3 of the Unlikeliest Football Transfers In The Summer Transfer Window 2020
With the endless speculation of the next football transfers to get our minds spinning over the months leading up to the Summer transfer window 2020, we thought it be good to list 3 of the unlikeliest football transfers to be confirmed by football clubs across the European continent. We very much assume that these three transfers are very much NOT going to happen and you'd probably have a better chance of seeing some returns with Grand National odds in the upcoming Aintree Racecourse than to bet on these three footie transfers.
Lionel Messi to Crystal Palace for £100M
It's often been said that the 32-year-old Argentine forward, who is often tagged by his flock of followers as a GOAT, no that's not the Ba Ba type animal but the 'Greatest Of All Time' type person, will need to join the English Premier League in order to prove himself against the best footballers of the world week in week out. What better club than Crystal Palace, the south London club will no doubt be needing someone at the top end of the pitch with constant speculation that their 'goal machine', Wilfried Zaha, is always looking for a way out of the club. It might actually happen this summer or maybe it might not. Lionel Messi has only one year left on his contract, so if he does want a move, the ball is in his court. Should this move go through, it might just eclipse that Emmanuel Adebayor signing that took place in January 2016 for a 6-month deal which sadly didn't extend beyond the summer of 2016, with Ade scoring one goal.
Serge Aurier to Real Madrid for £43M
The 27-year-old Spurs right-back seems to be in a constant battle to prove his doubters wrong, ever since his move from Paris Saint Germain to Spurs in August 2017, for £23M. With Spurs known for selling their best players to Real Madrid over recent years in Gareth Bale and Luka Modric, it isn't beyond the realms of possibility that the Ivorian defender might just end up being the backup plan for Spanish defender, Daniel Carvajal. Added to that, with Spurs Chairman, Daniel Levy, renowned for getting the best deals out of nothing, as was the case with Christian Eriksen, who only had six months left on his contract last month, yet Levy netted £16.9M for the transfer of the Dane playmaker to Inter Milan.
Cristiano Ronaldo to RB Leipzig for £75M
The 35-year-old Portuguese forward, who is also considered to be a GOAT by some of his fans from around the world, would absolutely thrive in the Bundesliga and what better team to join than the one team that is most disliked in the entire German league. RB Leipzig was only founded just over ten years ago and they are waiting for a marquee signing like Cristiano Ronaldo. Just imagine Timo Werner teaming up with Cristiano Ronaldo in front of a sell-out crowd of 42,959 at the Red Bull Arena, for every home game. Yep… Not going to happen.
