A collection of deals that are reportedly very likely to be completed this summer.

Check in to Transfer Window: Done Deal Alerts

Ezequiel Garay – Benfica to Manchester United


The 26-year-old has found himself in demand this summer with both Manchester United and Chelsea sending scouts to watch him numerous times during the previous campaign.

The two clubs are believed to be close to agreeing a fee, which is rumoured to be in the region of £17million and talks between the player and the club are also thought to be at an advanced stage, with reports in Portuguese newspaper Record suggesting that Garay has already begun looking for a property in England.

Garay is quick, clever and comfortable with the ball at his feet bringing it out from defence. He is a key man for pressing whenever the side lose the ball, and is adept at making the right tackle at the right time.

He was a mainstay in the heart of Benfica's defence last season making 41 appearances across all competitions and has been touted as a replacement for Nemanja Vidic, who has seen his career skid to a halt thanks to injury over the past two years,

Moyes has been given the green light to press ahead with an official move for Garay as the Portuguese giants have lined up Lisandro Ezequiel Lopez from Argentinian club Arsenal de Sarandi, to replace him and will make their move once they have received the cash from United.

Edinson Cavani - Napoli to PSG

Cavani's future destination has already become one of the longest running transfer saga's this summer with Real Madrid, Chelsea, Manchester City, Monaco and Paris Saint Germain all said to be interested in the player and all, at one point, claiming his was on the verge of joining them.

However, it now appears that French big spenders have won the race to sign the 26-year-old as the club's sporting director, Leonardo, confirmed that he was in Rome to meet with the player's representatives.

Even Cavani's parents got in on the speculation this summer, with both claiming their son would be heading for Real Madrid or Chelsea, then Manchester City entered and things just started to get complicated.

Napoli had been hoping to keep him, and the Uruguayan international had hinted that he could stay, but it now appears that the Parisians have matched the £55 million release clause in his contract and furthermore they will hand him a contract worth a staggering £8.5 million a year.

Thiago Alcantara to Bayern Munich

It's not everyday that a hot prospect from Barcelona's youth academy becomes available, and when they do it's advisable to make a move for them as quickly as possible, as Manchester United have found out this month.

Alcantara had been all set to join the Premier League champions following a successful summer with the Spanish under-21 national side, captaining them to victory and even scoring a hat trick in the final over Italy.

However, something went wrong, the deal went too slow and it allowed his former boss Pep Guardiola to declare an interest, which was, of course, reciprocated by the player.

Guardiola described the 22-year-old as "a super, super player [who] can play in three, four or five positions. It is either Thiago or nothing." And who better to play for knowing they can get the best out of you than the very man who saw your development from hot prospect to first team cohort?

According to reports in Italy, where Bayern are holding a training camp, the Spaniard will sign a four-year deal with the European champions and the move could be wrapped up over the weekend leaving United and Moyes to kick their heels at missing out on a truly prodigious talent.

Hulk to Chelsea

Earlier this week the powerful Brazilian admitted that he had been contacted by the west London side over a possible move to the Premier League.

Chelsea are believed to have offered £35 million for the 26-year-old, but Zenit St Petersburg are thought to want a number closer to that of the £50 million they paid for him last year.

However, he is known to be unhappy in Russia and would jump at the chance to head elsewhere. "If I said there was not anything in it, I would be lying," he claimed.

His teammates are angry over the sky high wages he receives, bombs have turned up for him in the post and furthermore, his poor form in front of goal hasn't helped matters either, managing just 11 goals in 30 appearances.

Chelsea are known to be looking for a target man after the signing of Demba Ba has so far failed to work out the way many had hoped it would, and though Hulk would come at a considerable cost, a happy player with a coach like Mourinho behind him would surely produce a winning outcome.

"Zenit is a great club, but if I do go I want to move to a better place, with a better team in a better competition," he said.

Adem Ljajic to AC Milan

A number of sides have cast admiring glances over the 21-year-old serb this season, with the both AC Milan and Manchester City said to be weighing up offers.

Milan are thought to be leading the chase of the interesting parties and they have been keen to press ahead with talks as he enters the final year of his current contract in Tuscany. Fiorentina are keen for him to stay and are said to be preparing fresh terms to convince him to stay, but earlier this week they secured the signing of Bayern Munich striker Mario Gomez meaning there will be increased competition for places next season - and that will especially be the case should they manage to keep hold of Stevan Jovetic too.

The Rossoneri have tried to play the diplomatic approach in recent weeks with Galliani saying: "He could become our target, but in this moment he's a player with a contract." However, should they decide to press ahead with a transfer it would be wrapped up fairly quickly.

