Every week in the summer of 2023, transfer digests were published on Sports.ru – an understanding of fresh deals with optics for players. Now that the market is closed, let’s analyze the summer purchases from the perspective of top clubs.
To date, sports betting has acquired the status of a cult pastime for millions of sports fans around the world. With certain knowledge and skills, they bring breathtaking income.
In most states, such entertainment is legal and regulated by supervisory authorities. With the emergence of online bookmakers, financial manipulations have become much easier and more accessible.
Over the past twenty years, many well-known companies have chosen to work on the Internet, offering to predict the outcome of a football and basketball match, tennis and athletics in a remote format. Here are some bookmakers in Bangladesh.
How the transfer window turned out: City bought players for 250 million, sold them together with their students for 150 million, but inside the club they consider the most important thing to be the retention of Kyle Walker and Bernardo Silva.
Both wanted to leave after the treble: Kyle – due to the fact that he stopped getting into the first team, Bernardo – in principle, has been looking towards Barcelona for a long time. City’s position of “letting go of those who don’t want to stay” has not gone away, but this time they made an exception.
Guardiola even took Walker to a restaurant to convince him to stay, and a compensation clause was included in the new contract with Bernardo (if anything, Joan Laporta, less than 60 million).
Only Ilkay Gundogan could not be held back. The midfielder recently admitted that City entered negotiations on a new contract too late. This is a loss – Ilkay cannot be replaced directly. They will try to distribute some of his qualities between Mateo Kovacic and Mateus Nunez.
Arsenal spent more than 200 million without upgrading the base, but at the same time made the clip much deeper.
Right now, Kai Havertz is no stronger than Xhaka, who left after his best season at the club. Declan Rice is a great destroyer, but does not yet understand the requirements of possession, which is why he looks worse than Thomas Partey last year in a similar role.
Jurrien Timber was already broken, but even initially he was taken as an extremely versatile reserve. David Raya is cool, but for now he sits under the far from flawless Aaron Ramsdale – at best, this is stubborn competition, but not a clear upgrade.
For a moment it seemed that United would take players into key positions before the start of pre-season. It turned out exactly half: the deal for Mount was quickly closed, Onana arrived in the first days of the foreign tour. Hejlund was bought at the beginning of August, but due to injury he only recently became fully involved.
It is important that Onana arrived so early – with him, United received a powerful improvement in the buildup: when playing, Andre is not afraid to rise to the defenders, thus breaking the opponent’s pressure. His transfer raised the overall assessment of the entire transfer campaign – yes, he is so important, even if the implementation of his plans is still damp.
The categories “bad” and “good” do not apply. In the first month, Liverpool were ranked 10th. The transfers of Alexis McAllister and Dominik Szoboszlai were quickly processed. Ideal players for Jurgen Klopp’s system. In the crisis zone of last season. They arrive before the start of the preseason.
The team was preparing for the new season with the center Fabinho, Mac Allister, Szoboszlai. Negotiations gradually progressed for young Romeo Lavia, who could spend the season adapting, learning from Fabinho, and replacing him in case of injuries. Sounds great, right?
Then everything went wrong. The Saudis came for Fabinho and Jordan Henderson. Hendo is a loss as a leader, but given his age, current level and salary, Liverpool are unlikely to be too upset. But they clearly weren’t going to lose Fabinho.
