MataWith the glitz and celebration of New Year 2014, comes the opening day of mid-season transfer market window. As the clock turns past midnight of Dec 31st, football players wish for Championship, and better fortune in their career; While Football managers wish for their team’s glories and also for great players to achieve success.

Although mid-season is not particularly a hot season in the transfer market, it is the best chance for struggling teams to fill in their team’s vulnerabilities in their hunt for glory and survival. It is also the best chance for out of favour players, who’s teams have no chance of Champions League qualification, or domestic league trophy, to move on to stronger teams. This mid-season is particularly critical to players, because players vying to feature in their national team’s 2014 World Cup squad need to play as often and as best as possible for their clubs to be chosen by their national team managers.

So here we will observe Top players in need of a move in January:

  • Shinji Kagawa: Manchester United’s 24 years old Japanese midfielder, has got very few team starts by David Moyes this season. The talented Asian Player of the Year, who is eager to make the cut to Japan’s World Cup squad, is reportedly determined to leave Manchester United, with possible move back to his previous club, Borussia Dortmund.
  • Diego Milito: Inter Milan’s 34 year old striker is particularly in need of a transfer move as his contract ends at the end of this season, and with Inter struggling in Serie-A this season, moving to another team and shining would be his last chance to be called up to the Argentina national team.
  • Juan Mata: Chelsea’s disappointed benched midfielder has long been eager to move on, but each time Chelsea refused to sell the striker to English teams. It seems Chelsea officials have kept their stance on this issue and although open for negotiations for him, but are not willing to sell him to an English competitor. Jose Mourinho’s recent comment sums it up:  Jose Mourinho: “I would rather sell Juan Mata to Wolves for 50p than Man Utd for 100m.”— Sky Sports News (@SkySportNews_) January 3, 2014
  • Michael Essien: Although he used to be Mourinho’s favourite central player, Michael Essien is not getting enough playing time that he wants after his move back to Chelsea from Real Madrid. The Ghanian International desperately needs playing time in another team to be called up and shine at the 2014 World Cup for Ghana.
  • Mirko Vucinic: The Juventus striker is also reportedly considering his options, as he is second choice to Tevez and Llorente most of the time. And with Juventus crashing out of Champions League, he’ll be even more determined to leave. There are reports that Arsenal is in hunt for him, but on loan basis, however Juventus is only negotiating over a permanent deal.
  • Fernando Llorente: The Juventus striker has long been eyed by English clubs and seems to be attracting interest this window as well. The Spanish star is hoping to be fully fit and first choice in a strong team that is in contention for Champions League, that can boost his chances as first choice striker in Spain’s World Cup squad.
  • Claudio Pizarro: The Peruvian striker who moved to Bayern Munich last season has seen his playing time significantly reduced this season and is currently a third option after Muller and Mandzukic. And it gets worse as Bayern Munich just bought another top striker, Lewandowski. It is reported that Besiktas is eager to sign the out of favour Peruvian striker.
  • Mario Mandzukic: Bayern Munich’s Croatian striker’s prospect is also threatened by arrival of Dortmund star, Lewandowsk this summer. His spot in Croatia’s World Cup squad may not be jeopardized, but the top striker is certainly not used being a second option. There are reports that Arsenal is eager to sign him.
  • Wesley Sneijder: Teh 29 year old Dutch star, may well play his last World Cup this year. Yet he is currently out of favour by Dutch team manager, Van Gaal, having been left out in two critical World Cup qualifiers. Although shining at Turkey’s Galatasaray,  he may be tempted to a move to European top 5 leagues again, to prove his worth to be called up to the Netherlands’ national team. Manchester United is reportedly eager to sign Sneijder to boost their midfield.
