Barnett’s transfer plans – Bale, Grealish and “best young player in the world”

Jonathan Barnett has some huge plans in the summer with his big-name players under his agentship set for transfer moves.

Gareth Bale’s situation at Real Madrid remains unclear while Jack Grealish and Eduardo Camavinga are eyeing the next steps in their careers.

With many clubs looking to splash the cash after a Covid-strapped campaign, Barnett could be a very busy man over the next couple of months.

His company ICM Stellar Sports is ranked the biggest in football, ahead of the likes of Mino Raiola and Jorge Mendes.

“You’ve got to understand,” the 71-year-old said. “I like Mino as a person. But he’s very envious. He’s very jealous because I told him who’s No 1 in the world and he hasn’t been the same since.”

But what are his plans this summer? And where will his clientele end up this year?

Gareth Bale

Gareth Bale’s future is unclear

Perhaps the most doubtful of the lot is Bale, who will return to Real Madrid after his loan spell at Tottenham.

Los Blancos would be happy to sell the Welshman but there are not many teams who are willing to match his £600,000-a-week wages.

Spurs will not be making his loan a permanent one while Mirror Sport have ranked the 31-year-old’s next move in detail here.

Jack Grealish

Manchester City are interested in Jack Grealish

While Aston Villa are determined to keep hold of their talismanic captain, Manchester City’s spending power might get them over the line.

Pep Guardiola is a huge fan of Grealish while the prospect of the England international being added to their already-sumptuous attack is one that should strike fear into their Premier League rivals.

Barnett would no doubt earn a pretty penny from any potential transfer with the bids being mooted in the £100m area.

Eduardo Camavinga

Manchester United are interested in signing Camavinga and will step up their efforts when Jadon Sancho has been confirmed.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is determined to land a midfielder this summer and Barnett’s client could be the answer.

However, Rennes will not let him go for cheap and prices have been quoted at £85m upwards, amid interest from Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain.

But it would give them enough to secure Camavinga's signature for £48m with change
Eduardo Camavinga could cost as much as £85m

Saul Niguez

Another midfielder on United’s wish list and it is perhaps no surprise to see another player on the ICM Stellar Sports’ books.

A move away from Atletico Madrid looks on the cards after falling out of favour with Diego Simeone despite signing a nine-year contract in 2017.

The Red Devils have long been interested in the Spaniard, who is looking to rekindle his career despite winning La Liga last season.

Dean Henderson

On the way out of Old Trafford could be Henderson, who does not want to battle with David de Gea for a spot between the posts anymore.

Solskjaer has given the Englishman plenty of reason to stick around after making him No.1 towards the end of the season last year..

Nevertheless, interest in the 24-year-old is high and it would be no surprise to see some offers come in over the summer.
