The Premier League pre-season is always a time of excitement and anticipation, as fans get their first glimpse of the new season. This year is no different, with a number of big-name signings and new managers creating plenty of hype.
Manchester City have been the most active in the transfer market, bringing in Erling Haaland, Julian Alvarez, Kalvin Phillips, and Stefan Ortega Moreno. These signings have only added to the expectation that Pep Guardiola’s side will be challenging for the title again this year.
Liverpool have also been busy, signing Darwin Nunez, Fabio Carvalho, and Calvin Ramsay. Jurgen Klopp’s side will be looking to avenge their Champions League final defeat to Real Madrid last season, and they will be confident of doing so with their new-look attack.
Chelsea have also made some big changes, with Raheem Sterling, Kalidou Koulibaly, and Nathan Ake all joining the club. Thomas Tuchel will be hoping that these signings can help him to close the gap on the top two teams.
Arsenal, Tottenham, and Manchester United have all also made some signings, and they will all be hoping to improve on their performances from last season.
