10. Robert Lewandowski, from Borussia Dortmund to Bayern Munich for Free


Robert Lewandowski’s move to Bayern Munich has gone under the radar due to the amount of big money transfers in this summer window, however Robert Lewandowski has proved to be one of the best strikers in Europe in the past two seasons and will boost Bayern Munich’s chances of claiming back their Champions League title from Real Madrid next season. Bayern Munich have really got a bargain having not paid a penny on the transfer fee for this attacking veteran. All Fifa 15 players should be aware of the power of Bayern Munich with the addition of this reliable goalscorer. Yes, us at Clever Bets make jokes too.


9. Mario Mandzukic, from Bayern Munich to Atletico Madrid for near £20 million


Atletico Madrid have completed the signing of Mario Mandzukic from Bayern Munich. The Croatian striker has signed a four-year contract with the Spanish champions and is a direct replacement for Chelsea signing Diego Costa. Mario Mandzukic is a great hitman with an eye for goal. He scored 26 goals in 46 appearances for Bayern Munich in his last season (2013/2014) for the Bundesliga giants. He will be a hit in La Liga, however we at Clever Bets reckon he will struggle to replicate what Diego Costa managed to do last season.


8. Adam Lallana, from Southampton to Liverpool for £25 million

Adam Lallana has secured his move to one of the biggest teams in England after having a fantastic season at Southampton. His quick feet, cultured style and vision will definitely improve Liverpool’s attacking options as they re-enter the Champions League. Lallana will face competition from the likes of Raheem Sterling, Phillip Coutinho and Lazar Markovic, who they are also on the verge of signing. Liverpool look strong for next season.

As Manchester United looked to replace the aging Patrice Evra, Luke Shaw became the number one candidate. They finally secured their man to a four year contract on the 27th June 2014. Luke Shaw is known for his tremendous acceleration, impressive crossing and eye for a pass. He will be a brilliant asset to the Manchester United back line, however his defensive attributes are seemingly unproven at the highest level.

6. Ander Herrera, from Athletic Bilbao to Manchester United  for £29 million

Finally Manchester United have signed a potentially world-class midfielder in Ander Herrera. Tipped by Sky Sports Spanish football expert Guillem Balague to become ‘one of the best midfielders in the world’ Ander Herrera’s composure, skilled passing and vision will certainly assist Manchester United as they look for players that keep hold of the ball well. As  a top playmaker, the Spanish youngster will look to provide good service to the United attackers, as well as making sure the English side improve their retention of the ball. He is definitely one to look out for in the future!
