Top 5 Best Loan Deals of the January Transfer Window


Best Loan Deals: Loan deals can prove to be temporary adjustments of great effect. The winter transfer window is usually quiet compared to the summer one. However, some European clubs, especially those in the Premier League, have been quite active during the transfer window and some notable deals have been created in the past few weeks. And below will be the top 5 best loan deals of the January 2023 transfer window.

Top 5 best loan deals of the January transfer window

1/ Joao Cancelo (Manchester City to Bayern Munich)


The most surprising move of the January transfer window is the loan of Joao Cancelo from Manchester City to Bayern Munich. Cancelo has made a big impact at Manchester City and his versatility has been a blessing in recent seasons. However, Cancelo’s form has dipped this season, and according to the Daily Mail, he has failed to meet Pep Guardiola’s disciplinary requirements.

Cancelo is reported to have fallen out with Guardiola after he found out he would not be starting in the FA Cup match against Arsenal on January 28th. The Portuguese defender has not hidden his disappointment at not playing since the World Cup 2022. And according to reports, Cancelo even threatened to leave the club.

Therefore, he was very happy to accept Bayern Munich’s loan offer because his relationship with Guardiola has become so bad that it cannot be repaired. This is a great deal for Bayern Munich, who have the option to make the move permanent for 70 million euros in the summer. The Bavarian club has found a world-class full-back who will help them win the highest honors this season.

2/ Joao Felix (Atletico Madrid to Chelsea)


After a disappointing spell at Atletico Madrid under Diego Simeone, Joao Felix is in need of a change of scenery. Atletico Madrid convinced him to extend his contract until 2027 to maintain his transfer market value and spent 11 million Euros on his loan.

Chelsea has many forwards but Felix may be the most technically gifted among them. After a bright debut for Chelsea, Felix was sent off directly and is currently serving a 3-match suspension. Felix can provide the much-needed creativity in Chelsea’s attacking third and could be a game-changer for their season.

3/ Marcel Sabitzer (Bayern Munich to Manchester United)


Manchester United confirmed on the final day of the transfer window that Christian Eriksen would have to sit out until May due to an ankle eye injury. It seemed like there was little time to find a replacement, but somehow they succeeded in poaching Marcel Sabitzer. The Bayern Munich midfielder is a great replacement for Eriksen, and his desire to play more at Manchester United will become a reality.

In addition to Eriksen, Red Devils’ midfielders Donny van de Beek and Scott McTominay are also sitting out. Therefore, Sabitzer’s arrival is a big boon for the Manchester City club. The former RB Leipzig player is an excellent box-to-box midfielder and can become a very good partner for Casemiro.

4/ Pedro Porro (Sporting Lisbon to Tottenham Hotspur)


This is just a loan move from Sporting Lisbon in a professional sense. Spurs have signed a loan contract for Spanish player Pedro Porro valued at 5 million Euros until the end of the season. They have an obligation to make the transfer official in the summer for a fee of 39 million Euros.

Spurs have acquired the services of this versatile full-back on the final day of the winter transfer window, and he is a fantastic signing for them. Pedro can play as a right-back, left-back, or winger. The 23-year-old player has been in excellent form this season, scoring 3 goals and making 4 assists after 26 appearances across all competitions for Sporting Lisbon.

5/ Arnaut Danjuma (Villarreal to Tottenham Hotspur)


Arnaut Danjuma moves from Villarreal to Tottenham Hotspur on a loan deal for the remainder of the season. According to BBC, Spurs beat Everton to secure the transfer of Danjuma. This will be the second time that Danjuma plays for an English club after playing for Bournemouth from 2019 to 2021. Danjuma scored 17 goals and had 8 assists in 52 appearances for The Cherries before joining Villarreal.

He was a standout player for the Yellow Submarines helping the team reach the UEFA Champions League knockout stage last season. Danjuma is a much-needed addition to Spurs’ attack as players like Richarlison and Son Heung-min have struggled to perform this season. The winger scored in his Tottenham debut against Preston North End and has had a bright start at the North London club.
