The Premier League club spent up to £1.24 billion in the summer transfer window, but Crystal Palace Chairman Parish said this is a "very sluggish market", which may sound strange.
But he was right, although it sounds uncoordinated, after all, in this window, Bell, Ronaldo, Thiago, Thiago Silva, Werner and Havertz joined in succession, Cavani is also at the end. Time to vote, and England will remain Messi's most likely destination next year.
Before the deadline of 11 p.m. local time on Monday night, each team had a lot of buzzer operations. Although the total amount did not exceed the 1.4 billion pounds that Premier League clubs spent in the summer of 2019, in this era of raging new crown epidemic, It is still surprising that the cost of the summer transfer period in the last two years is so close.
This shows that despite the huge financial blow to football, the Premier League has not been affected to a certain extent. Its highly profitable broadcast contracts have allowed clubs to still invest large sums of money. It also shows that they need to make such investments. Maintain its position.
The 19-year-old defender Wesley Fofana transferred to Leicester City from the French Ligue 1 club St Etienne for £30 million. This transaction confirms the strong financial resources of English football and also shows that the same person is Compared with the French Ligue 1 in the top European league, the Premier League has a greater advantage.
19岁的后卫韦斯利·福法纳（Wesley Fofana）以3000万英镑的身价从法国联赛1俱乐部圣埃蒂安（St Etienne）转到莱斯特城。这项交易证实了英格兰足球的雄厚财力，也表明同一个人是欧洲顶级联赛中的法国联赛1，英超拥有更大的优势。
"There is no dispute about the choice between saving the club and employees and retaining Wesley." Saint-Etienne coach Puel said.
It is also worth noting that Aston Villa struggled to relegation in the first season of returning to the top league, but during the transfer period this summer, it invested heavily and signed Watkins (total transfer fees may reach 33 million Sterling) such a player. Despite the wealth of the club’s owner, this is still a considerable expenditure.
Lasting financial resources are not the only driving force. As usual, certain clubs have a certain degree of panic-no matter what they say-they are still worried that if they don't invest and spend money with fanfare, they will worry about the fans and will be thrown away by their opponents or unable to A firm foothold in the top league.
Parrish claimed that in the current market environment, "only state-owned or non-economically operated clubs can invest heavily", this statement may be true, although it may anger other Premier League club owners. Chelsea, which spent 226 million pounds, is owned by the Russian oligarch Abramovich who has billions of net worth; Manchester City, which has spent 141 million, is backed by the Abu Dhabi consortium. These seem to fit Parrish's definition. The spending of these two clubs alone is close to 30% of the Premier League summer signings.
Parrish’s words are reasonable because many transactions are either chaotic, protracted, or even impossible to complete. Some players are unwilling to transfer because of the epidemic, and clubs are unwilling to reduce their huge lineups because of the intensive schedule.
There was a saying that when the transfer window opened this summer, most transactions would be exchanged and leased, but this did not happen. Although Tottenham brought in Reggie Ron from Real Madrid for 27 million pounds and added a repurchase clause, some signs were revealed, but Manchester United's attempt to lease Thrall from Watford was rejected. An insider from the Watford club said: "We will not loan players to Manchester United."
Certain clubs, such as Manchester United, believe that in a different economic environment from the past, they can’t spend money lavishly as before. This also means that they will run into a wall. Some sellers, such as Dortmund, don’t think so at all and insist that the epidemic is coming. The previous valuation of Sancho was 108.7 million pounds.
Before the opening of the 10-week transfer window, someone put forward a point of view that the epidemic will reduce the cost of signings by 30%-the president of a Premier League club is full of expectations for the introduction of new players, and even optimistically declares, The reduction in signing fees will reach 50%.
This time the transfer market is indeed difficult. Or, to be more precise, the transfer market is extremely difficult for clubs that are not fully prepared or have never operated in a dominant position. When Klopp claimed that Liverpool were unlikely to bring in new aid, no one really believed him. As a result, the Red Army eventually won the world-class midfielder Thiago, the gorgeous winger Jota who has proven himself in the Premier League, and great potential. Smikas, spent more than 80 million pounds, and they sold players for 47 million pounds.
Compared with Manchester United’s strategic plan, the Red Devils considered issues far less thorough than the Red Army. They talked a lot about "cultural reconstruction", but they agreed to sign the 33-year-old free agent Cavani, and then witnessed the team at home. The defeat to Tottenham at 6 made the club panic.
Other teams that seem to have good deals include Everton, Arsenal-even if they had hoped to do more-and Newcastle, who have signed many local players to take advantage of the weaknesses of their opponents (relegated teams). To strengthen their lineup.
Interestingly, the Wolves once again transformed the team, again with the help of super agent Mendes.
Although the transfer window has been closed, but before October 16, Premier League clubs can still trade with low-level British clubs. This means that the panic (of the small team) may not be over yet.
