The first edition of Khel Now’s weekly transfer window wrap is all about the single life…
With Manchester United spending an entire club’s worth on one player, it’s safe to say the bigwigs are ready to get their chequebooks out and head to the casino this summer.
Here at KhelNow, we give you pick of the rumours across the world with agents and players paying attention to their Whatsapp messengers now more than ever.
We start off with the mighty Gunners who one feels are like the guy who wants to spend on a date, but doesn’t know how much. Recent flings with Alexander Lacazette and Riyad Mahrez have all ended anything but well, with a flirtatious Chelsea also hovering around the corner and making eyes at Inter Milan forward Mauro Icardi. The North London club are rumoured to take along with them on the said date, a gift in the form of a bouquet coaff and pine smelling Olivier Giroud to break the ice.

Manchester City meanwhile have taken quite a dangerous route to add John Stones to Pep Guardiola’s squad. Similar to your ex updating her status to ‘Single’ before she has “the talk” with you, City registered the young Evertonian on their squad for the UEFA Champions League 25-man squad with Everton left wondering where it went wrong.
The suggested exodus of players who could fund this mischievous act could come from sales of Samir Nasri, Elaquim Mangala and Fernando, who apparently did have “the talk” with the club and well we all know how that goes.
PSG boss Unai Emery must be beaming like a newlywed, his recruitment continues with Real forward Jese Rodriguez joining the Parisians for a reported £ 21 m. He’s a keeper this one and Real Madrid have acknowledged the fact and inserted a first refusal clause in his contract to ensure they have the right to match the offerings of any future suitors.
That’s all for now, We’ll see you once again same time next week and hopefully by then some of you would have found love.