Wayne Rooney to Chelsea

Rooney's future has become on of the major talking points of the transfer window. Will he stay? Will he go? Who knows? But if reports are to be believed he could very well be on his way out of Old Trafford this summer with Arsenal and now Chelsea said to be keen on taking him off United's hands.

Chelsea are now the favourites and after Rooney's ever so convenient hamstring injury forcing him to return from United's training camp in Thailand we could soon see Rooney in a blue jersey.

Jose Mourinho likes him saying; "I always tell what I see. He's a player that I like very much. Being fast and direct I like him very much."

It's also widely believed that Chelsea are frantically trying to make room for him in the squad too, with either Demba Ba or Fernando Torres set to make way to accommodate the England man.

Chelsea feel that he is the kind of player who very rarely becomes available and that given there is a chance of  acquiring him, they have to make sure they are at the front of the queue.

Mourinho is thought to be keen to partner him next to Romelu Lukaku for a truly terrifying frontline indeed.

Daniele De Rossi to Chelsea

There was a time where many thought De Rossi would follow in the footsteps of his teammate and idol Francesco Totti and stay with the Serie A side for the rest of his career, installing himself within the club's own pantheon of legends for the rest of time.

The west London club could be about to launch a move for the Roma midfielder with reports of a deal being ‘all-but-agreed’. He has of course been linked with a switch to England for a long time now but it never looked as though it would realistically happen, however an £11 million deal now looks to be in place and the 29-year-old will join up with Jose Mourinho's men.

Mourinho has been a noted fan of De Rossi since his time in Italy, first attempting to sign him during his reign at Inter Milan and then again with Real Madrid, but it seems an £11m deal could be enough to lure him to Stamford Bridge.

De Rossi is expected to partner Frank Lampard in the middle should he sign for the Blues, though fellow new arrival Marco van Ginkel is expected to be nurtured through the first-team throughout the upcoming season.

Alvaro Negredo to Manchester City

Negredo's story has been another one that has threatened to drag out. At first he was linked with Spurs, then Atletico Madrid, and then, finally, he was prepared to stay put in Andalusia.

However, it now appears that he may be on his way to Manchester City in another surprise twist. The Premier League contenders are well known to be in the market for a striker since letting Carlos Tevez leave for Juventus last week, meaning just Sergio Aguero and Edin Dzeko are the side's only experienced frontmen.

City are thought to have been encouraged to go for the Spanish international after Sevilla secured the signing of Carlos Bacca from Club Brugge earlier this week and on Friday Pellegrini spoke from South Africa of City's intention to have a new signing all wrapped up over the weekend; "I don't know if anything will happen before we leave South Africa, but maybe the next day we will have fresh news."

Negredo is aslo though to be seeking a speedy resolve to his situation, and is thought to be keen on a move to a club that can offer him the chance of silverware.

Geoffrey Kondogbia to Arsenal

Arsenal's need for a good defensive midfielder has been well known all season. Since failing to replace Alex Song after his move to Barcelona their frailties in that area of the pitch have been highlighted like never before.

Since missing out on Jeremy Toulalan this week, Wenger is believed to be stepping up his interest in the 20-year-old Frenchman in a bid to buy cheaply from the cash strapped Primera Division side and develop him into a world class star in the same way he has done so many times before.

Kondogbia arrived in Spain just last summer, signing on from French side Lens, and has impressed during his short time in southern Spain. He has so far made 40 appearances and scored once.

His powerful displays and mature approach has belied his young years, and with Sevilla's economic crisis getting no better it's thought that they could pick him up for as little as £7.6 million. Arsene Wenger has money to burn this time around and won't want to risk facing the wrath of fans as he has done in previous seasons by missing out on a genuine talent.

Peter Odemwingie to Crystal Palace

The hapless Baggies striker looks as though he may finally get his wish of a move to the capital six months after his epic boobery threatened to derail what had been a fine career up until that point.

The Nigerian international had tried to force through a move to QPR during the January transfer window, and once it became clear that this was not going to happen he took to social media networking site Twitter to launch a jaw dropping tirade on the Midlands side.

It is a shame, though, that his indiscretions with Albion have overshadowed the fact that on his day he can be a devastatingly good striker. With 31 goals in 89 appearances for the club, he would be excellent value at just £1.5 million for a newly promoted side like Palace.

The 31-year-old had started to make a few tentative appearances from the substitutes bench but Baggies fans made it known that there would be no way back for him.

Palace manager Ian Holloway is now ready to offer Odwemwingie an escape route out of the West Midlands as he looks to bolster his attacking options ahead of the coming season.

