We have finally arrived at La Liga January transfer window 2021. There are exciting rumors heard from every corner of Europe, linking footballers to teams in the Spanish Primera Division. Follow us below as we update you on La Liga latest transfer news of 2021.

The dreaded year of 2020 has finally come to an end and the new year has started with quite a lot of exciting rumors for La Liga fans and some worrying rumors for Barcelona fans, as everyone has keeping their eyes peeled on Lionel Messi’s next move, to see if he would finally make a decision to sign for another club after so many years in Catalonia, or if he would renegotiate his terms and sign a contract extension with Barcelona.

The

latest La Liga Transfer News and Rumours

are getting hotter every day, as even

Real Madrid

have been linked to several players, even though the manager, Zinedine Zidane, explicitly announced his wish to stay out of the January transfer window this year. No matter what the club have announced, there are several La Liga transfer rumours of 2021 that link some players to Los Blancos.

We know that you too are excited to know all about the latest news on who has gone where. So without further ado, let us have a look at the latest La Liga Transfer News and Rumours.

La Liga january transfer news of 2021

If you as well are intrigued to be updated on everything that has been going on in La Liga’s January transfer window, then we have just the information you need. Read on to have further info on all the latest rumors and confirmed deals in the Spanish Primera Division.

La Liga transfer rumours of 2021  

Before updating you on the latest done deals and completed transfers of this year’s January transfer window, we have provided below a number of hot rumors about some of the world-class players that might or might not be joining or moving out of a club in

La Liga

. Here are the rumors that have been going around in the media.

Lionel Messi

  • Transfer: Barcelona-TBD

Let us get the most obvious of them all out of the way before we delve into the world of rumors and confirmed transfers. Lionel Messi’s falling out with the club’s former president, Josep Bartomeu, and all of the drama that followed it in 2020 stirred quite a lot of controversy for months, as it even got quite serious in a week or two, when the Argentine GOAT had had enough and wanted to leave

Barcelona

for good at all costs.

Fortunately for Barcelona fans, the six-time Ballon d’Or winner was held off at the gates, as he claimed he did not want to take the club he loved and adored the most to court in order to get justice. But that did not stop the world from speculating where Messi’s next destination was going to be. Even to this day, people are still making assumptions on the left-footed genius’ preferences.

Per rumors regarding the

La Liga January transfer window 2021

, obviously many clubs are interested in signing the

Argentina

international. But not all of these clubs have the budget or the means of piquing his interest and persuading him to join their ranks. There are, however, two clubs in particular that have both the motif and the means of persuading the Argentine, and these two clubs are

Manchester City

and Paris Saint-Germain.

With the Cityzens tying Messi’s beloved manager, Pep Guardiola, to another contract extension, and the Parisians having Messi’s old buddy,

Neymar

, in their ranks, it could be quite difficult for Messi to choose between the two available clubs. Of course he has also pointed out his interest in joining MLS one day, but might be too good to be true for MLS fans, as Messi is still in his prime and could go on for another couple of seasons before having to decide on his future again.

David Alaba

  • Transfer: Bayern Munich-Real Madid

Even though Real Madrid have been planning on renovating their stadium and saving money for their next Galacticos such as

Kylian Mbappe

or even Erling Braut Haaland, one could not ignore the fact that their recent signing of Eder Militao has not been as successful as they might have hoped, as the Brazilian has not been able to impress at the club, leaving the stage to bigger stars, namely Sergio Ramos and Raphael Varane.

It has been public knowledge for some time that the Austrian defender is planning on parting ways with

Bayern Munich

after a decade. That is why many clubs have been linked with him, including the Premier League side, Chelsea, and of course Real Madrid, who have been heavily linked with David Alaba, as they want a replacement for their aging backline. We will have to wait and see if he finally gets to be one of the

La Liga january signings of 2021

.

The 28-year-old has already won quite a lot of trophies with Bayern Munich, including 2 Champions League trophies, 9 Bundesliga titles, 6 DFB Pokal trophies, 2 UEFA Supercups, 1 FIFA Club World Cup and 5 German Super Cups. Based on how illustrious his career has been with the Bavarians, it is clearly not an issue of success, but rather an issue of financial nature.

David Alaba has been demanding a higher wage for quite some time now, but his current club cannot afford his higher wage demands. That is why he has waited until his contract nears its expiration date. His current contract will expire in June 2021 and is free to negotiate a pre-contract deal with any club that he desires.

