Serie A Transfer News

After the early 2000s, the influence of Italy on European club football has been on the wane. AC Milan made three Champions League finals in five seasons, beating Juventus in one, before splitting the other two with Liverpool. Inter Milan won the most coveted title in European football in 2012, and Juventus made the final in 2015 and 2017.

Even in the transfer market, the Italian heavyweights showed their mettle early on in the millennium, with several world-record deals being agreed by different Serie A clubs. With the influx of money in England and Spain, that has changed, but the summer of 2018 promised to be different, as Juventus signed an undisputed superstar in Cristiano Ronaldo.

However, the pandemic era has really diminished the income of Italian clubs and even after bring the fans back into the stadium, most clubs are still trying to recover from their financial losses. As a result, for the past few seasons, Italian clubs have been doing more free transfer and loan deals in the transfer market.
