Premier League transfer news: Kroos to Man United, Aubameyang to Merseyside and more - 2nd January 2018
A day has already passed in the new year and the transfer mill hasn’t stopped churning some of the best and the most outrageous rumours that you may have never imagined. Today, however, has been a quieter-than-usual day as not may new players have been linked with new clubs.
But we can always count on outlets making news on Manchester United as their manager is visibly unhappy with the squad that he has—which automatically makes the Old Trafford outfit susceptible to these rumours.
Without further ado, here are some of the rumours of the day…
#5 Kongolo to Huddersfield almost done
It seems as though every Premier League club is beginning to understand the importance of a ball-playing defender. After all, they are the ones that start off attacks from the defensive half, which is why Huddersfield have targeted one of the most talented ball-playing defenders in France.
Terence Kongolo might not have had a great time at Monaco since joining the club. However, the club is aware of the ability that he possesses and, as a result, are willing to let him go only on loan, with Huddersfield being on the receiving end.
Huddersfield boss, David Wagner, has confirmed that the deal is close.
“I can confirm that we are approaching a deal,” he said.
“We are charmed by him, we know him and now we are going to see what will happen in the transfer period, I can not answer very concretely, but we are close and hopefully we can pull the deal off.”
