With the transfer window closing in a matter of weeks, there is still plenty of business to sort out before the new season gets under way.
Let’s take a closer look at some of the potential big-money transfers that could still go through ahead of the 2019/20 campaign.
According to Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane, Bale’s time at the Bernabeu is nearly up.
The Welshman has claimed four Champions League trophies along with the La Liga title since his world-record transfer to the Spanish giants but he has never really settled in Madrid.
Despite his accolades and stunning individual moments in big games, Bale looks set to move.
Chinese Super League club Beijing Guoan have reportedly offered the 30-year-old Bale a lucrative deal however Paris St-Germain have now emerged as potential buyers.
Bale is likely to favor a move to one of the top European clubs as a transfer to China would be seen as a huge step-down for a player of his quality.
Gareth Bale to sign for:
Any Chinese club – 1.73
Tottenham Hotspur – 10.00
Paris Saint-Germain – 26.00
Like Bale, Pogba has struggled to settle since his high-profile move from Juventus to Manchester United.
The enigmatic Frenchman spoke of finding a new challenge recently and could soon be heading for the Old Trafford exit.
It’s been reported that unrest behind the scenes could be Pogba’s main reason for wanting to the club however the team’s performances on the pitch also haven’t been good enough.
The 26-year-old Pogba showed glimpses of what he is capable of last season but failed to deliver the goods on a regular basis for United.
Real Madrid are the favorites to seal Pogba’s signature while a return to former club Juventus is not entirely off the cards.

Real Madrid – 2.20
Juventus – 21.00
Paris Saint-Germain – 26.00
Another player set to leave Manchester United is Romelu Lukaku.
United have already turned down a bid somewhere in the region of $65million for Lukaku however Inter Milan are likely to improve their offer.
The giant Belgian has been continuously linked with a move to Italy and new Inter boss Antonio Conte is a big admirer of the striker.
This Lukaku deal seems a lot more likely to go ahead than the Pogba transfer, hence the short odds.
Romelu Lukaku to sign for:
Inter Milan – 1.17
Juventus – 8.00
Paris Saint-Germain – 21.00
Other potential transfers
Neymar has been told that he can leave Paris Saint-Germain and a move back to his former employers Barcelona looks like his most probable destination.

Arsenal have already had a bid for Wilfried Zaha rejected by Crystal Palace however the tricky winger is still likely to move across London before the transfer window closes.
Wilfried Zaha to sign for Arsenal – 1.91
Harry Maguire has told Leicester City that he wants to leave the club and both Manchester United and Manchester City are keen on signing the highly-rated defender.

There is always plenty of drama on deadline day as clubs try to push through last minute deals and we are likely to see some serious money being spent before the window shuts.
