The start of July signals the opening of the Summer transfer window, and fans throughout the country can begin to look forward to the new season as the eagerly anticipated window sets an early tone of expectation.
The window has traditionally seen hundreds of millions of pounds spent in the Premier League, with last season’s figures topping £800million in expenditure between the 20 top flight clubs.
With signings ranging from the likes of Radamel Falcao to Steven Caulker, fans spend every excruciating minute biting their nails in a state of collective anxiety.
And ultimately take to social media to voice their concerns or confidence.
Will their club spend any money? Is their record signing going to fire them to their target? Or will they flop? Can the club hold onto their best player?
With July just a few short weeks away, we take a look at ten of the most likely transfers to affect the Premier League.
One of Colombia’s greatest forwards was set to grace the Premier League when Manchester United signed him last season on loan from French club AS Monaco.
Only the legendary striker failed to turn up, with Falcao appearing a mere shadow of the prolific ex-Atletico Madrid man under Louis van Gaal.
And if there is a manager capable of bringing Falcao back to his best, Mourinho seems the best option. It could be an exciting year for Chelsea fans.
Following Champions League final defeat with Juventus, the ex-United midfielder seems set to move to one of Europe’s biggest (or richest) sides.
The French midfielder is robust, can pick a pass and isn’t a stranger to a goal, scoring 8 times in 26 Serie A appearances last season.
And with Manchester City seeking to challenge Barcelona for his signature, Pogba could well act as their foundation for the next decade as the Blues seek to become England’s next indomitable side.
The 24-year-old midfielder has been courted by English clubs for some time now, and with manager Jurgen Klopp leaving Borussia Dortmund, Gundogan may find the time is right to leave the club.
Both Arsenal and Manchester United are known admirers of the midfielder who can play a variety of roles, and with only one year remaining on his contract, he could be acquired for a knock-down fee.
And the Germany midfielder is set to announce his future imminently, after declaring he will make an announcement as soon as possible after last weekend’s 7-0 win against Gibraltar.
Mourinho doesn’t want to see his stalwart keeper depart the Club, but after eleven years with the Stamford Bridge side, Cech is determined to leave for first team football after being displaced by Thibaut Courtois.
Reports are emanating that Cech wants to move to Arsenal, but Mourinho would prefer not to sell to a title rival.
It would seem, however, that Chelsea will not stand in the way of their goalkeeper after his many years of service.
The Atletico Madrid forward has been heavily linked with a move to England since he departed Bayern Munich last season.
This time, Louis van Gaal is rumoured to be interested in his services after a rumoured move away for Robin van Persie leaving the Dutchman short of forward options.
And the lofty striker could help to provide a greater presence in the air, with neither of United’s current strikers particularly tall, and play the role that Marouane Fellaini found himself playing at the tail end of last season.
Welsh winger Bale has already been consistently linked with a move back to the Premier League for what seems like an eternity, following his world record transfer to Real Madrid two seasons ago.
Chelsea and Arsenal have fleetingly been rumoured to hold an interest in the explosive forward, however it is Manchester United who seem to hold the greatest chance of signing him.
With Madrid courting star goalkeeper David de Gea from Old Trafford, the Spanish keeper’s fate could be heavily related to what happens to Bale, despite continuous denials that Bale wants to leave the Spanish capital.

The imposing Belgian striker finally returned to form under the guidance of Tim Sherwood at Aston Villa in the second half of the 2014/15 season.
Scoring 11 league goals in the space of 10 matches to help Villa survive the drop, Benteke spectacularly found his shooting boots again to remind the league what he is capable of, and that may be to Aston Villa’s long-term detriment.
Liverpool, Chelsea, and pretty much every Premier League side with a Belgian international has been linked with a move for the striker, with Hazard just one of his international team-mates to state his dream of playing alongside Benteke at club level.

Having helped Juventus to the Champions League final in Berlin, Argentinian forward Carlos Tevez could be set for a return to the Premier League.
The ex-West Ham, Manchester City and United striker has been heavily linked with a move to Liverpool, although rumours persist of another top flight club bidding for the striker.
Still a clinical, relentless presence, the controversial striker could yet make a return to England’s top flight.
After an astonishing breakthrough season at Spurs, Kane has undoubtedly attracted the attention of all the top four sides.
With 31 goals to his name in all competitions last season, and seemingly establishing himself as an all-round forward, Kane is set to ignite a fierce battle for his signature.
Manchester United have been heavily touted to snap him up for £40million but Spurs are notoriously difficult dealers and their relationship with United has been sour ever since Berbatov and Carrick departed north London for Manchester.
And with Levy always looking to extract the best price for his players, the Kane to United story may continue until the dying moments of deadline day.
The controversial England starlet is no stranger to the limelight, having courted the wrath of Liverpool fans over the past year by stating his intent to leave the club.
Liverpool want to squeeze an extortionate fee for one of their brightest prospect in the past decade, and have already been said to have rejected a £20m+ bid by Manchester City.
With both City and Manchester rivals United joining Chelsea, Arsenal, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich on the list of potential suitors, the Sterling saga is set to stretch throughout Summer.
