Pastures new: Van der Vaart.

The rush is on… With just days left before the start of many leagues across Europe, clubs are scrambling for last minute additions to their squads in a bid to make a fast start to the campaign.

Sport360 brings you latest news on some of the latest big transfers.

Rafael Van der Vaart, Real Betis to Midtjylland, free (Done Deal)

The Danes have pulled off a coup by luring ex-Dutch international Van der Vaart. The 33-year-old, who won 109 caps for his country, arrives after his spell at La Liga outfit Real Betis came to an end.

Van der Vaart had been linked with Jaap Stam’s Reading.

Mauricio Isla, Juventus to Cagliari, €4.5 million (Done Deal)

Great things were expected of the Chile wing-back when he joined Juve, but a frustrating spell filled with loans is now at an end.

The 28-year-old will be expected to add class and experience to Cagliari as they battle against Serie A relegation.

Simone Zaza, Juventus to Wolfsburg, €25 million (Fee Agreed)

The record-breaking arrival of striker Gonzalo Higuain has pushed Zaza towards the exit door at Juve. Sky Sport Italia report he will head to the Bundesliga, where the Wolves are rebuilding.

In Germany, he’ll be expected to improve on last term’s eight-goal haul.

Adnan Januzaj, Manchester United to Sunderland, loan (Reported)

The Manchester Evening News reports that a reunion awaits the errant Belgium playmaker and David Moyes.

The Stadium of Light should also prove inspiring for a talent who has lost his way, an incredible two-goal haul on debut under Moyes coming there.

Gabriel Barbosa, Santos to Leicester City, €27.5 million (Reported)

The Premier League champions have entered the fierce battle for the emerging Brazil forward, according to the Guardian.

Juventus, Internazionale and Barcelona have all proved unable to seal a deal for the 19-year-old who has two goals in four caps.
