These are the ten most expensive transfers made until January 31, with 324.900.000 euros being played on the football stock market. We can say that the clubs that decided to invest in winter were stingy to pay to be strengthened.
Chelsea are the team that made the most "brilliant" deal, buying Christian Pulisic from Dortmund for 64.000.000 euros. Of course, we will see the American footballer from next season in the Premier League, as he remained on loan to the Germans until the summer.
Second on the list is Leandro Paredes, who was acquired by Paris Saint-Germain. Zenith, who sold it to the French, put the amount of 45.000.000 euros into her funds. The third most expensive transcript is of Chinese origin and relates to Paulinio's move from Barcelona to Fabio Cannavaro's Guangzhou Taobao with 42.000.000 euros.
Let's go to Italy, where the fourth most expensive ballad performs. We are talking about the Brazilian Package that cost Milan 35.000.000 euros. The 21-year-old's previous team was Flamengo. And the fifth transfer of the list belongs to the "Rossoneri". The Italian club spent another 35.000.000 euros to strengthen the attack with Christoph Piatek. The sixth, seventh and eighth most expensive transfers of the Winter are found in England and even by teams that are not in the front line.
Benitez's Newcastle got Miguel Almiron with 24.000.000 euros, Bournemouth got Solanke from Liverpool with 21.200.000 euros and Wolves Castle with 20.500.000 euros. Ninth, it's Taliska. The Brazilian became Pauline's teammate in China, with his team compensating Benfica for 19.200.000 euros.
In the tenth place is a transcript belonging to a German team. It is Amadu Haidara who now belongs to Leipzig. The cost of moving from Salzburg reached 19.000.000 euros.
The only country that can "spoil" the above list, by changing the balances, is that of China. The Chinese are free to buy until February 28, so they have 26 days ahead of them to shake the bank. Otherwise, make an appointment in the summer.
In Galatasaray Mitroglu!
Costas Mitroglou will probably stay out of the Galatasaray games, in view of the games with Benfica, as the "eagles" retain 50% of the rights of the international team. Galatasaray faces Benfica in the "32" of the Europa League. Costas Mitroglou, whom the Turkish team acquired on loan from Marseille for 1,5 years, will probably not be in the selections of Fatih Terim.
Not because he is not ready to fight, but because Benfica still holds 50% of international striker's rights and there has been a deal between the clubs. Mitroglu did his first training with Galata on Friday (1 / 2) and made himself available to Fatih Terim for Saturday's match (2 / 2) with George Tzavella's Alanispor.
Qatar wrote history!
Qatar defeated Japan 3-1 to win the Asian Cup 2019. This was the first title ever won by the country's national team to host the 2022 World Cup. Qatar made history. In the final of the Asian Cup 2019 held at the "Zayed Sports City Stadium" in Abu Dhabi, it prevailed 3-1 over Japan and won the trophy for the first time in its history. It is characteristic that the Qataris have never in the past gone beyond the quarterfinals of the institution, while the "samurai" had won the title four times.
