This summers Euros have been postponed until 2021 the upcoming transfer window could be effected in terms of who goes where!
Summer tournaments are usually a fantastic opportunity for players to get big moves to new clubs. It is a chance for them to showcase their talents to the rest of the world.
In the 2018 World Cup, players such as Harry Maguire, Benjamin Pavard and Lucas Hernandez put themselves in the shop window for big money moves. This year European Championship has been postponed, meaning some players may miss out.
However, you can guarantee that big money signings will still be made, but who will end up where?
This year’s Euro’s could have been key for the departure of Paul Pogba. He has been linked with a move away from Old Trafford for the past couple of season. After having played just eight games this season, a good Euro’s would have been very useful for him.
Real Madrid are the favourites to sign him at 7/4. He would help them in their rebuilding stage to get back to the best team in the world. A return to his old club Juventus is priced at 4/1. Pogba played his best football there so it could be a good move. Finally is PSG at 5/1. They could afford him and his wages, which most clubs probably can’t. It would also be the first time he played for a club from his country.
Another player who would have been helped by this summers Euro’s is Jadon Sancho. The English winger is loving his time at Dortmund after having left City at the age of 17. However, he is now apparently wanting a return back to England. If he was able to show how good he was against the best defenders in the world at the Euro’s, then this would have helped him in returning to England.
A move back to Manchester looks the most likely, but to Man United instead. At 8/11, they are the favourites and need a right-sided to add to their attack. Chelsea are said to be interested in Sancho at 7/2. They haven’t been able to sign anyone due to a transfer ban and have Pedro and Willian at the end of their contract. Liverpool are priced at 6/1, which would be a surprising move. Sancho is starting at Dortmund and surely a move to Liverpool would see him on the bench whilst Salah is still there.
After injuring himself in the Community Shield, Sane hasn’t featured at all since for City. He was close to leaving the club last summer but Pep wanted him to stay. At City, he is one of their brightest young players, but with such a good squad it’s hard to consistently start. He would start for most clubs in Europe and a move away would increase playing time. The Euro’s would have been good to put him back in the minds of Europe’s biggest clubs.
Bayern is the most likely destination for Sane if he were to leave City. The club who tried to get him last season are priced at 5/6. Being German, a move to Bayern could be very attractive for him. They have struggled to replace Robben and Ribery and Sane could be that man. 15/2 is Real Madrid. This would be a surprising move for him but Real always spend big money in the summer.
