Latest transfers

The winter transfer window opened today, and will continue on until midnight on 30 th January. Without doubt the biggest news is the return of “El Niño” Fernando Torres to Atlético Madrid, the Spanish international looking to re-boot his career under Simeone after a mediocre time at Chelsea and an unsuccessful loan period at AC Milan. With financial fair-play rules in force in Spain, Atleti had to let someone go to free up space on their payroll, and Cerci will be travelling to AC Milan in a loan swap deal between the two players (Chelsea sold Torres to Milan first as part of the arrangement). Meanwhile Valencia have also moved early to tie up Argentinian international Enzo Pérez from Benfica, a player they were unable to sign in the summer as new owner Peter Lim had not completed the purchase of the club. Elsewhere Málaga’s Roqué Santa Cruz and Pablo Pérez will be moving on, and two Jonathans will be changing clubs, Pereira joining Valladolid on loan after his stay at Rayo was cut short, and Viera returning home to Las Palmas. That’s just the beginning, although the stringent fair-play rules will restrict many clubs from adding to their squads, and of course Barcelona will be unable to sign anyone after their appeal against FIFA’s transfer ban was turned down.
