Hello Rank Squad, and Happy New Year!
The transfer window is only a few days old, and yet plenty of clubs have already got themselves involved in the mire – with some big names already having shifted on to horizons new. We take a look at five deals already complete and dig into the analysis of whether they’re good, bad, indifferent or important. We talk Max Wöber to Leeds United, David Datro Fofana to Chelsea, Cody Gakpo to Liverpool, Matheus Cunha to Wolverhampton Wanderers and Cristiano Ronaldo’s move to Al-Nassr in Saudi Arabia, giving them the Ranks treatment.
No Things We Love this week, because there’s an incomplete transfer impending that’s hogging the headlines, with reports stating that Argentine World Cup winner, young player of the tournament and Benfica midfielder Enzo Fernandez is set to join Chelsea in a deal that would make him the most expensive player in Premier League history. We dive deeper into why they want him, why he’s going to cost so much, and our thought on the deal as a whole.
Plus, there’s a (slightly obvious) Melon of the Week, and given the time of year, a Gibberish Ranking where Sam shares his New Year’s resolutions with you all.
