Best transfer window yet!?

Published

on

This summer’s transfer window was shut on 31st August. It has arguably been termed as the most dramatic and unpredictable transfer window in football history, with shock moves that included two of the most influential football stars.

Drama ensued as former Barcelona ace, Lionel Messi’s contract came to an end. Renewal plans had already been made including him taking a 50% pay cut but in the end, it was decided that Messi could not play for Barcelona again. Rumors began on where he would play next, with him being linked to clubs like Man City and Paris Saint Germain (PSG). Eventually, the Argentine moved to Paris on a 2-year contract.

PSG went on to make other signings, in a bid to build a winning team that would also boost their Champions League ambitions. Their highlight signings included Georginio Wijnaldum from Liverpool, Sergio Ramos from Real Madrid, Achraf Hakimi from Inter Milan, and Gianluigi Donnarumma from AC Milan; plus other deadline day deals.

Then came an announcement from Cristiano Ronaldo, that he wanted to leave Juventus. He was linked to a move back to England, but this time, to Man City. Speculations played out until it was finally announced that Ronaldo had agreed terms with his former club Manchester United.
