Summer transfer window has been opened since July 27th and won’t be closed until Monday, October 5th, 2020 and quite a number of clubs have made series of transfers and sold out players too, the big sides especially.
Here’s a quick rundown of the transfers the big sides have made so far
Chelsea sold Willian to Arsenal and bought two players (Timo werner-Leipzig, Hakim Ziyech- Ajax) the third Kai Havertz still in final decisions, rumours have it that the deal has been sealed already, but it hasn’t been announced yet.
Mancity has gotten Nathan Ake from Bournemouth and Ferran Torres from Valencia whilst selling out Leroy sane to Bayern, David Silva to Real Sociedad. Arsenal got Gabriel Magalhães.
Liverpool now has Kostas Tsimikas from Olympiakos and Spurs’ got Pierre-Emile Hajbjerg from Southampton. Even smaller teams made transfers already plus newly promoted Leeds United and West Bromwich Albions.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Manchester United are still in deep thoughts. They couldn’t agree on the price for Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho and rumours have it that United are in talks with Juventus winger for Douglas Costa.
You would be wondering if what happened during the last transfer window with Sporting Lisbon’s then player Bruno Fernandes would repeat itself at the last minute or if really they won’t be buying any people, but really, who knows?
Although buying much players doesn’t necessarily mean the club would be the best. I mean, if a player isn’t playing too well in his club and just had a one-time-glory moment maybe in his former club’s league or at the national level (which takes us to the faults in stats, but that would be the gist for another day.) He could end up being a burden or loss for the club that buys him. The clubs must also be willing to pay the players well(shouldn’t be a problem for the big sides anyways)
The big question still is Would united make any transfers? Or not?
