Hazard and Rodri in most expensive summer signings XI

There is still over a month of the summer transfer left but already Europe's big clubs have been splashing the cash on new talent.
Eden Hazard
completed a £150million move from Chelsea
to Real Madrid
, with the Spaniards also spending big on Ferland Mendy and Luka Jovic.
Across town, Atletico
Madrid have splurged £126m on wonderkid Joao Felix, while others on the move include Frenkie de Jong, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Tanguy Ndombele.
We select a most expensive transfer XI from the main summer moves so far. 
Jasper Cillessen -  £31m
Barcelona to Valencia 
Valencia completed the signing of Holland goalkeeper Cillessen from their La Liga rivals Barcelona, paying around £31m.
With Valencia set to return to the Champions League next season, the 30-year-old's experience will come in useful. 
Aaron Wan-Bissaka - £50m
Crystal Palace to Manchester United 
One of the hottest prospects in English football, who only made his senior debut at Crystal Palace in February last year.
Now he is a £50m right-back that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has pinned Manchester United's rebirth on.
Lucas Hernandez - £68m
Atletico Madrid to Bayern Munich 
Bayern aren't considered one of the big spenders when compared to the other European heavyweights, but they shelled out £68m to bolster their back line with the signing of Lucas Hernandez.
The German champions will hope the French World Cup winner will strengthen their chances of returning to the top in Europe. 
Eder Militao - £45m
Porto to Real Madrid 
Money is no object for Real Madrid this summer after they failed both in La Liga and the Champions League last season.
Eder Militao, the Brazilian centre-back, is one of a number of eye-catching and expensive signings ordered by manager Zinedine Zidane. 
Ferland Mendy - £49m
Lyon to Real Madrid 
The downturn in Marcelo's form presented Zinedine Zidane with a problem this summer.
Real Madrid's acquisition of the £49m Lyon left-back solves that and at 24 there is plenty more still to come from Mendy.
Rodri - £63m
Atletico Madrid to Manchester City 
How to improve upon a domestic treble? With midfield players like Fernandinho and David Silva in the autumn of their careers Pep Guardiola has moved swiftly this summer.
Breaking Manchester City's transfer record at £63m is a great show of faith in the talents of the former Atletico Madrid star. 
Frenkie de Jong - £65m 
Ajax to Barcelona
The agreement was completed back in January but Barcelona only got to officially unveil de Jong this week following a £65m deal with Ajax.
One of the most highly-regarded midfielders in the world, de Jong, 22, will certainly add something even to the Barcelona team
Tanguy Ndombele - £65m
Lyon to Tottenham Hotspur 
Tottenham waited some 18 months to make a transfer before unveiling two in one day.
Expectations are high for Ndombele - Spurs' record signing at £65m - whose all-action style so impressed at Lyon. 
Joao Felix - £114m
Benfica to Atletico Madrid 
Quite possibly the most exciting teenage talent in world football. Less than 12 months after his professional debut, the 19-year-old is now the fifth most expensive footballer in history. 
Luka Jovic - £62m
Eintracht Frankfurt to Real Madrid 
An extraordinary season at Frankfurt culminated in a mammoth £62m move to Real Madrid for Luka Jovic.
After 25 goals last season he will be expected to chip in similar numbers by Zidane this term. 
Eden Hazard - £150m
Chelsea to Real Madrid 
It finally happened. Eden Hazard had been fluttering his eyelashes at Real Madrid for almost 12 months, and finally his dream move came to fruition.
The Belgian has commanded a £150m fee but there is no doubting his pedigree and appetite for the glamour of the Bernabeu.
