The winter market has come to an end. From last December 31, until January 31, and in some leagues until February 1, the great European clubs had the opportunity to reinforce their teams or look with great interest to the players who have stood out in the After six months. With this, not only new players arrive at the squads, but during the summer market, the great signings will come true.

Meanwhile, from LatinAmerican Post we tell you what this winter market left.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic

One of the first signings that were announced was that of the Swedish striker from LA Galaxy, an MLS team. In his second stage with AC Milan, the 38-year-old showed that age is only a number. Upon his arrival, he broke a record in the match in which his team played against Udinese, a suffered game that ended with the victory of Milan, 3-2.

Thanks to this, Ibrahimovic managed to complete 150 wins during his Serie A career. In addition, he is the fastest player to achieve this figure, and thus exceeded Esteban Cambiasso's record. The Swede arrived for 3.5 million euros to the Italian team, which hopes to get out of the bad streak that afflicts him for several seasons.

Javier “Chicharito” Hernández

When one star leaves, another one arrives. Or that, at least, is what LA Galaxy managers think. Since the departure of the Swede, they managed to hire the Mexican, who was playing with Sevilla. In the Spanish team, he played about fifteen games in which he scored three goals.

In a transaction of around nine million euros, the Mexican striker arrived to stay for three seasons, with the possibility of a fourth. Although it is not known exactly how much he will receive, it is speculated that he is the highest-paid player in the American League. In addition, the footballer himself referred to his new stage as “the principle of starting to retire (...) I are going to see the positive side and it will be incredible, but like it or not, I am already retiring from the European dream”.

Bruno Fernandes

The Portuguese, now former Sporting player, is the star of one of the great movements left by the winter market. According to the portal 20 minutes, Manchester United disbursed around 80 million euros for the Portuguese, making him one of the 20 most expensive players in the history of the team.

In this way, the midfielder will have a contract until 2025 with United, a team that seeks to strengthen the front positions due to the uncertainty of the departure of Paul Pogba, who at several times has been interested in leaving the Premier. With the incorporation of Fernandes, the 'Red Devils' are expected to resume the path that leads them to success, something that in past seasons they have not been able to achieve.

Steven Bergwijn

One of the first reinforcements for Mourinho in Tottenham was the Dutch striker, Steven Bergwijn. Because of the injury of the star of the Spurs', Harry Kane, it was necessary to have support in that position

Coming from the PSV, the 22-year-old signed a contract until 2025 in a transaction that amounted to 30 million euros. The player stands out for being able to play as an extreme "or act as a false 9", according to Marca. The same media stands out for his athletic physique and his ability to eliminate rivals. It will undoubtedly be a necessary piece for Mourinho, in Tottenham, since the results have not yet convinced.

Krzysztof Piatek

The Polish was in the eyes of several European clubs. One of the most interested was Barcelona, a team that after Luis Suarez's injury urgently needed a striker to strengthen the area. However, the Blaugrana team closed the doors of a possible deal, stating that the striker does not fit within the sports demands' of the club.

Given this, the revelation of Series A was signed by the Hertha of Berlin; a team that disbursed around 27 million euros for the player. It is expected that with his arrival in the Bundesliga, the player will recover his career, after a decline, because in the German league he will be able to show that he fits in being a very complete player.
