  Premier League transfer news live, today! Latest updates on the summer window We are set for a very busy summer of transfer activity, as the latest transfer news keeps flooding in and plenty of big names are expected to be on the move in the coming months. Your browser does not support this video [ VIDEO: Premier League analysis ] The 2022 summer transfer window opens on June 10 and closes at 6pm ET on September 1. With Erling Haaland already signing for Manchester City, Kylian Mbappe staying at PSG (for now), plus Sadio Mane leaving Liverpool — and plenty of other superstars in demand and contemplating moves — this feels like it will be a summer like no other.

The Bayern Munich front office has had a fantastic outing this transfer window and the sporting director deserves all the credit for the same. Bayern has seemingly found a good one in Hasan “Brazzo” Salihamidžić, who has terrorized several clubs this season with his incredible negotiating skills. But the same cannot be said for RB Leipzig, where the seat of the sporting director has long been vacant.

Now, however, it looks like Bundesliga rivals may have finally found a solution: ex-Borussia Mönchengladbach sporting director Max Eberl has been in talks with the Leipzig CEO Oliver Mintzlaff.

  Manchester City vs. Bayern Munich result: Erling Haaland debut goal decides match at Lambeau Field Erling Haaland scored on his Manchester City debut and it proved the game-winner against Bayern Munich as the Premier League champions return home with two wins on their U.S. tour. Big matches await both teams next weekend.The match was interrupted by a lightning delay just one minute after the Haaland goal and when it resumed 55 minutes later, Haaland returned to the field. He almost scored a second goal had it not been for a last-ditch sliding tackle by a Bayern center back.

In January, Eberl voluntarily gave up his position at Gladbach for personal reasons and has since then retired from public life and engaged himself in travel.

According to Sky, the 48-year-old is seen as the number one solution and the higher-ups at Leipzig are looking to accommodate him at the earliest occasion.

The negotiations between Eberl and Leipzig are already well advanced but the former Gladbach man wish to make a few clarifications before they put it to paper. It is not clear exactly when Eberl plans to return, as the reports suggest he wishes to extend his break till the end of 2022. If so, Eberl would only be able to start with Die Roten Bullen in January 2023.

In any case, Leipzig is working their hardest to find a solution, and Mintzlaff believes it is only Eberl who can deliver it.

Bayern Munich might be keeping Marcel Sabitzer after all.Marcel Sabitzer will definitely stay at FC Bayern beyond this summer. He has no thoughts of leaving this window. As a result, Konrad Laimer — in whom Nagelsmann is very interested - is set to stay in Leipzig and could join Bayern on a free next year.
