BTP Premium: Early Transfer Market Splashdown
Already some important first shots have been fired in the transfer market from both Bayern Munich and Juventus where some important names have now been moved for substantial fees, but surely have further ramifications as new money, new managers and big new projects are soon to envelope the back pages this summer. Joining Anto for a first look at the Italian market which often shapes the higher end moves and the after market moves late in the summer is David Amoyal of GianlucaDiMarzio.com to examine the fates for a number of clubs and deals including the likes of Pogba, Morata, Icardi, Vasquez, Higuain, Brozovic, young Italian strikers, two Milanese giants who suddenly could become players with new cash from the Far East, and the sudden and unexpected arrival of Marcelo Bielsa at Lazio who is sure to alter the roster there as well. How does a vast TV deal in the Premier League define this market, how will Roma and Napoli respond as they face Champions League challenges and what next for those two clubs in Milan who are in a pitched battle to return to Europe.
