The new season is fast approaching and great clubs in Europe have kicked off preparations from pre-season games to squad rebuilding, however, it’s well said that the best attack is a good defence.
And in this transfer market has a very busy one with great clubs in Europe trying to acquire more to strengthen the central position to face with more guarantees the demanding season that is about to begin.
Looking thus, below are the pairs of centrals that are being formed for the 2019/20 campaign .
The Serie A club have acquired Diego Godín, Inter Milan has a powerful defense that begins in the heart of the rear. The Uruguayan arrives to be the leader of the defensive line of Antonio Conte. With Milan Skriniar and De Vrij , the Italian coach lags behind him.
The Italian champions wants to make its defense a wall with De Ligt already on the team after being one of the signings of the transfer market, the Dutchman joins Giorgio Chiellini and Leonardo Bonnuci. The question is to know who will be the head couple of central for Maurizio Sarri.
United last season faced a disappointing campaign with leaking defence,but the acquisition of Harry Maguire at a record price, means the ‘Red Devils’ rearmed their rear and, a priori, Maguire would partner with Lindelof .
The ‘citizens’ have not yet caught too much fish in this summer window. One of its objectives is a central. The Argentine Otamendi could leave and, with the march of Kompany , Pep Guardiola needs a couple to accompany Laporte .
Valverde is clear. Its headquarters are Gerard Piqué and Lenglet . The coach has the mystery of Umtiti . The Frenchman, if he makes a good preseason, could sneak into the eleven holder of the Barça team. For the rest, Vermaelen has gone to Vissel Kobe from Iniesta and Murillo, to Sampdoria. Todibo is also pending the level that it displays in preseason.
Sergio Ramos and Raphäel Varane depart as titularísimos and the leaders of the defense center despite the arrival of Éder Militao . Nacho is the other alternative after the departure of Jesús Vallejo to Wolverhampton.
The great signing of the ‘reds’ came in winter last season with the incorporation of Van Dijk . The Dutchman became the sensation of last season in both the Premier League and the Champions League. The only signing for the rear was also the Dutch Van den Berg. His youth, however, forces him to continue tanning for the future.
Manolas has arrived in Naples from Carlo Ancelotti after paying 36 million euros to Rome. The reconstruction of the defense of the Italian team has begun with the Greek and will play in the center of the defense with Kalidou Koulibaly . The departure of Raúl Albiol Villarreal has meant that the Ancelotti team had to move.
The bombing arrived at the beginning of the year 2019 with the announcement of signing of Lucas Hernández by Bayern Munich . The French central arrives to be titularísimo in the eleven of Niko Kovac and presumably accompany Süle in the center of the defense. In the air is the future of Jerome Boateng after seven seasons in the Bavarian team. To strengthen the center of the rear, although he can play sideways, Pavard also arrived.
