Liverpool's deal for £90m star in jeopardy as Manchester United to beat Reds to £12.5m 'wonder kid'
It is nearly the half-way mark of the January transfer window, yet of the deals completed the fees involved have yet to reach £30million for the 20 Premier League clubs.
A total of 55 deals have been completed worth £29.9, half of which comes from Ivan Cavaleiro £15million switch from Wolves to Fulham. It could mean a number of things: Premier League clubs don't need to do too much business, they are waiting to do business or the money isn't there for reinforcements. It is likely to be the second one, especially with Manchester United on the verge of completing a huge deal for a Portuguese ace, while Liverpool have been linked with a move a £90m Barcelona star.
In the coming two weeks there is likely to be much more high profile deals being done or simply deals worth big money as clubs begin to panic as the clock ticks down towards the closure of the window.
