Those who are interested in the football world will agree that this was one of the most memorable transfer windows in recent history.
There were some impressive signings, expensive signings, and staggering bids for deals that never went through. However, the standout moves in August came when Lionel Messi moved to PSG from Barcelona, due to the financial woes that La Liga is facing. The other notable transfer, and the most recent, came when Cristiano Ronaldo secured a transfer back to Manchester United, which is the club where many will know Ronaldo became a worldwide sensation. It is not an understatement to say that sports fans around the world were surprised, yet excited by this move, as the posted newson Instagram broke the record for most ever likes for a sports team
Ronaldo is generally considered to be among the best of all time, if not the greatest football player. When speaking of Ronaldo, only one thing should be of mind – goals. With this kind of player, the respective club is promised heaps of goals every season, an expectation that has been proven by his impressive goalscoring record. This will come to the delight of Manchester United fans, as is never a bad thing to add world-class talent to a squad of already great players. The odds for United to win the Champion’s League stand at 9/1, though some might find more enjoyment gambling online. This is something that is restricted in places like India, though those who want to get intobetting in India
might find some sites that allow them to. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be hoping to utilise Ronaldo this season, alongside other impressive attacking players like Jadon Sancho, Mason Greenwood and Marcus Rashford to truly compete with the best in Europe.
It is no secret that Manchester United has experienced a period of decline. This is something that United fans have resented, as they understand that they should be a club that is challenging for or winning trophies every season. Ever since, their greatest manager, Sir Alex Ferguson, left, the club has struggled to reach the heights of old and have gone through a host of managers before seemingly putting their chips on the Norwegian who holds the reigns now. Now that United are finally looking to be a strong team again, which can be seen from their performances and, of course, an impressive squad, fans will be expecting a good season ahead, especially now that Ronaldo is back in the fray.
Considering the business that was conducted over August, and the impressive form that some teams have been on, this season looks set to be one of the most competitive that the Premier League has seen, which can only be good news for fans. There are many sides now that could genuinely compete for the top four, which might be unnerving for fans of bigger clubs. United can be expected to challenge for the title this year, and Ronaldo might prove to be the man to get them there. He has, of course, helped the club already to win three Premier League titles, and the manager, players and the fans will be hoping that he can conjure some of the same magic again.