Even though he has been heavily linked with clubs such as Real Madrid and

Chelsea

, neither of these clubs seem to be willing to meet the world-class defender’s wage demands, which is the main issue at Bayern as well. We will have to wait and see how things will pan out in the end, and where the Austrian will end up playing.

Certainly Real Madrid fans would want to have him on their side, as they have shown signs of weakness at the back when Sergio Ramos is not around to solidify the defensive line. Can Florentino Perez pull another trick out of his sleeves and persuade David Alaba to join Real Madrid’s ranks next season?

Marcos Alonso

  • Transfer: Chelsea-Atletico Madrid

Regarding the rumored transfers of

La Liga winter transfer window of 2021

, there are speculations that Atletico Madrid have enquired about the former Real Madrid and current Chelsea left-back, Marcos Alonso, who has recently turned 30-years-old. Of course the La Liga side are not interested in buying the footballer, as they plan on signing the Spaniard on a loan deal. The rumors are certainly getting stronger every day, and it might be a matter of time before we finally see him don the

Atletico Madrid

shirt.

Diego Costa

  • Transfer: Atletico Madrid-TBD

With the arrival of Joao Felix and

Luis Suarez

, it seems that the veteran Spanish striker felt underappreciated at Atletico Madrid, as he requested that his contracted be terminated immediately. That is exactly what the club’s board have done, and Diego Costa is now a free agent, able to move to any club he desires without the team paying any transfer fees. The 32-year-old has won 2 Premier League titles, the English League Cup, the 2013/14 La Liga title, a Copa del Rey, a Europa League trophy and 3 UEFA Supercups throughout his career.

He might want to get back to the Premier League and challenge himself once again with Chelsea, or even 

Arsenal

or Wolves. He might even move to a whole new league for new adventures, as nothing can stop the tank of a striker, who is named Diego Costa. We will be monitoring his moves with great care to bring you the latest

La Liga january transfer window news of 2021

.

Luka Jovic

  • Transfer: Real Madrid-Wolves, Frankfurt

With Cristiano Ronaldo moving to Juventus, Florentino Perez has spent literally millions in order to fill the Portuguese goal machine’s place with another striker. He has signed the likes of Eden Hazard and Luka Jovic, but none have been able to fill his shoes at the club. Luka Jovic in particular, has been unbelievably far away from his form at

Eintracht Frankfurt

, where he initially managed to get Real Madrid’s attention.

The 23-year-old Serbian striker has been linked with a loan move to several clubs, including Wolverhampton Wanderers and his previous club, Frankfurt, as he aims to get more time on the pitch and at least keep his current form, since Madrid’s old-timer Karim Benzema is still the king when it comes to being the club’s go-to number 9. Of course it is not one of the

La Liga january transfer done deals in 2021

yet, but the speculations are getting stronger every day.

Jovic managed to make 75 appearances during his spell at Frankfurt, as he scored a total of 36 goals and provided 9 assists in those appearances, which caught the attention of some of the elite clubs in Europe. Aside from the La Liga title and the Spanish Super Cup that he has won with Real Madrid, he has also won the 2017/18 DFB Pokal, 2 Primerira Liga titles with

Benfica

and 2 Serbian SuperLiga titles with Red Star Belgrade over the years.

His future does not seem very bright at the moment, which is why he needs a loan move to another club, where he could get regular first-team action. While he could move to another club, there is always the option of staying and proving his worth to the manager, his teammates and his supporters. But succeeding in that will take a huge amount of effort, especially since his French teammate Karim Benzema is in such a fine form. Now follow us below as we unveil La Liga january transfer done deals in 2021.

La Liga January 2021 transfer window live update

The information below is about all of the done deals of this year’s transfer window. Read on to find out who has put pen on paper to join which club.

Etienne Capoue

  • Transfer: Watford-Villarreal

  • Transfer fee: $3.9M

The 32-year-old defensive midfielder is the first signing of the La Liga winter transfer window of 2021. The former Toulouse and

Tottenham

footballer spent five years with Watford, before finally signing for

Villarreal

a couple of days ago. He managed to make a total of 181 appearances overall, scoring 14 goals and providing 8 assists in the process. But he decided to join the La Liga side after Watford got finally relegated to the championship this season. Unai Emery will be counting on his new signing, as his club have spent roughly $4 million on bringing him into their ranks.

