A look back at the summer transfer window so far:

Although Harry Maguire may not have felt much love during the previous season, he has recently. He and his longtime partner Fern wed in a grandiose ceremony at a French chateau this past weekend, and now the couple has left for their honeymoon amid rumors that Barcelona wants to sign him.

Yes, the huge center-back is something the Catalan club wants as part of any deal for Frenkie de Jong, according to hot air pouring across from Spain to England. But because Manchester United adores their clumsy meme so much, they’ve told Xavi, the manager of Barça, to stay away from their man. Given everything, De Jong, Barça’s midfield metronome, will cost United the entire £69 million, and the team is still in the driver’s seat to sign him. Phil Jones is not currently listed as being on Xavi’s wishlist, according to reports.

Following the departures of Antonio Rüdiger and Andreas Christensen to Real Madrid and Barcelona, respectively, Thomas Tuchel desperately needs to replace the enormous vacuum in the center of his Chelsea defense. By trading Matthijs de Ligt for Timo Werner and £38 million to Juventus, he intends to accomplish this. They might even attempt to include Christian Pulisic as well. The Dutchman’s contract has a £103 million release clause, but it’s believed the Serie A club would prefer a cash-only trade. Petr Cech, the technical director at Chelsea, would undoubtedly advise against such a costly purchase, but since he is leaving Stamford Bridge, Todd Boehly, the new owner, will have the final word.

West Ham has spread like a contagious rash during this summer’s transfer window. They seek to add the swift Villarreal winger Arnaut Danjuma and Chelsea’s Proper No. 9 Armando Broja for about £30 million each, in addition to defender Nayef Aguerd. Additionally, they have extended a contract offer to Jesse Lingard, a free agent and top goal-celebrating player who enjoyed his time on loan at the London Stadium last year. Additionally, David Moyes will spend about £10 million for Alphonse Areola, a goalie they borrowed from PSG last year.

In order to strengthen Liverpool’s midfield, Jürgen Klopp is content to wait a season. However, when the time comes, he will use his connections at Borussia Dortmund to negotiate a trade for Jude Bellingham. The club believes that next summer, rather than this summer, the Germans will be more receptive to a deal.

Bayern Munich have told Barcelona that they will have to stump up £52m for Robert Lewandowski, which seems a fair old chunk of cash for a 33-year-old striker, but we’d back him to score at least 52 goals in La Liga next season so maybe it is good value after all.

Patrick Vieira knows what Crystal Palace need to improve further next season, a player just like him, which is why he’s keen to cut a deal with Lens for box-to-box Mali midfielder Cheick Doucouré, who will cost them somewhere between £15m to £20m.

Nottingham Forest has made a £15 million offer to Liverpool in an effort to sign right-back Neco Williams. Now that they have finally acquired Gabriel Jesus, Arsenal will intensify their efforts to acquire Raphinha from Leeds. Sven Botman, a center back, is on his way to Newcastle to finalize a £35 million transfer from Lille. Djed Spence, a fullback for Middlesbrough, has asked to quit the team and Tottenham are the favorites to sign him.
