The annual January transfer window is now open and many of Europe’s top clubs will be looking to add to their squad over the next few weeks.
So, let’s take a look at some of the potential big-money transfers that could go through before the window closes and also assess the bookies’ odds for this particular betting market.
It’s looking increasingly likely that Paul Pogba will leave Manchester United in the not too distant future. The Frenchman has failed to settle at Old Trafford following his high-profile move from Juventus in 2016. Real Madrid are the favorites to claim Pogba’s signature, while former club Juventus are also in the running.
Paul Pogba to sign for: Real Madrid – 3.10 / Juventus – 6.00 / Barcelona – 13.00
Bale was close to leaving Real Madrid in the previous transfer window, but the 30-year-old failed to engineer a move away from Los Blancos. The Welshman was reportedly on his way to China last year, but Tottenham Hotspur – now managed by Bale’s former boss Jose Mourinho – look set to lead the race to sign the winger.

Neymar was told that he was free to leave Paris Saint-Germain last season with his former club Barcelona keen on re-signing the Brazilian superstar. The Catalan giants are the bookies’ favorites again this season to lure Neymar away from the French champions, while Real Madrid could be in line to make a controversial approach for the 27-year-old old.

After establishing himself as one of the hottest young prospects in world soccer, Jadon Sancho has attracted attention from many of Europe’s top clubs. The exciting English teenager moved to Borussia Dortmund after failing to break into Manchester City’s first-team, but he is now rumored to be on the radar of a number of City’s EPL rivals.