Jose Martinez

  • Transfer: Eibar-FC Dallas

  • Transfer fee: TBD/on loan

Based on the

La Liga latest transfer news of 2021

,

Eibar

’s Jose Antonio Martinez has moved to the MLS in order to join FC Dallas on loan. The center-back was born in January 1993, and is currently 27 years old. The 1.89 m (6 ft 2 in) tall defender will be hoping to find his feet at FC Dallas and prove that he is worthy of going back to his club, or even worthy of making his move to FC Dallas permanent. He has also previously been a part of

Sevilla

and Barcelona’s B sides.

Aaron Martin

  • Transfer: Mainz-Celta Vigo

  • Transfer fee: TBD/on loan

Following the

La Liga january transfer news of 2021

, Aaron Martin Caricol has moved to

Celta Vigo

on loan from Mainz, after spending two years with the Bundesliga side. The 23-year-old has made a total of 164 appearances before his loan move to Celta Vigo, helping

Espanyol

qualify for La Liga in 2016. We will have to wait and see how the Spaniard fares at his new club.

Carles Alena

  • Transfer: Barcelona-Getafe

  • Transfer fee: TBD/On loan

Next on our list of

La Liga january signings of 2021

is Barcelona’s

Carles Alena

, who has agreed on a loan move to Getafe. There was a time when people hyped up Alena’s presence at Nou Camp, as they believed that the Spaniard was to be the next Xavi for the Blaugranas. But the road has been a tough one for the 23-year-old midfielder, as he has spent his time on loan at Real Betis since last year and has now moved to another club in La Liga on loan.

His chances at being a first-team starter grew even thinner with the arrival of Frenkie de Jong from

Ajax

, which is why the club and Ronald Koeman saw it fit to loan him to a club where they could keep a close eye on his development. Alena has made a total of 44 appearances since the 2016/17 season, making most of his appearances in the 2018/19 season, when he got to play in 27 matches for the Catalonians.

One of the perks of playing for such a world-class club is that no matter how many games you get to play, you still win several trophies in the process. The Spaniard has won 2 Copas del Rey and 1 La Liga title with Barcelona, and hopes to get more playing time at

Getafe

, who currently sit just above the relegation zone on the league table.

Takefusa Kubo

  • Transfer: Real Madrid-Getafe

  • Transfer fee: TBD/On loan

The Japanese prodigy

Takefusa Kubo

first hit the headlines when he surprisingly signed for Real Madrid in 2019, with his move being riddled with confusion. He is originally a La Masia product, but had to go back to his home country to the age restrictions put to protect the youth from moving to foreign countries at an early age. Kubo moved back to Japan and joined FC Tokyo and became the youngest player in J.League history at the age of 15 years, 5 months and 1 day old.

Not only did Kubo become the youngest player in his home country’s top-flight, he also became the youngest goalscorer in J.League history five months after his debut. It counted as a victory over Barcelona for Los Blancos after they managed to snatch the Japan international from under the Catalans’ noses, further implementing their new strategy of signing young and exciting prospects instead of older, experienced Galacticos.

While Kubo did manage to make the headlines once back in 2019, he has also made the

La Liga january transfer window news of 2021

due to his shaky start to the season at Villarreal, whom he had initially joined on loan at the start of the season. It is reasonable that Real Madrid would want to keep a close eye on their young prodigy, which is why he was loaned out to a club in La Liga.

Villarreal

manager Unai Emery, however, seems to have little time for raising the future stars of Real Madrid, and has focused his attention on the collective development of his team. The Yellow Submarine currently sits 4th on the league table and is in quite an intense rivalry with the top-3 clubs, which is why Emery did not give the inexperienced Kubo the playtime he needs. Now the Japanese youngster has moved to

Getafe

on loan to give it one more shot before the end of the season. He is one of the latest La Liga january signings of 2021.

Sergio Gonzalez

  • Transfer: Cadiz-Tenerife

  • Transfer fee: TBD/On loan

La Liga january transfer window news of 2021 are getting hotter by the minute, but there are transfers such as Sergio Gonzalez’s loan move from Cadiz to Tenerife, that balance out the intensity by giving the transfer window a rather calm sense. For those of you who are not familiar with Sergio Gonzalez, he is a 23-year-old center-back born in 1997, who has recently joined Tenerife from Cadiz CF.

