The Race Against Time As The Transfer Window Closes Tomorrow
There are few things over which football fans will never agree upon. The first and the most obvious is the question of “Which is the best football league in Europe?”
Arguments from all sides of the fence ensure there’ll never be a unanimous answer. Regardless, the Barclays Premier League, the Serie A, the Bundesliga, the La Liga as well as the French Ligue 1 always hold our attention.
The Barclay’s Premier league is one of the most intriguing leagues in the world and has attracted some of the biggest names in football and one of the most interesting features of these European Leagues is the Summer Transfer window.
The transfer window represents a frame of time which clubs can sign as well as sell players. It is a period of strengthening as well as offloading dead wood for many clubs.
Today, BPL clubs race against time as they seek to beat the transfer window in England which slams shut tomorrow. The summer window has seen some fantastic deals, with Manchester City sealing the transfer of Raheem Sterling as well as Kevin De Bruyne in record deals.
Defending champions Chelsea have signed Barcelona want-away, Pedro as well as Radamel Falcao on a free transfer. Manchester United have not been left out of the action as they signed Memphis Depay, Morgan Schneiderlin, Bastian Schweinsteiger, Matteo Darmian as well as Sergio Romero.
If you thought these signings represent all of the action then you’ve got another think coming! Chelsea’s poor start to the season means they’re hard pressed to sign a central defender as well as defensive midfielder.
This comes after their fruitless attempts to sign Everton youngster John Stones. It’s not looking good for Jose Mourinho and you can be sure he’ll seal a deal or two before midnight.
Goal shy Manchester United know that they cannot win trophies this season by relying on Wayne Rooney who now seems to have an aversion to scoring goals. Reports indicate they’ve made an audacious bid for Monaco youngster, 19 year old Anthony Martial.
Arsenal are also in the same position, needing a striker to deepen a squad where the most glaring flaw is the absence of a centre forward who is really dependable.
Brace yourselves for an interesting 24 hours ahead!
