Jadon Sancho and Erling Haaland to Manchester United, Harry Kane to Man City, Kylian Mbappe to Liverpool? Big transfers involving Premier League clubs that could happen as summer window opens

The Premier League summer transfer window is now officially open and work is well under way towards building for the new season.

With life gradually returning to normal, that could lead to some big transfers involving the highest-profile players in the game.

While Erling Haaland has also been heavily linked with a move to the Premier League

Sergio Aguero has already left Manchester City for Barcelona on a free transfer, which is a major move.

Will Pep Guardiola replace him, or will Gabriel Jesus come to the fore? And what will the other Premier League clubs do as they look to bridge the gap to champions City next season?

The summer transfer window officially opened on Wednesday, June 9 and will run for 12 weeks before slamming shut once again at 11pm on Tuesday, August 31.

And so, talkSPORT.com has looked at the big transfers involving Premier League clubs that could happen this summer.

Harry Kane

It seems to be a matter of when rather than if Kane will leave Tottenham, the striker has given enough hints that he thinks it’s time to move on.

Manchester City and Manchester United appear to be the frontrunners to sign the 27-year-old.

Expect Spurs chairman Daniel Levy to not let his prized asset go without a fight though.

Erling Haaland

City and United have also been linked with Borussia Dortmund hotshot Haaland, the prolific goalscorer with 41 goals in as many appearances for his club in 2020/21.

Haaland could be available for as low as £68million in 2022 when his release clause can be activated.

Any Premier League club who has more than £100m to spend this summer should get in now before the competition really ramps up.

Kylian Mbappe

It’s the transfer Liverpool fans have obsessed about for the best part of 18 months and Mbappe to Anfield talk has been reignited.

He has just a year left on his deal at Paris Saint-Germain and any wish to leave will have been leveraged by the fact they lost the Ligue 1 title to Lille.

On his own future, the top scoring Ligue 1 man said: “What I want is to win, feel like I am somewhere where I can win, where there is a solid project around me.”

It has, though, been widely reported Real Madrid are a favoured destination for the World Cup winner if he does wish to leave.

Romelu Lukaku

With Timo Werner spurning multiple glorious chances over the last year, Chelsea are considering looking to their past as they plan for the future.

They may be champions of Europe but now the Premier League title is in their sights.

And it appears Roman Abramovich is super keen on Belgian superstar Lukaku returning to the club.

He joined Chelsea back in 2011, aged 18, but never got the chances he hoped for and successful loan spells with West Brom and Everton saw him join the Toffees permanently in 2014.

He went from strength-to-strength and earned a £75million move to Manchester United but after two seasons he was sold to Inter Milan, where he has excelled.

Last season he won Serie A but financial issues mean he could now be sold and Russian owner Abramovich may want to nab him to complete his unfinished business at Stamford Bridge.

Mohamed Salah

We shouldn’t forget Liverpool have a strict business model so a move for Mbappe may have to come at the price of selling one of their star players. Salah was the only consistently good player in 2020/21 so he’s the only one who could leave for big money.

He’s under contract until 2023 but the Egyptian has suggested his future at Anfield isn’t secure on more than one occasion.

talkSPORT’s Danny Murphy can’t see Salah or teammate Sadio Mane, who by his own admission has been below par this season, going.

“It’ll be interesting to see what happens with both Salah and Mane, if they both stay,” Murphy said. “There are rumours one of them might go but I think both will stay, especially Salah. Lots of the interviews he’s given lately have been positive, he’s saying the right things.”

Liverpool would not have finished in the top four without Salah, who netted 22 Premier League goals in 2020/21

Paul Pogba

Man United had a decent season as they finished second in the Premier League and reached the Europa League final.

But always lingering in the background are concerns about Pogba’s future at the club.

The midfielder, who has flirted with the idea of leaving a few times, has one year left on his contract so this summer would be the last chance for the Red Devils to cash in on him.

Jadon Sancho

United may lose a top midfielder in Pogba but the Red Devils look set to gain a top forward, with Sancho linked again with swapping Dortmund for Old Trafford.

United did their best to sign him last summer but were unwilling to pay the £108m asking price.

He will be available for a cheaper price this time though which could accelerate a deal, especially if he impresses at Euro 2020.

Recent reports have calmed that United have agreed personal terms with Sancho as they strive to get a deal done.
