What's happened during the World Cup? - Transfer Round Up

Club football has still been going on during the World Cup

The World Cup has taken a lot of attention this summer. It has been one of the most entertaining tournaments in years. With England going deep into the rounds not many football fans have taken noticed of the club football scene. However, a lot of business has been done in the time the World Cup has been going on.

The transfer window closes even earlier this season and clubs can't afford to hang around. We've taken a look at the best bits of business done so far this transfer window. Quite a few of these have sneaked under the radar but with the World Cup now almost over, attention turns back to club football and rivalries start again.

Transfer Round Up

Leon Goretzka - Schalke ➡ Bayern Munich - Free

The young German midfielder had a great season with Schalke and looks to have a very bright future. In true Bayern Munich fashion they've managed to convince Goretzka to come to the club after letting his contract run down.

Paulinho - Barcelona ➡ GZ Evergrande - On loan with option to buy

Paulinho's move to Barcelona was one of the surprises of last summers transfer window. However, after a great season with the Spanish club it comes as even more of a surprise to see him move back to China this summer. This is a transfer that had to happen as Barcelona look to bring in other South American talents.

Paulinho Barcelona

Pepe Reina - Napoli ➡ AC Milan - Free

The experienced goalkeeper joins the AC Milan project and will likely serve as cover behind Gianluigi Donnarumma.

Mattia Perin - Genoa ➡ Juventus - £13m

With long standing goalkeeper, Gianluigi Buffon moving on, Juventus needed to add to their goalkeeping ranks. It is expected that Wojciech Szczęsny will get the No.1 shirt but up and coming Mattia Perrin will push him hard and provide good competition.

Thomas Lemar - Monaco ➡ Atletico Madrid - £58m

One of the transfers of the season so far. However, one not many will be aware of. Atletico Madrid have done some great business, keeping hold of some of their key players and adding the likes of Thomas Lemar. The left sided player has been linked with some top clubs all around Europe and came very close to joining Liverpool last January. Now on his way to Madrid to help Atletico's bid to upset the big two in Spain.

Thomas Lemar

Justin Kluivert - Ajax ➡ Roma - £15.9m

Like father like son. Justin Kluivert follows in his fathers footsteps by making the move to Italy from Ajax. He's a different player to his father, a quick and tricky winger. However, still has a lot of potential which he'll be looking to fulfil in Rome.

Javier Pastore - PSG ➡ Roma - £17.5m

The Italian sides are getting their business done early and Roma have made another strong signing bringing in PSG's Javier Pastore.

Stefan de Vrij - Lazio ➡ Inter - Free

Inter Milan continue their rebuild with another great signing. Stefan de Vrij is highly rated and managing to get him on a free is a great bit of business from Inter. The commanding centre back has plenty of experiance in the Serie A and will slot in well.

Stefan de vrij

Joao Cancelo - Valencia ➡ Juventus - 36.4m

The young full back is highly rated and was close to a move to Wolves. It's expected that he was a big part in convincing Cristiano Ronaldo to move to the Italian giants. With Stephan Lichtsteiner moving to Arsenal Cancelo will move straight into the right back position for Juventus.

Amin Younes - Ajax ➡ Napoli - Free

This move has been in the pipeline for a while now which left Amin Younes banished to the Ajax reserves. The German wingers has a lot of potential and will fit in nicely to Napoli's style of play.

Gianluigi Buffon - Juventus ➡ PSG - Free

One of the greatest goalkeepers of all time leaves the Old Lady for Paris. With a number of talented goalkeepers already at the club it will be interesting to see how much game time Buffon gets.

Buffon

Alen Halilovic - Hamburg ➡ AC Milan - Free

A former wonderkid puts himself back on the radar. Halilovic graduated from the Dinamo Zagreb academy and was tipped for great things. He is yet to impress but now on the move to AC Milan he'll be hoping to kick start his career.

Arthur - Gremio ➡ Barcelona - 34.5m

Brazil continue to produce young talents and Barcelona have snapped up the lastest one. Arthur is yet to make an appearance for the national team but is highly regarded. He will replace Paulinho in the squad.

Radja Nainggolan - Roma ➡ Inter - £21m

Nainggolan is now 30 years old but still looks a good signing for Inter at £21m. People could argue that his career is in decline, being left out of the Belgium World Cup squad and now being allowed to leave by Roma. He has plenty of experience and will definitely add to Inter's midfield.

Radja Nainggolan

Andriy Yarmolenko - Dortmund ➡ West Ham - Undisclosed fee

West Ham have made some good signings since Manuel Pellegrini came to the club and Yarmolenko is the lasted one. The Ukrainian is a powerful winger known for cutting inside and scoring from distance.

Clement Lenglet - Sevilla ➡ Barcelona - £32m

Barcelona have snapped up one of the lasted French talents. Lenglet has impressed for Sevilla last season and will give Pique and Umtiti good cover at centre back.

Riyad Mahrez - Leicester ➡ Man City - £60m

The Algerian finally gets his move. After handing in two transfer requests in the last two transfer windows, Leicester have finally let him leave and for a good price. Man City have further strengthen their already talented squad with the tricky winger.

Riyad Mahrez

Kwadwo Asamoah - Juventus ➡ Inter - Free

Inter continue to add experiance to the squad. Kwadwo Asamoah has won six titles with Juventus and they'll be sad to see the versatile player leave. He'll get plenty more game time with Inter and add some more quality to the squad wherever he ends up playing.

Lucas Torreira - Sampdoria ➡ Arsenal - £26m

This could be one of the signings of the season. Arsenal have been in desperate need for a hard tackling defensive midfielder and Torreira fits the mould perfectly. He comes to the Premier League after a great season with Sampdoria and a good World Cup with Uruguay.

Jean Michael Seri - Nice ➡ Fulham - Undisclosed fee

One of the surprises so far this summer window. It is believed that Seri was targeted by some of the top clubs all-around Europe, making this look like a very good bit of business by newly promoted Fulham.

Ronaldo Real Madrid

Cristiano Ronaldo - Real Madrid ➡ Juventus - £99.2m

What is easily the biggest move in the window. Ronaldo has ended his 9 years stint with Real Madrid and moves to the Italian giants to conquer another country. If he can take Juventus to that elusive Champions League he'll only strengthen his grasp as the greatest player of all time.
