Hello and welcome to Transfer Deadline Day! Yes, it’s time.
That special day of the year, this is the Thursday where your club signs someone amazing who sets up a title push nobody expected. It could be a £200,000 signing from Scunthorpe, a loan deal from Huddersfield Under-23s or maybe, just maybe, a consortium backed with more money than many countries will purchase your club and bankroll a spending spree like never before. Does anyone know where Robinho is right now?
Or, as is more likely, it’ll be a day of rumour that leaves you feeling thoroughly medium. There is no way tell anymore and the acceptance that buying in January means paying inflated prices has dulled the excitement levels somewhat.
That’s not to say there won’t be transfers. If someone special were to become available, you can bet anything that Premier League clubs will leap to action to make it happen. And the new trend for young British players to be scouted and poached by European clubs, specifically those in Germany, means we could be in for some shock transfers.
Chelsea say Callum Hudson-Odoi won’t be going anywhere… but can they really get rid of Bayern Munich’s advances? Man Utd might fancy buying a wonderkid or two and Benfica’s Joao Felix is one of the most coveted of these in the world… and look – United are linked with him already!
Idrissa Gueye wants a dream move to PSG, Andreas Christensen can’t get a game, Gary Cahill too, Marouane Fellaini might move to China, and in Scotland, there are transfers happening every five minutes. It’s the tightest league in Europe and at least four teams may try to strengthen their sides to push for the title.
AC Milan have money, Real Madrid might buy, Barcelona signed Kevin Prince Boateng on loan (they did!), Man City have had a little stutter, Arsenal are desperate to improve the squad… anything could happen. And when it does, you can follow all the action right here throughout the entire day as we bring you all the real news, questionable gossip and analyse those players you might never heard of but who are somehow worth £20million to find out just who they really are.
