The transfer window has opened as of the 1st of January, and all football fans know what that means…
Yes, it is not the New Year’s Eve that is so very special for those who like to bet on sports , but it is the beginning of the new transfer window. Of course, opening the transfer window gives source to dozens of interesting, and sometimes even impossible winter transfer rumours.
However, some of them actually turn out to be true even though they seem unbelievable at first. GamingZion aimed to collect the most interesting pieces of these rumours for the upcoming few weeks. Who is going to change clubs, where are they planning to go to, what are their possibilities in their next steps? Let’s see!
Dortmund cancel Januzaj loan
Borussia Dortmund and Manchester United have agreed on terms, the two sides are cancelling the loan contract of United’s youngster Adnan Januzaj. The Belgian will return to Manchester United as he failed to make an impact in the German team.
Januzaj participated in 16 games in Borussia Dortmund, but the attacking midfielder has not scored a single goal during these games. He played on 160 minutes in the Bundesliga, and have not started in any game of the above mentioned championship.
Drogba ready to make another Chelsea return
Didier Drogba is one of the greatest legends in the history of FC Chelsea. The Ivorian striker has become world famous at the London-based side and he has been the supporter’s favourite ever since. The 37-year-old has come back to Chelsea once for the season 2014-15 and according to online gambling sites in UK, now he might be joining the Blues again.
However, this time he would not be part of the players’ squad – he would be helping GuusHiddink’s work! However, Drogba sent a message on twitter about the fact that he has not yet announced his retirement from football, so maybe people should not wait for him to become a coach just yet…
Klopp is searching for a defender
According to bet on sports in the UK, Jürgen Klopp wants to strengthen the defensive third of Liverpool. Hence, he would be willing to spend a fortune on a quality defender. Klopp’s job is also hardened by lots of injuries, due to which he needs to bring in new players so that he can work with a full squad and can actually count on his players.
On the other hand, the German media also says that the football expert wants to purchase players from his home country. Borussia Mönchengladbach’s defensive midfielder, Grant Xhaka is linked with a move to Liverpool as well as Arsenal. Whichever team should be capable of buying him, they will have to pay a relatively high amount – according to the latest rumours, ‘Gladbach expects an offer of at least GBP 37 million for the 23-year-old.
Isco deal to City was torpedoed by sacking Benítez?
Rafael Benítez did not get on well with many of the players at Real Madrid, that was more than obvious. The Spaniard got into a fight with Ramos, Cristiano Ronaldo and James as well, just to mention a few of the greatest stars. In addition, according to the Spanish media, Isco didn’t like his methods either. Moreover, the attacking midfielder was punished after being caught laughing at his own team and his manager when Real Madrid conceded a goal.
We will never find out if these news were real or just useless rumours, but they definitely seemed to have been real. Manchester City even offered a bid for Real Madrid’s young talent which might have even been accepted, should Rafa have remained Real’s manager. However, a few days ago Florentino Pérez sacked another one of his great ideas, and appointed Zinedine Zidane, who is likely to count on Isco so City’s offer is definitely refused – for now!
