The 2016 summer transfer window has officially closed. This post will inform you on all the biggest moves that occured. Paul Pogba returned to his former club, Manchester United from Juventus for a world record fee of 105 million Euros! Manchester United seemed to be the big spenders this year, also signing former Villereal center-back Eric Bailly for 38 million Euros, Dortmund’s Henrikh Mkhitaryan for 42 million, and Zlatan Ibrahimovic (PSG) on a free transfer! United weren’t the only big spenders in Manchester though. City bolstered their squad with names such as John Stones (55 million from Everton), Claudio Bravo (18 million from Barcelona), and Leroy Sane (50 million from Schalke), making them a formidable oppent for Jose Mourinho’s Reds (Manchester United).
