Another blog on the summer transfer window and I’ve got a few transfers I’ve got to talk about.
Leonardo Bonucci from Juventus to AC Milan for €42,000,000
On 14 July 2017, Bonucci was signed by Milan on a five-year contract for a €42 million fee, subject to a successful medical check.
Opinions: With new owners coming into the club and money is coming in. AC Milan are bring in players that will bring them back the glory days. Bonucci is one of those players that every club needs, because he’s one of the best defenders in the world and he’s a leader. I think it’s a really good signing and hope Milan will go back to the top.
Hakan Çalhanoğlu from Bayer 04 to AC Milan for €20,000,000
Çalhanoğlu signed a 4-year contract with Serie A club Milan. He was then handed the number 10 jersey, last worn by Keisuke Honda, and famously worn by notable former Milan players such as Clarence Seedorf, Rui Costa, Dejan Savićević and Ruud Gullit.
Opinions: Another addition to the squad and it’s the Turkish wizard and every club was trying to get his signature and AC Milan won his signature. He’s god a excellent touch, dribbling skills and he’s a set piece specialist and finally he’s got unbelievable vision to find players in space. I think if AC Milan are in the group stage of the Europa League, they are favourites to win it.
Tiemoue Bakayoko from AS Monaco to Chelsea for £40,000,000
Chelsea have signed midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko from French champions Monaco in a reported £40m deal. The 22-year-old France international has signed a five-year deal with the Premier League champions.
Opinions: This is the player that Chelsea have been linked with for a long time and it’s finally happen. Bakayoko was key to Monaco winning the French league and reaching the Semi-Final of the Champions League. He’s strong, good with the ball and I think he can partner with Kante. This means Nemanja Matic is out the door with Man United and Juventus who wants him.
Kyle Walker from Tottenham to Manchester City for £45,000,000
Manchester City have completed the signing of Tottenham and England right-back Kyle Walker for an initial £45m. Walker, who has 27 caps and spent eight seasons at Spurs has signed a five-year deal with City. The deal, which comes to £50m including £5m of add-ons, could make him the most expensive English player ever.
Opinions: In my opinion Kyle Walker is nowhere near worth £45m because he’s one of those full backs who looks good going forward but he’s not really good when defending. But maybe Pep can work with him and prove me wrong but we will see.
