As the new season began last week, the final moments of the transfer window are about to unfold right in front of our eyes. Clubs are still looking for a piece that perfectly fits into the puzzle. Players who can turn their fortunes in a relentless quest for silverware. Every summer bay brings in a lot of surprises and this time it might have just surpassed every single one. Football clubs are willing to go beyond their limits to attract their targets. Every year history repeats itself and this time the narrative hasn’t changed that much. Still, ten days are left for the first window to reach its climax. Here are the top three transfers from this transfer window:
1) Lionel Messi (Free Agent) to PSG: A player who was expected to see his career end with his boyhood club. The fairy tale was supposed to end with the Spanish side and the falls of the curtains were supposed to mark the end of a beautiful journey. However, things often do not turn out to be as expected or planned. A perfect end to the journey was not in the fate of the Argentinian sensation. Now, he is on the brink of starting a new journey in foreign lands, looking to silence his critics who often questioned his quality in any other league. Re-united with his national and former teammates Messi will be focusing to dominate Ligue 1. With a roughly weekly wage of 1.13 million Pounds, Messi becomes the highest-paid football player in the history of the game.
2) Jack Grealish, Aston Villa to Manchester City: Man City shattered the English transfer fee record to sign a young English attacker Jack Grealish. With a sum of 100 million Pounds, Jack Grealish became the record signing of the Premier League. Marking his debut with Aston Villa at the tender age of 18 years, Grealish has come a long way. Grealish isn’t a natural goal scorer but relies on his ability to create chances with his quick movement inside the box. The English winger is going to take up Aguero’s number, trying to live up to the legacy he left at Manchester City. Aguero has left a huge void after his departure. Grealish with his play caught the eye of Pep Guardiola, who became a huge admirer of the Englishman. Grealish will have to work hard and produce consistent performance to fill this void. With his experience in Premier League, it won’t take him time to settle down in Man City’s star squadron.
3) Romelu Lukaku, Inter Milan to Chelsea: Lukaku has been the talk of the town for a couple of seasons. His attacking mentality, sharpness in the final third, first touch, and clinical finishing take him in a league of his own. Lukaku was a major target for many clubs for the past two weeks. Chelsea managed to bring their old prodigy back to Stamford Bridge for 97.5 million Pounds. After Werner failed to live up to his Bundesliga status, it wasn’t a surprise to see Chelsea going in for another striker. The club from West London is the potential title contender for the current season. Lukaku is like a train that can’t be derailed from its tracks. He strengthens Chelsea’s chances in the English League as well as their hopes to retain UEFA Champions League as well.
