So the English transfer market has opened and there have been 1 definate move and 1 almost done deal. 20 year old Jordan Henderson has moved from Sunderland to Liverpool for £20m with 22 year old David Ngog (French) possibly going the other way which would bring down the cost, and Phil Jones to join Manchester United for £16m from Blackburn.
Connor Wickham is a rising English talent and Liverpool have put in a bid last January for £5.5 but Ipswich said they will need to double the price so they can buy him. Finally Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is another bright young spark that has caught the eye of most of the top clubs but Southampton want £12m possibly more for the young winger. Even though I would say he didnt perform when Manchester United beat Southampton in the FA Cup but the big teams still want him. But why would the Premier League managers stay in the UK to buy players when they are so expensive here? I think that they should lower the prices on these uncapped international players and next year when UEFA bring in their fair play system then there wont be massive money transfer because the teams wont be able to play in europe if they do.
Finally all the Premiership teams always buy players for 'the future' but surely if you bought players that were good now then you would do better in that season rather than every transfer window buy a player who will be good in 2 or 3 seasons time buy players who are doing well and can do well for the team players that are in the now.
