Players are more likely to let the secrets of their transfer to another team than ever before, but does this openness help or hinder the players negotiations, or is it all for the media?
One player which didnt leave anything to the imagination was M'vila. The Rubin Kazan player was on loan at Sunderland FC last year. The player openly wanted to continue his loan spell at Sunderland, but it seems the club had different ideas. He posted on his personal instagram that he's trying to call the club, to no avail - quite heartbreaking really.
There has been loads of stirring on social media, much of which comes directly from the players. Adidas got involved by posting this video, saying the media talk 'blah blah blah', with the caption 'dont believe everything you read in the papers'.
