5 major exchanges that could still happen this mid year with Sanchez, Coutinho and Mbappe in demand

It has been another ground-breaking transfer window – and not just in England.

Plenty of money has been spent with Neymar stealing the show with his world-record switch to PSG.

The two Manchester clubs have splashed the cash again, with United forking out a huge sum to land Romelu Lukaku.

And with two weeks left of the window, there should be plenty more to come.

But what deals could still go through before September 1?

1. Alexis Sanchez to Manchester City

The story that has rumbled on all summer – but will Alexis Sanchez be at Arsenal when the window closes.

The Chilean is entering the final year of his contract and Arsène Wenger has not changed his stance that Sanchez will not be sold.

Sanchez still hasn’t played for Arsenal in this new season after returning late back to pre-season after a Confederations Cup run with Chile. He then contracted a flu so was unable to train and then was ruled out for a minimum of two weeks with a strange abdominal injury.


Manchester City are ready to make a £50m bid before the season ends – but can Arsenal let him go?

Or will they risk letting him go on a free?

2. Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona

Brazilian star Coutinho looks destined to join the Catalan giants after handing in a transfer request on the eve of Liverpool’s Premier League opener at Watford.

Liverpool have turned down two bids from Barcelona and issued a statement insisting the player wouldn’t depart on any terms.

But Coutinho wants the move and Liverpool may have little choice but to let him go.

3. Virgil van Dijk to Liverpool

Could Liverpool go back in for Southampton defender Van Dijk?

Earlier this summer, Liverpool retracted any interest and issued an apology for the approaches they made for the Dutch centre back.

Van Dijk has handed in a transfer request and been left to train with the youth team, and Liverpool’s defensive struggles against Watford seemingly open the door for a big move for Van Dijk.

Don’t rule out Chelsea swooping in either as Conte has expressed his desire to add to an already stretched squad.

4. Ousmane Dembele to Barcelona

Another transfer saga involving the Catalan club.

The French winger joined Borussia Dortmund from Rennes last summer but could cost as much as €150m.

Dembele has been suspended by Dortmund for missing training and wants to join Barca, who have identified him as a replacement for Neymar.

This one should get over the line.

5. Kylian Mbappe to PSG

The French wonderkid who took the world by storm with his sensational performances for Monaco last term.

French media are insistent the teenager has chosen PSG as his next destination, and the subsequent fact that Mbappe was an unused substitute in Monaco’s 4-1 win at Dijon only adds fuel to the fire.

Real Madrid were heavily linked earlier in the summer but that one now seems unlikely with PSG ready to put the finishing touches to a stunning piece of business.
