The European summer of 2021 is bound to be an eventful one as Euro 2020 finally goes ahead across the continent.
The transfer market will be busy too, with a host of high-profile stars facing more than uncertain futures with their current employers.
Barcelona's newly-elected president Joan Laporta's first and most important job will be to somehow convince club captain and iconic figure Lionel Messi to extend his glorious stay at the Nou Camp.
At the other end of the pitch, Gianluigi Donnarumma is still only 22 years old but is already a veteran of 239 AC Milan appearances and has 22 Italy caps to his name. The long-term successor to Buffon in an Azzurri jersey even shares his first name, and the Rossoneri needs to move heaven and earth to keep him at the club.
Bayern Munich stalwart David Alaba, valued at €55m by popular site transfermarkt, won't be renewing terms with the German giants and the 28-year-old utility man will be able to take his pick from a handful of premium suitors.
Barca's interest in Lyon skipper Memphis Depay is well-documented, while the same can be said for the inevitable departure from Anfield of his compatriot Gini Wijnaldum.
One way or another, we are going to see some staggering moves in 2021.
