As always, the summer transfer window has offered nothing but excitement and shockers to football fans.
Just as the transfer window opens, the anticipation level of the fans rises tremendously. When the transfer window is closed, the fans get to share their opinions and preferences for players they want to see in their clubs.
If the fans’ voices are heard, then there is nothing more they would want and the following of the club rises even more. This is the time when the clubs can strengthen or loosen their bonds with the fans.
While the excitement level for the fans is too high due to their club’s connections and talks with other clubs for possible transfers, the most interesting topics are rumors.
The rumors play a huge role whether it is the transfer window or not. However, they have the potential of causing huge harm to the clubs or the players or work entirely the opposite way.
Now, we will be looking at the major transfers that have taken place in the Premier League as well as some interesting rumors. These rumors have a high possibility of becoming facts until the end of August.
Top Premier League Transfers
Here are the biggest transfers that have taken place in the Premier League clubs in the summer transfer window of 2022:
The biggest transfer in the current transfer window so far is of Darwin Nunez. Nunez is an Uruguayan footballer who is 23 years old and was previously playing as a striker for Benfica since 2020.
Nunez has transferred from Benfica to Liverpool for a whopping transfer fee of €100 million. The player has signed a 6-year contract with the club, which is to end in 2028.
The second largest transfer was of Erling Haaland from Dortmund to Manchester City. The 22-year-old is a Norwegian striker who had been playing for Dortmund since 2020.
The player has joined Manchester City at a transfer fee of €75 million. The player has signed a 5-year contract at Manchester City and it will end in 2027.
Richarlison de Andrade
The third largest transfer was of Brazilian forward Richarlison de Andrade. The player is 25 years of age and had been playing for Everton since 2018 until he transferred to Tottenham for €70 million.
The player has signed a 5-year contract with Tottenham, which is to end in 2027.
The rumors are surrounding Cristiano Ronaldo and Neymar Jr. suggesting the players may end up getting added to Chelsea’s squad.
Although Cristiano Ronaldo has denied such rumors his constant hint of leaving Manchester United is not letting the rumor die.
Then comes Neymar Jr. who seems to be having a hard time getting along with Kylian Mbappe any longer at PSG. As Mbappe is now the star player for the club and in his prime, while Neymar is 30 years, PSG is highly likely to keep Mbappe over Neymar.
Therefore, it is being suggested that PSG is looking for an offer from Chelsea so more details may unravel before the transfer window ends.