Gonzalo Higuain to Arsenal

It was touch and go for a while (and still is) as to whether Higuain would even consider joining Arsenal as Italian giants Juventus looked set to sweep away the competition hoping to take him from the Santiago Bernabeau.

However, with Juve bagging Fernando Llorente from Athletico Madrid and Carlos Tevez from Manchester City the path has been cleared for Arsene Winger to make his move and bring in a goal scorer truly capable of replacing the void left by Robin Van Persie last summer.

Madrid would welcome the added cash in the coffers as they still prepare moves for Tottenham's Gareth Bale and Liverpool striker Luis Suarez, but that hasn't stopped them trying to hold up the deal with attempted 'clear the air talks', just to make Arsenal sweat a little more.

Arsenal have reportedly already agreed personal terms with the player, and a transfer fee believed to be in the region of £22 million, and now that Ancelotti is in place he can sanction the deal to go ahead.

A truly world class striker who would be more than capable of filling the boots of Robin Van Persie, Wenger won't want to miss out on this one.

Gino Peruzzi to Sunderland

The talented 21-year-old had initially rejected the chance to even talk to Paolo Di Canio's men, but has now apparently had a change of heart - deciding to now hear out the Premier LEague outfit and reports are now suggesting that he is ready to make the move.

Peruzzi, who is the cousin of former Italian international goalkeeper Angelo Peruzzi, came to the Black Cats attention in the 2012 Copa Libertadores when he effortlessly marked Neymar out of their semi-final clash with Santos.

The player himself is reported to have confirmed the offer from Sunderland but said: "My mind is set on Newell's, and then we will see."

His general manager - former Newcastle United midfielder Christian Bassedas confirmed that Peruzzi may not be at the club for much longer.

"He is the one that is closer to leaving the club," he said.

The right-back-cum-right-winger has made just a handful of appearances for the club but has already gained four international caps for Argentina and due to his Italian lineage he would be able to secure a European passport relatively easily, meaning he would not require a work permit to play in the Premier League.

Yohan Cabaye to PSG

New PSG boss Laurent Blanc, who gave the player his international debut back in 2010 has been the more keen, calling him 'an interesting player', and is reportedly desperate to add the French international to the ranks of his newly inherited squad.

Last month the highly rated 27-year-old admitted that a return home could be on the cards after French newspaper L’Equipe had suggested that he had flown into Monaco for a medical shortly after news of their interest broke, but a fortnight later and those rumours proved to be unfounded, however, they still haven’t gone away completely.

With the new season fast approaching and money no issue, a move could be on the cards very soon, which could be disastrous for the Magpies as their season quickly unraveled following an injury to their star man last season saw them plunge toward the relegation zone.

Pardew's anger at the situation caused him to issue a 'put up or shut up' warning to the French champions who are now expected to press ahead and bring him back home as they look to make an improved challenge for the Champions League alongside a comprehensive defence of their Ligue 1 title.

Keisuke Honda to AC Milan

AC Milan vice-president Adriano Gallaini has confirmed that the club are hoping to sign CSKA Moscow midfielder Keisuke Honda, but will wait until January to do so.

However, the Japanese international has entered the final six months of his contract with the Russian side, meaning he is now free to talk with other club's who may be interested in bringing him on board.

Everton and Liverpool had been thought to be keeping an eye on his situation, but CSKA, who have said they would let the 27-year-old go now should a reasonable offer come their way, have stated that the ball is firmly in Milan's court if they want to make an approach.

But Galliani has insisted that the Rossoneri are happy to wait until the winter to bring him to the San Siro.

Milan are hoping to add more options to their attack with Robinho and Kevin Prince-Boateng likely to move on themselves this summer, though the former has just seen his return to Santos break down.

So though he may not actually be leaving Moscow this summer, he could secure the move over the next couple of weeks.

Kevin Strootman to Manchester United or Roma

Strootman has made his mind up to leave PSV Eindhoven this summer following the sales of Erik Pieters and Jeremain Lens and has the rather difficult choice to make between Manchester United and Roma.

United have been long time admirers, and much like Ezequiel Garay, David Moyes is believed to be interested in following up on Sir Alex Ferguson's initial interest in the man who has been described as the 'new Roy Keane'.

However, Italian giants Roma have also thrown their hat into the ring as they look to replace the talismanic Daniele De Rossi who now looks as though he is on the way to Chelsea.

But recent developments have shown that the Serie A side have failed to meet PSV's asking price and now the Dutch international has said that he will now have to think about where he wants to end up.

United are believed to be his favoured choice, but they have yet to make a formal offer as they look to continue to bed David Moyes into the job ahead of the new season.

There are reported to be more clubs interested in his signature, some have even made offers, but he has his heart set on a move to one of the two aforementioned clubs and will now wait to see how events unfold.

