Football clubs are likely to be much more prudent when it comes to spending this summer as they all feel the pinch of the global pandemic. Empty stadiums, the lack of money-spinning pre-season tours and a reduction in advertising revenues will all likely see clubs tightening the purse strings. As such, we might expect to see a few more loan signings rather than permanent transfers. Loanees will command lower fees whilst their parent clubs might be happy to get the players off the wage bill. Loan signings can often flop, but sometimes, they can work our really, really well. We’ve taken a look at some of the best loan signings of all time, if any loanees this summer can meet these standards, they’ll have done very well!
