The summer transfer window is now in full force, with a host of clubs around the world completing deals to sign players. Deals that have been finalized in June and July can be seen here, courtesy of BBC Sport.
In the Premier League, Liverpool have been very active in the market with the signings of Southampton’s Rickie Lambert and Adam Lallana. Manchester United have brought in two expensive arrivals, with Southampton left-back Luke Shaw and Athletic Bilbao midfielder Ander Herrera, while Chelsea have signed Diego Costa from Atletico Madrid and Cesc Fabregas from Barcelona.
But new deals don’t always go as both parties would have hoped. Sometimes the change in scenery can lead to the arrivals greatly underperforming or crashing under the weight of expectation.
So what deals have been done in Europe this summer that will see the players fail at their new club?
