The transfer market is officially open. From January 1 at 00:00 hours and until January 31 at 23:59, clubs can add new players to their squads to profile their teams for the second part of the season. It is time to sign those contracts that did not give time to sign in summer, plug holes that have appeared over the course of the day … Without the media attention of the summer window, the winter market is also a time for surprises.
The first have already begun to see. The biggest of all is surely the signing of Erling Braut Haaland by Borussia Dortmund. The young Norwegian striker was wanted throughout Europe and it was the German club who has taken the cat to the water for the 21 million euros of its termination clause. He is 19 years old. Just at twice the age, 38, Zlatan Ibrahimovic He has starred in one of the most unexpected movements when he returned to Milan after finishing the contract with the Galaxy.
Before the market opened it was also known that another pearl of the RB Salzburg would set course for the Premier, specifically Liverpool. It's about Japanese Minamino. In Italy, the most popular movement until Ibra had been the exit of Mario Mandzukic Juventus heading to Al-Duhail of the Qatari league. The bianconeri they have moved fast to tie for 35 million euros to Kulusevsky, a 19-year-old Swedish midfielder who will remain on loan at Parma until the end of the season.
In Germany they have advanced their duties: Dortmund sold Weigl to Benfica, Leverkusen signed to Exequiel Palaces… In Italy, Inter, Juventus, Naples and Milan do not rest. And in the Premier there are historical like United and Arsenal in need, while Chelsea have been lifted the punishment that forbade him to sign and values his options.
In Spain the thing has been more stopped. The transfer of Carles Aleñá Betis has been the most commented before January 1. But La Liga clubs have got to work and have already closed businesses such as the transfer of Foulquier to Granada or the signing of Etebo for the Getafe. They are the first of those to come, as teams like Espanyol, Granada, Betis or Eibar threaten to shake the shaker. More 'quiet' will be those above, in quotes because movements are also expected in their ranks.
A '9' for Atlético
The spotlights are on Atlético de Madrid. The mattresses need a striker and dream of Edinson Cavani. The Uruguayan ends contract in summer, but Simeone loves him already. The other option is Paco Alcacer, priced by Dortmund at 40 million. To sign any of the two, the Atleti must sell to one of its stars and the chosen one is Thomas Lemar. The Frenchman has disappointed and has a good poster in the Premier.
In the case of Real Madrid and Barcelona no signings are expected. The white club will release Mariano, intended by several La Liga teams, and will yield to Brahim. The Catalans, who have already disposed of Aleñá, should address the cases of Arturo vidal Y Rakitic -Valverde wants the two to follow- and in turn try to close the signing for the next season of a Dani Olmo that prefers to change of airs already in January to aspire to go to the Eurocopa.
Joao Cancelo to Valencia or Samu Castillejo Espanyol are other rumors that sound louder and that if these signings are given they would give a boost to these teams. Both would return to La Liga, as others can do as Raúl de Tomás, whom they want in the same way in Cornellá. There are rumors of all kinds, such as those that have even placed Hulk under Abelardo's orders in his new Espanyol.
Eriksen seeks destiny
The one that will be one of the great protagonists and that has been related to Madrid and Atleti is Christian Eriksen. The Danish finishes contract in summer with Tottenham. He wants to play at the Santiago Bernabéu, but Tottenham wants to sell now and interesting proposals are coming from Serie A. The Inter de Conte bid strong and Juventus has also knocked on his door. In the Premier, United continues to dream of his signing although the player does not seem interested in playing in Old Trafford.
As the days go by, names will continue to appear. No one is safe. Other winters saw how there were signings such as Coutinho for Barça, Luis Suarez and Van Dijk to Liverpool, Marcelo to Real Madrid, Rakitic to Sevillla … These are just a few examples of operations that, for better or worse, subsequently gave what to talk about. What will be the big movements this winter?
