The summer transfer window is done and dusted and as the dust settles, we can’t but highlight which transfers made most sense and will likely yield desired results.
Here are 5 of such moves that are bound to produce great outputs.
Bravo to Manchester City
Goalkeepers make an integral part of Pep Guardiola’s team. Not like they don’t with other coaches, but the Catalan’s style of play requires a goalie who’s comfortable with the ball at his feet.
And Claudio Bravo perfectly fits that bill. Not only is he good with his legs on the ball, he is also a 5-star custodian of the goal.
Barcelona have him thank for their last La Liga exploits as he was responsible for helping them keep some clean sheets when they laboured to some one-nil and one-margin victories.
He sure can replicate such form in City colours as they attempt to win the EPL title this term.
Kante to Chelsea
The tireless French defensive midfield machine helped Leicester City’s to a surprise title win last season and quickly became a subject of various transfer speculations as a result.
Chelsea beat a couple of top sides to his signature as the player was keen to link up with the Blues coach Antonio Conte.
That move will definitely do the team well this season as they launch a stiff title challenge.
His ability to protect the back four and create enough free space for his midfield partners to link up with the attack as a result of his shielding style of play is equivalent to none.
Chelsea have a chance at a title shot because of the influence Kante wields.
Paco Alcacer to Barcelona
The young Spain international agreed a 5-year deal with Barcelona despite spending all his youth career at Valencia and becoming an icon at the side.
Given that he gave up regular football for life as 2nd fiddle to Barcelona’s MSN attacking trio, many won’t agree it was a wise career move for the 23-year-old, but he sure has a chance to up his game and become a far better player.
Already considered good enough to back up to any of the trio, his quality will come to Barcelona’s rescue off the bench and when fatigue catches up with any of them.
Barcelona did well by getting such player and it will sure pay off eventually.
Pogba to Manchester United
The world most expensive player of all time has already shown what he’s able to do in just 2 league games for the Red Devils. And as he settles into life in the EPL, more can be expected of him.
The box-to-box midfield ace will help provide needed defensive and attacking cover for the team and that has been lacking for a while now within the team’s rank.
His performances and contributions in the long run could make him the best signing of the summer at the end of the season.
Pogba is that good.
Zlatan to Manchester United
The 34-year-old has enough goals in his legs to help fire Manchester United to a title win this season and his 3 strikes in as many EPL fixtures say it all.
His leadership abilities will also rub off on the club’s youngsters as they can learn a lot from the veteran forward.
The free signing can actually be of more contributions to the team and league than other signings that combined to make the €1.4 Billion spent on EPL transfers this season.
