Major European summer transfers

Steve Shoup

The summer transfer window is now coming to the latter stages across Europe as clubs look to bolster their squads. There has already been a number of marquee signings that have led to punters using the best promo codes in order to support the sides for success. So which are these players and can they make an instant impact? Here we cover the top three transfers from the current window.

 

Eden Hazard – Real Madrid

 

The biggest transfer of the summer window has to be Eden Hazard moving to Real Madrid from Chelsea. The 28 year old winger has firmly established himself into one of the top players in world football and he again proved this last season at Chelsea, as he led them to a Europa league title last season. This saw him pick up the man of the match award in the final. Hazard also played a major role for Belgium in helping them to a third placed finished at the recent World Cup in Russia. Can he now do the same for Real Madrid as they look to stop the recent decline?

 


 

Antoine Griezmann – Barcelona

 

Spanish champions Barcelona have been busy in the transfer window and this includes their blockbuster signing of Antoine Griezmann from Atletico Madrid. The 28 year old is long been one of the top attacking talents in world football and he could help push Barcelona to another Champions league trophy this season. His statistics speak for themselves with 185 goals from 459 appearances. This includes 134 La Liga goals from 321 appearances and 21 Champions league goals from just 54 appearances. He also of course played a key role in helping France land their second FIFA World Cup title in Russia last year.

 

Matthijs de Ligt – Juventus

 

Juventus have picked up possibly the most exciting young talent in world football as 19 year old Matthijs de Ligt joined the club from Ajax. The centre back really burst on to the scene last season in helping Ajax reach the semi-final stages of the champions league. This included key victories over the likes of Juventus and Real Madrid. The Netherlands international was the captain for the side, which speaks volumes as to his maturity at such a young age. He is also a threat in front of goal, that saw him score twice in the Champions league last season and a further three in the Eredivisie campaign. He could be the difference in Juventus finally ending the lengthy wait for another top European trophy.
