5. Antonio Rudiger
Real Madrid looks like they have just formed the best defence in Europe, they added German defender Antonio Rudiger to their ranks, and now it looks difficult for anyone to score goals for them.
The defender did not renew his contract with Chelsea, as his dream was to wear the Madrid shirt. He said that Barcelona sought him out, but he did not want to hear from anyone other than Real Madrid. There were almost six months of negotiations with the English club, but no offer interested him.
At Stamford Bridge, Rudiger became one of the best defenders in the world, managed to win the UEFA Champions League, and became a benchmark in the defence of the German national team. His bonuses rose sharply and when European football knew that the player would be released, they looked for him, but without success.
Rudiger offers Real Madrid security, strength, and leadership. He is the perfect complement to a very strong backline. He will surely be the defensive partner of the Austrian David Alaba, is this the best central defence in Europe?
4. Darwin Nunez
Liverpool lost Sadio Mané and a perfect partner for Mohamed Salah, but with the Uruguayan, the Senegalese's departure may not be felt too much. Darwin Nunez has developed into a great striker, and Liverpool will be his litmus test.
With Benfica he shone brightly, indeed, he played against Liverpool at Anfield in last season's Champions League and that was when Jürgen Klopp fell in love with him. His style of play fits perfectly with the German's system, and he would complement the Egyptian and Colombian Luis Diaz in a spectacular way.
The Charrúa striker was also wanted by several teams, but only Liverpool was willing to pay the 75 million Benfica was asking for him. As a curious fact, his compatriot Luis Suárez recommended him to Barcelona when Darwin was playing for Almeria, but the club's board said he was not good enough to play at Camp Nou. His transfer would have cost 10 million euros. Bad Blaugrana vision.
3. Aurélien Tchouameni
Another Real Madrid player on the list. The reigning European champions want to repeat their European success and build a team for the future, and in the young French player, they see a midfielder who can last for many years at the highest level.
The 22-year-old had a very good performance at Monaco, which led him to the French national team, but Madrid had a personal mark on him for a long time, so they did not hesitate to pay the gigantic amount of 100 million for Tchouameni.
The press went crazy because for a young player with such a short career, no matter how talented he is, it was considered a very exaggerated amount. But the president of the Spanish club said that Aurélien was coming to be the future of the club and not an immediate solution, taking all the pressure off the young midfielder.
The Frenchman comes in to complement the Spanish midfield that has another young compatriot of his who is turning into a great player. Eduardo Camavinga. At the club, they see him as the generational replacement for Luka Modric, Toni Kroos, and Casemiro. With Tchouameni they have found a jewel for a very long time.
2. Sadio Mané
The Senegalese will not win the Ballon d'Or because only one player was in better form than him, and that was Karim Benzema. But Mane's season was spectacular. With Liverpool, he was the heart of the Liverpool attack, and they almost won a historic quadruple but fell just short in the Champions League and the Premiership. But much of the work was done by the African striker.
During the season, there was much speculation about his future, but the player never wanted to talk about a possible transfer. He maintained his seriousness at all times so as not to distract the team from the objective of winning titles.
At the end of the Champions League, where they were beaten by Real Madrid, Mane announced that it was his last game in a Liverpool shirt, ending a glorious era with the club that saw him win the Premier League after 30 years without doing so.
The player was still under contract with the English club but was already in advanced talks with Bayern Munich, who did not hesitate to pay the 80 million euro transfer fee. The Senegalese arrives to replace the place that will most likely be left by the Polish Robert Lewandowski, who might go to Barcelona.
His idea was to continue in a winning team that would maintain its level months before the World Cup and that could fight for all the titles as he did at Liverpool. The German multi-champions added one of the best strikers on the planet to their ranks. Is the Teutonic machine coming back?
This is perhaps the most talked-about signing of the summer, well, if Mbappé had come to Madrid this would be number two, but that didn't happen, so the Norwegian has the place of honour.
The Norwegian android's case lasted well over a year and there were 5 teams involved and negotiating with him and his agent. His scoring average is one of the best in history and his way of playing and competing is something any team wants.
His late agent Mino Raiola had all the teams involved on a string, but in the end, there were only two that could pay the salary the player was asking for. But the Italian's unfortunate death meant that Haaland opted to play in England with Manchester City, which was his agent's favourite option and a team he identifies with because his father, Alf Inge Haland, played for them.
Pep Guardiola's team paid Borussia Dortmund 60 million euros plus some bonuses to bring in perhaps one of the most fearsome strikers in the world. With this, the Catalan coach hopes to win, the one thing he is missing with the Cityzens. The Champions League Is Haaland the solution?
