    OK, here's a proposal for this summer.

    You can guess up to any number of transfer you want.
    If you guess which players goes to which club you get 5 points. If you guess the correct price (say with 5M€ margin) you get 5 more points.

    I tied to pick guys who were rumored to be considering leaving.

    I'll start :

    Ronaldo : stays put
    James Rodriguez : 70M€ PSG
    Griezmann : stays put
    Neymar : stays put
    Gotze : 30M€ Dortmund
    Thiago Alcantara : 50M€ City
    Aubameyang : stays put
    Hummels : 40M€ Bayern
    Pogba : stays put
    Yaya Touré : 10M€ Milan
    Hart : stays put
    Diego Costa : 30M€ China
    Courtois : stays put
    N. Kanté : 35M€ Chelsea
    Ibra : United (free)
    Ben Arfa : PSG (free)
    Dembélé : 30M€ Dortmund
    Cavani : stays put
    Higuain: 40M€ Chelsea
    Dybala : stays put
    Guerreiro : 12M€ PSG
    Boufal : 18M€ Arsenal
    Batshuayi : 15M€ Napoli
    Lacazette : stays put
    Fekir : stays put
    Ben Yedder : 15M€ Lyon
    Bale : stays put
    Benzema : stays put
    Lewandowski : stays put
    Hazard : stays put
    Lukaku : 40M€ PSG
    Marquinhos : stays put
    Gundogan : 30M€ City
    Sane : stays put
    Mkh : 30M€ Chelsea
    Laporte : 50M€ City

    Ronaldo, Bale, Neymar, Benzema all staying

    I'll say Kante signs a new deal, with large wage increase and increased release fee. If not, he'll head to Arsenal for 25M.

    James Rodriguez: PSG (80M) edit: United 75M
    Aubameyang: Staying
    Higuan: Chelsea (60M)
    Ibra: United (Free)
    Lukaku: Chelsea (45M)
    John Stones: United (35M)
    Hummels: Bayern (35M) [almost feels like cheating at the game]
    Renato Sanches: United (80M) lol, go big or go home
    Depay: Mid table EPL team (20M)

    He'd have James' spot in the roster. That post wasn't 100% thought through though.

    Why is your Batshuayi estimate so low versus all the quoted prices I've seen? West Ham supposedly already bid 30million.

    Guy has tunel vision. He doesn't know he has teammates either.
    He's powerful and a good shooter but IQ of a shrimp.

    I doubt that very much. Mkhitaryan doesn't like Klopp's style and he said so fairly explicitly in the media.

    Also, can't believe some of you think Griezmann goes to Chelsea when Atletico is at the moment a much more successful and better team than Chelsea

    Lots of players are going to Chelsea according to most of you and it's interesting to read.
    I don't think they'll be more attractive than Liverpool for instance. Liverpool might have CL football and a charismatic coach.
    Chelsea will have no CL football and a coach that isn't particularly attractive (football wise :D ) to most players.

    I totally agree with this, same goes for him to United potentially. Only thing they can offer him is more money (this is under the assumption United doesnt come in 4th). But either way Atletico are so much better.

    But plenty of rich teams make the CL. I'm not sure what Chelsea can offer than City, Arsenal, Tottenham, Juventus, PSG, Bayern, Real, Barca, Dortmund, etc... can't offer.

    Why they would pick Chelsea over those teams seems puzzling to me.

    Griezmann is under contract for 4 more years, so Atletico would probably ask a fortune for him. Of the clubs that could afford him, none really makes sense for both club and Griezmann.
