World News – GB – Transfer Deadline Day: News, rumors, signings across Europe

It’s much later than usual, but the transfer deadline day has finally arrived in Europe’s top leagues

Oct 5 has been circled on the calendar for some time as a temporary day the window is closed in this most abnormal year The Window has seen many stars change addresses – and the biggest of all Lionel Messi stays put despite wishes to the contrary – but there is still time for another bomb or two to happen and set the stage for the rest of the 2020-21 seasons

Biggest names reported to still be in the showcase (even despite claims from some clubs to the contrary) as time goes on include Jadon Sancho (Borussia Dortmund); Ousmane Dembele and Jean Clair Todibo (Barcelona); Memphis Depay and Houssem Aouar (Lyon); Eric Garcia (Manchester City); Thomas Partey (Atletico Madrid); Lucas Torreira (Arsenal); Alex Telles (Porto); Douglas Costa (Juventus); Federico Chiesa (Fiorentina); Milan Skriniar (Inter Milan); Amad Traoré (Atalanta); Declan Rice (western ham); Antonio Rudiger and Tiemoue Bakayoko (Chelsea); Theo Walcott (Everton); Gerard Deulofeu (Watford); and Luka Jovic (Real Madrid)

As for some of the clubs that still have business to do, here are some of the bigger questions that need answers:

United are reeling from a 6-1 loss to Tottenham and haven’t looked very good overall despite entering the season with aspirations to return to the top of the Premier League This is no secret why: the defense is messy, and more reinforcements are needed Donny van de Beek’s signing was brilliant, and it looks like Edinson Cavani (free agent) will fill the need for another striker while the left-back Alex Telles joins Porto, but will there be panic buying in light of the heavy loss? It must be all a little frustrating for United fans to see the needs elsewhere, to have a window spent wooing but never really getting close to signing Jadon Sancho, and then fighting in the final hours

Arsenal are said to be interested in landing central midfielder Thomas Partey but it will take the trigger of his $ 58 8million release clause, Atletico Madrid will not budge for anything less for their Ghana international of 27 This amount of spending is in direct conflict with the club’s current financial situation, which involved the cutting of 55 jobs in August and the elimination of its mascot, Gunnersaurus Matteo Guendouzi is reportedly on his way to Hertha Berlin on loan, but if Arsenal are serious about landing at Partey he will have to pay

Barcelona’s squad churn rate has been significant, with Luis Suarez, Ivan Rakitic, Arturo Vidal and Nelson Semedo leaving Camp Nou The club are clearly looking to move forward while rejuvenating in several positions It’s done by adding Sergiño Dest from the United States and giving the keys to Ansu Fati, Trincão and others, but there is still work to be done With the club needing to sell to buy, Memphis Depay and Eric Garcia’s moves are on hold unless Ousmane Dembele and Jean Clair Todibo can be sold

Memphis and Houssem Aouar generated a lot of interest, and for a while it seemed inevitable that the two would leave after Lyon’s run to the Champions League semi-finals Aouar, it seems, will stay, having said so after Sunday’s draw Marseille in which he scored from a penalty spot Memphis, however, has long accepted personal terms with Barcelona It’s just a question of whether the Spanish power can raise the funds to act in time

It was a sales season for Real Madrid, with Gareth Bale and James Rodriguez finally showing the door and Sergio Reguilon and Achraf Hakimi also unloaded Martin Odegaard was called up after his loan to Real Sociedad, but otherwise it was eerily calm at the Bernabeu Do Florentino Perez and Zinedine Zidane think their squad is good enough as is? Or are the financial impacts of the pandemic hitting the world’s most valuable club hard? There’s a shocking amount of restraint on the part of the Spanish capital, but it may be the prelude to a big splash next summer, when things – presumably and hopefully – are on more stable ground.
