Hey guys what's up another post here and today I'm going to be writing a long piece about my personal expectations for summer transfers, this does not mean I know for certain where players are going or even if the clubs I mention will even buy or sell it's based purely on my opinion.
Man City first and why not since they've already spent over £450,000,000 on players over the last 3 seasons. With them guaranteeing a spot in the Champions League next season it's almost a certainty that they will be wanting to build on their already impressive squad. Since they already have every position covered well it is not clear where they would prefer to strengthen but with the talk of Kaka, Iniesta, Xavi and other class midfielders it seems the most likely place they would like to strengthen would their midfield.
Man United next and with Champions League guaranteed as well as winning the title they already seem to have a very strong side, the only concern is the age issue. Van der Sar has already confirmed his desire to retire from football at the end of the season and Scholes is also unsure whether or not he will stay. This means that they will have to look for a top class keeper - perhaps Neur? and possibly a hardened midfielder, such as De Rossi who fits the bill perfectly.
Arsenal had a poor season this year in terms of yet again not winning anything. This has been an issue for Wenger for some time now and it could be the Manager that gets replaced. The Arsenal squad although young and full of talent hasn't got the backbone that other top teams possess to challenge for trophies. What I mean by this is that they need a solid keeper (and have needed one for some time now) as well as a reliable centreback to partner Vermealen, perhaps Subotic?, a holding midfielder and possibly a goal-poacher to come in for the injury-prone Van Persie.
Chelsea has already spent £77,000,000 in January which leaves them having to make up for that loss by selling if they want to comply with FIFA's fair play rules, meaning that if they do not make up for this they won't be elegible for European football. For Chelsea to win more trophies it is clear that what they need is a reliable right back to takeover from the ever-stagnating Bosingwa, as well as this Chelsea's strikeforce (Anelka, Drogba, Torres) is ageing and currently out-of-form which could mean they replace one or two of these in summer - Lukaku being my suggestion.
Liverpool finally. Since taking over from Roy Hodgson Kenny Dalglish has revamped Liverpool fc with added life almost doubling the previous managers winning record in the space of just a few months. Added to this Liverpool have been taken over by Fenway Sports Group who also own the Boston Red Sox and they have pledged to invest in Liverpool's future, by bringing in young-talent for the years to come. It has also been hinted that as many as 5 first team worthy players will be added to summer. The places needed to be strengthened are Left back, Centreback, holding Midfield and both wings. There has already been an agreement for Sylvain Merveaux to join and interest from Liverpool has been announced by Marin, Sanchez, Hazard, Young and others.
Thanks for reading.
