Mahrez, Coutinho, Barcelona, Leicester, Liverpool, moves could happen, Spanish Window still open

DATE: 01.09.2017 - THE CUNNING FOX - NEWSDESK

 

The transfer window is still wide open in Spain, and as Riyad Mahrez is reported flying around to European airports, former Monaco chief executive, Tor-Kristian Karlsen, explains his theory behind it all

Tor-Kristian Karlsen is well informed and his knowledge of how transfers are ongoing and happens during the late hours of a transfer window, was well documented by him, during Norwegian TV2's "deadline-day" covering.

Karlsen explained how things worked until the end, and not only Leicester City staff members "were jogging" between buidlings, players also made their journeys. The fact that Danny Drinkwater waited in his car outside Chelsea's training ground is well explained today.

This sounds a bit crazy, but it happens in all countries and clubs during the last day of the window. According to Karlsen, who has great insight in european football transfer dealings, a lot is allready agreed. The player and the new clubs, via their agents, has allready agreed their personal terms. The accept from the club who own the player is the final end to the transfer.

Rumours about Drinkwater has been there for a while, but no one confirms deals before it's done and player agents work behind the schenes and makes things happen. Chelsea and Drinkwater must in this case have spoken in forehand, and probably everything between player and new club were sorted out when Drinkwater handed in his transfer request.

So was this the end to transfers until January, no. TCF believe that more could happen this Friday. Riyad Mahrez is still waiting on Barcelona, and Barcelona are wating on Coutinho and Liverpool.

The fact that Mahrez landed in England and might be in Spain as this is written, is down to agent work and not a personal stunt by Mahrez. All of the moves happening late in the transfer window, is according to Karlsen, a well set play and because of the time limits players must be in reach for medicals and such.

Manchester United, Chelsea, Tottenham, Arsenal and Barcelona were all rumoured to be after Mahrez. Nothing happened in England, so he will not be on the move to a Premier League club, but Barca is still an option.

But Barca is more keen to land Coutinho from Liverpool, and if that happens Mahrez is a lost case, or could they go for both players, or could Real Madrid go for Mahrez in the end. Things happens fast and quickly.

When Barcelona and Real Madrid are knocking on doors, no one will turn them down, no one, so we just have to wait and see how the fish are swimming in the pond.

We all have to wait until Saturday morning before we know if Mahrez is staying or going, but to see him travelling around Europe is easy to explain as private deals settled, medicals must be made and everything must be sorted out in limited time, and players must be present for that to happen.

Coutinho is a key, Mahrez could be the option if that fails, so nothing wrong in what Mahrez is doing. The fact that Leicester decided to drop their asking price of 40 million on Drinkwater, and accept 35 million, makes it possible to see that happens with Mahrez as well.

Sorry, but if the fee agreed is 35 million or more, LCFC should let the player leave and move on. Drinkwater left, Mahrez should be given the chance to do the same, having players around with a desire to be elsewhere is not good long term.