Gonzalez is originally a

Cadiz CF

youth academy graduate and went onto pitch as a professional senior footballer for the first time in 2016. Making less than 30 league appearances since makings his senior debut at Cadiz, he has now joined Tenerife in hopes of getting more first-team action to develop his talents and realize his full potential. He will be on loan at

CD Tenerife

for the remainder of the 2020/21 season.

Moussa Dembele

  • Transfer: Olympique Lyon-Atletico Madrid

  • Transfer fee: €1M/On loan

There were rumors about the French striker joining the Rojiblancos after Diego Costa terminated his contract with the club due to Luis Suarez’s arrival in the Summer.

Moussa Dembele

has joined Atletico Madrid on loan from Olympique Lyon, and will be spending the rest of the season with the Spanish league leaders, who have successfully managed to stay on top and above other title challengers such as Real Madrid, Barcelona and Villarreal. Could 2021 be Diego Simeone and Atletico Madrid’s year once again? We will see.

The 24-year-old striker has joined the Spanish giants with a lot of promise, as he is quite a prolific and lethal goal scorer when he is on form. The issue, however, is the fact that Dembele has struggled to find his form this season, as he has scored only 1 goal in 16 appearances for Lyon, most of which have been made coming off the bench.

Manuel Sanchez

  • Transfer: Atletico Madrid-Osasuna

  • Transfer fee: TBD/On loan

According to our

La Liga January 2021 transfer window live update

, Atletico Madrid youngster Manu Sanchez has moved to

Osasuna

on loan until the summer of 2021. Manuel "Manu" Sanchez de la Pena is one of Atletico’s Generation Z footballers, as he was born in the year 2000. He is currently finding his form as a left-back, which is why he has moved to Osasuna on loan to improve his game even further and be able to take his spot in the Atletico Madrid squad.

He only got to make 1 La Liga appearance during the first half of the 2020/21 season, while he got to play a total of 5 games in the 2019/20 season, which is still not enough for a youngster’s proper development. We shall see how many appearances he gets to make for Osasuna, who are currently sitting in the relegation zone, 19th on the league table.

Luka Jovic

  • Transfer: Real Madrid-Eintracht Frankfurt

  • Transfer fee: TBD/On loan

It is safe to say that Luka Jovic has been one of Real Madrid’s worst signings in history. The striker came to the club with quite a lot of promise as he became their most expensive striker ever. While many believed that he could at least pair up with Benzema or idealistically replace the aging striker, Luka Jovic’s attitude betrayed the Serbian as he flopped so bad, that Zidane had to send him back to his old club, where he used to tear apart the opposition defenders and haunt their goalkeepers.

Jovic moved to Madrid for a whopping €60 million as many believed that his move was the start of a new Galacticos era, but the only galactic thing about Jovic was his price tag, as he only managed to score 2 goals and provide 2 assists in 32 appearances and more than 1,000 minutes of playtime.

Now he has returned to Eintracht Frankfurt, where he became the club’s most prolific goal scorer, in hopes of returning to his former self and his prime once again. Fortunately for Jovic and Mardidistas, the center-forward is only 23 years old and has got enough time to get back on his feet and avoid being one of Real Madrid’s worst flops of all time.

Johan Mojica

  • Transfer: Girona-Elche

  • Transfer fee: TBD/On loan

According to La Liga January 2021 transfer window live update, Girona’s Johan Mojica has joined

Elche

on loan until the summer of 2021. The 28-year-old left-back has played for quite a number of teams, including

Rayo Vallecano

, Real Valladolid, Atalanta and the Colombian side, Deportivo Cali. He moved to Girona in 2018 for €5 million after spending two loan spells at the club. However, he has once again been spending his time on loan since September 2020, joining Atalanta first and now moving to Girona for the remainder of the season.

Pablo de Blasis

  • Transfer: Eibar-Cartagena

  • Transfer fee: Free transfer

Pablo de Blasis has officially joined Cartagena after his contract with Eibar expired in July 2020. He arrived at Eibar for €2 million from

FSV Mainz 05

in 2018 and got to make a total of 58 appearances in two seasons. The Argentine veteran is versatile enough to play in a number of key positions, including both the wings and the right-back. de Blasis will turn 33 years old next month and has joined La Liga 2 side, FC Cartagena until June 2021.

