Iturbe: Can take on players like Lionel Messi, but he needs to be more productive. Iturbe was Hellas Verona's most threatening player, but is he a big fish in a small pond?
Nainggolan: A warrior in midfield who will run himself into the ground.
Cole: Signing for Roma was a YOLO (you only live once) moment. After years of being mocked for his Ca$hley approach to football, he has shut his critics up by making a pure footballing choice.
Emanuelson: Decent squad cover.
Keita: Barcelona, Dalian, Valencia and Rome in recent seasons. Is Australia next?
Astori: Would be a world-class centre-back if he didn't have a knack for making Titus Bramble-like errors.
Ucan: Don't know enough about him.
Sanabria: What a bizarre transfer, per Barcelona's official website:
FC Barcelona and US Sassuolo have agreed to terms for the transfer of Tonny Sanabria.
The total transfer sum could reach €12 million. €4.5 million are guaranteed and the rest, up to €12 million, are dependent on the player's performance and his future value.
The process to purchase the player started with AS Roma, but the transfer was closed with US Sassuolo.
Sanabria was temporarily at Sassuolo and now he is at Roma.
|Notable Transfers Out
Dodo: He has an "obligatory buy-out clause for €7.8/£6.2 million to be activated at the player's first official game," per Football Italia.
Marquinho: He was a decent player, but did not stand out.
Jedvaj: Don't know enough about him, though Leverkusen could speed up his development.
Summary: The Sanabria deal was designed to be byzantine. But why? Iturbe is a boom-or-bust transfer.
