Many clubs across Europe, especially those with little to play for, will have already turned their attention to the summer and planning for the 2019/20 campaign.
So, with that in mind, we asked our friends at Football Whispers to round up all the latest news, views and gossip from across the continent.
Real Madrid are believed to be lining up a move for Neymar. The world's most expensive football player is understood to have a clause in his contract that could see him leave Paris Saint-Germain for £145m during the summer of 2020. (Mundo Deportivo)
Real Madrid are close to securing their second signing of the summer. With Eder Militao already in the bag, Los Blancos have agreed a contract with Eintracht Frankfurt forward and Barcelona transfer target Luka Jovic. (Mundo Deportivo)
A £51m fee has been agreed between the La Liga side and the Bundesliga outfit, with 20 per cent of that heading the way of Benfica after the Europa League semi-finalists. (AS)
But Eintracht Frankfurt are also interested in Real Madrid forward Mariano Diaz. The 25-year-old impressed for Lyon and could replace Jovic at the Commerzbank-Arena. (Marca)
Manchester United are lining up a move for Lyon striker Moussa Dembele. The 22-year-old has enjoyed a productive debut year in France, netting 17 goals in all competitions, and could be available for £45m. (L'Equipe)
Jose Mourinho is being lined up as AS Roma manager. The former Manchester United boss was believed to be the favourite to replace Thomas Tuchel if PSG decided to part ways with him after a disappointing showing in the Champions League this term. However, a return to Serie A is of interest to Mourinho. (L'Equipe)
If Tuchel does end up leaving the Parc des Princes, both Bayern Munich and Chelsea are interested in appointing him as head coach. (RMC)
There would be a big summer clearout at AC Milan this summer, with the club looking to rebuild the squad and battle for a top-four finish. Tiemoue Bakayoko's loan deal is unlikely to be extended but the biggest shock is the club will allow Franck Kessie to leave if their valuation of him is met. Arsenal, Everton, PSG and Manchester United are reportedly keen. (Calciomercato)
Napoli will sign PSV forward Hirving Lozano this summer after agreeing a deal with the Eredivisie club. The Mexico international will move for a fee believed to be in the region of €40m, with Mino Raiola handling negotiations with the Serie A side. (Calciomercato).
Bayern Munich are no longer reportedly interested in Julian Brandt. But the Bayer Leverkusen attacker has other offers, one of which is from rivals Borussia Dortmund. The 23-year-old's father reportedly held a secret meeting with the club to discuss their plans for his son. It is believed he is available for £25m this summer. (SportBild)
Manchester City have held a meeting with the parents of Benfica attacking midfielder Joao Felix. The versatile forward has recently been linked with Manchester United and Liverpool. (Record)
