Football Agents and Transfers 2016

This is a short blog by football agents and football intermediaires regarding some of the transfers and speculation to date.

The Premier League this season

The Premiership has welcomed some of the world’s top managers and so far they haven’t been afraid to splash the cash in order to start to build teams they believe can challenge for the title.

Manchester United

Manchester United are the second highest spenders in the country with their three signings:

Eric Bailly (£30 million),

Zlatan Ibrahimovic (Free) and

Henrikh Mkhitaryan (£35million).

They have brought in arguably the biggest name players of any team in the Premier League so far, with new manager Jose Mourinho aiming to put his own personal stamp on proceedings at the club after a largely disappointing previous 3 seasons under Louis Van Gaal and David Moyes. With no Champions League football again at Old Trafford it could take more than just the three signings to change the Manchester club’s recent fortunes. Mourinho seems to have identified the final piece to his jigsaw, in the form of French midfield maestro Paul Pogba. The talented midfielder left Old Trafford for free in 2012 and is now reportedly close to re-joining the Red Devils in a deal potentially worth over £100 million.

Chelsea FC

New Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has also decided to splash the cash this summer in order to revamp a Chelsea side that finished a disastrous 10th in the previous campaign after an abysmal start under then manager Jose Mourinho.

Temporary boss Guus Hiddink came in and steadied the ship somewhat, ending the infighting and removing the poisonous atmosphere from around the club, however 10th by Chelsea’s recent high standards simply isn’t good enough. New boss Conte has already spent big on two new players in an attempt to change things. His first signing was that of talented, young Belgian striker Michy Batshuayi from Marseille for around £33 million, followed by the signing of N’Golo Kante from champions Leicester for around £30 million. The signing of Batshuayi will undoubtedly add extra firepower to their forward line, supporting Diego Costa, who if rumours are to be believed could be set for a move back to Atletico Madrid. Kante on the other hand will fit right into new manager Conte’s hard working, pressing, typically Italian style of play. The French midfielder should become a key part of the new look Chelsea side and make a big contribution if Chelsea are to once again push for the title.

Manchester City

Manchester City are another team looking to improve this season and have brought in arguably the world’s best manager to achieve this. After an underwhelming 4th placed finish last season new manager Pep Guardiola will be looking to freshen things up at City. His biggest task will be revitalizing a talented yet aging squad. He is reportedly close to tying up a deal for gifted Brazilian teenager Gabriel Jesus for a reported £27 million. Guardiola has also expressed a strong interest in Everton centre back John Stones and is looking to complete a £50 million for the ball-playing defender as soon as possible. Signing these talented youngsters would go a long way to kick starting Guardiola’s Etihad revolution. One youngster City have signed is Schalke’s German wonder kid Leroy Sane for around £37 million. The speedy attacker will add pace, power and hopefully goals to City’s forward line. Added to the signings of Ilkay Gundogan and Nolito, two players Guardiola knows well from his time spent in Germany and Spain respectively, City could be ready to mount a serious title charge.
