Real Madrid, Manchester City, Barcelona, and other clubs already made their move with the biggest transfers with the most expensive signings.
Summer has always been the most significant for clubs in signing reinforcements.
Big deals happened, and big names moved. Let’s list out the costliest purchases so far in the summer transfer window, with La Liga’s clubs having 3 names in the top 10.
Figures by Transfermarkt
From Monaco to Real Madrid
In two different transfer windows, Real Madrid brought in two big signings Camavinga and Tchouameni, both from Ligue 1.
And it’s very clear that Los Blancos is looking at a whole new generation of midfielders with Modric-Kroos-Casemiro will soon pass their peaks.
From Benfica to Liverpool
With the departure of Sadio Mane (who joined Bayern Munich), Liverpool did not show hesitation in bringing in a replacement.
Entered Darwin Nunez, whose arrival is to team up with Mohamed Salah and Luis Diaz in an attack that just got younger and more electric. The former Benfica even scored in the Community Shield against Man City, which won him the very first trophy with Liverpool, what a start!
Matthijs de Ligt
From Juventus to Bayern Munich
Was very hyped upon his arrival at Juventus (85m euro) 3 years ago, the former Ajax star turned out to be a big flop with the Italian club.
However, Bayern still decided to go for the Dutch defender with the hope of reliving the performance that rocked the whole euro when he was still with Ajax. De Ligt would have to battle Dayot Upamecano for the starting XI order.
From Borussia Dortmund to Manchester City
Followed his father’s footstep, Erling Haaland became the second generation of the family put on the blue kit of Man City.
At the cost of 60m euro, the 21-year old striker is considered a ‘steal’ for EPL’s champion, as he is known as a goalscoring machine with 86 goals and 23 assists in only two seasons at Borussia Dortmund.
From Everton to Tottenham Hotspur
One of the very first big signings of Antonio Conte under his reign at Tottenham. The attacking trio of Spurs is very frightening with Kane-Son-Richarlison.
From Leeds to Barcelona
Chelsea wanted him, Arsenal offered for him, but it was Barcelona that convinced the Brazilian winger to join.
He had an amazing start by scoring a beauty in the pre-season El Clasico against Real Madrid.
From Ajax to Manchester United
A surprising signing from Red Devils, but it seemed like new coach Erik Ten Hag is looking to build his new team with familiar names.
The defender used to be under Ten Hag’s command during his reign at Ajax. Lisandro may offer the solution to the instability of Man United’s defense.
From Manchester City to Chelsea
Left behind years of scoring goals and winning titles with Man City, Sterling departed to join another Blues from London.
From Manchester City to Arsenal
This is a really serious deal done by the London club after the departure of Alexander Lacazette.
From Sevilla to Barcelona
Kounde is a real hijack by Barcelona this summer, as the French defender rejected Chelsea’s offer despite the higher figure, in both fee and wage.
From Leeds to Manchester City
Man City is looking at a very strong squad this new season with the arrivals of Haaland and Philips. So far, the reigning EPL champion has the most total transfer fee paid with only two signings (over 100m euros).
From Bayern Munich to Barcelona
At the age of 33, the Polish star is still a big name on the transfer market.
Left Bayern Munich after 8 years of banging goals and winning a cabinet full of trophies, Lewandowski headed to Camp Nou for new challenges.
