When the said move involves uprooting from one country to another, the situation becomes further complicated, as the lives and families of the players in question also get involved.
As of such, a transfer isn’t merely a speculation on Monday and a deal by Friday.

Such a situation seems to be on the verge of affecting United as well in their pursuit of a recent target.
As per Le 10 Sport, Lucas Moura’s partner, Larissa Saad, seems to have major reservations about a move to Manchester.
The prime issue of concern appears to be the weather, with the infamous wet and cold climate of Manchester a stark difference from Paris.
Further, the source added that a conversation that she held with Angel Di Maria’s wife seems to have further strengthened the doubt, due to the latter’s prior experience during the Argentine’s brief stint at Old Trafford.
Therefore, Mourinho’s intention to land a natural winger could be severely hampered. PSG were believed to be willing to listen to offers from €40 million for the 25-year-old, who has lost favor at the Ligue 1 outfit following the arrival of superior talents.
But now, United could face a massive disappointment, and channel their efforts elsewhere, if the report has any truth to it. To add to the fray is the fact that the couple has a two-month-old daughter. and a full move might be an unnecessary inconvenience.
But the month still has several days left, and it will be vital to see how their attempt goes on.
