Despite FIFA's Financial Fair Play rules that are currently in effect, big names are going to moving during the summer in world football.

It's only March but transfer rumors are starting to heat up.

The summer is always a bit of confounding time for supporters. There is the excitement at the possibility of new players arriving. On the other hand, you worry that your club will lose some of its best players.

If you're fortunate enough to support one of Europe's elite clubs, it's usually a case of the latter.

One or two summer moves can represent significant intent. Just look at Real Madrid.

They had struggled in the Champions League, so they went out and broke the world record transfer fee twice, first bringing in Kaka for €60+ million and then Cristiano Ronaldo for £80 million.

World football fans will probably never see a summer like that again, but there will still plenty of drama in the coming months.

Here are 11 summer moves that will significantly affect the competition in Europe.
