The summer transfer window has closed in the Premier League, but clubs throughout the rest of Europe are still open for business.

With the rumours growing in pace and volume during this ‘silly season’, it can be difficult and painstaking to separate the stories of some legitimacy from the rest of the noise.

Fortunately, we’ve taken it upon ourselves to do it for you.

Below, you’ll find some of the latest transfer news churned out of our rumours and analysed for your benefit along with our calculated predictions.

MARCOS ROJO – MANCHESTER UNITED TO FENERBAHCE

TOPSHOT-FBL-WC-2018-MATCH50-FRA-ARG

Manchester United are still attempting to offload Marcos Rojo and are currently locked in negotiations with Fenerbahce, according to Fanatik.

Why it will happen: United attempted to sell Rojo to Everton and Wolverhampton Wanderers when the transfer window was open in England. Clearly, the erratic Argentina centre-back is seen as expendable.

Why it won’t happen: Rojo signed a lucrative contract extension earlier this season and his wages are sizeable. Fenerbahce also need to come through the Champions League qualifiers to afford the operation.

Prediction: There are too many reasons to question whether this deal will come off. It could be one for January.

Rating: 5/10

ADRIEN RABIOT – PARIS SAINT-GERMAIN TO BARCELONA

FBL-FRA-LIGUE 1-PSG-CAEN

Barcelona are looking to swoop in ahead of Liverpool and sign Adrien Rabiot, French newspaper L’Equipe claim.

Why it will happen: Rabiot has reportedly turned down all offers to extend a deal that runs out next summer. As a free agent, the centre midfielder will be alluring to most elite sides in Europe. Barca have long been linked to his signature.

Why it won’t happen: As long as Rabiot stays in place at PSG, they will hope to convince him to stay. The club has repeatedly shown a desire to pay enormous wages to their players and this could swing his long-term future their way.

Prediction: There are still many twists and turns left in this saga. PSG is a great place to be, while the likes of Liverpool and Juventus will offer fierce competition.

MOHAMED ELNENY – ARSENAL TO MARSEILLE

Arsenal v Paris Saint Germain - International Champions Cup 2018

Mohamed Elneny is reportedly looking to leave Arsenal this summer, reports the Mirror.

Why it will happen: Elneny appears way down the pecking order at Emirates Stadium. The Egypt international struggled for game time, even before new head coach Unai Emery added defensive midfielders Matteo Guendouzi and Lucas Torreira.

Why it won’t happen: A new four-year contract was only signed in March. This means Arsenal can ask for a big fee if Marseille come knocking.

Prediction: It is easy to see a loan deal with a view to a permanent move being agreed before the window closes in Ligue 1.
