With the summer transfer window now done and dusted throughout Europe, there has been no shortage of big-name incomings and outgoings.
Here, we look back at five of the best deals to have stunned the football world between May and August of this year.
The 25-year-old was linked with a move away from Old Trafford during the summer after apparent discontent with manager Jose Mourinho. However, he remained in situ when the window shut on August 9.
Now, the Frenchman wants to team up with Cristiano Ronaldo at his former club, and wouldn’t be cup-tied for the Champions League due to new UEFA rules.
His desire to return to Turin in January is the driving force behind his wish to leave England’s northwest, with agent Mino Raiola already working on a possible switch.
Aston Villa have signed Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham on a season-long loan deal.
The 20-year-old becomes the seventh new arrival at Villa Park this summer, with the Championship promotion hopefuls getting the deal done just before the 5pm deadline for transfers on Friday.
Abraham scored five times in 31 Premier League games for Swansea last season and was also called up to the England squad by Gareth Southgate.
He has Championship experience having spent the 2016-17 campaign on loan with Bristol City, scoring 26 goals for the Robins.
