It is the goal. This is the goal of the summer market at the top clubs in European football. This is the main objective. It is evident by the fact that some of the top players, such as Erling Haland, Sadio Manne, Gabriel Jesus and Romelu Lukaku, have already switched teams while July is still starting. They are the first pieces of the puzzle, and they will be the ones that make the most of the domino effect. This position promises strong emotions until September 2, when the summer window closes.
It was just the beginning of the season. The decisive moment of this course was May 10. Manchester City announced in style the blow to the table on May 10. The "skyblues" reached an agreement for 60 million euros with Erling Haaland, Borussia Dortmund and the Norwegian Premier League until June 2027. It was a masterful move. The crack was signed at a fair price and the goal position was added. Pep Guardiola's desperate search for a different factor to end his entire offensive current is gone.
This transfer was the start of Tetris and European football. Borussia Dortmund was put on the market by Karim Adeyemi (a 20-year-old footballer from RB Salzburg) for 30 million euros. He scored 23 goals and 7 assists last year in 43 games. The Rhine-Ruhr club signed the Nigerian with Haaland. Similar club of origin, same price, and great projection to regain a piece of the market in the medium and long term.
Both of these operations have been able to maintain continuity in the Bundesliga, with a Bayern Munich that has stepped in for Robert Lewandowski if he decides to leave Bavarians to fulfill his public wish to join Barca. Sadio Mane was the one selected by Herbert Hainer, who is expected to bring joy to Julian Naggelsmann with a 32 million euro signing. Eintracht Frankfurt has signed Lucas Alario from Bayer Leverkusen for eight million.
This '9' market has the bomb in the Premier League. It was City with Haaland that detonated it first, but Liverpool didn't want to lose out in the rivalry they have maintained over recent years and signed Darwin Nunez. After Benfica paid 75 million euros, the 23-year old Uruguayan footballer was the second-most expensive signing in the history of the'reds. After scoring 34 goals in 41 games, the striker from Artigas arrives at Anfield with the mission to make Sadio Mane forget about him and bring the colors of Uruguay back to fashion, just as Luis Suarez did in Liverpool's streets.
They are not the only movement of the Premier. The Premier is a 'London calling' as The Clash would put it. This call has to do the goal. Tottenham's attack has been completed by Richarlison. Richarlison is a footballer who knows English football well and now wants to find the right club. It is believed that the team headed by Antonio Conte, an Italian footballer, has paid Everton 60 million euros. They will need to find a spot for Richarlison at the point-of-attack along with two figures the size of Harry Kane or Heung Min Son. In the capital, Arsenal signed Gabriel Jesus for 52 "kilos" and Chelsea opened the doors to Romelu Lukaku, who was loaned to Inter Milan by Chelsea a year ago. Tuchel's team is now searching for a guarantee player to fill the spot of the Belgian.
Although the summer market is still long and there are nearly two months left, many forwards have already taken steps to make a change. Robert Lewandowski and Cristiano Ronaldo stand out as two players who have communicated with Manchester United and Bayern Munich about their desire to move clubs. Barcelona is waiting for the Pole, while the Portuguese has already attracted the attention of Chelsea, Naples and Bayern, as well as Sporting de Portugal, where the Madeiran started to make his legend nearly two decades ago. The "9" market is boiling.
