There has been a lot of gossip since the transfer market closed in the summer and with it closing early this time around, many missed out of their prime targets which are why we could see a busy January window. Normally when clubs try to sign players during this period the prices are sky high due to the impact it will have on the team the player is leaving.

Below are my picks of the rumors that make the most sense and have a strong possibility of taking place once the transfer market opens at the turn of the year.
#1. Jadon Sancho
Manchester City must be kicking themselves after selling one of the hottest rising stars in European football Jadon Sancho. At only 18 years of age, Borussia Dortmund has got a bargain at the eight million pounds that they paid and already he is worth three times that value. So far this season he has improved greatly managing to score five goals and create six assists. He has been linked with all of the top EPL clubs fighting for a place in the Champions League so if one of them is going to be able to sign him, they will need to pay well above the odds to take him away from Germany.
#2. Milan Škriniar
After the summer transfer window closed Jose Mourinho spat his dummy out and cried for months about not getting a new pair of central defenders. The club attempted to sign Toby Alderweireld, Harry Maguire, Diego Godin, and Jerome Boateng but all failed to materialize. It is likely that in January they will be back in the market trying to resolve this and one of the names at the top of the shopping list is Milan Škriniar. The 23-year-old Slovakian international currently plays of Inter Milan and would be a great signing if they are able to tempt his Italian club into selling.
#3. Paul Pogba
It is no secret that Jose Mourinho and Paul Pogba hate each other and so far this season the relationship has gotten to a breaking point. For the club to move forward one of the has to go and it is likely that Mourinho will be the one still at the club at the end of the campaign. If that is the case it could spell the end for World Cup winner Pogba and it may even happen this January. Barcelona is supposed to be interested in signing him and tried to do so during the summer window. He is the man they would like to fill Iniesta’s boots after leaving but they will have to cough up a fee over £100 million if they are going to get their man next month.
#4. Eden Hazard
One of the biggest transfers of the 2019 January transfer window could be the sale of Eden Hazard. He will be greatly missed by the Blues if he goes as many see him as the best player in the EPL but due to his refusal to sign a new contract, his club may cash in. With Real Madrid at the front of the queue and a bag full of cash from the Ronaldo sale, there is a strong possibility that this one could take place.
