What a Winter Deadline Day!
The winter market closed on January 31, and as often happens, last-minute signings arrived, and fans are waiting to see their new idols dressed in shorts. The newcomers are already kissing the shield. Will they please the fans? Will they meet expectations? Football Host tells you what the main transfers have been, how they benefit their teams and the leagues.
Clearly the lights are taken by Enzo Fernández who arrived at Chelsea, who was reinforced to fight for the Champions League. The Argentinian will contribute game, dynamics, assistance and goal, he is the top player of the moment. He showed what he is capable of giving in the World Cup and many clubs set their eyes on him, but the ones who paid the 120M euros that his clause cost were the Blues. Undoubtedly, English football will enjoy one of the footballers who best carries out the idea of tiki taka, the Premier League will benefit from this great signing who has not traveled to London to play Indian.
On the other hand, Manchester United wants to reappear on the scene and that is why it hired the Austrian Marcel Sabitzer. Coming from Bayern Munich, Sabtizer will give more fluidity to the Red Devils' game and more control of possession. The idea of Ten Hag is that he can be associated with Eriksen and generate greater depth in attacks, without counting on the defensive deployment that he is capable of. Another figure who reaches the Premier, who always gives us great games.
Mikel Arteta's Arsenal wants to stay at the top of the English tournament and that is why they bought Jorginho, who comes from Chelsea. Luxury reinforcement for the Gunners, a brand five and quick start, timing and intelligent to associate. Arsenal is preparing to win the Premier League again after almost 10 years of drought. Will Jorginho be able to help those led by Arteta to be crowned champions? From Football Host we believe that without a doubt they will contribute their grain of sand and they will achieve the league title.
Ayoze Pérez returns to Spain to wear the Real Betis shirt, after 9 years in England, playing for Newcastle and Leicester, the striker born in Tenerife returns to give "Engineer" Pellegrini options in attack. The former Tenerife player has just scored 16 goals in 114 games for the Foxes. This football season he has played 700 minutes spread over 13 games with one goal and one assist. Pérez will seek to leave a good impression on the people of Betis who will enjoy his football during his loan until the end of the season.
A luxury reinforcement in defense for Mourinho, Diego Llorente arrives at Roma from Leeds. The Portuguese coach needed to reinforce the central zone of the defense, since although he has variants, none of them are renowned or of his absolute confidence. Firm, secure, on the right foot, strong in one-on-one and above all, powerful in the air. A classic central defender that Mourinho likes, Llorente will look for his best version at La Lupa. We believe that it is a top reinforcement for a team and a tournament that is always defined in the defensive facets of the teams.
Bayern Munich gave the surprise by hiring the Portuguese Joao Cancelo on loan, the Bavarians took advantage of the short circuits between Pep and the player to get the services of the best winger in the world today. Versatility, associated game, goal pass and above all arrival in the area. Cancelo will empower a Bayern Munich that wants to return to the top of Europe and Football Host is sure that it will be like that. It is, together with Enzo Fernández, the Winter Market pass. The German league will have a unique player in its ranks.
Chilean midfielder Williams Alarcón who leaves local football to head towards the second division of Spanish football. The operation is a loan for 6 months with a purchase option. UD Ibiza seeks to save itself from relegation, a very complicated task, and that is why it incorporates a promising pivot, who arrives from Unión La Calera. It is a classic 5, cut and play fast, it is simple in its resolutions and usually releases well to accompany the team's attack. He will be a player to watch, as he has a great future and will boost Ibiza for the second part of the Smartbank League.
Diego Simeone believes that he needs to reinforce his defense and that is why he went in search of Matt Doherty. The player on loan from Tottenham arrives to fight for the position with the Argentine Nahuel Molina. The Irishman could provide Atlético de Madrid with greater defensive solidity than Molina is giving them today. El Cholo feels that the team is not going through a good moment and knows that to improve he must always do so from defense. Although Molina is the starter, Doherty will come to give a breather, both to the team and to the coach, La Liga adds a fantastic player who will show what he is made of.
Héctor Bellerín did not give Barcelona what was expected of him and that is why he will leave the institution to become a Sporting CP player. Although we all know Bellerín's qualities, he couldn't show it in the Culé team, which is why he decided to leave the club in search of minutes. Sporting wants to continue on its way in the Europa League and that is why they decided to take over the Spanish's services to reinforce their side. It will be nice to see Bellerín playing again, a player to recover. On the part of Barça, after the withdrawal of Piqué, and the sale of Memphis Depay and Bellerín, the team will end the season with a tight squad. Will he be able to keep the lead and opt to win the Europa League?
What a signing from Nottingham Forest, when nobody expected it Keylor Navas leaves Paris, to become a brand new reinforcement for the Premier League. Navas wants continuity and the Reds are looking to stay in first and why not, fight for the positions that will take them to a European Cup. We don't need to tell you what the Costa Rican goalkeeper is capable of, or do we? TOP recruitment for Nottingham.
And this is the review of the last day of transfers in a somewhat crazy winter market. And it is that many, like people, also leave everything for the last day and deliver the works on the horn. We are entering the last stretch of the season in Europe, in the coming months the titles and the future of many coaches will be decided. Which project will be the winner? Which teams will not meet their goals?
From Football Host we recommend you get off the sofa and buy a ticket or an experience to enjoy football in the best possible way, live, in the stadium, with a beer, making friends, hugging the first stranger you meet in the stands.
