The only thing we are really confident with this list is that it definitely will not look the same when the transfer window close in a month. Here is our list of the 10 best transfers so far.
1. Alexis Sanchez
Udinese – Barcelona
Udinese has been negotiating so hard that the Barca fans started to despair. But then finally it was official Alexis Sanchez will be a Barca player next year.
2. André Villas-Boas
Jose Mourinho was Chelsea’s most successful coach in the club’s history. How do you do to repeat the success? Well, you recruit “the new Mourinho”. Said and done. In June the 33-year-old-André Villas-Boas signed a three year contract.
3. Fabio Coentrao
Benfica – Real Madrid
Has this year’s biggest price tag so far. The question is if he will be worth it?
4. Ashley Young
Aston Villa – Man. United
Sir Alex Ferguson has been very active in the beginning of the current transfer window. Ashley Young has been a favorite player for a long time and the Scot brought the big bucks to get Young.
5. Andrea Pirlo
2001 Andrea Pirlo joined Milan from Inter. Ten years later, Pirlo is involved in yet another controversial transfer. This makes him the fourth player in history to represent Italy’s three major clubs.
6. Nuri Sahin
Borussia Dormund – Real Madrid
22-year-old was one of the great heroes of the young Dortmund who took home the Bundesliga. But unlike his teammates he wanted to move when Real Madrid called.
7. Gaël Clichy
Arsenal – Manchester City
Arsenal has been surrounded by rumors surrounding several of their stars. The first to go this summer was Gaël Clichy.
8. Manuel Neuer
Schalke 04-Bayern Munich
Rumored for a long time to go to Manchester United but the German was home bound and rather wanted to tend the goal in Bavaria.
9. Jordan Henderson
Kenny Dalglishs first transfer this summer was the English under 21 player Jordan Henderson..
With 15 goals and 10 assists in Lille Gervinho brought his Lille to the League victory. Contract extends over 5 years.
