The best bits of transfer business conducted in Europe this summer.
20. Javi Martinez (Athletic Bilbao to Bayern Munich £32m)
Just about every member of Europe’s ‘elite’ would’ve wanted to have landed the determined Spaniard but Bayern Munich were willing to put their money where their mouth’s were and forked out a fairly hefty fee for the 24 year old.
Martinez has secured the high-profile move he deserved and may well have more hope of securing a regular spot in the Spanish national starting line-up as a result.
