| Barcelona - Valencia - €40m|
The blockbuster deal of the summer so far. 'El Guaje' will add more firepower to an already explosive Barcelona attack. After his successful World Cup exploits with Spain, he should be the odds on favourite to win the Pichichi.
Last week: 2
| Arsenal - Bordeaux - Free|
A classic Arsenal value buy that has the potential to be an extremely saavy signing. The ex-Bordeaux striker gives the Gunners a much needed aerial presence up front and could terrorise opposing backlines this season with Robin van Persie.
Last week: 3
| Manchester City - Barcelona - €29m|
City have flexed their financial muscle this summer and the Ivorian adds more steel to an already industrial strength midfield. Will team up with brother Kolo on the defensive side for the Citizens.
Last week: 4
| Wolfsburg - Palermo - €14m|

Last week: 5
| Barcelona - Sevilla - €9.5+4m|
Joins former Sevilla team-mate Dani Alves at Barcelona and the wing-back gives coach Pep Guardiola another weapon to unleash against his opponents across a variety of positions.
Last week: 6
| Manchester City - Valencia - €30.2m|
The uber-talented winger takes his trickery to Manchester after seven years in Spain. Did not play a major role in la Furia Roja's triumph in South Africa but will hope to justify his lofty price-tag by helping City qualify for the Champions League.
Last week: 7
| Liverpool - Chelsea - Free|
The England winger will have something to prove after his substitute's role in South Africa and his unceremonious departure from Stamford Bridge, where he was deemed surplus to requirements. Chelsea's discarded trash could prove to be Liverpool's treasure.
Last week: 8
| Real Madrid - Getafe - €10m|
Makes the intra-city switch to the Merengues after helping Getafe qualify for the Europa League with a sixth-place finish. Comfortable with the ball at his feet the versatile winger could surprise many who have yet to see him play.
Last week: 9
| Manchester City - Lazio - €19.3m|
The Serb will be keen to show off his rocket of a left foot for the Citizens. His marauding runs into opposition territory will sorely be missed by Lazio fans but will be a thing to behold for the City faithful at Eastlands.
Angel DI MARIA
| Real Madrid - Benfica - €25m|
The young Argentine winger was Real Madrid's first signing this summer under the tutelage of Jose Mourinho, who made it his first priority to inject width into the team by bringing in wide players. He remains Los Blancos' most expensive purchase this summer, and expectations will be high.
Last week: 10
| Manchester United - Chivas Guadalajara -€9.7m|
'Chicharito' makes the jump from Mexico to England with the Red Devils. He did his reputation no harm at the World Cup with Mexico and has already been hailed as 'first class' by new manager Alex Ferguson. Hernandez is definitely one for the future.
Last week: 11
| Atletico Madrid - Deportivo La Coruna - €12m|
The dynamic Brazilian left-back will hope to put the horrific injury he suffered last season behind him and force his way into Mano Menezes' new look Selecao squad with an impressive campaign for Atletico. Gives los Colchoneros an attacking threat from the back as they look to improve on their disappointing ninth-place finish last term.
| Genoa - Schalke - €8m|
'Little Rafa' was one of the most courted right-backs in the world last summer with Juventus, AC Milan and Bayern Munich tracking the 24-year-old and this year, Inter and Atletico Madrid joined the race. It's a huge surprise then that the Brazilian ended up at modest but ambitious Genoa.
| Lazio - Sao Paulo - €10m|
The highly rated midfielder was expected to join one of Serie A's top dogs with Juventus, Milan and Inter fighting over his signature at one stage. But it was Lazio who were the most willing to dish out the €10m to secure his services.
Last week: 12
| Valencia - Galatasaray - €4m|
The 24-year-old leaves his homeland for a Spanish adventure and will be entrusted with the task of protecting his new side's back four. The Euro 2008 participant could end up being an inspired purchase at a bargain-basement price.
Last week: 13
| AS Roma - Flamengo - Free|
'The Emperor' will win over the hearts and minds of the Roman people if he can lead the Giallorossi to their first Serie A title since the 2000-01 campaign. He needs to exorcise the demons that haunted him at Inter to break his old club's stranglehold on the Scudetto.
Last week: 14
| Valencia - Getafe - €8m|

Last week: 15
| Liverpool - Standard Liege - Free|
The price was certainly right for the cash strapped Reds to snap up the Serbian attacker from Standard Liege. Jovanovic can win over the Anfield faithful with the type of performances that saw him win the Jupiler League's Player of the Year in 2009.
Last week: 16
| Juventus - Bari - €15.5m|
Succumbed to the Old Lady's advances and has the potential to be Italy's next great centre-back. He should slot in nicely beside Giorgio Chiellini to minimise the defensive mishaps that plagued the Bianconeri last season.
Last week: 17
| Real Madrid - Stuttgart - €13.6m|
He was one of the first names on Germany coach Joachim Loew's team sheet in the World Cup. He used the South African jamboree as his coming out party and his solid showings convinced Real Madrid to come calling for his services.
