If there is an expert football lovers trust a lot then it must be the transfer expert, Fabrizio Romano.

Fabrizio gives important and real updates on transfers and he was very functional in the just concluded summer window. He is football fans' companion when it comes to all things transfer.

After an insane summer window, the transfer specialist has listed the five best transfer of the insane summer and surprisingly, it contained neither Cristiano Ronaldo nor Leo Messi.

This summer proved to be the wildest football has seen as it saw departure and return of club legends and stars from and to their former clubs respectively. The deadline day was also filled with surprises as well. Leo Messi, Ronaldo, Ramos, Varane, Griezmann, Lukaku and others were all on the move during the summer window.

The transfer specialist has listed the 5 best transfer of the concluded window;

1. Romelu Lukaku (Inter to Chelsea)

Lukaku secured a move back to his boyhood club, Chelsea during the window. Lukaku had a failed spell at Chelsea when he was a boy as he didn't grab a single goal in 15 matches played for the blues. He moved to other clubs and established himself as one of the world best number '9'. He has also proven to be a dangerous goal poacher. He has accumulated the most transfer fee in the history of football as Chelsea signed the Belgium international back from Inter Milan for a fee of around €115m. Big Rom hasn't disappointed on his return as he has bagged 4 goals in 4 games. One goal in his debut against Arsenal and another in his Chelsea's Champions League debut. More to come from Big Rom.

2. Achraf Hakimi ( Inter Milan to PSG)

Most fans failed to realize the gold PSG secured due to other major signings made by the club. Hakimi is one of the current best full-back in football. He defends, scores, assist and runs the play for his team mates. He isn't your conventional fullback. He is a revolutionized fullback. He was instrumental in the Inter team that ended Juventus' scudetto run last season. He was signed by Paris Saint-Germain for a total fee of €71m and hasn't disappointed ever since. He has gotten couple of assists and a goal to his name since the start of the season.

3. Eduardo Camavinga (Rennes to Real Madrid)

Seems to be one of the best choice Real Madrid made all through the summer. Camavinga demanded a move away from Rennes during the summer but wanted to move away respectfully instead of forcing it. A bid of €30m arrived from the Spanish giant on the deadline day and he was quick to accept. He made his debut for the club in their emphatic 5-2 victory over Celta during the weekend scoring 6 minutes after he was brought on in the second half. He also provided the injury time assist for Rodrygo in their late Champions League group Stage win over the Serie A champions, Inter Milan on Wednesday.

4. Jadon Sancho ( Borussia Dortmund to Manchester United)

Although Sancho hasn't gotten to the heights he created while he was at Dortmund, he still made Fabrizio's list. After much Saga involving Sancho's transfer including a failed transfer during last year's summer, Manchester United finally got their man for a fee believed to be around €85m. He has made his debut for the club but hasn't gotten a goal or an assist yet for the club. He is still adapting to the intensity of the premier league. With time, he will get up and running.

5. Pape Sarr ( Metz to Tottenham hotspur)

The surprise package in Fabrizio's list. Many present-day stars moved in the summer, but this Metz midfielder promises to become a very important player in the future. The potential is huge. Tottenham wanted to buy Pape Sarr immediately for €20 million plus add-ons but Sarr will spend another year on loan in France to mature to the fullest.
