Football fans are well aware that the Summer Transfer Window is a time frame that allows football players to interact with sports clubs. There are usually two occasions for one football season. There is no doubt that the summer transfer window, which will be held in August before the start of a new football season, will be the transfer window to attract the attention of many. The other window is the Winter Transfer window, which opens in January. Starting the 2021/22 football season, the summer transfer window ended on August 31st. That was after a series of buy-ins and sales of revolutionary players that football fans did not expect. Here is a summary of that.
The Paris team that got the most advantage at the lowest cost
Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) was the team that caught the attention of many at this summer’s transfer window. The main reason for this is that they have been able to acquire a large number of famous football players without paying any money. Among them is Lionel Messi, one of the greatest footballers in the world. Lionel Messi has been a member of the Barcelona Sports Club for over 20 years. He also played for Barcelona’s first team for more than 15 years and many believed he would never leave the team. However, the Barcelona Sports Club failed to offer Lionel Messi a new contract in the face of a severe financial crisis. As a result, they had to release Lionel Messi, and the PSG team submitted their bid for an annual salary of US $ 41 million. Only a handful of European football clubs are able to pay the salary for such a great player. So Lionel Messi will be playing for the PSG team for the next two years.
Real Madrid superstar Sergio Ramos’ joining PSG without spending any money is another player exchange that has caught the attention of many. He is also under contract with PSG for another two years. Former AC Milan goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma has signed a free five-year deal with PSG, while Liverpool midfielder Ginny Vinaldam has signed a three-year free transfer with PSG. In addition to the above players, the PSG team was able to buy the Italian Inter team back player Ashraf Hakeem for 60 million Euros and the FC Porto midfielder Danilo Pereira for 16 million Euros. Many sports commentators say that the PSG team has reaped the maximum benefits from the transfer window this summer. All football fans are watching to see if the PSG team, which has a large number of players, will be able to go on to win the first Champions Trophy.
Manchester United team player purchases
Manchester United Sports Club, one of the most famous football teams in England, also used the transfer window to strengthen their football team. The world’s greatest footballer Cristiano Ronaldo returns to Manchester United. It can be said that it was an unexpected exchange of players.

Real Madrid’s Rafael Warren has also joined United for 40 million. Ronaldo’s arrival and the combination of players including Jaden Sancho are expected to lead Manchester United fans around the world to victory in the Premier League after 9 years.
The Barcelona team that made the strangest player exchange

Real Betis back row player Emerson Royale was bought by Barcelona for 14 million at the transfer window this summer. A release clause of 300 million euros was also agreed for him. But just hours before the end of the transfer window, the Barcelona administration decided to sell him to ‘Tottenham’ for 25 million. 5 million Euros from this amount ‘Betis’ has to pay the team.
Barcelona’s most important player sale in the last minute of the transfer window was the return of Antoine Griezmann to Atletico Madrid on loan. Atletico Madrid were the champions of the Spanish league recently and there is no doubt that it was Luis Suarez who went from Barcelona to Atletico. It was the high salary of Antoine Griezmann that led the Barcelona administration to make the same decision again to strengthen its direct rivals. He signed a contract with Barcelona for a salary of මිලියන 35 million a year. Also, Antoine Griezmann’s lack of success in Barcelona has led to him being sent to Atletico with an option to buy for 40 Euro million.
