Deadline day always brings with it a number of surprising last-minute deals that may or may not go through but there is already plenty of speculation that has been doing the rounds for days or even weeks and, in some cases, months.
Cristiano Ronaldo’s headline-grabbing return to Manchester United could mean more than one player heads for the exit door at Old Trafford.
While the majority of Leeds United’s business has been done early in the window, as they prefer to do, could there be a last-gasp deal to be had?
In particular, could Marcelo Bielsa be set to finally complete a deal nearly 1,000 days in the making after missing out on the same player in the last seconds of January 2019’s transfer deadline day?
Elsewhere, Liverpool may yet bolster their squad by swooping for a player from a Premier League rival. For Everton, Rafa Benitez looks set to be active in the last few hours of the window as he bids to bolster his squad and build on an impressive start to the season.
The London clubs, particularly West Ham, could be busy – there looks to be work to do at Arsenal, also – and at the bottom end of the market there may yet be deals to be done at Burnley and Brighton.
A few big names could be set to depart the Premier League and further their careers elsewhere in Europe. It certainly promises to be a busy time.
