Premier League Transfer Rumours

Premier League transfer rumours

The richest division in world football, Premier League transfer rumours are a part of life these days. Indeed, gossip columns all over the globe are dedicated to them as fans ponder who will be brought to these shores as English teams flex their financial muscles.

Still, with 20 teams, it can be hard to keep up to date with everything that’s written about the English elite. With that in mind, the Football Transfer Tavern have, rather helpfully, set up a page where you can keep a track of absolutely everything in order to get your fix.

Breaking news and latest gossip whether it be January or July, we’ve got everything you need here.

Premier League transfer records

Never ones to shy away from spending big money, the Premier League have seen transfer records smashed on their watch. Twice have English sides broken the world record with Alan Shearer becoming the first-ever £15m player when he swapped Blackburn Rovers for boyhood heroes Newcastle United, before Paul Pogba enjoyed a homecoming himself – this time for £89m when Manchester United came calling twenty years later.

Indeed, a cultural hub for some of the most talented players in the world, some big names have also departed. Philippe Coutinho became the most expensive player to have been prized away from England in January 2018 when Barcelona spent over £100m to get him, while Real Madrid have previously shelled out over £80m for both Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale in years gone by.

Famous Premier League transfers

Where to start?

In the near three decades the Premier League has been standing, some of the best players in the world have been imported into it. Names such as Thierry Henry, Ronaldo, Eden Hazard, Luis Suarez and Sergio Aguero were all purchased for relatively low fees given their contributions and went on to become legends in the game.

Even between Premier League clubs, we’ve seen some huge money change hands. Chelsea paying £50m for Fernando Torres springs to mind. Liverpool then spending £35m of that Andy Carroll is another. Manchester United breaking the British record for Angel di Maria in 2014, too. Wow, none of them really worked out, did they?

Currently, the record between English sides stands at the £80m United shelled out for Harry Maguire – then of Leicester City, of course – in the summer of 2019.

Biggest Premier League stories

Well, with Manchester United, Chelsea, Tottenham and Arsenal currently undergoing rebuilds, the rumour-mill is likely to be churning faster than ever this summer. Indeed, Manchester City also have some catching up to do after falling behind this season, while the imperious Liverpool haven’t spent in a while, meaning we could be in for an absolutely huge summer.

Furthermore, outfits such as Sheffield United and Wolves will surely want to build on their current success by strengthening significantly and it’ll be interesting to see if any of the teams coming up from the Championship follow in the footsteps of Aston Villa and Fulham by letting loose in the market following promotion.
