The summer transfer season has already kicked into high gear, even if the window isn't officially open just yet, with a number of clubs making big-name signings, and spending heavily to do so. 

Manchester City has already recruited the likes of Bernardo Silva and Ederson, while rival Manchester United has brought in Victor Lindelof. Bayern Munich broke the Bundesliga record for Corentin Tolisso, while chief competitor Dortmund has already announced four new signings.

There are plenty of more millions to be spent this summer and plenty of more big names expected to change home stadiums.