Borja Garces

  • Transfer: Atletico Madrid-Fuenlabrada

  • Transfer fee: TBD/On loan

Borja Garces is one of Atletico Madrid’s latest academy products, who is currently 21 years old and is hungry for goals and glory. The Spanish forward has joined

CF Fuenlabrada

on loan for the remainder of the season to get more first team action and improve his abilities to one day become an integral part of Atletico’s first team. His current transfer market value is believed to be around €3 million and could see a significant rise if he manages to make an impression during his first loan spell away from Atletico Madrid

Willian Jose

  • Transfer: Real Sociedad-Wolves

  • Transfer fee: TBD/On loan

There has been exciting news going around for the

Wolverhampton Wanderers

supporters, who have seen their team drop crucial points in the last few games, failing to score the needed goals. It seems that club manager, Nuno Espírito Santo has thought everything through and has answered the calls by bringing in a new striker. It has been confirmed that Real Sociedad goal-scorer,

Willian Jose

has joined Wolves on loan for the remainder of the season, which will surely help the team gain more strength in the frontlines.

Willian Jose is no stranger to loan moves, as he has already spent quite a long time on loan at clubs such as Santos FC, Gremio and Real Zaragoza. He joined Real Socided back in 2016 for €6 million, and is now off to a new spell in the Premier League.

Carlos Fernandez

  • Transfer: Sevilla-Real Sociedad

  • Transfer fee: €9M

With Willian Jose joining Wolverhampton Wanderers on loan until the end of the 2020/21 season, it was only logical that Real Sociedad bring in a replacement for their center-forward, and bring in they have. It was announced recently that Sevilla center-forward Carlos Fernandez has joined Real Sociedad with a five-year contract deal for reportedly €9 million.

The Spaniard has spent almost all of his career at Sevilla, being a graduate of the club’s youth academy. He did, however, spent some time on loan at

Deportivo La Coruna

and Granada, and has now joined La Real on a permanent deal.

Reoberto Olabe

  • Transfer: Eibar-Tondela

  • Transfer fee: €500K

24-year-old central midfielder, Roberto Olabe, has joined Portuguese side,

Tondela

on loan until 30 June 2021 from Eibar. Olabe first joined Eibar from Atletico Madrid B for reportedly €3 million in 2019, and has since spent his time on loan at various clubs such as Albacete and Extremadura.

The Spaniard has immense versatility and is able to play in a whole array of positions, as he has been deployed in almost all positions, except as a full-back and a goalkeeper. Of course it seems that he is most comfortable as a central midfielder, and that is where Natxo Gonzalez could make best use of his new signing.

Aleix Garcia

  • Transfer: Manchester City-Eibar

  • Transfer fee: Free transfer

It was announced on Monday that

Eibar

made their first signing in this year’s winter transfer window, as Aleix Garcia moved to the La Liga side on a free transfer from the Premier League side, Manchester City. A Villarreal academy graduate, Garcia joined the Blues of Manchester in 2015 for a fee which is believed to be around €4 million. He spent most of his time on loan at Girona, Mouscron and

FC Finamo

, and has finally managed to move away from Manchester City to a club where he might finally get a chance of playing.

Of course the deal does not have much of a permanency to it, as his contract is set to expire at the end of the 2020/21 season. He might need to prove his worth and put in all of his effort to secure a contract extension deal with Eibar at the end of the season.

Jean-Pierre Rhyner

  • Transfer: Cadiz-FC Emmen

  • Transfer fee: TBD/On loan

Eredivisie side,

FC Emmen

, and La Liga side,

Cadiz CF

have reached an agreement over the loan move of 24-year-old center-back, Jean-Pierre Rhyner, who has joined FC Emmen for the remainder of the season. The Swiss-born Peruvian footballer will be staying in the Netherlands until 30 June, 2021. Rhyner started his professional career at Swiss club Grasshoppers, from where he went on to join Cadiz CF for a figure believed to be around €250K in 2019.

After his move to La Liga, the 1,88-meter-tall center-back spent more than a year at FC Cartagena on loan from October 2020 to January 2021. Of course while Rhyner is trying to find his feet after his move to Cadiz, since which he has now joined a second club on loan, his international career seems to be heading in the right direction, as he was recently called up for the Peru national team by Ricardo Gareca, who seems to be excited to have the center-back join their squad for the Qatar 2022 World Cup Qualifiers.