Scott Sinclair to Newcastle United

Some players make some terrible decisions in their careers. Sinclair had it all going for him at Swansea, and if he'd stayed he would now be boasting a Capital One Cup winners medal as well as being able to look forward to an exciting Europa League campaign next season.

However, the desire to make the jump too soon has bit him on the backside and he has managed just a handful of appearances in a City shirt and a damaged reputation.

However, that's not stopped the likes of Everton and Newcastle, the latter especially, in making him a summer target to end his Etihad hell.

Newcastle's transfer team of Alan Pardew, Joe Kinnear and Graham Carr are all said to be moving away from the French influence of the January transfer window in favour of a more British approach after some well documented problems within the club's dressing room towards the tail end of last season.

With speculation surrounding the future of Hatem Ben Arfa, Pardew has identified Sinclair as the ideal replacement and may even be able to snare him on a cut price deal.

Fabio Quagliarella to Norwich City

Delia Smith must have sold quite a few cakes over the recent weeks to bring in all of the star names that Norwich have recently bought.

Ricky Van Wolfswinkel, Nathan Redmond and Martin Olsson have already joined, whilst PSV forward Ola Toivonen and Leroy Fer look set to quickly follow suit - there's a very good chance the Norwich could have a squad capable of challenging for a Europa League spot next season.

However, the Canaries have recently lost big frontman Grant Holt to Championship side Wigan Athletic and are now eyeing up the Italian international Fabio Quagliarella as a replacement.

Juventus currently have six strikers on their books, including the 30-year-old, though his nine goals in last season's Scudetto winning campaign aren't thought to be enough to save him from the axe after the recent acquisition of Carlos Tevez from Manchester City.

Though he may never have been particularly prolific for the Old Lady, he does boast an impressive career record of 116 goals in 373 appearances that has spanned 14 years.

According to sources, talks over Quagliarella between the two clubs are at an advanced stage, with a fee of around £7.5m thought to have been agreed.

Bruma to Chelsea

The 18-year-old winger has caught the eye of some of Europe's top clubs having broken into Sporting's first team this season.

Chelsea attempted to bring Bruma to West London last year but the Lisbon giants managed to tie him down with a new deal.

However, Bruma's lawyer, Bebiano Gomes, says his deal expired at the end of last month, but the club have insisted there was a clause that triggered an automatic renewal, prompting an awkward court case to hold up any move.

Bayern are already believed to have made a £4 million bid to take Bruma to the Bundesliga, a £2 million rise on the bid Chelsea had previously tabled.

Bruma's older brother, Buomesca, is already on the books at Fulham so Chelsea could have the upper hand as the two could be reunited in the English capital.

Armindo Tué Na Bangna, as his full name reads, has made eight appearances for the first team, scoring once, but he's been heavily involved in the segunda team where he's scored six times in 25 appearances.

Tom Huddlestone to Sunderland

Huddlestone has been the epitome of a player perennially on the verge of a move away from White Heart Lane. He's highly rated, yet can never seen to get a steady run of games and as an England international the time may be right for him to finally take that leap and head somewhere that will be able to give him what he needs.

He has now been given permission to speak with the Black Cats ahead of a £5 million move and will make a refreshing change from Paolo Di Canio's recent surge of signing little known players from abroad.

Spurs are keen to cash in on the 26-year-old in order to raise funds for future transfers and had even offered him to Aston Villa in a part exchange deal to bring Christian Benteke to the club, but Villa rejected the approach.

Blessed with a wide range of passing and a thunderous shot - he would be an asset to any side, unfortunately for him, and to a lesser extent Spurs too, they are able to attract a calibre of player that you could say is a rung or two higher on the chart than the former Forest man.

Darren Bent to Newcastle United

The Aston Villa striker has had a funny old season in the West Midlands. After being named as captain and starting the campaign with a steady run of games he soon found himself out of the side as they adapted to a style of play that just didn't suit him - the red hot form of Christian Benteke didn't help his cause either.

He has been told that he is free to find a new club by Paul Lambert the Scott's counterpart at St James' Park has admitted that he has him in his sights.

"Both of those players are on our list. I make no bones about that," he said.

Bent would represent great value for the £6 million price he's been quoted. At just 29-year-old he still has a lot to offer a top flight with a scoring record of 103 goals in 245 Premier League appearances, and furthermore, with it being a World Cup year he'll want to prove that he still has something to offer Roy Hodgson's men.

Having played for Newcastle's rivals, Sunderland, it remains to be seen how the fans would take to him, but if he hits the back of the net as regularly  as everybody knows he can then they'll surely forgive his past allegiances.
