What went down on the crucial transfer deadline day?

Donny van de Beek was loaned to Everton on deadline day, and Christian Eriksen was signed by Brentford FC. Following the firing of Rafa Benitez earlier this month, Everton revealed the signing of England veteran Frank Lampard as their new manager. Manchester City has completed the acquisition of Julian Alvarez from River Plate, while Tottenham has agreed to loan Tanguy Ndombele to Lyon. To replace Chris Wood, Burnley signed Wout Weghorst.

Tottenham completed the loan acquisitions of Dejan Kulusevski and Rodrigo Bentancur from Juventus, while Juventus signed Denis Zakaria from Borussia Mönchengladbach on a permanent basis. Spurs have also confirmed the loan signing of Giovani Lo Celso to Villareal in Spain.

●   Aubameyang to Barcelona 

On a free transfer, Barcelona has acquired Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. The deal was signed late Monday by the 32-year-old striker. Aubameyang has received a big wage cut after not playing for Arsenal since his disciplinary infraction in December. In 163 outings for Arsenal, the veteran striker scored 92 times. Arsenal is expected to save £15 million in wages, according to the BBC.

●   Eriksen to Brentford 

Brentford and Eriksen have a memorable moment as Christian Eriksen has agreed to a six-month contract with the Premier League club. Eriksen had not played since last June when he suffered a heart attack during Denmark’s Euro 2020 match against Finland. After that, he had a cardioverter-defibrillator inserted in his chest (ICD). Due to the fact that players with an ICD are not allowed to play in Serie A, his stay in Italy came to an end. 

●   Ramsey to Rangers 

Aaron Ramsey, midfielder for Wales, has joined Rangers FC on a season-long loan from Juventus. Between now and May, Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s side will compete on three fronts, and the former Arsenal player will provide quality and competition in the middle of the park. With the Gunners, he scored the game-winning goal in the 2014 FA Cup Final against Hull City, won the competition the following year, and won it again in 2017.

He made 371 appearances for the London club throughout an 11-year period that included loan spells at Nottingham Forest and Cardiff in 2010/11 while recovering from a broken leg. 

●   Julian Alvarez to Man City 

Alvarez has agreed to a five-and-a-half-year contract with the Premier League winners but will remain on loan at River until at least July, with the possibility of an extension.

After scoring 24 goals in 46 games for River in all competitions in 2021, he was linked with several of Europe’s best teams.

He earned his first senior Argentina cap in June as a result of his form, and he has since appeared five times for his country. Alvarez’s arrival was revealed on City’s official website on Monday, the attacker’s 22nd birthday.

Txiki Begiristain, City’s director of football, said, “Julian is a player we’ve been watching for a while.”

Mbappe, the big deal! 

According to a report, which was published by Mundo Deportivo, Real Madrid and Kylian Mbappe have reached a deal for when his contract with Paris Saint-Germain expires this summer.

Mbappe will be paid €50 million a year at the Santiago Bernabeu, though it is unclear whether this is gross or net. He will, nevertheless, become the highest-paid footballer in the world.

However, nothing will be confirmed until Madrid’s Champions League last-16 match against PSG. The French club has already given up attempting to persuade him to extend his contract.
