5 players that can be up for big money moves in the summer of 2018
With the January transfer business done, the teams turn their focus back to the game. The necessary reinforcements have been made in the window and they are back to work stronger than ever. The recently concluded winter transfer window was the one that would be embarked upon for years to come.
The window had clearly indicated what the 'Big Clubs' were up to and has laid the standards that could well and truly be shattered in the summer. Real Madrid are expected to break the bank in a major squad revamp along with the Manchester clubs who look to add more firepower to their squads ahead of the new Premier League season.
With the summer transfer window arriving quick, we take a look at the players who could be on for some big money moves as Europe's elite brace themselves up for a busy couple of months.
#1 David de Gea
The Manchester United goalkeeper came close to joining Real Madrid back in 2015 only to be denied by some faulty fax machine. Since then, the Spaniard has established himself as arguably the best goalkeeper in the world and "De Gea to Real Madrid" has become a talk of every summer. Reports in Spain also suggest that a £100 million deal is being struck out to lure the 27-year-old to the Spanish capital.
