates of Kylian Mbappé and Erling Haaland have been settled since May, the star at the center of all desires is now Sadio Mané, who only has a one-year contract with Liverpool. But while rumors of a possible exit simmer, what about the player’s will? The main protagonist is sticking to the blurriness for the time being.

“Like everyone else, I’m on social media and seeing the comments. 60-70% of Senegalese want me to leave Liverpool? I’ll do whatever they want,” the winger cryptically slipped at a press conference this week, before correcting himself a few hours later by saying it was a joke.

So which kit could the Banbali native wear next season? Liverpool’s rivals sacked, La Liga giants uninterested, one name pops up insistently: that of Bayern Munich. Also, Bayern’s sporting director and CEO – the legendary Oliver Kahn – was present in the stands of the Stade de France to watch Mané during the Champions League final.

Robert Lewandowski

mane inLewandowski out? In eight years at the Allianz Arena, Lewandowski has had time to fill his trophy cabinet to the brim. After winning everything at FC Bayern, the Polish striker is looking for a new challenge. This information is even publicly known since the player commented on the matter. “At the moment it is certain that my days at FC Bayern are over. The transfer will be a good solution for both sides. And I don’t think Bayern will stop me just because they can,” Bayern’s second-highest goalscorer announced publicly last week.

If “Lewa” wants to confidently approach a departure from FC Bayern through the front door and without incident, his superiors do not seem determined to make it easier for him. “We have always said that Lewandowski has a contract with FC Bayern Munich until June 30, 2023. And a contract is a contract! I’m a little surprised Robert chose to go public with the affair,” replied coldly in the columns of pictureHerbert Hainer, the President of FC Bayern.

If the German league leaders happen to comply with his number 9’s request, FC Barcelona would be the most likely destination for Lewandowski. But again it gets stuck. “To date, Barça are still unable to sign Lewandowski,” ruled Javier Tebas, La Liga’s deputy media president.

The salary limits decided by La Liga come into question this time; Based on each club’s income, the Spanish league sets the maximum amount that can be allocated to player salaries. And as Barca’s income has melted away since the pandemic, his salary cap has been lowered significantly. Since March it has even been -144 million: This means that the club is making losses Blaugrana were even bigger than La Liga had expected. The only solution to reduce the payroll and be able to recruit: sell.

Angel of Mary

Ángel Di María may not be thrilled but his adventure at PSG is finally over. “I wanted to stay. I had a two year contract. I played one and the other was optional; it had to be confirmed by both parties,” lamented the former Real Madrid in an interview with the country this week. Satisfied or not, Ángel Di María is now a free player. And a player for whom teams rush to goal!

In Argentina it is hinchas of Rosario Central begin to dream of returning to the prodigy’s herd. On the old continent, Juventus has been following the player for months. But the freshest leads lead the player to Barca’s side, where a one-year deal would be waiting for him. For his part El Fideo admit I haven’t made up my mind yet.
