10. Aaron Wan-Bissaka (Crystal Palace to Manchester United) – £50million
It perhaps wasn’t the position which needed the upgrade at Old Trafford but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer now has a superb talent on his hands.
The right-back, nicknamed The Spider, will make them more solid at the back and has the potential to improve going forward given he was initially a winger in Crystal Palace’s academy.
9. Tanguy Ndombele (Lyon to Tottenham) – £55million
In what might be one of the deals of the summer, Spurs have upgraded their midfield by signing the French international.
Ndombele’s dribbling and incisive passing in the middle of the pitch will help Mauricio Pochettino’s team get back to their best after a campaign where they had to patch up their squad to make it through a gruelling injury-plagued year.
8. Luka Jovic (Eintracht Frankfurt to Real Madrid) – £58million
One of the finest young poachers in world football, the Serbian was an inspired loan signing from Benfica by the Germans two summers ago.
After 34 goals in 70 games they jumped at the chance to activate a £7million clause in his contract back in April.
Just two months later they have sold him for almost ten times the amount – although around £10million is set to go to Benfica as part of their arrangement.
7. Rodri (Atletico Madrid to Manchester City) – £63million
With Fernandinho, aged 34, approaching the end of his career the time was right for Pep Guardiola to sign his eventual successor.
The Brazilian will get a new deal, so vital is he to the club, but expect Rodri to get plenty of game time after his huge move from LaLiga.
Rodri is often compared to Sergio Busquets so it’s easy to see why Man City have swooped.
6. Frenkie de Jong (Ajax to Barcelona) – £65milllion
What else can be said about the talented young Dutch midfielder?
De Jong showed Real Madrid, Juventus, and Tottenham his class in the Champions League, while England were also finding it tough against him in the UEFA Nations League.
He’s set to become a key player in Ernesto Valverde’s team almost immediately.
5. Matthijs De Ligt (Ajax to Juventus) – £67million
One of the most drawn out deals of the summer was final done with Juventus securing the much coveted signature of De Ligt.
Several of Europe’s top clubs tried to land the 19-year-old defender before he eventually elected to head to Turin.
4. Lucas Hernandez (Atletico Madrid to Bayern Munich) – £80million
One of several departures from Diego Simeone’s side this summer, Hernandez was being tracked by the Bavarian behemoths for some time.
In the end the German side bit the bullet and paid the French World Cup winner’s release clause.
3. Eden Hazard (Chelsea to Real Madrid) – £88million
No surprises here. The Belgian was always looking likely to leave Stamford Bridge this summer and this has now come to pass.
He’ll be heading to the Spanish capital and attempt to fill the boots of Cristiano Ronaldo, who left the club last year.
2. Antoine Griezmann (Atletico Madrid to Barcelona) – £108million
The French World Cup winner’s long-running transfer saga finally ended when Barcelona announced his signing on July 12.
Griezmann’s move to the Nou Camp was one of football’s worst kept secrets, however the Catalans wanted to wait until they could activate his £108million release clause.
Atletico have contested the fee, arguing that Barcelona and Griezmann agreed a deal before the release clause dropped from £180million.
1. Joao Felix (Benfica to Atletico Madrid) – £113million
Now the second most expensive teenager ever behind Kylian Mbappe, the Portuguese wonderkid will play in LaLiga next year as a replacement for the outgoing Antoine Griezmann.
From his full breakthrough in the first-team at the start of January he scored 13 Primeira Liga goals in 19 games, as well as netting in the Europa League too.
He’s a creative force as well, registering eight assist in all competitions.
Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane is eyeing a massive squad overhaul this summer after a disappointing campaign, with several big names linked to the club.
After a trophyless year and three new managers, there is expected to be plenty of change between now and Real’s first match of the 2019/20 season.
Eden Hazard is edging closer to a move to the Bernabeu, while fellow Premier League star Christian Eriksen, is also reportedly a target after confirming he wants to leave Tottenham and has been tipped to succeed Luka Modric.
The 13-time Champions League winners have already wrapped up deals for Eder Militao and Luka Jovic, while Rodrygo Goes will also move to the Spanish capital this summer having secured his signature last year.
Jovic has joined from Eintracht Frankfurt after agreeing a six-year deal with the LaLiga giants, despite only penning permanent terms with Eintracht in April, having initially moved to the Bundesliga club on loan in June 2017.

Ferland Mendy is also being closely monitored by Zidane after the 23-year-old starred for Lyon in Ligue 1, with French and Spanish media outlets reporting that he is on the verge of completing a a €50 million (£44million) transfer.
However, on their Tiwtter account, Lyon have strenuously denied any agreement has taken place for their left-back.
Gareth Bale still has three years left on a lucrative contract at Real, but has been told he does not fit into the legendary Frenchman’s plans and the latter has reportedly told the ex-Spurs attacker, he will be frozen out unless he leaves this summer.
