Since Bruno Fernandes’ arrival at Old Trafford in January 2020, he has single-handedly dragged Manchester United to where they never dreamed of being, changing their mentality for the better. The Portuguese playmaker’s performances have put United at the Premier League table together with defending champions, Liverpool.
Also, his relationship with his teammates is equally commendable as you can rarely see him angry. It would be difficult to find any player to can usurp Fernandes as the winner of our 5 top transfers of 2020.
2. Zlatan Ibrahimovic [LA Galaxy To AC Milan]
Many thought that Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s glory days are far gone after moving to the MLS, but the reverse is the case. After switching to his old AC Milan side back in January, the Swedish striker has turned the Rossoneri into title contenders.
The 39 years old forward has proved that AC Milan’s decisions to bring him back were never a mistake as he is making sure that they remain undefeated in European football. Despite being injured at the moment, Ibra’s presence at the young Milan squad is something motivational and by far his transfer is the best decision AC Milan has made in decades now.
No questions he made it to our list of the top transfers of 2020.
3. Erling Haaland [Red Bull Salzburg To Borussia Dortmund]
The 2020 Golden Boy award winner has been one of Borussia Dortmund’s most impressive signings in many years. If he continues to impress the way he does at the moment, Haaland might just be the player Dortmund would sell for the highest price by the time they do it.
The Norwegian forward is only 20 years old but his market value currently on Transfermarkt is already €100 million, although Dortmund could sell him for about €250 million if they want to. Plus with the way he’s shattering Champions League records, the youngster is set to be the next big thing in world football.
4. Luis Suarez [FC Barcelona To Atletico Madrid]
The fact that Luis Suarez left Barcelona to Atletico for free will still be talked about for years and will be regarded as one of the worst transfer decisions in FC Barcelona’s history. However, one man’s loss is another man’s gain. Thus, Atletico Madrid has struck gold with his arrival as a free agent.
Meanwhile, Suarez has been reminding everyone at Barcelona and other football fans who thought he’s finished that he still has a lot to offer to the beautiful game. The Uruguay international is one of the players that is leading Atletico’s charge for a new La Liga success.
5. Pedri [Union Deportiva Las Palmas To FC Barcelona]
FC Barcelona was lucky to capture a teenage Pedri for a mere €8 million from the ranks of Union Deportiva Las Palmas in the Canary Islands. Pedri is a player with the capacity of making history at Barcelona.
The teenager’s impact at the club has been swift and he is already one of Lionel Messi’s best partners in crime. Pedri is already drawing comparisons with Andres Iniesta and Xavi Hernandez but that’s too early for the youngster. But for all that we know, Pedri has got the talent and he obviously has a bright future ahead of him.
