The summer is not yet technically started but the transfers are already flying.

It is not just a matter of small amounts of money and pre-contractual agreements, as in the case of Aaron Ramsey's move to Juventus.

Eden Hazard finally got his "dream" of moving to Real Madrid

The passage of Eden Hazard to Real Madrid could have given way to the market, reaching 88 million pounds, initially.

It's just a shame for Chelsea that they can't spend the money until their transfer ban is canceled or next summer.

However, the Hazard move fixes the bar and gives the clubs the perfect barometer for other transfer fees.

It is currently the biggest deal so far, but who else does the top ten? Discover below.


10. Kerem Demirbay (Hoffenheim to Bayer Leverkusen) – £ 24 million

Long connected with a Premier League switch, both Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal are both interested, Demirbay swapped the Bundesliga clubs for this window.

An international German, Demirbay is an excellent creative midfielder and is needed to replace the outgoing Julian Brandt in Leverkusen.

9. Thorgan Danger (Borussia Monchengladbach in Borussia Dortmund) – £ 30 million

It's not just Eden that spends a lot of money on the Hazard family.

The little brother Thorgan is going all right by himself and scored ten goals and created ten for his teammates in 2018/19.

It will now become part of an already talented Dortmund head line, which includes the prodigy of England's Jadon Sancho.

8. Raul Jimenez (Benfica for Wolverhampton Wanderers) – £ 30 million

Signed on loan last summer, the wolves did not need to persuade too much to make the deal permanent.

The Mexican is a favorite of Molineux fans with fans wearing complimentary luchador masks: 13 Premier League goals and seven assists was a nice shot for a player in his maiden season in England.

If he manages to get a similar total in 2019/20, the deal will be a real bargain.

7. Benjamin Pavard (Stuttgart-Bayern Munich) £ 31.4 million

A year has passed since the French defender made the World Cup fans drool with his incredible attack against Argentina.

He hasn't been able to save his former team from relegation, but his big fee will help them rebuild the second German level.

Pavard's tactical versatility makes him an excellent acquisition for Bayern.

6. Rodrygo (Santos to Real Madrid) – £ 40 million

The Spanish giants are willing to field the best young South American talents and having already landed Vinicius Junior they will now have another left wing with enormous potential.

He has already made more than 80 appearances in all competitions at the age of 17 and has collected nine goals in 41 Serie A.

If Rodrygo will go on loan once he enters Real Madrid he still has to be decided

5. Eder Militao (FC Porto to Real Madrid) – £ 45 million

He announced it in March, but it is still technically a summer transfer, with the agreement not ratified until June.

The Brazilian defender's rise to the top was extraordinary as he entered Porto only last summer – for just £ 5 million.

He initially played in the role of right-back in Portugal, but then he distinguished himself in the defense center, where he is likely to work for Zinedine Zidane.

4. Luka Jovic (Eintracht Frankfurt on Real Madrid) – £ 58 million

One of the best young poachers in world football, the Serbian was an inspired loan signed by Benfica from the Germans two summers ago.

After 34 goals in 70 games, they took advantage of the opportunity to activate a £ 7 million clause in his contract in April.

Only two months later they sold it for almost ten times the amount – although around £ 10 million is allocated to Benfica as part of their agreement.

3. Frenkie de Jong (Ajax in Barcelona) – £ 65million

What else can we say about the talented Dutch midfielder?

De Jong showed Real Madrid, Juventus and Tottenham his Champions League class, while England also found it hard in the UEFA Nations League.

He is ready to become a key player in Ernesto Valverde's team almost immediately.

2. Lucas Hernandez (Atletico Madrid at Bayern Munich) – £ 80 million

One of the numerous departures from Diego Simeone's team this summer, Hernandez has been followed by the Bavarian behemoths for some time.

In the end, the German team bit the bullet and paid the liberation clause of the winner of the French World Cup.

1. Eden Hazard (from Chelsea to Real Madrid) – 88 million pounds

No surprise here. The Belgian always seemed able to leave Stamford Bridge this summer and this has now passed.

He will head for the Spanish capital and will try to fill Cristiano Ronaldo's boots, which left the club last year.
