26.09.2022 » An intense transfer window with Ronaldo on hold...
As expected, this past summer transfer window was one of the busiest in recent years, with many big moves in the most important leagues in Europe. Cristiano Ronaldo, who made headlines all summer, ended up staying in Manchester though. The Portuguese superstar was linked with multiple clubs mostly in Portugal, Spain, Italy, England and Germany, but the transfer never took place and the 37-year old will play the last year of his contract with the Red Devils this season. Nevertheless, Cristiano Ronaldo was not the only target many top clubs had in their secret agenda and there were several surprising transfers we'll be covering in this article...
Cristiano Ronaldo - United 2022/23:
English Premier League Transfers
Let's start with the new goalscoring machine in the English Premier League, Erling Haaland. Haaland joined Manchester City from Borusia Dortmund this summer. He has already proven to be a crucial team member for the Citizens. This acqusition shows again the strongest side of City, their manager Pep Guardiola. He knew that City were creating a lot of chances and goals, but they were still missing a key striker. Haaland was the perfect fit. The Norwegian has scored 14 goals and contributed with many assists in just 10 competitive games for Man City, averaging a 1.5 goal per game ratio so far.
Antony also seems like he will fit well with Manchester United. He joined Man Utd after the club decided to pay Ajax a total sum of £86m.
One of the main transfers taking place in the Bundesliga was player who dominated the Premier League in recent years. We are talking about Bayern's new signing, Sadio Mané. Mané left Liverpool to play in the Bundesliga this season, and he is already proving to be settling in well with his new team. The Senegalese is renowned for his pushing, dribbling, and pace. He is regarded as one of the best players in the world and he is already among the greatest African players of all time.
La Liga transfers
Justin Kluivert joined Valencia from AS Roma on loan. The Dutch is just 23 years old and plays as a forward. He is the son of the former Barcelona and Ajax striker, Patrick Kluivert.
Another important transfer in La Liga was Oriol Romeu, who joined Girona Fútbol Club SAD, coming from an English Premier League side, Southampton. Romeu already played for Barcelona and Chelsea in the past.
Serie A transfers
Perhaps one of the most important transfers for the Italian Serie A was the one that made Angel di Maria joining Juventus from PSG. The Argentine played for Real Madrid, Manchester United and PSG in recent years and he is also part of the Argentina National Team. He can operate as an attacking midfielder or winger. Di Maria is considered to be one of the top wingers in the world.
There was a rumor of another Premier League player from Liverpool, Arthur, to be close of signing for a Serie A club. Liverpool said that they are not planning to send Arthur Melo back to Juve in a near future though, despite the rumors coming from Italy.
Japan J1 League transfers
The biggest transfer in the J1 League this transfer window was Gabriel Xavier. The Brazilian joined H. C. Sapporo after deciding to leave his former club, Nagoya Grampus. The midfielder is valued at €850Th.
