Transfer Rater: Gareth Bale to Man United, Antoine Griezmann to Real
Things change in the blink of an eye in football. The Football Whispers Index takes the latest transfer rumours and gives them a score out of five; the higher the score, the more realistic and reliable the whisper.
Here are today's top five emerging whispers for the summer. And keep an eye on Transfer Talk for all the latest gossip.
Gareth Bale to Manchester United
According to Spanish football expert Graham Hunter, there is a real possibility the 27-year-old Welshman is heading back to the Premier League this summer, with United the firm favourites to land him. The former Spurs winger only signed a new deal at the Bernabeu last October but after an injury-ravaged season, he has been linked with an exit.
Antoine Griezmann to Real Madrid
Spanish news outlet Don Balon claim Real Madrid will stun neighbours Atletico with a big money move for Griezmann if Bale makes a move to United. The 26-year-old has a release clause set around the £86 million mark, which Zinedine Zidane will have to meet if he's going to steal his compatriot away. Griezmann was a one-time Chelsea transfer target but could now stay in La Liga.
Alexandre Lacazette to Arsenal
Lyon chairman Jean-Michel Aulas has indicated star striker Lacazette will be allowed to leave the club this summer: "If a club of his heart is able to match our demands -- as Barcelona did last season for Samuel Umtiti -- then things will go well," he said. Lacazette , 25, is said to be a prime transfer target for Arsenal with the Gunners linked with a move for him over the past few seasons.
Dele Alli to Real Madrid
Diario Gol believe Real Madrid are set for a squad overhaul this summer despite being just three wins away from a La Liga and Champions League double. The club have drawn up a list of potential arrivals and Alli is on it.
Alexis Sanchez to Paris Saint-Germain
Paris Saint-Germain forward Edinson Cavani has welcomed a move for Alexis Sanchez. Speaking to Canal+ the Uruguayan said: "If they come, they are welcome." Sanchez netted a brace against Sunderland on Tuesday night to keep the Gunners in the hunt for a Champions League place. His deal expires in the summer of 2018 and he's been linked with Manchester City, Chelsea and Bayern Munich.
