Are you still missing the World Cup? Definitely, you are. Who will not, while the one-month-long football thriller came after four years. So what? While there are updates of summer transfer market!
In fact, in this particular phase of every summer, the European football clubs usually deliver a lot of interesting updates of the transfer market. And the World Cup has added more colours to the transfer market.
Is there any lacking of this Incredible World Cup?
Of course not. It was full of thrills, excitements, frustrations, incidents and upsets. Especially, there were some amazing individual performances. And the European clubs have done a very good calculation of those performances.
During the World Cup, the biggest transfer news came from Real Madrid and Cristiano Ronaldo. After ending the long 9-year relationship with Real, he joined Italy’s club Juventus’s. Of course, Neymar was a reason for his leave but Real is not going to get Neymar in this season, that’s for sure till now.
On the other hand, Mbappe, the emerging star of this World Cup has dazzled the eyes of Real Madrid’s president Florentino Perez like any others of the world. But it does not seem to be a good news for Real, because this French wonder has not shown much interest in playing for Real right now.
But Real has to fill Ronaldo’s place, so now Real’s full attention is on Belgian and Chelsea midfielder Eden Hazard. However, Hazard also seems interested in coming to Real.
As such, he said before the end of the World Cup, “It is the right time to leave Chelsea.” Later, he added, “It’s a dream for anyone to play for Real.”
There is more on the list of favourites for Real Madrid, they are willing to get Hazard’s Chelsea and Belgian teammate Thibaut Courtois. This goalkeeper had some remarkable moments under Belgium’s goal post throughout the World Cup, which brought him the Golden Gloves of this World Cup. Although he still has left one year’s contract with Chelsea.
Benjamin Pavard, another surprise pack of World Cup champion France, is on the hot list of too many clubs. Both of Manchester’s city rivals and Chelsea are currently in queue to get the Stuttgart’s right-back. Even German giant Bayern Munich wanted to have this 22-year-old Frenchman to their squad.
Croatian wingers Ivan Perisic and Ante Rebic played superbly throughout the World Cup. That’s why Manchester United coach Jose Mourinho wants to have them in his squad quite badly.
Russian midfielder Aleksandr Golovin was the main craftsman behind Russia’s journey to the quarter-final. Both the English club Arsenal and Chelsea wants to have this Russian midfielder into their squad.
It is not like that the club officials are after the World Cup’s long-running horses only.
Though Serbia was eliminated from the group stage, English club Chelsea and Italian club Juventus have already shown their interests in Milinkovic-Savic. And another English club Liverpool has already taken Swiss international Xherdan Shaqiri into their dugout.
