Tuesday’s January transfer deadline day didn’t disappoint. There were quite a few massive deals in the final moments of the window. Chelsea acquiring Enzo Fernandez and Arsenal’s purchase of Jorginho headlined the day of transfers. However, there were quite a bit of transfers that occurred on Tuesday.
Joao Cancelo – Manchester City to Bayern Munich (loan, $76 million buy option). In one of the most surprising moves of the window, Cancelo is now a Bayern player. The relationship between player and City manager Pep Guardiola appeared to sour, which paved the way for the massive move.
Marcel Sabitzer – Bayern Munich to Manchester United (loan, no buy option). The Red Devils had to move quickly to get a replacement for the injured Christian Eriksen. The Dane will be out of action for a few months due to an ankle injury. Sabitzer goes to United on a straight loan deal until the end of the season.
Pedro Porro – Sporting to Spurs (initial loan, $49 million permanent move in summer). It’s been clear that Antonio Conte has wanted a new right back and he finally gets his man. Matt Doherty and Djed Spence both moved away from the north London club on loan due to Porro’s arrival.
Vitinha – Braga to Marseille ($32 million). Although a move to Southampton was in the cards, the Portuguese striker opted to go to Marseille instead. Vitinha scored 13 total goals this season for the second-placed Primeira Liga side. The French club was able to jump to the front of the line by offered Braga more money than the player’s actual release clause.
Kamaldeen Sulemana – Rennes to Southampton ($27 million). The pacy winger has opted to join the Saints over Everton. Southampton needed to make a splash in the January transfer window and broke their bank to get him. The last-placed Premier League club also signed Paul Onuachu from Genk as well.
Keylor Navas – Paris Saint-Germain to Nottingham Forest (loan, no buy option). The three-time Champions League winner will now head to mid-table Forest for the remainder of the season. Dean Henderson, Forest’s first-choice keeper, is currently sidelined with a thigh problem. Navas will now slot in between the sticks for the East Midlands club.
Hamed Traore – Sassuolo to Bournemouth (initial loan, mandatory $32 million summer transfer). The Cherries made some fairly significant deals this month. They add Traore to signings Ilya Zabarnyi, Dango Ouattara, Antoine Semenyo, and Matias Vina. The Ivory Coast international can play multiple positions in midfield.
Ayoze Perez – Leicester City to Real Betis (loan, no buy option). Another move that essentially came out of nowhere. Perez has found it difficult to get playing time during the current campaign, particularly in Premier League play. Leicester bringing in Tete on loan from Shakhtar Donetsk surely only made matters worse for the Spaniard.
Diego Llorente – Leeds to Roma (loan, $19 million buy option). The Spanish defender has spent two-and-a-half seasons with the Premier League side. Leeds brought in central defender Max Wober earlier in the transfer window and signed Diogo Monteiro on deadline day to help fill Llorente’s void.
