In recent years, football has undergone a lot of changes, and many of the immutable truths of the game have ceased to be so. And this summer, many clubs were also able to surprise – both good and bad. Let’s take a look at the hottest deals this summer.
22Bet official website offers you many interesting bets.
Barcelona was clearly not sitting idle. Sergio Aguero, arguably Manchester City’s greatest player, joined the squad, teammate Eric Garcia and former Manchester United striker Memphis Depay. And everyone arrived at Camp Nou free of charge. Spending (or not spending) wisely is something that Barça has rarely been able to do. On the contrary, most often they overpay, and then regret it.
But another problem arose: so much money is spent on salaries that the Catalans cannot yet register their players, and Lionel Messi has already said goodbye to the team and is about to sign a contract with PSG.
What Barcelona will be capable of without Messi – we will see very soon. But, it is possible that another couple of players will leave the Catalan club in order to save money. On the exit list: Clement Langle, Ousmane Dembele, Miralem Pjanic, Martin Braithwaite, Neto, Griezmann and Philippe Coutinho.
This summer “Villa” is behaving cunningly and even insolently.
Surprisingly, Aston Villa doesn’t care who else is hunting its players. Somehow they leave big rivals with their noses, while offering ridiculous (by the standards of the Premier League) money.
Yes, Jack Grealish went to Manchester City, but Aston Villa received very decent money for him – more than 120 million euros.
It’s unclear what Dortmund’s plan was in the transfer market, but their actions – or inaction – definitely surprised many.
The Bundesliga team finally sold winger Jadon Sancho to Manchester United for £ 73m and replaced him with flamboyant striker Donyell Malen. The 22-year-old Netherlands national football player is a good signer, worth £ 27m and has 55 goals in 116 appearances for PSV.
But Malen cannot be called a direct replacement for Sancho, especially since after the Englishman left Borussia there are many players in the central position. Thorgan Hazard is a great striker who mostly plays on the left flank, while Marco Reus prefers the center, where Giovanni Reina, Julian Brandt and Jude Bellingham are also very good. What system they will play next season is anyone’s guess.
Finally, Erling Holland. Chelsea, Barcelona, Real Madrid, Manchester City and Manchester United are all linked to the striker’s transfer. Chelsea are leading the race, but it remains to be seen if they will pay the asking price, estimated to be around £ 130 million.
It is generally accepted that the Norwegian will leave this summer. Dortmund could gain 130 million pounds this summer or lose it in about half in a year when the clause in his contract comes into force.
