We’re well into December now and with Christmas just around the corner, all of the Premier League’s managers are coming up with their lists of what they want their chairmen to drop under the tree.
The January transfer window is little over three weeks away and with more games and less time to recover than ever before, reinforcement are much needed for a lot of teams.
Here are the latest moves touted for January window…

SPONSORS WANT RONALDO
Manchester United have gone a few years without being linked with their former star Cristiano Ronaldo, but the rumour mill is churning again and it has emerged that the club’s shirt sponsors desperately want the Portuguese.
According to Auto Esporte, United’s shirt sponsors Chevrolet believe it would be so commercially viable that they would be willing to help finance a move for the Juventus forward.
Chevrolet has seen the positive impact of having Ronaldo promote products over the last two years during his time in Turin, with Juve’s shirt sponsor Jeep’s sales going up over that period.
Ronaldo’s arrival in 2018 also saw Juventus’ shares rose by 30 per cent on the Milan stock exchange after just a week.
Those factors have therefore reportedly encouraged Chevrolet to put their hands in their pockets and help finance his £500,000-a-week wages.
PARIS PLAY DOWN NEYMAR WISH
After inspiring PSG to beat Manchester United at Old Trafford last week, Neymar couldn’t help but tell journalists how much he wanted to be reunited with Lionel Messi – who is out of contract in July – next year.

“You know, it’s normal for Neymar to say that to an Argentinian journalist. He had to talk about Messi, it’s normal,” he told Canal+.
“We have to maintain respect for others. He’s a Barcelona player. When somebody talks about our players, we are not happy. So we don’t touch other people’s players. Now is not the time to think about the transfer window.
“We are very happy with the squad we have. We are thinking of our season and the end of the first part of the season, which was very complicated.”
DOUBLE YOUR MONEY
After some incredible performances since joining the club in January, Bruno Fernandes is already being lined up for a new double-your-money contract.
The Daily Mirror are reporting that Fernandes is set for a wage hike to £200,000-a-week after scoring 22 times and assisting 14 further goals in just 37 games for the club.
He still has three and a half years remaining on the contract he…
