A lot of the recent transfer speculation had been written in a way which suggested the campaign was over, and almost assumed that footballers would just be able to move soon.
Of course, play is starting up again in various countries, and it means that lots of meaningful football still needs to be played.
As a result, we are starting to see the familiar media training come in to play as possible targets insist they are only focused on playing games for now.
Schalke forward Rabbi Matondo had emerged as a possible alternative for Red Devils this summer, with the former Man City man named as a backup plan if they couldn’t sign Jadon Sancho.
The Welsh winger is less polished that Sancho but he would probably be cheaper and his pace would be an intriguing option, but he’s done his best to shut down the rumours for now:
“Obviously there are people talking, asking me and stuff but I am not really thinking about it. I am concentrating on Schalke. I still have to achieve my goals for Schalke. I am just concentrating on that and we just see how things go, but for now, I am just focused on Schalke.”
“Hopefully I can get into the team and help them climb up the table”
