AS Roma have been quite active in the market, but on the opening of the transfer window they have lost one of their regular starters from last season after Leandro Paredes decided to join Zenit for a €23 millon fee.
However, Roma also secured the services of a new player after they signed Lorenzo Pellegrini from Sassuolo on a reported €10 millon fee.
Alessio Cerci‘s nightmare spell at Atletico Madrid has come to an end, as Los Colchoneros have decided to terminate the winger’s contract, who is now a free agent.
Jeremy Mathieu is reportedly on his way out of FC Barcelona, and the defender will start training with Sporting Lisbon ahead of his move to the Portuguese outfit that should be completed in the coming days.
Mathieu is not the only player who left FC Barcelona in the last few hours, though, as Los Blaugranas have also sold winger Cristian Tello, who spent last season on loan at Fiorentina, to Betis for a €4 million fee.
Saul was one of Spain’s U21 most important players, and there has been a lot of talk of him moving to either Barcelona or Manchester United. Atletico Madrid decided to stop any potential transfer move, and rewarded the midfielder with a nine-year contract extension until 2026.
Cedric Bakambu has been linked with a potential move to West Ham United, but Villarreal rejected a propopsed €25 million move for the striker.
Benfica have secured the services of Cristian Arango, a 22-year-old forward who played for Millionarios in the Colombian Primera Division.
PSG are making an effort to extend their most important players, and have announced a deal to extend Marquinhos‘ contract until 2020.
Juventus continue to analyse ways to improve their midfield, and they would be keen to pay Dani Ceballos‘ release clause from Betis after the playmaker excelled with Spain in the European U21 Championship.
