So the January transfer window closes at 11pm and with a lunchtime deadline for new signings to feature in the midweek round of games, will it have been a busy morning or will it have been a slow go as club staff work busily to avoid the late disappointments that occur when the time ticks away.
It’s 13.20 and the breaking news of the day is that the probably worst kept secret is now official. Pep Guardiola is to take over from Manuel Pellegrini at the end of the season. A three year deal….which would be interesting if the City end the season with a couple of trophies in the cabinet.
It seems to be a mostly loan day as several players make temporary moves till the end of the season. A flick through the completed transfers show more loans than anything. Debuchy is on the way to France after Wenger rejected United’s interest.
It will be interesting to see how the afternoon unfolds.
