From June to early September of each year, football clubs in Europe and the world work to strengthen their ranks by signing the required players.
The European market receives the greatest attention in view of the technical and even economic value of the players whose names are on the table of the managements of major European clubs.
The major deals began early with the Spanish Real Madrid announcing the signing of young English midfielder Judd Bellingham from Borussia Dortmund for 103 million euros, in addition to another 30 million as variables.
Bellingham’s deal will not be the only one in the current summer transfer market, whose value will exceed the 100 million euro barrier, according to the Spanish newspaper “Mundo Deportivo”.
In the following lines, we highlight 10 deals that are expected to be worth more than one billion euros, if completed during the current summer Mercato.
The Portuguese young man left the ranks of Atletico Madrid in the 2023 winter transfer market to Chelsea on loan, but his numbers (4 goals in 20 matches in all competitions) did not encourage the “blues” to sign him permanently.
With the end of the 2022-2023 season, the issue of Felix’s return to Atletico is more of a problem than a solution, with Argentine Diego Simeone remaining in his position as coach of the Roji Blancos.
Accordingly, the Atletico Madrid administration plans to permanently sell Felix from the team, but despite not needing him, it will not listen to offers of less than 100 million euros, at a time when Newcastle United seems interested in including the Portuguese player.

Moani had a very impressive season with his team, Eintracht Frankfurt, on a personal level, scoring 23 goals and providing 17 assists in 46 matches in all competitions.
Those remarkable figures put the 24-year-old French striker on the radar of many of Europe’s top clubs.
At the top of these clubs were Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester United, and in any case, his team would not accept abandoning him at a price less than 100 million euros.
Many consider him to be one of the best defenders in the world in the near future, and his Leipzig team, which won the German Cup in the season-ending season, is well aware of this fact.
Therefore, the German club will not accept less than 100 million euros in exchange for giving up the services of the 21-year-old player, especially since he is wanted by one of the strongest teams in the world today, which is Manchester City.
Rice, 24, contributed to West Ham United winning their second European title, after winning the European Conference League championship by defeating Fiorentina in the final on June 7, 2023.
Several large clubs are competing to obtain the services of the English player, whose management does not mind his departure, especially since he will revive the club’s treasury at least 110 million euros.
Rice’s name is on the table of Arsenal, runner-up in the English Premier League for the 2022-2023 season, and Bayern Munich, the German league champion, at the request of his German coach, Thomas Tuchel.
After a season and a half of his arrival at Newcastle United, the Brazilian player contributed to his team reaching the Champions League competition for the 2023-2024 season, after the “Macabis” came fourth in the English Premier League.

And “Mundo Deportivo” says that Guimarães (25 years) is required to strengthen Barcelona’s ranks in the new season, but Newcastle will not leave him for less than 110 million euros, which is a consideration that complicates the task of the Barca administration in obtaining the player.
More than ever, Tottenham Hotspur is facing major challenges in order to preserve its historic top scorer, Kane, who ended his tenth season with the “Spurs” without achieving any title.
Tottenham will not appear in any of the European competitions next season 2023-2024, which has increased the club’s suffering in the matter of preserving the 29-year-old striker.
Despite all these circumstances, the Tottenham administration headed by Daniel Levy will make it difficult for the greedy teams to benefit from Kane’s capabilities, especially Real Madrid and Manchester United, and 130 million euros will be demanded for him.
In the early days of last May, Wirtz, the jewel of Bayer Leverkusen, celebrated his 20th birthday, but it seems that his capabilities and skills far exceed his age.
The player shone under the leadership of Spanish coach Xabi Alonso in the center of the attacking midfield, and whoever wants to include him must prepare an amount of 150 million euros.
It can be said that the young Georgian is one of the most prominent players in the 2022-2023 season, not only in the Italian league, but also at the level of the five major leagues.
Kvaratskhelia transformed from an unknown player into one of the most skilled players in just one season, after showing extraordinary skills with his team, Napoli.
And he was not satisfied with that, but scored 12 goals and provided 13 assists in 34 Calcio matches only, to lead Napoli to their first Italian league title since the 1989-1990 season and the third in the history of the southern Italian city team.
Although Napoli did not intend to sell infidels (22 years old), receiving an offer of up to 150 million euros might prompt him to agree to his departure.
Another player from Napoli, but he is seen as the most successful player in the team in the season that ended, especially after leading the team to the league title and leading the scorers list.
Osimhen, 24, played with Napoli 32 matches in the Italian League, in which he scored 26 times, in addition to 5 assists.
Osimhen did not hide his desire to play in the English Premier League, but the team that wants to include him after his exceptional season must pump 160 million euros into the Napoli treasury.
The name of the French striker tops the list of players in the media in his country or in Spain and even in the world as a whole due to his permanent association with the move to Real Madrid.
According to many reports, Mbappe is still on the table of President Florentino Perez, who plans to sign the player in the summer of 2024, at the end of his current contract with Paris Saint-Germain.
But if Peres wanted to rush and join Mbappe this summer in order to replace his compatriot Karim Benzema, who joined Al Ittihad Jeddah, it would not be less than 200 million euros.
