TransfersTOThe great ones look for level markers … and there is not for everyone
“There are no top centrals”, the intermediaries insist, knowing that in the uncertain market to which we will peek well into the summer they will be a coveted piece. Many greats seek to reinforce that position, for which there is little supply and much demand. SinceManchester to Paris, passing through London, Barcelona or Milan,the technical secretaries are scrambling to get central for their defenses, a position whose price ishas multiplied in recent years. It is the war of the centrals.
TheBarahas only three centrals in the first team,Piqu, LengletandUmtiti, and the latter is on the market for 40 million, reason why from Can Bara they are searching imperiously central, although it hasTodibo on loan at Schalkeuntil the end of this course. It seems unlikely that with the market crash the Germans would exercise the option to buy 25 million. Madrid is not moving in that regard.
Regarding plants that can attract the attention of teamsChampions, atAthletic Unai Nezpoints to handover due to30 million clause and the non-renewal of the plant by the lions, the opposite of aYeraywhich expanded last year and its price rose to 70. In theVillarreal has been emerging Pau Torres(international, 50 class).Diego Llorente(another 50) has already generated interest inPremierin previous years, asDjen(35 in Getafe). In the Sevilla Monchi blind aDiego Carloswith 75, but there will be teams knocking on the door. The one who has the best chance of changing airs isSalisu, revelation of the course whose cost is 12.The Attic has it between eyebrows.
The spotlights rest onMatthijs De Ligt. His first year inTurnhas raised many doubts with a player who generated an intense fight last year betweenBara and Juve.He opted for Italy and has not convinced. At 20 years old and after a 75 million transfer, Juve, in need of selling, will look favorably on a transfer, since its staff hasBonucci, Ruganiand long-term injuredChiellini, which already reappeared (contract ends but it is understood that to renew), andDemirel, the Turk who was showing a great level and to be ready in a couple of months. De Ligt is one of the most coveted by the greats.
AtInterThey also seek central to that line of three so classicConte, to accompanySkriniar, De Vrij and Godn,although it is not ruled out that the Uruguayan may leave. AtNaplescontinues one of the best in the world,Koulibaly, who has plenty of suitors, but none who satisfy the always high demands ofLaurentiis, closer to 100 million than to 50. Who knows if this market depreciation is the ideal context for a top signing.
In the Premier, whereThey already broke the mark with Macguire (88 kilos paid by United) andVan Dijk,the fight is even bigger. TheCity, United, Tottenham, Chelsea… even theLiverpooltrack shop windows across Europe, defenses section.
Starting with aCitywhere players likeStones or Otamendito open a gap in a line that this season has been the great Achilles heel ofGuardiola. TheUnited, with muscle to continue in the search for the exit of the desert, he always goes hard to the market, and needs another defense along withMcguire and Lindelof, with Baillyout of a serious injury. InLiverpoolThey are looking for a central room in anticipation that I can leaveLovren(ends in 2021).
In theCity, Mourinhoyou need to sign in the middle of the back every time your contract endsVertonghenand stay withDavinson Snchez, Alderweireldand the young manFoyth(21 years, seven games). AtArsenalThey face a delicate situation, with three of the centrals heading for the last year of the contract:Sokratis, Mustafi and David Luiz,what compels them in the search for substitutes (although they have justsign Spanish Pablo Mar). Finally, theChelseaalso aims to raise the level of a rear where they formRudiger, Christensen, Tomori and Zouma.
ThePSGknow to loseThiago Silva, reference and Parisian captain for the last eight years. At 35, he ends his contract and except surprise not to renew. In staff they continueMarquinhos(usual midfielder),Kimpembe, Diallo(signed fromDortmundin 2019 for 32 kilos) andKehrer, whose performance has fallen and sometimes edged to the side. In Mnaco another pearl of the prolific French power station is attracting the attention of the greats:Benoit Badiashile,19 years. Because another French monopolizes glances atLeizpig. Dayot Upamecano, 21 years, end of contract in 2021 and revelation this course inBundesliga and Champions.Its sale is considered safe, surely heading to the Premier.
In short, few centrals for many greats. And surely at gold prices in the market.Supply, demand and clubswith less box which further complicate the search for top bookmarks.
