Here is the most “crazy” summer transfer window. Highly over-rated players, weird sales. The most viewed league in the world -English Premier League has been on break and as the pre-season tour begins the transfer market is still open. Each team is trying its best to fill and boost their squads by signing players.
Lukaku completed his £75million move to Manchester United from Everton switching clubs with the Man Utd skipper Wayne Rooney who moved to his old club, Everton. Manchester Utd who are now “big spenders” also signed Paul Pogba from Juventus at a deal of £87million. Though the French international didn’t impress that much. The Lukaku move to Utd means that players like Rashford will have little or less play time come next season. Jose Mourinho yesterday jokingly told the media that Lukaku and the “kid” Rashford will be playing each half for the first 3 games next season that is against Real Madrid on August 8th for UEFA Super Cup Final before their first EPL match at home against West Ham and later traveling to Swansea City on 19TH August. While Zlatan Ibrahimovic yet to be handed a new contract means that either he is open for a transfer or he retires from club football. The Utd bosses are only ready to offer the Swedish forward a new contract if he proves to be fit after recovering from a knee injury he suffered last season.
Serie A side AS Roma has also inquired about Anthony Martial. Roma who had let out Salah to the mighty Reds Liverpool now want to sign Martial for a short term loan but Utd has informed suitors that 1995 French-born forward will cost £30 million to buy outright.
With news from Arsenal, the frustrated Oxlade-Chamberlain has been linked to various EPL clubs with Liverpool being on the forefront to sign him. Arsenal is however confident of keeping Chamberlain who is also part of the 25man squad that traveled to Australia for the pre-season campaign.
Meanwhile, Jurgen Klopp has shown keen interest on Angel Correa of Atletico. The LFC manager is keen in strengthening his side ahead of the EPL campaign next season. Signing quality like Mohamed Salah strengthens their forward line. LFC has also signed Solanke. But that is not satisfactory having seen them as one of the weakest team defense wise last season. There struggle to sign defenders like Van Dijk has hit the wall and they have to find alternatives before it’s too late. Liverpool also is in need of a Central Defending Midfielder and Leipzig Nabby Keita has been on top of their list despite Leipzig saying they are not ready to lose any of their key players.
