Loan movements of certain players to clubs are beneficial in the long term both for the players themselves and for the parent club. The club benefits from the release of players who are currently not needed and players gain relevant exposure and experience.
It is not uncommon for these soccer players to return from a loan move as more dynamic athletes and individuals due to their spell on a different club.
Players can improve their repertoire and skill set in a different environment and then most of the time they return to the parent club to claim their claim on the team and starting lineup.
Parent clubs, on the other hand, have the opportunity to retain the property rights of the players that are loaned out and then enjoy the fruits of player development in subsequent years.
As such, FootTheBall check out the top 10 loan players who can return to their parent club and have a significant impact on their luck next season in club football
1) GARETH BALE (REAL MADRID)
The Welsh player transferred the loan to London to play for Tottenham Hotspur in his bid to represent Wales in UEFA Euro 2020 this summer. And he lit up the English top flight last season with the Lilywhites.
Bale scored 11 goals and delivered 2 assists in the Premier League as he was the Spurs’ third best attacking talent behind the duo of Harry Kane and Son Heung-min. With Carlo Ancelotti back at the helm in Madrid, Bale could be on the brink of his rebirth with the Italian.
Bale, playing from the right wing could bring a creativity and rhythm that Real Madrid has not found on the left wing with Eden Hazard. The Welshman can help them prepare another title challenge in Spain for rivals Atlético de Madrid.
2) JESSE LINGARD (MANCHESTER UNITED)
The Englishman was loaned out to London club West Ham United and literally took the Premier League by storm in the second half of the 2020-21 season.
The Hammers qualified for European soccer by securing a sixth place and reserving their place in the Europa League for next season.
And Lingard was instrumental to them, scoring 9 goals and providing 5 assists for David Moyes’ team in 16 appearances since January 2021, as the London team wowed viewers with their attractive soccer brand.
Lingard was unlucky not to be included in England’s team for Euro 2020 this summer and for next season he can team up with Paul Pogba and newcomer Jadon Sancho at the Theater of Dreams as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team tries to win. his first Premier League. title since 2013
3) CRISTIAN ROMERO (JUVENTUS)
Juventus need fresh legs in defense to help players like Chiellini and Bonucci Bianconeri prepare for life as title contenders rather than defending Serie A champions.
Juventus could barely qualify for the Champions League next season on the last day of Serie A due to a slip by Napoli.
Meanwhile, Cristian Romero finished above his parent club in third place in Serie A with Atalanta and was even called up for the Argentina team for the 2021 Copa América due to his brilliant performances for his loan club in Italy.
He falls into the category of players who thrive once they are sent to a different club on a loan deal for a season or two, as evidenced by his meteoric rise in Bergamo.
Romero will be useful to Massimiliano Allegri in his attempt to rebuild the self-confidence and identity of the team before the start of next season in the Italian top flight.
4) ALVARO MORATA (ATLÉTICO MADRID)
The Rojiblancos He lacked a teammate up front for Uruguayan forward Luis Suárez last season, although it didn’t affect the former Barcelona player’s performances in front of goal, but Morata may be the key to increasing Suárez’s production next season.
The Spaniard can play as Suárez’s assistant up front and grant him the license to roam more freely in the last third of the pitch while Atlético de Madrid defends their league title from falling into the hands of Barcelona or Real Madrid.
Morata performed well for Juventus, scoring 11 goals in 32 appearances in the Italian top flight, and will act as the perfect right-hand man for Luis Suárez up front starting next season.
He also scored 3 goals for Spain at UEFA Euro 2020, all of them in the knockout phase when Spain reached the semi-finals of the four-year tournament.
On top of that, he has gained a reasonable amount of experience in England, Italy and Spain thanks to his transfer moves and permanent transfers and will be eager to go alongside other players on Diego Simeone’s side.
5) MOISE KEAN (EVERTON)
Everton finished in 10th place last season in the Premier League. The Toffees conceded more goals than they scored in the English top flight during the 2020-21 season.
His goal difference at the end of the season was (-1) and Rafael Benítez is hoping Moise Kean will emulate his performances from last season in Merseyside this time.
The 21-year-old scored 13 goals in 26 appearances for Paris-Saint Germain in the 2020-21 campaign as Les Parisiens finished second in Ligue 1, just one point behind champion Lille.
And Kean will be tasked with supporting club stalwarts Dominic Calvert Lewin and Richarlison in advance as they try to improve on their final 10th place last term.
6) ALPHONSE AREOLA (PARIS-SAINT GERMAIN)
While Moise Kean will make the trip from France to England, Areola will take the other route to rejoin parent club Paris-Saint Germain after his stint at Fulham that saw him get regular minutes on the pitch.
And despite Fulham relegation from the Premier League, Areola was named the best player in the Fulham squad by fans and fans.
The former Real Madrid goalkeeper kept 9 clean sheets for Fulham in the Premier League.
Les Parisiens need to work on their defensive game as they scored 28 goals last season – 5 more than eventual league champions Lille and Alphonse Areola can play a useful backup role for starting goalkeeper Keylor Navas
7) MARTIN ODEGAARD (REAL MADRID)
With Luka Modric in the twilight of his career, it seems sensible for Real Madrid to be on the lookout for young talents who can replace the Croatian captain in the middle of the park, although it would be foolish to look for a similar replacement.
Luka Modric will turn 36 this September and it is the perfect time to The whites to bring in Odegaard from Arsenal and give him time to adjust to the Real Madrid first team.
The Norwegian is the youngest player to play in a qualifier for the European Championship, in the top flight of Norway and the youngest player to play. The Meringues.
His move to London was aimed at expanding his repertoire and now seems the right time to call him back to the Spanish capital from North London for the next season in Spain.
8) LUKA JOVIC (REAL MADRID)
Lack of playing time in Madrid caused Kuka Jovic to be loaned out to former club Eintracht Frankfurt in Germany in the 2021 winter transfer window. In the 2019-20 season, Jovic scored just 2 goals in 17 appearances for The whites since the club won the League.
But midway through the 2020-21 season, he was loaned out to Eintracht Frankfurt, where he scored 4 goals and delivered 2 assists for the German club as they finished in fifth place and qualified for the Europa League in 2021-22.
It will be an excellent backup option for French striker Karim Benzema in Madrid as Los Blancos aim to regain the La Liga title after being defeated by rivals Atlético de Madrid on the final day of La Liga.
9) HARVEY ELLIOTT (LIVERPOOL)
Harvey Elliott is a right winger who was loaned out by Liverpool at the start of the 2020-21 season to championship club Blackburn Rovers in the English second division.
The 18-year-old impressed the Riversiders in the Championship despite finishing 15th, scoring 7 goals and delivering 11 assists. Liverpool looked somewhat jaded and lethargic last season.
And Jurgen Klopp can definitely use a breath of fresh air by giving Harvey Elliott a break in the Liverpool squad next season, while resting key players like Salah and Mane during cup games.
Pedro Porro, a 21-year-old Spanish right-back / right-back, has been one of many Spanish players acquired by Pep Guardiola from La Liga. The winger practiced his trade in La Liga before reaching the Premier League.
And last season he was at Sporting CP de Portugal when the Greens and Whites won their first league title in almost 2 decades, as they only left 20 goals in the entire season in 34 games.
Porro would be a good backup option for right-back Kyle Walker at the Etihad this summer, and given his versatility as a right-back, he would further enhance the depth of the Premier League champions on the squad.
