Transfer deadline seeker: Updates on major moves in European leagues


Get ready for the craziest 24 hours on the world football transfer market: Transfer deadline day, Tuesday, August 31st. Then time runs out for clubs looking to make final reinforcements of the season before the next transfer window in the winter.

Tuesday will be the end of the summer issue of the magazine transitional period for most European leagues, including all major ones: the English Premier League, La Liga, Ligue 1, Serie A and the Bundesliga. The leagues in Russia (September 7) and Turkey (September 8) have an extended transition period until September.

The next European transition period comes in the winter and will last for a month in January 2022 (January 1-January 31). Clubs can always sign players who are out of the contract, but if the transaction requires the transfer of a player under a contract with another club, this can only happen within certain FIFA transition periods.

A brief overview of all the rumors and reports below follows the follow-up of the official moves, as announced by the clubs. Check for regular updates here.

Here are the big names we’ll be watching on Tuesday:

  • Saul Niguez (Atletico Madrid): An experienced, hard-working Atletico Madrid midfielder could be a valuable piece for a top club. Chelsea is a club associated with the move.
  • Barcelona reduces salaries: The stay in Spain seems to be close to the transfer of Ilaix Moriba to RB Leipzig. It seems that Barcelona is having a hard time moving Miralem Pjanić. Riqui Puig is another player who will need a new club if he wants to play.
  • Wing Man Utd – on the move: Reports say Welsh international Daniel James has gone to Leeds. Expect an announcement on Tuesday.
  • Callum Hudson-Odoi (Chelsea): His status is in the air, and reports indicate that it will depend on other moves. Another Chelsea player, Tino Anjorin, seems destined for Russia.
  • Eduardo Camavinga (Rennes): It is considered one of the biggest on the market, and now Real Madrid is teaming up with the Frenchman.
  • Jules Counde (Sevilla): Like Camavinga, Counde has been rumored for some time to be on the verge of a transfer. Chelsea is the obvious leading player.
  • Kylian Mbappe (PSG): The potential transfer to Real Madrid from PSG seems dead, but you never know what last-minute madness could happen.
  • James Rodriguez (Everton): Will someone make a serious move for the often injured playmaker?
  • Diego Rossi (LAFC): The next big transfer from MLS looks like the LAFC wing will be Uruguay, wanted by Turkish Fenerbahce.
  • Mexican players: Tecatito Corona is linked with a move to AC Milan, while it looks like Santiago Munoz will head to Newcastle.
