Premier League summer transfer window XI: Ronaldo, Lukaku, Grealish and more

Planet Sport has picked our best line-up from the players who have moved to English clubs this summer and there are some superstars involved...

What a window it has been.

Mike Arteta signed a defender, Ben White from Brighton, for £50million, while Man City and Chelsea broke their respective transfer records.

Aston Villa, Chelsea, Manchester City, Manchester United and Arsenal are the biggest spenders in Europe this summer - and we thought the bubble in English soccer would burst?

Deadline day has passed and Sky Sports News was just not the same without Jim White and his yellow tie.

Anyway, Planet Sport have decided to select a Transfer Window XI to celebrate and these are the players which fit 'our philosophy'.

Aaron Ramsdale

The English goalkeeper joined Arsenal from Sheffield United for £30million.

He is yet to make his Premier League debut for the club and it's probably a good thing because they have shipped in seven goals in two games.

Ramsdale did make his debut in the EFL Cup though, keeping a clean sheet as the Gunners trounced West Bromwich Albion 6-0.

While he has spent both league games on the bench, we expect him to take the No.1 jersey from Bernd Leno. Then again, who knows, it is Arsenal.

Raphael Varane

The marquee signing when it comes to defenders this summer.

After much speculation, the Frenchman penned a deal that will keep him at Old Trafford until 2025.

Having won 19 trophies in his career, including four Champions Leagues and the 2018 World Cup, Varane's experience will be priceless.

Well, that's if you forget his weekly wage of £340k.

The ex-Real ace and Harry Maguire started their partnership with a clean sheet against Wolves in a 1-0 win in which Varane assisted Mason Greenwood's winner.

Jannik Vestergaard

A shrewd piece of business by Brendan Rodgers.

Arriving for £15millon, the centre-back will offer stability at the back for the Foxes, especially following the injury to Wesley Fofana.

The Danish defender is also returning from injury, but he is set to return and based on recent campaigns, he will steady the ship.

Kristoffer Ajer

The Norway international signed for Brentford this summer from Celtic for an undisclosed fee.

At 23, Ajer has huge potential and kept Wilfried Zaha quiet during their stalemate against Crystal Palace in the second game of the season.

Defenders to have moved from Celtic to the Premier League include Virgil van Dijk and Kieran Tierney and they haven't been too shabby. Brentford will have high hopes for the centre-back.

Jadon Sancho

Manchester United finally got their man after missing out on the England international last summer.

Sancho - who came through the Manchester City academy - was snapped up from Borussia Dortmund for £73million.

The winger impressed when given minutes at Euro 2020 and was involved in 36 goals for Dortmund last season.

He should be a joy to watch in the Premier League.

Moussa Sissoko

Hear us out…

He may well have his critics but for a fee in the region of £5million, this could be the bargain of the summer for Premier League newcomers Watford.

The midfielder has bags of experience and has played in Europe's biggest club competitions as well as being part of France's Euro 2020 squad.

If they had Sissoko's experience in 2019/20 it could have proved the difference between staying up and being relegated.

Joe Willock

He is the player Steve Bruce desperately craved.

Willock left Arsenal to join Newcastle United for £25million and he will be a vital member of the team.

After joining on loan in 2020/21, Willock netted eight goals in 14 appearances to keep them up. Arteta has probably made another mistake here.

Jack Grealish

Pep Guardiola smashed the British transfer record to get his man and judging by the start he has made, Grealish has settled in well at Man City.

But then again, Arsenal can make anyone look good. Sorry Gooners, we can't help it.

At Aston Villa, he was a big fish in a small pond but playing under Guardiola is a different kettle of fish. Pressure will be on Grealish to deliver after moving in a deal worth £100million.

With the likes of Phil FodenRiyad Mahrez and Kevin de Bruyne, we doubt he'll struggle. Although we imagine some Villa fans will be hoping so…

Cristiano Ronaldo

Not one to be outdone by Lionel MessiCristiano Ronaldo completed an emotional return to Man United.

He's 36 years old, we get it. But nothing suggests he won't be a smash hit, especially judging by his performances at Euro 2020 which won him the Golden Boot.

It may not be the Ronaldo of 2011 or even 2017 but the 2021 version is enough to bag 20 goals in the league and guide United to a domestic trophy this campaign.

Following the announcement, a nine per cent rise on the New York Stock Exchange for Manchester United plc saw the value of the club increase by  more than £150million.

The Glazers don't miss a trick, do they?

Romelu Lukaku

Another forward reuniting at a former club in Chelsea. His first spell was not so successful and he was eventually shipped out to Everton before Man United captured his signature.

Considered a flop at Old Trafford, Lukaku moved to Italy in 2019 and here, he became Serie A top goalscorer and won the Scudetto last season.

It earned him a move to the Blues under Thomas Tuchel for £97.5million.

The Belgian striker scored on his debut against Arsenal (shock) and will be pivotal to Chelsea's title challenge.

Danny Ings

A proven goalscorer, Ings' future at Southampton had been up in the air for quite a while.

Tottenham were linked with a move but it was a surprise switch to Villa in the end for £30million.

Ings has already showcased his talent, scoring a sensational overhead kick against Newcastle in the second game of the season.

If he remains fully fit then expect him to challenge for this season's Golden Boot.
