The summer transfer window is here, offering players the opportunity to start fresh and reignite their careers.

This window is no different, with several players desperately seeking a change. Here are 11 such players who need a move this summer.

Harry Maguire: Time to Move On

Manchester United fans have long called for Harry Maguire’s departure. Despite missing out on a place for England due to injury, many feel he wouldn’t have been selected anyway. With Varane’s injury giving Maguire more playtime, fans have seen enough and want him gone. A £30m bid from West Ham was accepted last season, making it likely the Englishman will leave soon.

Jadon Sancho: Seeking Redemption

Jadon Sancho spent the latter half of last season on loan at Borussia Dortmund, where he helped lead them to the Champions League final. Back at United, he refused to apologize to manager Ten Hag and is excluded from first-team affairs. A permanent move seems necessary for him to regain his form and happiness, with Dortmund being a likely destination.

Aaron Ramsdale: In Need of Game Time

Arsenal replaced Aaron Ramsdale with David Raya last season, leaving Ramsdale with only six league appearances compared to 38 the previous season. To avoid his past heroics being forgotten, he must consider a move. Newcastle and Juventus are reportedly interested, providing him a chance to revive his career.

Emile Smith Rowe: The Forgotten Talent

Emile Smith Rowe was once Arsenal’s go-to player in the number 10 position but has since fallen out of favor due to the emergence of Odegaard and Saka. With few appearances even when fit, Arsenal has placed a £25 million price tag on him. Crystal Palace is interested, and a move there might be what he needs to kickstart his career.

Romelu Lukaku: The Forgotten Striker

Romelu Lukaku has been on loan at Inter Milan and Roma since flopping at Chelsea in 2021. With Chelsea placing a £38 million fee on him, his options are limited. AC Milan is interested in another loan, but Lukaku needs a permanent move to rebuild his career before it’s too late.

Victor Osimhen: Time to Shine

Victor Osimhen has made a name for himself at Napoli but needs to capitalize on his success. With Napoli struggling financially, they are looking to sell him. Osimhen needs to move to a bigger club to rival the likes of Kane and Haaland and take his career to the next level.

Alphonso Davies: A Move to Madrid?

Alphonso Davies has been a target for Real Madrid since last summer, and the Bavarians are hopeful he will sign a new deal. However, Bayern risks losing him for free next summer. Davies should consider moving to Real Madrid to become a legend at the world’s best club.

João Cancelo: Barcelona Bound?

João Cancelo, after falling out with Guardiola, was loaned to Bayern Munich and Barcelona. He excelled at Barcelona and is vocal about wanting to return. With Hansi Flick reportedly interested, Cancelo needs a move to a team where he can make a significant impact.

João Felix: Reviving His Career

João Felix, after unsuccessful spells at Atletico Madrid and Chelsea, found better form at Barcelona with 16 goal contributions. A permanent move to Barcelona could revive his career. Benfica is also interested, but Barcelona seems the likelier destination.

Donny Van De Beek: A Fresh Start Needed

Donny Van De Beek struggled for game time on loan at Eintracht Frankfurt. His career has declined since joining United from Ajax in 2020, playing just 62 times in almost four years. With no future at United, Van De Beek needs a move to reignite his career.

Mason Greenwood: A Fresh Start Away from England

Despite the charges against him being dropped, Manchester United decided to part ways with Mason Greenwood. He spent last season on loan at Getafe, attracting interest from Juventus and Lazio. A move away from English media and fans is necessary for Greenwood to start fresh. United reportedly seeks €40m but may accept less.
