Predicting the Next 7 Transfers in the Summer Window
While we're not in the business of fortune-telling at Bleacher Report, we're taking a crack at predicting some of the upcoming transfers in world football.
The transfer market can be unpredictable, but that's what makes it fun.
Radamel Falcao's move to Monaco certainly stands out as the surprise of the summer—you can see the details here, thanks to BBC Sport—while The Guardian reports that Jesus Navas is now set to join Manchester City.
Those two are the biggest moves of summer window so far, but there will be plenty more to come.
Using them as the benchmark, we're looking mainly at the big-name transfers that are likely to occur.
Let's take a look at which ones could be next.
Andre Schurrle to Chelsea
Recent news from Sky Sports suggests there may be a problem, though, as Borussia Dortmund is interested in signing De Bruyne.
Still, it's likely that the move will get pushed through as Chelsea has the financial might to compensate Leverkusen if they don't get De Bruyne.
Chelsea need more depth in the attacking third and would do well to sign the versatile German youngster.
Robert Lewandowski to Bayern Munich
Signing Robert Lewandowski as a striker certainly makes sense for Bayern Munich, considering Pep Guardiola is set to take charge next season.
The Polish striker is flexible enough to fit into Guardiola's preferred style of play, unlike current forwards Mario Mandzukic and Mario Gomez.
In an article by Sports Illustrated, Lewandowki's agent gave a strong indication that his client's future lies with Bayern Munich.
Luis Suarez to Real Madrid
Suarez has had a turbulent time in England since touching down and may find the lifestyle as well as the style of play more to his liking in Spain.
According to The Mirror, Real Madrid are said to be willing to offer him £140,000 per week to join the side.
Barcelona have already made their marquee signing for the summer with Neymar, and now Real Madrid need to make one of their own.
Luis Suarez would certainly fit the bill where that's concerned, especially if The Guardian's article stating that Suarez will cost up to £50 million is accurate.
Gonzalo Higuain to Juventus
Gonzalo Higuain has stated his intention to leave Real Madrid this summer, as reported by Goal.com, and there will be no shortage of suitors.
Sports Illustrated revealed that the Argentine forward is aware of interest from Juventus, and the Italian giants look to be front-runners for his signature.
With Fernando Llorente already set to join, Juventus' capture of Higuain would put them in prime position to continue dominating Italy and make a major push in Europe.
Juventus have little weakness elsewhere in the squad, and unless a key player is tempted to move, they will put quite a lot into signing Higuain.
Clement Grenier to Arsenal
The biggest indication that Clement Grenier will head to Arsenal came from the player himself, according to Sky Sports.
However, according to The Mirror, Arsene Wenger has also expressed interest in signing the creative player.
The Lyon midfielder has become an integral part of his side in the last few seasons, displacing former Arsenal target Yoann Gourcuff in the process.
Grenier may not necessarily fill a need for Arsenal, but he could also be seen as a signing for the future, considering the age of players like Tomas Rosicky and Mikel Arteta.
Leandro Damiao to Tottenham
Leandro Damiao has long been linked with a move to Tottenham, and Sky Sports reported in May that there were talks between current club Internacional and the English side.
This summer is a good time for the saga to end.
Tottenham needs a forward who can have a major impact, as well as help Gareth Bale, and the next step in Damiao's career would be a move to Europe.
Comments from his agent, reported by Sky Sports, suggest Damiao would certainly consider a move to Spurs.
Those associated with Tottenham will hope that fellow Brazilian and current Tottenham player Sandro can convince his compatriot to join the club.
Christian Eriksen to Borussia Dortmund
With Mario Gotze gone, Borussia Dortmund needs to add creativity, and Christian Eriksen is the right man for the job.
The German club has been touted as front-runners for his signature by talkSPORT, with Liverpool and Manchester United also interested.
ESPN FC reported that there have been talks between Dortmund and Ajax concerning the future of the Danish attacking midfielder.
Eriksen needs to make a move at this time in his career, and Dortmund presents a great opportunity. A deal would be good for both sides.
