Top 5 Transfers
Robin van Persie
Transferred: Arsenal to Manchester United
Fee : €30.7 million This move definitely created a big splash as the prolific Dutchman told Arsenal goodbye to move to one of their fiercest rivals. RVP has already scored four goals for the Manchester club this season.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Thiago Silva
Transferred: AC Milan to PSG
Fee : Silva: €42 million and Ibrahimovic: €21 million Big-spending PSG added two of the highest-rated talents in Europe to their ranks and many expect them to win the French Ligue 1 with this duo as well as other big names they have bought.
Transferred: Tottenham to Real Madrid
Fee : €30 million This move was much heralded and after a long saga, the diminutive Croatian playmaker got his desired move to Madrid. He has already won a trophy in the Spanish Super Cup on his debut against Barcelona.
Transferred: Athletic Bilbao to Bayern Munich
Fee : €40 million
The solid defensive midfielder became the most expensive buy in Bundesliga history after the Bavarians splashed the cash to get the very promising Martinez who was a standout in the overachieving Bilbao side of last season.
Transferred: Lille to Chelsea
Fee : €40 million Eden Hazard was in high demand this summer. It was Roman Abramovich and Chelsea who were lucky enough to get the Belgian, however, and he has already racked up four assists and a goal in three matches for the Blues.
