This summer loudest transfers

This summer loudest transfers

The transfer summer 2018 can’t be compared with others at all. First, today for the English and Italian clubs the entrance on the market is already closed and now till the 1st of September the grandees of the EPL and Serie A can only sell the football players.

And secondly, and this is important, in comparison with summer 2017 even the most wasteful earlier top clubs are now very modest and speak more about their transfer goals rather than put them into practice. But, nevertheless, exactly in two weeks prior to final closing of the summer transfer market in all football Europe and first of all, in Spain, Germany and France, nine transfers exceeding the sum of €50 million enter theTOP-10 of the largest contracts of summer 2018.

  1. Kylian Mbappe (Monaco – Pari Saint Jermain) – 180 million;
  2. Cristiano Ronaldo (Real Madrid – Juventus) – 100;
  3. Kepa Arrizabalaga (Athletic – Chelsea) – 79.5;
  4. Thomas Lemar (Monaco – Atlético Madrid) – 70;
  5. Riyad Mahrez (Leicester – Manchester City) – 67.8;
  6. Allison Becker (Roma – Liverpool) – 62.5;
  7. Naby Keïta (Leipzig – Liverpool) – 60;
  8. Fred (Shakhtar Donetsk – Manchester United) – 59.4;
  9. Fabinho (Monaco – Liverpool) – 50.

As we see, three of nine largest transfers belong to Liverpool and six in general to the English Premier League. However, it is necessary to make an explanation. It is unlikely that now the line of the attack of the new champion of France Paris Saint-Germain can be imagined without nineteen-year-old goal-scorer Kylian Mbappe. And till recently he is one of the best players in modern European football in the trio of Mbappe – Cavani – Neymar.

The question is that the forward of Monaco has spent the whole last season on Parc des Princes as loan player. And only on the 1st of July 2018 after the transfer of the whole tranche €180 million, Kylian Mbappe officially became the player of the defending champion of France.

Slightly different situation is with transfer of the Guinean holding midfielder of Leipzig Naby Keïta to Liverpool. Even last summer this transfer has been announced to be done but then the grandee from Manchester didn’t have enough money to finish it. And therefore, by mutual agreement of the parties, the player who was reserved by Jurgen Klopp’s team has spent the whole last season in the German club and only this summer after final payment of the whole sum of money, has arrived to Anfield.

Of course, having read the presented list of the loudest transfers this summer, our readers will be surprised. This list is lacking one announced transfer of the Italian central midfielder of Napoli Jorginho to Chelsea. We will remind you that this transfer was one of indispensable terms of the contract of the former coach of Azzurri Maurizio Sarri with the London club.

Thus, the favorite and irreplaceable player of Sarri has followed the boss from Naples to London. But the matter is that €57 million announced on Jorginho ‘s transfer, by analogy with Kylian Mbappe’s transfer, will be paid later.
