Non-European league signings in 2023

  • Lionel Messi – Inter Miami

In a surprising move that sent shockwaves through the football world, former Barcelona icon Lionel Messi has bid farewell to Paris Saint Germain and joined Inter Miami. This unexpected transfer marks Messi’s departure from European football as he embarks on a new chapter in America. Despite securing consecutive Ligue 1 titles during his time at PSG, the Argentine superstar couldn’t guide the club to Champions League success as anticipated. Over the course of his two-year stint in Paris, the seven-time Ballon d’Or winner netted 32 goals in 75 appearances.

  • Karim Benzema – Al Ittihad

After an impressive fourteen-year tenure with Real Madrid, French forward Karim Benzema has parted ways with the club to join Saudi Arabia Pro League side Al Ittihad. Declining to sign a one-year extension with Madrid, the Ballon d’Or recipient has inked a lucrative deal with Al Ittihad, with specific details undisclosed. As a five-time Champions League winner, Benzema leaves a remarkable legacy at Real Madrid, where he became the club’s second all-time leading goalscorer with an impressive tally of 354 goals in 648 appearances.

  • N’golo Kante – Al Ittihad

In a significant transfer move, N’golo Kante, a decorated player with multiple Premier League titles, a Champions League trophy, and a World Cup victory, has bid farewell to Chelsea FC and joined Saudi Arabia Pro League team Al Ittihad as a free agent. Kante will reunite with his compatriot Karim Benzema at Al Ittihad, forming an exciting partnership. The decision to leave Europe and play in Saudi Arabia stems not only from Kante’s desire to seek new challenges but also from his deep religious beliefs, which make him feel at home in the country. Despite battling injuries recently, Kante proved to be a vital presence for Chelsea, and his departure leaves a significant void that will be difficult to fill for the Blues.

English Premier League news

  • Liverpool Secures Alexis Mac Allister’s Signature

In a bid to address their midfield crisis from the previous Premier League season, Liverpool has made strengthening their midfield a top priority for this summer transfer window. The club has made an impressive start to their revamp by activating the release clause of World Cup winner Alexis Mac Allister from Brighton, securing his services for a mere £35m. Considering the value for money, Liverpool has pulled off a bargain with the Mac Allister signing, and fans can expect more arrivals as the club strives to regain a spot in the top four and potentially challenge for the EPL title in the upcoming season.

  • Aston Villa Completes the Signing of Youri Tielemans

Relegated teams from the Premier League have become a sought-after talent pool for clubs across the football landscape, given the limited number of players willing to compete in the Championship. Aston Villa has capitalized on this trend by acquiring the services of Youri Tielemans, a key midfielder from Leicester City, who became available on a free transfer. Tielemans, whose contract with Leicester City expired without renewal, marks Villa’s first addition of the summer transfer window.

  • Chelsea want to sign Christopher Nkuku

Under the new ownership, Chelsea FC has made a shrewd move by acquiring the talents of French prodigy Christopher Nkuku. The club managed to secure Nkuku’s signature for a mere £52 million, which is widely regarded as a bargain considering the remarkable season the former Leipzig forward had. Despite facing injury setbacks and not even being the primary goal scorer for Leipzig, Nkuku emerged as the Bundesliga’s top scorer. Now, he embarks on a new chapter at Stamford Bridge, eager to contribute to Chelsea’s success.

  • Brighton and Hove Albion Completes the Signing of João Pedro

João Pedro, a skillful Brazilian forward, has made the switch from Watford to Brighton, commanding a club-record fee of £30 million. He has signed a lucrative five-year contract, set to expire in June 2028. In preparation for the upcoming 2023-24 Premier League season, manager Roberto De Zerbi is keen on bolstering his squad, and Pedro is just the first of many anticipated additions. Demonstrating his goal-scoring prowess, Pedro netted 11 times in 35 Championship matches this season. This acquisition will significantly enhance Brighton’s squad depth as they gear up to compete in the Europa League in the following campaign.

La Liga latest transfer news

  • Real Madrid Secures Jude Bellingham’s Services

Once again, Real Madrid has showcased their ability to attract top-tier talents, this time snatching Jude Bellingham from German club Borussia Dortmund.

Despite competition from Manchester City and Liverpool, Madrid emerged triumphant in the transfer battle, acquiring the signature of the English prodigy for a fee of 103 million euros.

  • Joao Felix Makes a Return to Atletico de Madrid

The Portuguese forward, who had been on loan at Chelsea FC, is set to rejoin his parent club, Atletico de Madrid, following an unsuccessful loan spell at the London-based club. Despite receiving regular game time, Joao Felix failed to leave a lasting impression on the Blues’ hierarchy due to his inconsistent performances. With just four goals in sixteen Premier League appearances for Chelsea, Felix will now return to Atletico de Madrid to resume his career.

Known for his energetic style in central midfield, Laimer can also provide cover as a right back if required.

  • Borussia Dortmund Completes the Signing of Ramy Bensebaini

Algerian left-back Ramy Bensebaini has made a move to Borussia Dortmund on a free transfer, following the expiration of his contract with league rivals Borussia Moenchengladbach over the summer. Bensebaini, who scored 25 goals and provided eight assists in 113 appearances for his former team, serves as a like-for-like replacement for Raphael Guerreiro. Guerreiro’s contract with Dortmund also concluded after the season, making Bensebaini a suitable replacement in the starting lineup.

His impressive contributions include 41 goals and 34 assists.

  • Brahim Diaz Returns to Real Madrid as Loan Spell at AC Milan Ends

After three successful seasons on loan at AC Milan, Spanish giants Real Madrid have decided to recall Brahim Diaz.
