The transfer drama has started even before the window opens and we can confirm three high profile transfers, all confirmed by their respective clubs.
Antonio Rudiger has completed his free transfer to Real Madrid from Chelsea after passing medical and subject to the window opening proper in the summer.The Chelsea defender has been in the news for a while with respect to his contract renewal with the Blues but all that has been laid to rest after it stormed the news scene that the German will ply his trade at the Santiago Bernabeu next season.
Manchester City have completed the signing of Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Braut Haaland on a permanent basis for an undisclosed fee following a long era of speculations.
Many would argue that Manchester City fell short of champions league glory because they were blunt upfront, it is now left to be seen how anyone would stop Manchester City next season with Haaland in their ranks upfront.

The transfer remains subject to the Club finalising terms with the player.
In the same vein, Borussia Dortmund have replaced Haaland with RB Salzburg hotshot Karim Adeyemi.
The Nigerian born German international will join the Black and Yellow in the summer when the window opens and all eyes will be on him to see how he fits into the big boots of the departing Norwegian.
