In this article we will talk about the most high-profile transfers of this summer, as well as analyze these transitions. Most of the transfers this season are under the radar, and information about them comes in at the last minute. You can make money on this by betting at Crickex. Now let’s break down the top five most expensive purchases in more detail.

Aurélien Tchouameni, midfielder – 80 + 20 million euros. Monaco → Real Madrid.

This acquisition by Real Madrid is the record for the summer so far, and there is every possibility of holding on to the top spot before the transfer window closes. Real had been eyeing Tchouameni for 2 years and decided to buy. The midfielder performs well in his position, sees the field well, has a good long-range shot and is not bad defensively. Given that Real Madrid have the young and talented Kamawinga, the purchase of Tchouameni can be seen as an investment for the long term future.

Darwin Nunez, forward – €75+25 million. Benfica → Liverpool.

Liverpool seriously decided to rejuvenate their attacking line, and the team was in dire need of a striker with good execution. Darwin Nunez can be called one: last season at Benfica the Uruguayan was top scorer in the Portuguese league with 26 goals in 28 games. Jurgen Klopp was flattering about the forward a year ago, Núñez scored for the Reds in the last Champions League campaign and now he has joined their squad, becoming the second most expensive transfer in the world at the moment. Nunez is also the second most expensive player in Liverpool history, behind only Virgil Van Dijk.

Erling Haaland, striker – 75 million euros. Borussia Dortmund → Manchester City.

Although Haaland’s transfer is the third on the current list, it is definitely the loudest this summer. Erling is a young, but already experienced and still talented striker with a killer instinct. The Norwegian is very good at realization, can create his own scoring chances, is sharp and fast, as well as tall and able to fight in aerial battles not only in attack but also in defense.

However, regarding this transfer, there are some doubts. Haaland does not quite fit into Manchester City’s game model. There have been rumors that Guardiola is not too interested in buying this forward. But the setback in the Champions League has clearly set the City owners up for such a high-profile purchase, and it is quite possible that changes to Guardiola’s scheme will be appropriate and productive next season.

Nuno Mendes, defender – 40 million euros. Sporting → PSG.

An extremely talented fullback who could eventually become a symbol of PSG and secure the position for years to come. He already has experience of playing for the Parisian team and the Parisians bought his transfer at the end of the 2021/2022 season. The young talent from Portugal is excellent at rebounding, very good at creating, and his young age and anthropometric data allow him to have a speed advantage over most of his opponents. Perhaps the Parisians have closed the problematic position on the left side of the defense for a long time.

Diego Carlos, defender – 31+9 million euros. Sevilla → Aston Villa.

The Brazilian defender could well afford to move to a much more solid club – there were offers from Manchester City, Arsenal, but in the end Diego chose Aston Villa. Birmingham had a good last season, have an excellent squad that can fight for a place in the European competitions, and the acquisition of the strategic defender could seriously change the situation in the team. Somewhat reminiscent of the purchase of Virgil Van Dijk by Liverpool. He is very tenacious, assertive, physically strong, good heading and interception skills. He can help in the attack, scores from set-pieces. In short, a powerful investment for Aston Villa, which cost the club not a lot by the standards of today’s market.
