Despite the fact that "silly season" is meant to be well and truly over, it would appear that many of our fellow sportswriters are so desperate to fill column inches that they are continuing to pump out transfer rumours on a daily basis.
Most of these rumours are never likely to become a reality, and some are simply laughable.
However, they do keep us entertained when football gets us down between September and January, and some of them do get the imagination working on just how the signing would affect the set up of a team.
In this article I'm going to take a look at 11 transfer rumours that concern top of the table clubs across the European leagues, and give my thoughts on how, if the rumour became a reality, the deal could potentially affect whichever title race the team signing the player is involved in.
I am not saying that any of these rumours will become reality, nor am I saying that the sources are reliable. I am simply giving my thoughts on 11 rumours that I found somewhat interesting and how they might affect title races.
I hope you enjoy. If you do enjoy, please have a read of this.
