The 2021/2022 summer transfer market officially ended some time ago. With this, no club can bring in or sell players until the winter transfer window opens. During the 2 months the summer transfer window opened, there were a lot of rumors going on.
Interestingly, some of the top transfer rumors did not happen until the end of the transfer market this summer. Who do you think are the players included in the transfer rumors? Let’s see the explanation.
Jules Koundé – Seville
Jules Koundé is one of Chelsea’s main targets besides Romelu Lukaku. After getting the services of Lukaku from Inter Milan, Chelsea tried to bring in Jules Koundé from Sevilla. Unfortunately, Sevilla will only release the French player at a price of 80 million euros or the equivalent of 1.35 trillion rupiah.
On the other hand, Chelsea also want to increase their ammunition in midfield by bringing in Saul Niguez from Atletico Madrid. Sevilla’s request could not be fulfilled by Chelsea so the agreement never happened until the end of the transfer market this summer.
Anthony Martial – Manchester United
The sudden arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo is not good news for Anthony Martial. The reason, Ronaldo made Anthony Martial’s position at Manchester United very threatened. Anthony Martial is reportedly set to move ahead of the close of the transfer market this summer.
Unfortunately, Anthony Martial is still staying at Manchester United this season and is believed to be a shadow of Ronaldo and Cavani after the international break. Previously, Anthony Martial was linked with two top clubs, namely Everton and Inter Milan, as reported by the Manchester Evening News . Even so, the two clubs did not seem to make an offer for Manchester United for Martial.
Miralem Pjanic – Barcelona
New Juventus coach, Massimiliano Allegri, reportedly wants a reunion with Miralem Pjanic who is a Barcelona player. Therefore, there is news that Juventus will do panic buying for Pjanic. Barcelona are also rumored to want to release Pjanic given the club is experiencing a financial crisis.
Unfortunately, there is no agreement between Juventus and Barcelona regarding the transfer of Miralem Pjanic. The player from Bosnia-Herzegovina is believed to be a cover for Frenkie de Jong and Pedri this season.
Callum Hudson-Odoi – Chelsea
Callum Hudson-Odoi is reportedly interested in several clubs, such as Leicester City and Bayern Munich in the transfer market this summer. The arrival of Romelu Lukaku has made his position at Chelsea even more complicated. Rumors of a move from the English player strengthened ahead of the end of the close of the transfer market this summer.
There is no agreement whatsoever between Callum Hudson-Odoi and another club so he remains a Chelsea player this season. Callum Hudson-Odoi is believed to be getting a few minutes of playing given the tight competition in the Chelsea squad.
