Serie A is spending a lot of money this summer, but why the sudden surge?

The ESPN FC experts discuss Carlos Bacca's possible transfer from Sevilla to AC MIlan, where Alejandro Moreno believes Bacca will be impressive at Milan.

Ending austerity is quite the zeitgeist and nowhere more so than in Italy. Cautiously optimistic about moving out of recession this year and seeing accelerated growth in 2016 and 2017, Europe's third biggest economy is showing the first signs of recovery. Italian football would appear to be, too.

"Rich again," declared La Stampa. A year ago, Serie A's clubs had spent €126.4 million on recruitment by the end of June. Even though the market was kind of on standby because of the World Cup,...

AC Milan make breakthrough with Bacca joining and deadwood leaving

AC Milan are reportedly close to confirming the signing of Sevilla striker Carlos Bacca.

It may have taken them longer than it should but it finally appears as though Milan are identifying the problems in their squad and addressing them.

It has been a busy week in the transfer market, with good moves being made both in terms of signings and letting players go. From Nigel De Jong signing a contract extension to the arrival of Andrea Bertolacci, the Rossoneri have been smart so far and it is reported that Sevilla striker Carlos Bacca will arrive sooner rather than later.

While those...

Top 5 transfers in Europe: Martinez, Mandzukic, Imbula, Kondogbia, Castro

The ESPN FC experts discuss Carlos Bacca's possible transfer from Sevilla to AC MIlan, where Alejandro Moreno believes Bacca will be impressive at Milan.

If there's one thing we can be sure of in this summer's transfer window, it's that the Premier League will continue to be the epicentre of big business. The recent transfer of Dimitri Payet from Marseille to West Ham, for example, showed how uneven the playing field is, with a star leaving one of Europe's biggest traditional names for a reported salary of £65,000-a-week that the French giants couldn't dream of paying.

Yet there's plenty going on elsewhere in Europe. Italy is the biggest spender...

Samuel Eto'o's farewell to Sampdoria has some creative copy and pasting

Samuel Eto'o only scored two goals in his 18 games at Sampdoria.

With Samuel Eto'o's move to Turkish side Antalyaspor said to be days from completion, he has cleared out his locker and said his goodbyes to everybody at Sampdoria.

However, a few eagle-eyed fans out there spotted that the emotional open letter Eto'o has penned to thank the "warm, passionate and affectionate" Samp fans for their support bears an uncanny resemblance to the open letter the striker wrote to thank the "warm, passionate and affectionate" Everton fans for their support on his departure...

The transfer window rumours and speculation promote hope among fans

Manchester United assistant manager Ryan Giggs says the club intends to make signings with star power, to return the club to the top of English football.

Will Manchester United ever sign Wesley Sneijder? Or Nicolas Gaitan? Produce a word cloud for the club's last eight transfer windows and those two would be in a font so big, you could see it from the moon.

Will Arsenal nail down William Carvalho or even his long obsolete prototype, the lesser-spotted Yann M'Vila? Could this the year that Liverpool finally sign a wincing Edinson Cavani?

Every summer transfer window seems to see the same football clubs linked with the same players, or at least the...

Roma train sights on Man City's Edin Dzeko after Nainggolan, Bertolacci deals

Roma midfielder Miralem Pjanic has been vocal in wanting his fellow Bosnian Edin Dzeko to join the Serie A side.

Roma transfers can often seem long and dragged out. While that may be true of every club to some extent, fans have watched impatiently as the club negotiated back and forth for the permanent transfer of Radja Nainggolan from Cagliari.

This was an affair that should have been settled sooner than it was last week because the importance of keeping the Belgian at the club was simply unquestionable.

The second part of his registration fee from Cagliari cost Roma €9 million, exactly half of what...