Real Madrid love an attacking full-back and have history and class in that position, with both Roberto Carlos and Marcelo occupying that role to great success over the years. Mendy is a tireless operator down the left flank and has drawn comparisons to his namesake Benjamin at Manchester City, due to his willingness to get forward and support the attack.
Experienced agent Yvan Le Mee said of the player; “Mendy is good offensively and defensively, which is very rare. Balanced guys, who are exciting going forward and very strong at the back, are very rare. At his age, there’s no-one better.
“Apart from Andy Robertson, who won’t move from Liverpool, there’s no such talented player in that role available, especially as Lucas Hernandez has a different profile.”
While Luka Modric may have been recognised for his achievements at the World Cup, his performances did not quite match up for Real last season and he came close to leaving the Bernabeu outfit for Inter Milan last summer but he eventually opted to stay in the Spanish capital.
Should Eriksen move from Spurs, he would become the chief creator and where he operates best in an advance role able to play through balls and shoot at goal, compared to Modric, who sits deeper and intelligently dictates the tempo.
Since his Premier League debut in 2013, Eriksen has created the most chances of any player (547), most assists (60) and most goals from outside the box (22).
It is no secret Hazard is heading for Real Madrid and they will certainly be getting their money’s worth, if he continues the form he has shown for Chelsea.
Operating in his familiar wide left role, he will drift in onto his favourite right foot, but is also capable of going down the outside and checking back in.
The Belgian attempted (1,441) and complete (909) more dribbles than any other Premier League player since the start of the 2012-13 season and he has had his most productive season netting 21 times and assisting a further 17 in all competitions.
When you pay £62million for a player, the signs are that he will be a prominent member of the team and Jovic looks likely to be the leading striker for Real next season ahead of Karim Benzema, who has rarely been challenged for the striking berth since he arrived a decade ago.
There is little to choose between the two however, with Benzema scoring 30 goals in 53 matches last season, while the Frankfurt forward bagged 27 in 48.
The Serbian is a competent finisher and can score with either foot, nine came from his weaker left, while 14 were from his favoured right.
It was not just in the Bundesliga where he was lethal in front of goal, as he bagged 10 times en route to the semi-final, scoring twice against Chelsea in both legs and with better players around him expect Jovic to reach or surpass this year’s tally.
While Sergio Ramos will remain at the club, Zidane has invested for the present, but with the future in mind, knowing the veteran Spain defender can not play forever. Militao is a fine young centre-back and can also operate as a right-back. Despite being 21, he was one of the first names on the team-sheet for Porto last season, particularly impressing in the Champions League.
While he is still raw, Zidane will have been impressed with how comfortable Militao is on the ball, able to dribble and bring play forward like an accomplished midfielder, but he is also solid in defence, showing excellent positional awareness for someone so young.
Here at talkSPORT.com we have looked at how Real could line-up with their new signings..
Marcus Rashford led the line for large parts of the season but his finishing still leaves a lot to be desired, having notched up just ten goals in 33 matches this season.
So who should United target to replace Lukaku? talkSPORT.com has identified five suitable targets…

According to the Daily Express, United have identified Pepe as a potential replacement for Lukaku.
The 23-year-old winger, who has emerged as one of Ligue 1’s brightest stars, has also caught the attention of Arsenal and Liverpool.
The Ivorian netted 22 times and provided 11 assists in a superb campaign and finished as the league’s second top scorer.
Club president Gerard Lopez recently told Telefoot: “Four or five players will be leaving this summer.
“He enters a price range that can no longer be paid. There is a career choice to make for him, I think he will have the choice.”
Pepe is under contract with Lille until the summer of 2022. It is understood the club value him at £60million.
It would be a real statement of intent if Man United manager to pull off the signing of Griezmann.
The World Cup winner is undoubtedly a global star in the game and he could be the marquee signing needed to propel United back into Europe’s elite.
The Frenchman favours a move to Barcelona and would most certainly prefer a move to a club which can offer Champions League football, but the financial power of the Old Trafford club could offer him an contract offer to good to refuse.
The striker has risen to be one of the hottest properties in Europe with his fine performances in the Bundesliga.
The 21-year-old has netted 22 goals in all competitions this season and if there is any sense of urgency at United, the Red Devils hierarchy should move quick to hijack the deal as this forward is the real deal.
He is still very young and could solve United’s problems up front for many years to come.
The Europa League hasn’t failed to excite this season.
For the first time since the UEFA Cup became the Europa League in the 2009/10 season, the final will be contested by two clubs from England, with Arsenal and Chelsea set to battle it out in Baku to earn some silverware after a gruelling season – live on talkSPORT.
There is a lot more at stake for the Gunners, however, as a win would ensure they play in next season’s Champions League.
