Difficult start for expensive players.
Kai Havertz (Arsenal, 75 million euros)
He received the nickname “Agent 007”, previously borne by Mudryk, a Chelsea winger. The German moved from this club to Arsenal, but in the first seven games Havertz scored 0 goals and 0 assists. Of course, Kai is a titled footballer, even as a member of Arsenal he was able to win the FA Super Cup. The Gunners beat Manchester City on penalties. But Havertz was of no use in the new team’s first nine games. Arteta did what coaches of clubs with huge transfer budgets like. Everyone told Mikel that Havertz was not needed and would not help, but the Spaniard forced the owners to pay 75 million euros. Every ambitious mentor wants to demonstrate his knowledge of football and show his taste. Guardiola also loves similar transfers. Josep honestly admitted that he doesn’t get good football from midfielder Phillips at Manchester City. And Havertz could fail at Arsenal, because it is not easy for the “new Mullers” to find a club that needs people of their format without a clear position.
André Onana (Manchester United, €52.5 million)
Erik ten Hag is a very strange man. Sancho was late for training and refused to apologise, as did the Dutch coach Manchester United he doesn’t want to talk about the team’s English winger. The Brazilian Anthony is accused of beating several women, but inside Manchester United they returned him to the team. Where is the logic and respect for the greatness of the Red Devils club? This is why the purchase of Onana is devoid of logic. Did Ten Hag need a goalkeeper because De Gea’s feet hurt? But Eric chose a goalkeeper who makes ridiculous mistakes, which the Cameroonian immediately did with his shirt Manchester United. It is certainly not Van der Sar’s second game for an English club. Not all former Ajax goalkeepers are destined to succeed in Manchester.
Moises Caicedo (Chelsea, 133 million euros)
Brighton are in third place with 15 points, while Chelsea are in 14th place. nuclear submarine with five points after six games played. In the head-to-head in the League Cup, the “aristocrats” knocked out the “seagulls”, but this does not mean that Pochettino will succeed in a difficult club. It has been noted that Chelsea’s statistics contain outliers resembling the team’s value of one billion euros. But Caicedo, for whom 133 million euros plus bonuses were paid, has not yet helped Pochettino. Enzo Fernandez, who moved earlier from Benfica, is in the starting line-up, but his Ecuadorian teammate has not become a “mixture of Kante and Lampard”. It would be a shame if Chelsea didn’t find a place for Caicedo. The young midfielder doesn’t play for 133 million euros, but he definitely deserves everyone’s attention. Moises knows how to win the ball and bravely joined Brighton’s attacks, where the game is better organized than at Chelsea.
Josko Guardiol (Manchester City, 90 million euros)
Although City did not win the FA Super Cup and were eliminated from the League Cup by Newcastle, the winners Champions League perfect start nuclear submarine. But newcomer Guardiol has nothing to do with this success. The young Croatian can collect precise passes from left back, but his debut is certainly not incredible. Compared to midfielder Nunez and winger Doku, these expensive newcomers to Guardiola’s club showed themselves brighter at the start. And it’s not just the Croatian’s position. Yoshko played both in the center of defense and on the left flank, but it is too early to praise him too much. We’ll see if the mistakes come when Manchester City face their toughest opponents.
Rasmus Højlund (Manchester United, €75 million)
It would have been more prudent to announce a transfer hunt Manchester United for an experienced attacker. But with Ten Hag, who knows how to conflict with football players, there was no line of experienced masters lined up. Atalanta’s 20-year-old Danish Højlund agrees, but Kane chose Bayern, where it is easier to get to first place. And Osimhen refused Manchester United, because in childhood I sympathized not only with Barcelona, but also with Chelsea. Now Victor is in conflict with Napoli due to stupid videos on the club’s social media, but Ten Hag is unlikely to be able to convince the bosses in the winter Manchester United pay a lot of money to relocate a Nigerian. And Høylund risks not playing, because Rasmus either has a back injury or has had poor performances. The goal against Bayern didn’t convince us that they had found a new Van Persie, because Manchester United not as strong football as manager Ferguson’s last season.
Brennan Johnson (Tottenham, €55 million)
Can anyone explain why Levy paid €55 million for the Welsh winger? Not every boy from Wales is the new Bale, so Tottenham’s decision could lead to disappointment both for the player himself – he still does not have a place in Postecoglou’s squad, and for his new club. Spurs are already used to the fact that new attackers cannot show up. Richarlison has had a very difficult debut, even though this is not his first month in the team. Johnson also didn’t play straight away, as happened with attacking midfielder Maddison. But if Son, Kulusevski and Richarlison are also on the roster, then why does the team need Brennan Johnson? Among the most expensive transfers of the year was a Nottingham Forest boy, who at 22 will struggle to become Tottenham’s main player, because the team is racing in the top four.
Mason Mount (Manchester United, €64.2 million)
Compare the Newcastle debuts of Tonali and Mount Manchester United. Heaven and earth, even if midfielders with the same price are being transferred. Chelsea were lucky to have sent Havertz and Mount to other generous clubs. Mason is a great player, but his troubles started long before he moved to Manchester. The young midfielder missed more than a month with an unspecified injury and is now looking to bounce back after a disappointing start to his goalscoring efforts. Manchester United. But the assist against Crystal Palace did not turn Mount into a team leader. And he didn’t even name him a first-team player. This summer at nuclear submarine carried out transfers of players who started playing immediately: Rice, Szoboszlai, Tonali and Maddison made successful debuts in new clubs. But there are also inexplicably expensive and strange deals. Rich world nuclear submarine always gives the opportunity to talk about transfers.
