The Brazilian’s move away from Chelsea came as a shock to most, when it was announced he would be moving away to Shanghai SIPG for a staggering £60 million. This news comes following multiple other athletes moving away to Chinese clubs for massive amounts of money, like his international teammate, Hulk.
The highly controversial Englishman has since left Scottish side Rangers, and rejoined his former club, Burnley, despite recent betting allegations against him by the Scottish FA. The 34-year-old hasn’t seen much action recently at any clubs, and may not see any at Burnley either, but regardless, he was picked up for free, and will be looking to come back to old form.
The fullback has been all over the EFL and The Championship as of late, but won’t get too relaxed at his new club, Preston North End, after being loaned out earlier on Monday, January second. The Welshman is still working to make a name for himself, but at 21 years old, it’s beginning to look like the once bright future star is fading away.
You can expect more transfer news and stories this month as we are midway through the season and teams will be looking to fill their gaps for this year.
