The transfer window has been open for two months, and for two months we social media girls have been scrambling to cover all the news breaking left, right and centre!
Here are certain trends we saw develop:
1. The ‘Hot’ Stories
There are always a few stories that take centre stage during the transfer window, this year it was Keagan Dolly, Knowledge Musona and Thabo Qalinge.
2. Twists & Turns
Transfers are not always straightforward and this year was no different. With Musona it was a ‘will he, won’t he’ in his indecision on whether to move to Chiefs. With Dolly, Sundowns waited ages to finally get their man, only to loan him out for the season back to his club! And with Qalinge, well he was linked to more clubs than we can remember!
3. It Takes Three To Tango
Even though the likelihood of players such as Itumeleng Khune, Bernard Parker and Siphiwe Tshabalala being allowed to leave Kaizer Chiefs was low, once discovering interest from clubs in Germany, Turkey and China, the Siya crew couldn’t help but speculate on their future. Yet, no matter how strong interest is, it takes all three parties - both clubs and the players - to make a deal happen.
