The winter transfer window is still open but some clubs have already announced plans for the summer. Newcastle United will strengthen their squad but first, they need to avoid relegation from the Premier League. While Manchester United have to find a new permanent manager in the summer. Erling Haaland can join Paris Saint-Germain in the summer to replace Kylian Mbappe. Who has been mentioned with a move to Real Madrid in the best 2022 transfer rumors.
There are lots of uncertainties in the world of football. Where even the biggest stars can lose the trust of the manager and be out of the first squad. Usually, we can’t see so many movements in the winter season. With most clubs waiting for the summer to sign new players. Managers can be appointed any time, but in some places, only interim managers get the job in the middle of the season. Just like it happened at Manchester United where someone will replace Ralf Ragnick in the summer. Meanwhile, Barcelona and Xavi are also planning to sign some new players, with fans hoping for Messi’s return to the club. It seems unlikely, but other players like Matthijs de Ligt and Edinson Cavani can join the Catalans.
Haaland’s move in best 2022 transfer rumors
The Norwegian striker, Erling Haaland has been dominating the transfer news recently after the best clubs want to sign him. Including Paris Saint-Germain, Manchester City and Bayern Munich. Haaland has joined Borussia Dortmund in 2020 and scored 56 goals in 57 appearances so far. Amazing performance from the 21-year-old who would be a perfect replacement for Kylian Mbappe at PSG. As the French forward has been linked to Real Madrid for a long time now but so far the transfer didn’t come true.
Real still want to sign the most expensive player of the world who chose PSG instead of the Blancos in 2017. And this year he might eventually move to Madrid where he is seen as the heir of Cristiano Ronaldo. The club was willing to pay a huge amount for Mbappe but the French club has always refused their offers until now. But they might let him go in the summer in case they find a capable replacement. Unless Real chose to sign Haaland instead who might be a cheaper and easier alternative. Anyway, Mbappe’s possible departure still belongs to the best 2022 transfer rumors.
New players at Barcelona
The other Spanish giant, FC Barcelona are having one of their worst seasons in La Liga, even though the club legend Xavi’s arrival has helped a bit. But the team is still a shadow of the previous winning team since the leave of Lionel Messi. Some fans hope that the Argentine will return back to the club in the summer, just like Daniel Alves did a few weeks ago. But probably the financial situation of the club doesn’t allow Messi’s resigning. Other players might join the club though in the next few months.
Like Juventus defender Matthijs De Ligt, who has been a target for Barcelona to strengthen their defense. The former Ajax teammate of Frenkie de Jong joined the Italian club in 2019 and has been a regular player in the team. A current Ajax player, left-back Nico Tagliafico can also join the Catalans. The 29-year-old Argentine has been at Ajax for three years now, but he also played for Murcia on loan. Chelsea centre-backs Cesar Azpilicueta and Andreas Christense can also be a target after their contracts will expire in the summer. And another possible arriver can be Manchester United player Edinson Cavani, who struggled to get playing time at the Red Devils. Online sportsbooks in Spain now offer the odds of 3.66 for his arrival at Barcelona.
Changes at Manchester United and Arsenal
After the sacking of Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solksjaer, the club appointed Ralf Rangnick as interim manager for the rest of the season. But it also means they need to find a new permanent manager in the summer to take over the job. The current PSG boss, Mauricio Pochettino has the smallest odds, 2.50 to get the job. But Ajax manager Erik ten Hag, Leicester City boss Brendan Rogers and even Rangnick is mentioned as potential candidates. There might be some movements in the United squad until the new appointment, with several players future being unsecure.
Anthony Martial, Jesse Lingard and Edinson Cavani can leave the club on loan already in the winter. But Paul Pogba’s place is not sure either. Online gambling sites in Spain mention PSG as a possible next club for the French midfielder. According to the latest rumors though he prefers to join Real Madrid in the summer. The former Arsenal captain, Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang is also likely to leave his club after disagreements with the Gunners manager, Mikel Arteta. Several clubs can be interested in signing him from Barcelona to Newcastle United. His replacement can be Fiorentina striker Dusan Vlahovic, who is one of the most sought after players right now. The 21-year-old Serbian scored 16 goals in 19 game so far and is in the interest of other top clubs like Juventus and Manchester City as well.
