The grand festival of transfers is now concluded and almost every club has done a great business this time around. 13 out of 20 Premier League clubs broke their own transfer record and some mouth-watering moves have also been concluded. The urgency of some top class players in the Premier League can be clearly seen as the Emirates outfit, Arsenal, has spent nearly 100 million this time around.
Liverpool have signed seven new players, yet they are having their troubles. Furthermore, the other club London, Chelsea, made some last minute moves as they signed two players on the deadline day. The arch rivals, Manchester City, have done an impressive biz under their new manager, and then there is Manchester United. The Red half spent humungous cash this time around as well, as they brought Paul Pogba from Juventus and with that, the manager completed his promise of bringing in four new players.
Well, quite surprisingly, no player from the senior squad left the squad, but many youngsters left either on loan or on a permanent basis and after the window, the manager stated that he is happy with the boys, yet we believe that there should have been some players, who should have been sold and here are three of them.
The 20-year-old has been recently sent out on loan to the Championship side Derby County and many faithful says that he will be a perfect candidate for the future prospect. The English U-21 international made his debut for the Reds back in 2014 and marked the occasion with two goals in a 3-1 victory over Hull City.
The 20-year-old indeed is a great finisher, but is he really a Jose Mourinho quality? Well, to be perfectly honest here, we do not really think that way, and the reason being; he isn’t the most prolific striker in the sport. He does have his pros, but he will always be 3rd or 4th choice striker for Jose, and in that case, he will just warm the bench and that will stall his progress, hence, we personally believe that he should have been sold rather than being loaned out.
Many might argue over his name in the list, but ask yourself; is he really that quality now he used to be? He indeed is a team player and just for the sake of it, he turned himself into a left back and maybe this season as well, he will be used as a cover for Luke Shaw and Marcos Rojo. The 31-year-old is known for his crossing ability; hence, he can be fruitful personnel, but then again, do Mourinho have enough room?
Besides the fullback spot, the English international is a threat while deployed on the wings, but there again he has a stiff competition from the likes of Memphis Depay, Jesse Lingard, Marcus Rashford. All in all, the former Aston Villa man should have been sold on a mutual consent.
If not Ashley Young, then Manchester United should have sold the former Sporting Lisbon defender, Marcos Rojo. The 26-year-old Argentine started his United career brightly, but he eventually dipped his form and that costs the team one way or the other. The left back cum central defender only made 22 Premier League appearances and the following season and reluctant as well, as he only managed 16 Premier League appearances and the reason being; his inability to adapt the Premier League.
Just like others, he too has his pros, but since his arrival at the Theatre of Dreams, he has failed to put his mark in front of the spectators and letting him leave wouldn’t have cost much to United. You may be surprised that Bastian isn’t on the list, that’s because the German international himself stated that he won’t leave and the Theatre of Dreams would be his last destination in Europe.
