The best starting XI of players set for big money moves this summer.
Fantasy XI’s are always being banded around, and none more so than during the transfer window. So with that in mind, we have created the best starting XI comprised of players set for big money transfers before the end of the window.
GK: Iker Casillas – Real Madrid
The Spanish World Cup winner has seen his fortunes drop dramatically over the past 18 months, and the time is probably now right for him to move on. Still capable of performing miracles despite his poor showing at the World Cup, he would add an added authority to both Arsenal and Liverpool’s defences after they were both tipped with making a move for him.
RB: Javier Manquillo – Atletico Madrid
The highly-rated full-back may only have made a handful of appearances during Atletico’s title winning campaign but that hasn’t stopped Liverpool from stepping up their interests in signing him. Rumour has it that the club are on the verge of bringing him to Anfield on a two-year deal.
CB: Mats Hummels – Borussia Dortmund
The imposing German centre-back is being eye from everywhere between Manchester to Barcelona as a host of clubs look to compound Borussia’s misery and test their resolve for his signature. However, now that he is a World Cup winner, interested parties can expect to add another zero onto the end of his fee.
CB: Eliaquim Mangala – FC Porto
The young defender has been on the radar of several clubs over the past few months and at various points has supposedly been en route to the likes of Chelsea, Manchester United and Manchester City. It now appears that City have won the race, and a £32m deal to bring him to the Etihad could be completed as soon as this week.
LB: Alberto Moreno – Sevilla
Moreno was in electric form for an overachieving Sevilla side last term, helping them to Europa League success and earning himself a call up to Spain’s World Cup squad in the process. Liverpool have reportedly been on the verge of signing him up since the window opened, and after some difficulties it looks as though he will be making his way to Merseyside very soon indeed.
