Post: Ronaldo flew in for the cache and Chelsea snatched the Ukrainian. Top 10 winter transfers


The transfer window in Europe is over. RIA Novosti Sport sums up the results. We draw your attention to the top 10 transitions of the winter of 2023.

January Sommer

  • Posted by: “Borussia” M;

  • Where: “Bavaria”;

  • Total: 8 million €

Bayern have released Sommer from Borussia Gladbach due to Manuel Neuer’s injury. The German broke his leg while skiing and was absent for the rest of the season. The experience of the 34-year-old goalkeeper, who is in his ninth season in the Bundesliga, will certainly help Munich remain favorites in the title race.

Wout Weghorst

  • Where: “Burnley”

  • Where: “Manchester United”

  • Rent for 3 million €.

After Ronaldo’s departure, Manchester United urgently needed a striker, as Anthony Martial cannot play without a substitution, according to head coach Eric ten Hag. The choice fell on Weghorst, who shone in the match between the Dutch and the Argentines at the 2022 World Cup. The striker belongs to Burnley and for the sake of moving to Manchester United, Wout broke his contract at Beşiktaş.

Memphis Depay

  • To where: “Barcelona”;

  • To where: “Atletico”;

  • total: 3 million €

Memphis only spent a season and a half at Barcelona and almost always tried to put himself in perfect shape. The transfer of Robert Lewandowski further removed Depay from the title of Barça offensive leader. The Dutch player has only played in 3 matches in La Liga this season. Maybe Memphis would be more effective with Antoine Griezmann? Memphis’ contract with Atlético runs until 2025, and the player himself has already made his debut for the new club in a game against Osasuna.

Cody Gakpo

  • To where: PSV;

  • To where: “Liverpool”;

  • total: € 42 million excluding bonuses.

After three goals in five matches at the 2022 World Cup held in Qatar, it has become clear that the Dutch team’s top scorer in the World Cup will not stay in PSV. He shook hands with Eindhoven club Liverpool (MJ went out of business) and struck a record deal in history.

Juan Felix

  • To where: “Atletico”;

  • To where: “Chelsea”;

  • Rent €11 million.

Felix was one of the first signings in the new Chelsea bosses’ big winter buyout. The Portuguese had a fantastic 2022 World Cup, making 1+2 in four matches. Stuck in the middle of the Premier League tableau, the Londoners paid an impressive amount for Juan’s loan and received 100% of his salary. Felix has so far failed to lead the Chelsea attacks. He was shown a red card in the first game and is currently suspended for three games.


  • Where: “Chelsea”;

  • Where: “Arsenal”;

  • Total: 13.6 million €

Chelsea are buying a lot so they have to sell. Jorginho spent almost five years with the Aristocrats and helped the club win the Europa League and the Champions League. Now the 31-year-old midfielder will fight for the title, but already as Arsenal’s chief of attack.

Juan Cancel

  • Where: “Manchester City”

  • Where: bayern

  • Rental with option to buy.

One of the most high-profile transfers of the last days of the transfer window. The Portuguese left Manchester City after a scandal. While the media wrote that the conflict with Pep Guardiola caused this, some sources say that a fight broke out between the football player and the coach. Bayern has proven to be the fastest – they have agreed on a loan and will be able to buy Cancela at the end of the season for €70 million.

Mihail Mudrik

  • To where: “Shahtar”;

  • To where: “Chelsea”;

  • total: € 70 million + 30 million bonus.

In January, Chelsea took on Arsenal for 22-year-old Shakhtar star Mykhailo Mudrik. The club did everything to win the transfer challenge. Crazy 100 million will go to Pitmen’s account, and the Ukrainian will defend the blues of the Londoners for eight and a half years. Has the Grand Premier League overpaid? It’s too early to draw conclusions. But how funny to read the news that now Chelsea have prepared only 15 million for the equally talented Russian Arsen Zakharyan.

enzo fernandez

  • Where: “Benfica”

  • Where: “Chelsea”

  • Total: €121 million

Chelsea’s biggest transfer saga of the winter, the 2022 World Cup revolves around young Enzo Fernandez. Uncompromising bosses “Benfica” nevertheless managed to convince a record amount. The newly crowned world champion broke Jack Grealish’s record, for which Manchester City paid more than 113m euros, and the deal closed in the final minutes of the transfer window. The midfielder signed a contract until the summer of 2031.

Cristiano Ronaldo

  • To where: “MU”;

  • To where: “Nasr”;

  • Free agent.

But the main transfer bomb of the past MOT is still connected with Cristiano Ronaldo. The Portuguese took a hard dive: he got into a fight with Manchester United and left unscathed, failed in Qatar and lost the dispute for the title of GOAT (“greatest”) Lionel Messi. The five-time Ballon d’Or winner traveled to Saudi Arabia to finish the game. There and the sun, unlike gloomy England, universal worship and 200 euros a year.

Precious Words:

  • Benoit Badiashile (“Monaco”), Noni Madueke (PSV) and Little Gusteau (“Lyon”) filled “Chelsea”. The total transfer amount is 103 million Euros;

  • Ruslan Malinovsky moved from Atalanta to Marseille;

  • Yuri Alberto changed “Zenith” to “Corinthians”;

  • Dejan Lovren He also left the St. Petersburg club. He will play for two-time World Cup winner Lyon;

  • Anthony Gordon He replaced sinking Everton with ambitious Newcastle. The new owners of “Forty” spent just over 45 million euros on the transfer;

  • Weston McKenny left Juventus amid the scandal at the club;

  • Eldor Shomurodov loaned to Spezia until the end of the season;

  • Yaroslav Rakitski He turned to Shakhtar.
