2014 World Cup Has Done Wonders For the Summer Transfer Window
All it took was a tournament on the world stage to make every team in Europe salivate at the thought of attracting young talents. The 2014 World Cup has simply done wonders for some players that many may not have had the chance to look up or know. All talents were on display at the World Cup which has graciously paved the way for many players to make themselves noticed and that is exactly what happened. This year, we saw many of the big name players take a back seat to the next generation of players and it could not have come at a better time.
There are players that were on the radar of becoming something great such as James Rodriguez, Memphis Depay and Paul Pogba, but then there are players that may not ring a bell. Juan Cuadrado, Divock Origi, Antoine Griezmann, David Ospina and Keylor Navas top the list of young and possibly unknown talents that will make a splash this season by making a move to another club.
It has been less than a month since Germany raised the trophy, but we have all been witness to the 2014 Summer Transfer Window’s eruption. Origi was signed to Liverpool, Griezmann with Atletico Madrid, Ospina with Arsenal and Navas with Real Madrid. All the names that I mentioned have all been sought after heavily in the transfer rumors regarding top teams in the English Premier League, La Liga and Serie A.
The transfer window has one month left and it will continue to spew hot lava as more and more players will begin to take a leave to a new team. The next time these young players will display their talents will be on the club stage.
