Three Big Teams Hard at Work
This year the transfer season has been a busy time for the managers of teams in the Barclays Premier League and it has been very interesting to say the least. The main talking point has to be Suarez. Is he leaving? Is he staying? On the 13th July 2014 the deal was sealed. Luis Suarez signed a new contract with FC Barcelona for an astonishing price of 75 million pounds.
Chelsea and Jose Mourinho have been busy buying plenty of new players to improve their already brilliant squad. Jose has also signed two top players from the talented Spanish league Liga BBVA. He has signed Cesc Fabregas from FC Barcelona for a large price of £36 million.
Mourinho has also signed Diego Costa from Athletico Madrid for £40 million. He will be a good addition to the South West London team and was definitely one to watch out for last year in the Spanish league. Whether his flair and precision makes the trip to England and Chelsea with him are yet to find out. In total the Spanish man scored 27 goals in the 2013/2014 season.
Manchester United has also been hard at work during the transfer window signing some new players to join the already successful united team. So far they have took a hefty chunk out of their large transfer budget paying for a young left back from Southampton. 19 year old Luke Shaw was called up for England representation in this years eventful World Cup held in Brazil. Whilst he was there he gained his third cap for his country. Shaw cost the club 27m and Van Gaal thinks he will be a great addition to the club.
The Manchester club have also had their eye on other players but with more experience. Louis Van Gaal has his beady eyes on Matt Hummels of Borussia Dortmand and Vidal of Juventus. However, their fate still lies in Van Gaal’s hands.
