The summer 2022 transfer window is open in all of Europe's major leagues, and the deals are coming thick and fast as clubs look to get as much business done as possible.

10 June was the day that the biggest clubs around the continent were finally able to swoop for talent, and they now have until the end of August to get the deals done.

It promises to be a thrilling window, and indeed even before it opened there was plenty of action. Kylian Mbappe, of course, rejected the opportunity to move to Real Madrid and instead signed a new contract with Paris Saint-Germain, while Manchester City captured Erling Haaland, who promises to be a superstar for many years to come.

There will also be plenty of surprises thrown up, no doubt, with Barca seeking to perform miracles again by defying their financial situation to make some big-name signings while Real Madrid close in on football's latest €100 million man, Aurelien Tchouameni of Monaco.

FOOTBALLTRANSFERS' MOST VALUABLE PLAYERS IN THE WORLD

In January 2022, Juventus broke Serie A's record for the most expensive winter deal in signing Dusan Vlahovic for €80 million, while supposedly cash-strapped Barcelona spent €55m plus add-ons on Manchester City star Ferran Torres.

This summer we are certain to witness some even bigger deals.

Liverpool, Chelsea and Man United will have to spend to put an end to Manchester City's stronghold over the top of the Premier League.

And Newcastle's new owners are likely to double, at least, the £93m they splashed in the previous window, as they look to close the gap on the Champions League contenders.

But when did the 2022 summer transfer market open in Europe's big five leagues and when will it shut its doors?