Even though Jean-Pierre Rhyner’s nationality is in fact Peruvian, the Peruvian Football Federation (FPF) was required to submit an initial request to FIFA regarding the matter of summoning him to the national team, as the center-back had been formerly registered by the Swiss Football Association prior to FPF’s request.

Damian Kadzior

  • Transfer: Eibar-Alanyaspor

  • Transfer fee: TBD/On loan

Per the latest news on the La Liga 2021 winter transfer window, Eibar’s Polish right-winger, Damian Kadzior has joined Turkey’s

Alanyaspor

on loan until the end of the current season. Kadzior is no stranger to loan moves, as he has spent quite a long time on loan at several clubs in Poland, including Motor Lublin, Dolcan Zabki and Jagiellonia. He initially joined Eibar last summer on 29 August, 2020, for reportedly €2 million.

While back then his transfer market value was estimated to be around €3-4 million, his market value has seen quite a drop since his move to La Liga, as it is estimated to be less than the €2 million that Eibar originally paid to acquire his services from

Dinamo Zagreb

, who had initially brought him in for less than €500K.

Kadzior’s quality lies in his immense versatility, which allows him to play in a multitude of positions on the pitch, which seemingly did not get to help the 28-year-old at Eibar, as he only made a total of 8 appearances and played less than 400 minutes overall since joining the club less than a year ago. His best time in his career was without a doubt during his spell at Wigry Suwalki, where he got to score an impressive 20 goals in 53 appearances, averaging almost a goal every two games.

Brandon

  • Transfer: Osasuna-Leganes

  • Transfer fee: TBD/On loan

25-year-old Osasuna center-froward Brandon Thomas Llamas, simply known as Brandon, has joined La Liga2 side, Leganes on loan for the remainder of the season, adding to quite the long list of short-term loans that have been official in the 2021 winter transfer window. Brandon started his career with Mallorca, without even making a single appearance for the team’s reserves side, as he came on as a substitute for Alejandro Alfaro.

Brandon’s initial success at Osasuna earned him a €3 million move to the French side,

Stade Rennais

 in 2017, with whom he only spent a season as he was later loaned out to Osasuna in 2018 with an option to buy. Osasuna acquired the Spaniard’s services from Stade Rennais for €2 milion in 2019, which obviously meant that the center-forward had only declined in form since moving to France. Moving to Osasuna has not been the ideal transfer for Brandon either, as he spent half a season on loan at Girona, from January until June 2020.

The former

RCD Mallorca

center-forward will be hoping to turn the tides during his loan spell at Leganes, after which he will once again return to his own club in order to try and prove his worth to Jagoba Arrasate.

Ivan Saponjic

  • Transfer: Atletico Madrid-Cadiz

  • Transfer fee: TBD/On loan

It was rumored almost two weeks ago that Atletico Madrid were looking to offload their forgotten striker, Ivan Saponjic, who was initially linked with a move to

Real Valladolid

. The Serbian center-forward obviously has no chance of competing with the likes of Joao Felix, Luis Suarez and now Moussa Dembele, who has just recently joined Rojiblancos on loan from Lyon. Saponjic only managed to make five appearances in two season before his loan move to Cadiz.

Exclusive SPORTMOB video

With Deigo Simeone clearly having no plans for the development of the 23-year-old, who initially joined Atletico Mardid for less than a million Euros in 2019, not even Diego Costa’s departure could help Saponjic’s situation at the club, which is why he agreed on a loan move to Cadiz so that he can finally get some playtime. While the center-forward has been struggling in La Liga, he used to be the Serbian champion almost five years ago, when he won the Serbian league in the 2014/15 season, while winning the Serbian Cup a season later.

Augusto Solari

  • Transfer: Racing Club-Celta Vigo

  • Transfer fee: €500K

It was recently officially announced that Racing Club and

Celta Vigo

have reached an agreement over the move of Augusto Solari, as Celta Vigo have reportedly paid €500,000 in order to acquire the Argentine winger’s services from Racing Club. Celta Vigo actually managed to sign the 29-year-old on quite a good deal, as Solari’s current transfer market value is believed to be around €4 million. The right-winger has officially signed for the La Liga side on a two-year deal, with his contract set to expire on 30 June, 2023.

