sport news Transfer News: Neymar, Mauro Icardi and more of the deals still to happen in ...

The summer transfer window may be drawing to a close in England, but on the continent it's only getting started.

Neymar and James Rodriguez have both been linked with high-profile departures from Paris Saint-Germain and respectively, while in the pursuit of Romelu Lukaku by Inter MIlan and Juventus looks set to have ramifications for Edin Dzeko, Gonzalo Higuain and Mauro Icardi.

With a whole month of transfer news still to come, Sportsmail assesses the likelihood of 10 of the biggest transfers mooted to happen between clubs on the continent in the coming weeks. 

Neymar is reportedly unhappy at PSG but a move back to Barcelona faces many complications

Neymar is reportedly unhappy at PSG but a move back to Barcelona faces many complications

Neymar - PSG to Barcelona 

The Neymar-exit rumour mill is in full spin again this summer amid reports that the Brazilian superstar has had enough of Paris, just two years after leaving the Nou Camp for a world-record fee of £198million.

Marco Verratti added more fuel to the fire on Monday by saying Paris Saint-Germain 'should not keep unhappy players', after Neymar failed to return for pre-season and was subsequently fined by the club. 

Last season compounded the misery for the 27-year-old, who picked up bans for an abusive social media post and even striking a fan after PSG's French Cup final loss to Rennes. After two injury-hit campaigns, it seems he wants to go back to the Nou Camp.

Barca have already forked out £108m for Antoine Griezmann and if any deal is to be agreed it will need to be a swap. Philippe Coutinho is one likely player who could go the other way, as well as reluctant duo Ivan Rakitic and Samuel Umtiti.

A homecoming for Neymar though is complicated by the acrimonious relationship between PSG and Barca, according to reports in Spain. A move to would be more likely, if they hadn't already splashed a ton of money on Eden Hazard and co.

Neymar, then, looks to be angling for a return, but whether that can happen will depend on whether a complex deal can be achieved. 

But with Kylian Mbappe now the king of Paris, it wouldn't be complete a surprise to see the Parisians cut their losses and ditch their unsettled star.  

Likelihood rating: 3/5 

Philippe Coutinho - Barcelona to PSG 

Philippe Coutinho did not live up to his billing during his first full season at the Nou Camp and struggled with a poor relationship with the club's supporters.

He was jeered by his own fans last term and, despite public backing from his team-mates, he has struggled to settle. The arrivals of Antoine Griezmann and Frenkie de Jong will only make it harder for Coutinho to establish himself next season, furthering the prospect of an exit.

A move back to Anfield though has been completely ruled out by Jurgen Klopp, who says Liverpool will not be spending big this summer. Paris Saint-Germain look to be his best bet of ending his Catalan woes, but any deal is likely to involve Neymar heading the other way, due to PSG's ongoing dance with Financial Fair Play. 

If Barca can pull the right strings to lure Neymar, then Coutinho could head the other way. But it remains unlikely.

Likelihood rating: 2/5

James Rodriguez - to Napoli

James Rodriguez looked to be all set for a summer move before 's 7-3 humbling by rivals Atletico in pre-season.  

The Colombian returned to Madrid this month after a successful two-year stint with Bayern Munich on loan but despite his good form Zinedine Zidane appeared unwilling to find a place for him next season. 

Napoli are the favourites for his signature and, after missing out on Nicolas Pepe to Arsenal, they are reportedly set to double-down on James. 

Carlo Ancelotti has spoken highly of the playmaker, but they could face competition from Atletico, after their general manager Gil Marin confirmed their interest last week. 

But president Florentino Perez, having already intervened on Gareth Bale's future, has also reportedly blocked James's exit too following the club's shock friendly defeat.

The intervention could scupper Rodriguez's departure plans, but with Atletico and Napoli both publicly interested and Real needing to recoup some of the money they have spent this summer, it would be unwise to rule out a transfer. 

Likelihood rating: 3/5

Mariano Diaz - to Monaco

While Florentino Perez has attempted to block the exits of both James Rodriguez and Gareth Bale, he will perhaps be more pliable when it comes towards the departure of Mariano Diaz.

The Dominican forward returned to Madrid from Lyon last summer after the Spanish giants exercised a buy-back clause worth £21m, having sold him for £7m a year prior.

He only made a handful of appearances last season, and following the arrival of Luka Jovic, the 25-year-old has fallen further down the pecking order.

The 13-time European champions reportedly want £18m for Mariano, with both Monaco and Roma in the hunt. The French side are looking for a long-term replacement for Radamel Falcao, and coach Leonardo Jardim has identified Mariano as his No 1 target - according to L'Equipe

Mariano is reluctant to leave, but with Ligue 1 experience already to his name, Monaco could be an ideal destination.

Likelihood rating: 4/5
