Get ready for the craziest 24 hours in the global football transfer market: transfer deadline day, Tuesday, August 31. That’s when the time expires for clubs looking to bring in the final reinforcements for the season ahead of the next winter transfer window.
Tuesday will mark the end of the summer transfer window for the majority of European leagues, including all the major ones: English Premier League, La Liga, Ligue 1, Serie A and Bundesliga. The leagues in Russia (September 7) and Turkey (September 8) have an extended transfer window until September.
The next European transfer window will take place in winter and will last for one month in January 2022 (January 1-January 31). Clubs can still sign players without a contract, but if a transaction requires the transfer of a player under contract with another club, this can only happen in transfer windows designated by FIFA.
A recap of all rumors and reports is followed below by official movement tracking as announced by clubs. Here are the big names we’ll be watching for Tuesday:
- Saul Niguez (Atletico Madrid): The experienced and hardworking Atletico Madrid midfielder could be a valuable piece for a top club. Chelsea are the club linked with a move.
- Barcelona lose wages: Staying in Spain, Ilaix Moriba’s supposed move to RB Leipzig appears to be near. Looks like Barcelona are struggling to move Miralem Pjanic. Riqui Puig is another player who will need a new club if he wants playing time.
- Man Utd winger on the move: Reports say Welsh international Daniel James is heading to Leeds. Expect an announcement on Tuesday.
- Callum Hudson-Odoi (Chelsea): His status is on hold and reports say it will depend on other moves. Another Chelsea player, Tino Anjorin, appears destined for Russia.
- Eduardo Camavinga (Rennes): He is considered one of the biggest in the market and now Real Madrid are linked with the Frenchman.
- Jules Coundé (Seville): Like Camavinga, rumor has it that Coundé has been on the verge of a move for some time. Chelsea are the apparent favorite.
- Kylian Mbappé (PSG): It looks like a potential transfer from PSG to Real Madrid is dead, but you never know what last-minute madness could play out.
- James Rodriguez (Everton): Will anyone make a serious gesture for the often injured playmaker?
- Diego Rossi (LAFC): MLS ‘next big transfer looks to be the Uruguayan LAFC winger, wanted by Turkish side Fenerbahce.
- Mexican players: Tecatito Corona has been linked with a move to AC Milan, while Santiago Munoz appears to be heading to Newcastle.