While Solari did get to win the Argentinian league with Racing Club and become an Argentinian champion, his most successful years in terms of winning more trophies were the years he spent at River Plate, with whom he managed to get his hands on an Argentine Primera Division title, a Copa Sudamericana trophy and a Copa Libertadores title.

Juan Manuel Sanabria

  • Transfer: Atletico Madrid-Real Zaragoza

  • Transfer fee: TBD/On loan

While Atletico Madrid have been quite busy in this season’s January transfer market, the club’s reserves side has also been trying to keep up with a number of loan deals. It was officially announced recently that Altetico Madrid B central midfielder, Juan Manuel Sanarbia has joined Real Zaragoza on loan for the remainder of the 2020/21 season. The 20-year-old Uruguayan midfielder is an Atletico academy graduate, but initially moved to the club from Nacional’s U19 squad for almost €1 million in the 2018/19 season.

Considering the fact that Atleti’s reserves side plays in Spain’s third tier, a loan move to the second-tier side, Real Zaragoza, is quite a move up the ladder of success, as he will have the chance to prove himself in a more serious competition, where teams fight for a La Liga promotion. Of course despite their past success in getting promoted into La Liga in prior seasons,

Zaragoza

will not be competing for a ticket into Spain’s top-flight, as they are currently fighting to avoid losing more points to stay above the relegation zone.

Alejandro Gomez

  • Transfer: Atalanta-Sevilla

  • Transfer fee: €5.5M

€15-million-rated striker, Alejandro Gomez has finally moved to a new club after falling out with former club

Atalanta

. Gomez fell out with Gasperini during the Champions League games, which resulted in him sitting out some of the team’s recent matches in the new season, which is why Sevilla were able to sign the 32-year-old at a cut-price. In a truly bargain of a deal, Sevilla have signed the Argentine footballer for reportedly €5.5 million.

Gomez spent five years at Atalanta, and was primarily the main captain in the 2019/20 season, which is why he had mixed feelings about his departure from the club, as he still felt the love and affection of the club’s supporters, but was also excited to join a new club in a new league.

Gomez made a total of 252 appearances for the Nerazzurri, scoring 59 goals and providing 71 assists in the process. Sevilla’s supporters will surely be excited to see their new signing in action, who is quite a versatile forward, and can play in a multitude of crucial roles.

Martin Odegaard

  • Transfer: Real Madrid-Arsenal

  • Transfer fee: €1.5M/On loan

It was announced recently that the now 22-year-old Martin Odegaard has joined Premier League side Arsenal until the end of the current season. His current market value is believed to be around €40 million, which is why

Arsenal

have paid €1.5 million to sign the Norwegian talent on a short-term loan deal.

Martin Odegaard was once the hot topic of the world, as he made headlines as the next Lionel Messi. Everyone was excited to see the Norwegian wonderkid in action after it was announced that Real Madrid had signed Odergaard from Stromsgodset for €3 million. While the attacking midfielder’s career in Spain did start with quite a lot of hype, Odegaard could not keep up with the hype train, as language barrier, possibly poor youth management from the club and several other issues stopped the midfielder from making much of an impact at his new club.

He then went on to spend a couple of seasons in Eredivisie at Heerenveen and Vitesse, but it was in his third loan spell that he finally managed to turn the eyes towards himself once again. Odegaard impressed everyone with his performance at Real Sociedad, which is why Zinedine Zidane called him back from his loan spell to rejoin the Real Madrid squad.

But it did not take long for the French icon to stick to his all-time great XI and a midfield of Kroos, Modric and Casemiro, who have deservedly dominated Los Blancos’ midfield for years. That is why Odegaard handed in his loan transfer request so that he could keep his fine form and get more time on the pitch at another club, while still having the chance to return to Madrid and finally show his worth to Madridistas.

Denis Vavro

  • Transfer: Lazio-SD Huesca

  • Transfer fee: TBD/On loan

It seems that Valencia are not the only club active in the La Liga 2021 winter transfer window, as SD Huesca are also one of the clubs active in the transfer market, who have recently signed Denis Vavro on a short-term loan deal from Lazio.

The Slovakian center-back will be spending the rest of the season on loan at SD Huesca to maybe rediscover his form, as his market value has dropped significantly compared to how much Lazio paid FC Copenhagen to sign him in 2019.

27-year-old

Girona
