6 outrageous transfer rumours currently doing the rounds

Alvaro Morata

Although Euro 2024 is dominating the headlines at the moment, the transfer rumour mill is still chugging along in the background.

And, as expected, the rumour mill is conjuring up some utterly ridiculous stories.

From the biggest clubs in world being linked to Hull City players, to world class forwards being linked with clubs with zero pounds and zero pence in the bank, we’ve every type of lunacy thus far this month.

Here’s our picks for the most outrageous rumours of the 2024 summer transfer window so far:

The rumour

According to Turkish website Sabah, Manchester United are interested in activating a €12m release clause to sign Alvaro Morata from Atletico Madrid this summer.

Our take

A Turkish outlet linking a La Liga player with a Premier League club always screams ‘this is never happening in a million, billion, trillion years’.

However while this deal does scream that too, it actually does make a bit of sense.

For United, Morata is in that sweet spot of being good enough to contribute when called upon, but also not being good enough or young enough to take too much of Rasmus Hojlund’s minutes up top. He’s also reportedly quite affordable too.

United could do a lot worse.

The Telegraph are reporting that Bayern Munich are set to step up their efforts to sign Everton’s Amadou Onana this summer.

Our take

There are two big questions surrounding this rumoured deal:

  1. Is Onana a viable alternative to Joao Palhinha?
  2. Is Onana even good enough to play for Bayern Munich?

The answer to both right now is probably ‘no’. The towering midfielder is a different type of player to Palhinha, who sweeps up play effectively in front of the defence, and he’s rarely shown that he can get to the next level required to play for a top club like Bayern.

It would be quite the step up from playing at Everton.

The rumour

According to the Daily Mail, Chelsea are ready to break their own £115m Premier League record fee in order to poach Alexander Isak from Newcastle United.

Our take

In a pre-PSR world, this may have made a semblance of sense.

But we don’t live in a pre-PSR world, we live in the real world.

In the real world Chelsea are currently focused on selling players in order to not earn themselves a points deduction ahead of the 2024/25 season.

This is not a deal that’ll…
