Top 5 transfers that have gone under the radar
Nowadays we live in the era where paying £50 million for a player doesn’t even raise an eyebrow. In the days where inflation in the transfer market is at its zenith, it is a skill and art to secure a bargain deal for a player of some genuine quality.
Player acquisition is no longer a simple business proposition but a barometer of the skill and the acumen of the football administrators. From fulfilling the manager’s expectations and adhering to the financial restraints, the challenge of acquiring a quality player is getting difficult by each passing day.
So here we are presenting you with the 5 potential bargain signings of the summer which have slipped under the radar.
#1 Raphael Guerreiro (Borussia Dortmund)
Guerreiro was a star for Portugal in Euro 2016 where he won his first major international silverware. Not only did he have a scintillating season with the national team but also had a stellar season with his club team. Guerreiro was a star for FC Lorient.
A fullback who doesn't dive into tackles and likes to bomb forward at every possible opportunity is surely any coach's dream fullback. Dortmund faced some stiff competition from clubs like Liverpool in their pursuit of the Portuguese.
The 22-year-old is known for his astute style of play. He is one of the few modern day full-backs who can defend sturdily without compromising in the attacking department. Borussia Dortmund did some quick business by buying him for €12 million. This seems a total bargain considering his performances in Euros and inflation in the current transfer market.
This has to be the most underrated transfer of the season.
