The summer transfer window may be some time away, but the European football scene is abuzz with rumors, potential deals, and transfer gossip. Here’s the latest scoop on the transfer front:

Antony’s Future at Old Trafford in Doubt?

Manchester United is reportedly considering offloading winger Antony during the upcoming summer transfer window. The Brazilian, who arrived at Old Trafford from Ajax Amsterdam in 2022 for £85 million, has struggled to make an impact in the Premier League, tallying just five goals and three assists in 52 appearances. While no concrete offers have been received for Antony, Crystal Palace’s Michael Olise is rumored to be a potential replacement. United is believed to be leading the race for Olise, whose release clause worth £50-60 million becomes active at the end of the season.

More recent rumours:

  • Liverpool is eyeing Chelsea defender Levi Colwill as a potential summer signing, according to reports. With Joel Matip set to depart, Colwill is reportedly on the Reds’ shortlist for defensive reinforcements. Eintracht Frankfurt’s Willian Pacho is also under consideration.
  • Atalanta midfielder Teun Koopmeiners reportedly favors a move to Juventus over Liverpool. The Dutch midfielder, a key player for Atalanta, has attracted interest from both clubs, but Juventus seems to be ahead in the race for his signature.
