We had another interesting summer transfer window with new records and surprises. Even though the English Premier League is the richest football league in the world, there’s only one signing in the top 10 most expensive transfers this summer.
10. Gonzalo Higuain
At the beginning of this summer it seemed like Argentine striker will be new record signing for Arsenal, but they failed to pay the fee. Later on Napoli secured Higuain in a deal worth of € 37 million.
9. Mario Götze
Even before the end of the previous season everbody knew about Mario Götze transfer. Bayern paid massive €37 million for talented German youngster to thier rivals Borussia Dortmund.
The Brazilian midfielder is Mourinho’s snap before Tottenham as Spurs did medical, but Chelsea signed him. Mourinho must have good reasons to sign him for €38 million or not?
Fernandinho is good catch for Manchester City from Shakhtar Donetsk in a deal worth of €40 million.
6. James Rodriguez
The Colombian winger has signed a contract with AS Monaco worth of €45 million. Arraving from Porto, but not really impressing so far.
5. Mesut Özil
Özil’s departure from Real Madrid on deadline day surprised quite a few fans. Arsene Wenger finally splashed €50 million on the table and brought world class playmaker, whether it will be enough for trophies?
Neymar has announced his move to Barcelona earlier this summer and prevented any speculation. Barcelona bought Neymar for €57 million to link him up with one of the best forwards at the moment – one and only Lionel Messi.
The Colombian striker surprised us all with move from Atletico Madrid to AS Monaco for massive €60 million. Falcao is already scoring goals and climbing the table in Ligue 1.
2. Edinson Cavani
Another big surprise this summer is Cavani’s move from Napoli to PSG in a deal worth of €64.5 million. Cavani and Zlatan will create one of the most dangerous offensive in modern football.
1. Gareth Bale
We expected a record breaking deal worth of €91 million between Tottenham and Real Madrid. Bale will be down in history as the most expensive purchase in the history of Real Madrid. Now he has a lot of time to demonstrate whether it was worth of it.