Chelsea have already secured their destiny following their third place finish in the Premier League.
Chelsea defender ANDREAS CHRISTENSEN has had a very solid campaign in the Europa League.
The Dane has played nearly every minute of the Blues’ run to the final and has helped Chelsea keep seven clean sheets, the most in the competition.
Eintracht Frankfurt centre-back MARTIN HINTEREGGER has been mightily impressive for the German side this campaign, particularly against Chelsea in the semi.
He put in a series of good blocks and last ditch challenges to keep the Blues at bay and he has been doing this all campaign for his side.
Valencia defender EZEQUIEL GARAY has been imperious in defence for his side this tournament.
Although his club began the season in the Champions League he has been crucial for them on their run to the semi-finals, although he was ultimately unable to prevent Arsenal’s lethal strike force in the last round.
Frankfurt’s SEBASTIAN RODE worked tirelessly to keep Chelsea at bay in the last four and he was desperately unlucky his efforts were not rewarded.
He has been solid as rock throughout the campaign for his club in both attack and defence and looks a real dime in the midfield.
Chelsea playmaker RUBEN LOFTUS-CHEEK will be heartbroken he is not playing in the final following the Achilles tendon injury he picked up in a post-season friendly in Boston.
The Englishman has arguably been the Blues’ best performer in the Europa League this term, chipping in with four crucial goals to send his side to the final.
Valencia midfielder DANIEL PAREJO has also been the main orchestrator in the Valencia line-up, puling the strings at the heart of the midfield to keep play ticking over for his side.
There has been so many outstanding forwards in the Europa League that is it is extremely difficult to fit them all in.
Sevilla forward WISSAM BEN YEDDER has been on stellar form in Europe, notching up eight goals throughout the campaign to help his side to the quarter-finals.
Arsenal striker PIERRE-EMERICK AUBAMEYANG – also on eight goals – has often been played on the left throughout the tournament and he was outstanding in their last match against Valencia, almost single-handedly sending the Gunners to Baku with a hat-trick.
LUKA JOVIC has been incredible for Eintracht Frankfurt this term and he looks to be off to Real Madrid for his stellar displays.
Along with OLIVIER GIROUD, who completes the line-up, they are the top scoring players in the Europa League this season with 10 goals.
The Frenchman has been a handful for opposition defences in Europe throughout the campaign, scoring some stunning goals in the process.
Have a look at the line-up in full below…
The Europa League final between Chelsea and Arsenal will be live on talkSPORT at 20:00 on 29 May
Real Madrid’s season came to a stuttering end after a 2-0 at home to Real Betis on Sunday night.
Defeat at the Bernabeu means Los Blancos finished a whopping 19 points behind rivals Barcelona in what has been a miserable campaign.
Back in March, Real were also unceremoniously dumped out of the Champions League by a rampant Ajax side.
Santiago Solari was brought in to steady the ship after Julen Lopetegui’s sacking, but the Argentine also received his P45 from Señor Florentino Perez.
The Real Madrid president turned to Zinedine Zidane to steady the ship and begin a rebuilding job which would help restore Real to the top of world football.
The Frenchman has reportedly demanded reassurances from Perez about his transfer budget for the summer window, with the Spanish giants keen to usher in a new era of ‘Galacticos’ to reassert their dominance.

Meanwhile, back in March, rumours suggesting Porto defender Eder Militao was closing in on a summer move were confirmed, which means he could replace Sergio Ramos in the long-term.
Of course, players will need to be sold in order to fund such a drastic overhaul, with as many as 17 players reportedly under threat.
So how on earth could all these superstars fit onto one pitch next season?
Scroll down to see talkSPORT’s potential starting XI for Real Madrid next season.
Even in his short managerial career, Zidane has tended to favour an attacking 4-3-3 formation at Real Madrid with a deep-lying midfielder acting as a pivot.
Having joined in 2013, Casemiro seemed destined to stay in the reserves under Rafael Benitez. But when the Spaniard was sacked, the Brazilian became the linchpin for Los Merengues.
His discipline has allowed Zidane’s teams to effectively leave three at the back as the full-backs were granted the license to bomb forward at will to supplement the attacks with overlapping runs.
For years, Marcelo and Carvajal terrified opposition full-backs with their rampaging runs on the outside as Madrid looked to suffocate their opponents and this looks set to continue for the time being as the overhaul focusses ahead of them
Of course, the full-backs are given room to operate when supplementing inverted wingers – roles previously held by Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale.
But Ronaldo’s move to Juventus and Bale’s decline in the Spanish capital have deeply hindered Zidane in his second stint as can be seen by their starting XI from the defeat to Betis on Sunday.
Despite featuring plenty of skill and technical ability, only Vinicius Junior possesses the sort of devastating pace which strikes fear into defenders.
