There is a lot of uncertainty surrounding the 2020 soccer summer transfer window. With the coronavirus outbreak currently affecting all soccer leagues around the world, no one is sure when the competitions will return or when the transfer window will open up.

With that being said, there will surely be some transfer window for clubs and players to make changes this summer, and we expect that plenty of big names will be on the move.

Let’s take a look at the three biggest transfers that we expect to happen this summer in the world of soccer.

Lautaro Martinez to FC Barcelona

FC Barcelona is looking for a striker heading into the 2020-21 season, with the health and productivity of long-time striker Luis Suarez being a major question.

Rumors have recently linked the Catalan club to the young Inter Milan striker, and we think they’ll empty their pockets to acquire the Argentinian this summer. Martinez has scored 16 goals in 31 games for Inter Milan this season at the ripe age of 22. He would be the perfect addition to Quique Setien’s Barcelona and serve as a goal-scoring machine.

Jadon Sancho to Manchester United

Borussia Dortmund has already begun to assume that their biggest star will leave for a big transfer fee this summer. Sancho, the 20-year-old right-winger who is arguably the game’s best young player, is being sought by many teams.

After a few rough seasons and with the amount of money that they have, this would be the perfect opportunity for Manchester United to add the premier player that they are lacking. He certainly won’t be cheap, but 17 goals and 19 assists at the age of 20 speak to Sancho’s enormous talent. It would be money well-spent.

Kylian Mbappe to Real Madrid

Kylian Mbappe’s time in the French capital might be running out, and Real Madrid looks like a top candidate to sign the young French forward. Mbappe has long been a favorite of French coach Zinedine Zidane and Real Madrid’s president Florentino Perez, and they could launch an all-out attack to sign the 21-year-old this summer.

30 goals, 17 assists, and 33 games tell all you need to know about the stunning French forward. With players like Luka Jovic and Mariano Diaz failing to impress, and Karim Benzeman getting up there in age, Mbappe would be a player that could take Real Madrid back to competing for Champions League titles.
