Due to the influence of COVID-19, tournaments across Europe were interrupted. However, this makes the player transfer market more exciting than ever.
A series of soccer teams aggressively welcomed the stars during this period. Among them are the giants such as Manchester United, Chelsea, Liverpool, Real Madrid, Inter Milan, Barcelona, PSG or Juventus.
As usual, the name Manchester United has always been the destination of all transfer news. However, during this time, the Reds are in need of keeping quality factors rather than buying more. After the Ighalo firefighting contract was sublime, the Red Devils as well as the fans wanted the team to buy him from Shanghai Greenland Shenhua. The idea of this deal will easily take place recently, Chinese sources said that the management team of Ighalo is intent on making its star price.
Specifically, Shanghai Greenland Shenhua has offered Ighalo up to 17 million euros. The figure is three times higher than the cost the club spent to get Ighalo in early 2019. Prior to this move, the United side is intending to suspend the deal. They will consider more next time the football activities come back and see if Ighalo really worth the price above or not.
In another development, Chelsea desperately wants Dean Henderson. The Red Devils’ keeper has a booming season on loan at Sheffield Utd. That’s why the Blues are desperate to bring him to Stamford Bridge to replace Kepa, who is unstable. Chelsea even want to pay the Reds up to £ 50 million for the remaining 2 years of Henderson’s contract. However, the United side proved to be very tough. Coach Ole Solskjaer also wants to use Henderson in the future to replace David De Gea. He said he would not let the young goalkeeper leave at any cost.
Last summer, Barcelona spent 100 million euros to bring Antoine Griezmann to the Nou Camp. However, after two-thirds of the season, what the French striker has shown is not convincing enough. The Catalans still rely on Messi’s talent to compete for the throne rather than Griezmann’s dripping goals. Even many sources believe that the BLD team is trying to sell him to re-invest in more potential deals.
