Lower than every week into the summer transfer window and a few of the Premier League’s biggest sides have already blockbuster deals, while others are working on statement signings of their very own. The likes of Liverpool, Manchester United and Leeds United remain hard at work, within the knowledge that getting business done early can often save cold, hard money.
Liverpool stole the show yesterday by announcing the arrival of Darwin Nunez for an initial £64million. If add-ons are triggered, he’ll develop into their record signing, and with Sadio Mane expected to make way over the approaching weeks, the Uruguayan might be under pressure to supply quick results.
Man Utd’s window is yet to run so easily, with Barcelona still playing hardball over the services of Frenkie de Jong. The Dutchman stays a priority goal for Erik ten Hag, however the Red Devils have also submitted a proposal for fellow midfielder Christian Eriksen, who is offered on a free transfer.
Leeds, meanwhile, have been mightily busy. Jesse Marsch has already welcomed two recent faces, and while a deal has reportedly been agreed for a 3rd, the Whites hierarchy are already attending to work on a fourth signature.
