With the summer transfer window looming large on the horizon, the rumour mill is in overdrive.    

Moreover, considering several reports over the past few weeks, some deals are certain to occur when the transfer period commences.

Hence, International Business Times presents you with three signings that are likely to happen before the start of the next season.

Ezequiel Garay- Benfica to Manchester United

Manchester United have been heavily linked with a move for former Real Madrid defender Ezequiel Garay and if the reports are to be believed, the Red Devils might have already tied up a deal for the 26-year-old.

 Even though United have been rock-solid at the back recently, both Nemanja Vidic and Rio Ferdinand find themselves at the wrong side of 30.

Garay’s arrival will bring about more structure to the champions-elect’s backline and one can surely expect Fergie to make a concrete swoop for the Argentine this summer. 

 

Radamel Falcao- Atletico Madrid to Chelsea/Manchester City

 Radamel Falcao is the most sought-after striker in the world right now and in all fairness, will leave his current club Atletico Madrid for either of Manchester City or Chelsea in a few months time.

Stamford Bridge presently looks as the probable destination as the Blues are desperate to ship off the struggling Fernando Torres and replace the latter with Falcao, while City already have three reliable strikers among their ranks.

As we all are aware of, Falcao won’t come cheap and Roman Abramovich could be need to spend up to £40 million to acquire the services of the 27-year-old.

Leandro Damiao to Tottenham Hotspur

A bold take, but with Internacional director stating that the striker is “most likely” to leave his current team after this term, Tottenham Hotspur could be interested in launching a bid for Leandro Damiao.

Spurs are desperate to add more depth and creativity to their striking department and Damiao is a long-term target of Andre Villas-Boas.

However, it will be interesting to see whether Spurs could meet the transfer demand for the Brazil international, which could be as high as £25 million.