The swashbuckling and scathing style which garnered so much success for Zidane during his first two-and-a-half year stint was based on explosive counter-attacking and clinical finishing – traits which are drastically missing from the current crop.
But the signing of Eden Hazard and the potential move for Mohamed Salah would rectify this in a big way. Added to that a genuine goal poacher in Luka Jovic and Real would have enough firepower to hurt any team in the world.
Both wingers play on the opposite flank and have the attacking nous to cut inside or play on the shoulder and get in behind with their pace.
While it can be argued the aforementioned Madrid players do not deserve to be moved on, Perez has a tendency to make transfers purely for the sake of vanity.
For instance, the sales of Claude Makelele and Angel Di Maria were both sanctioned to fund moves for players like James Rodriguez and David Beckham – superstars who did not necessarily add much more than their commercial value.
Zidane knows this better than most. When Makelele was sold for Beckham in 2003, his France teammate famously remarked ‘Why put another layer of gold paint on the Bentley when you are losing the entire engine?’.
In order to avoid the mistakes of previous superstar-littered Real Madrid teams, the World Cup winner must ingratiate a specific playing style to give his team an identity and a common goal.
Failure to do so could leave Madrid susceptible to be overrun by a cacophony of egocentric superstars desperate for their chance to steal the spotlight.
Real Madrid have agreed a £52.4m deal to sign Eintracht Frankurt striker Luka Jovic, according to reports.
The Serbian forward, 21, has been on stunning form this season, netting 17 goals in 31 matches in the Bundesliga.
And according to Sky Germany, Los Blancos have now agreed a five-year contract for the marksman in a deal worth €60m (£52.4m).
He will be Real’s third capture of the transfer window after they managed to secure the services of defender Eder Militao from Porto and Santos forward Rodrygo Goes, who was signed last year.
The news will come as a blow to Chelsea, who have also been strongly linked with Jovic in recent weeks.
Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane has been promised a huge overhaul of his current squad, who have had a nightmare campaign this term and sit 18 points behind bitter rivals Barcelona in the LaLiga standings.

Other big names such as Paul Pogba and Eden Hazard have also been consistently linked with a move to the Spanish capital.
Reports earlier this week claimed an agreement has already been reached between the Bernabeu club and the Blues over Hazard’s transfer, with an £87million (€100m) fee to be paid for his services.
The deal is said to have been reached ‘several weeks ago’, with Real’s announcement of Hazard’s capture to be made after the Europa League final at the end of the month.
Even since the title was secured on Sunday, City have been linked with a host of top performing stars from across Europe, and if they land just two of them their already superior squad to the rest of the league will only grow better and better.
Liverpool were beaten by just one point this campaign, but Jurgen Klopp will surely have to pull off a miracle if they spend big again this summer.
But who are the targets and how could they line-up if they are bought next season? talkSPORT.com has identified where they could slot in.

When does the transfer window open and shut? Premier League and European dates
According to the Mail, Guardiola is a ‘huge fan’ of Harry Maguire and he could be willing to lure him to the Etihad in the summer.
There have also been multiple reports throughout the season of interest from City in Leicester and England full-back Ben Chillwell.
The 22-year-old has been one of the Foxes’ most consistent performers, missing just one Premier League game this season.
His form since breaking through at the King Power Stadium has also earned him five England caps and The Telegraph report Chilwell is being eyed by Guardiola, who has been frustrated by first-choice left-back Benjamin Mendy’s injury problems.
The Frenchman has made just 16 Premier League appearances since his £52million move from Monaco in 2017.
Chilwell is contracted to Leciester until 2024, which means it is likely City will have to pay the Midlands club more than Liverpool’s £75million fee for Virgil van Dijk.
The Mail also report that Guardiola has pinpointed Atletico Madrid midfielder Rodri as the man who can replace Fernandinho, 34, in the middle of the park.
The Brazilian is by no means labouring in his performances but recent injuries of late suggest his age is catching up with him.
Rodri, 22, has impressed with some assured displays for Atletico this season and City sporting director Txiki Begiristain made a personal check with the LaLiga of his availability in the summer.
Luka Jovic has caught the eye of a number of top European clubs after his prolific season with Eintracht Frankfurt in the Bundesliga.
The forward, 21, has netted 17 goals in 31 matches, and recently impressed against Chelsea in the Europa League with two in two against the Blues.
Unsurprisingly, Real Madrid are frontrunners for his signature, but Man City have also shown interest and have reportedly sent scouts to watch the striker in action.
Frankfurt are willing to cash in on the youngster and could be willing to part ways if a bid in the region of £50m is tabled.
The transfer window has not even opened yet but Joao Felix has already dominated much of the talk in the rumour mill.
He has been linked with several huge clubs after making waves in the Primeira Liga this season, netting 14 goals and adding seven assists in 23 matches.
