Done deals - Europe's most expensive transfers: Neymar, Dembele, Lukaku,

The FC crew debate whether the price of Neymar's PSG move is a bad sign for football or a special exception in the market.

The transfer window is well underway, but here are the biggest deals (over £30m) you may have missed from around Europe so far. And check back for updates.

For a full breakdown of all transfers in Europe's major leagues, sortable by club, please click here.

Note: All fees are undisclosed and based on ESPN FC sources unless noted with *.

Neymar - Barcelona to PSG: £198m

Neymar smashed the previous world record of £89.3m.

Well, this one came out of almost nowhere less than a month ago and one of Barcelona's star players has now moved for a new world record. It's the biggest transfer this window. This biggest transfer in history. Though Barcelona now have £198m to spend on new talent.

Kylian Mbappe - Monaco to PSG: Loan, then £166m**

Mbappe is from Paris, so it ended up being a dream move.

It's been on the cards for some time, and the money is not yet in Monaco's accounts as it won't be a permanent deal until next summer, but Mbappe has moved to PSG on loan to avoid FFP issues, before becoming the second highest transfer in the world.

Ousmane Dembele - Dortmund to Barcelona: £97m

Ousmane Dembele
Barcelona used some of their money from the sale of Neymar to fund the purchase.

After a few weeks of negotiations, Barcelona were able to snap up a replacement for Neymar for the mere price of €105m, rising to €147m with bonuses. Dembele, 20, is now the second-most expensive player of all time, with the winger even beating Paul Pogba's £89.3m move to Man United last season.

Romelu Lukaku - Everton to Man United: £75m

Everton recouped a massive fee for Romelu Lukaku.

Lukaku was linked with a move back to Chelsea but chose Manchester United instead and is now a teammate of his friend Paul Pogba. Reports suggest the final price with add-ons could be a new world-record of £90m. Wayne Rooney went the other way in a separate deal.

Alvaro Morata - Real Madrid to Chelsea: £60m

Alvaro Morata had attracted interest from Man United.

Morata scored 15 goals in 26 appearances for Real Madrid in La Liga last season but wanted a chance to become undisputed first-choice. Antonio Conte gave him that chance.

Benjamin Mendy - Monaco to Man City: £52m

Benjamin Mendy becomes the world's most expensive defender.

Mendy impressed with Monaco last season and will now have to deal with the pressure of being the world's most expensive defender at Man City.

Alexandre Lacazette - Lyon to Arsenal: £46.5m

Alexandre Lacazette joined Arsenal from Lyon for a club-record transfer fee.
Arsenal moved quickly to snap up Alexandre Lacazette.

He almost moved to Atletico Madrid but due to their transfer ban, Lacazette arrived at Arsenal from Lyon this summer instead. 

Kyle Walker - Tottenham to Man City: £45m

Kyle Walker
The fee for Kyle Walker has been criticised but he could be worth every penny.

City have been on the lookout for full-backs and made Spurs' right-back Walker the joint-most expensive defender in history for a fee that will reach £50m with add-ons.

Gylfi Sigurdsson - Swansea to Everton: £45m

Gylfi Sigurdsson has been one of the best Premier League players in recent seasons.

The Iceland international signed a five-year contract, with big-spending Everton laying out a club-record fee for a midfielder they had been chasing for some time.

Bernardo Silva - Monaco to Man City: £43m

Bernardo Silva in action for Manchester City.
Bernardo Silva was the first big deal through the door.

Portugal international Silva won Ligue 1 with Monaco last season and caught the eye of Pep Guardiola, who snapped him up in June before any other major clubs had done business.

Nemanja Matic - Chelsea to Man United: £40m

Mourinho and Matic won the league together in 2014-15 at Chelsea

A reliable, selfless performer in defensive midfield, the Serbia international reunites with his former manager at Chelsea as Man United seek to win their first Premier League title since 2012-13.

Tiemoue Bakayoko - Monaco to Chelsea: £40m

Manchester United were interested in Tiemoue Bakayoko but Chelsea pounced.

Another starlet from Monaco's Ligue 1 winning side, Bakayoko chose to line up alongside N'Golo Kante in a fearsome looking midfield at Chelsea.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain - Arsenal to Liverpool: £40m

Oxlade-Chamberlain had been at Arsenal for six years.

Arsenal lost another English player to a rival, and Liverpool got a young, hungry midfielder. The key was his contract ending in 2018 and desire to play in central midfield, something Jurgen Klopp offered over Chelsea.

Leonardo Bonucci - Juventus to AC Milan: £37.46m

Leonardo Bonucci
Leonardo Bonucci made the shock choice to move on from the champions.

It is a transfer that rocked Italy as Milan kept up their spending spree by stealing one of Juventus' best players. Instead of heading off to Chelsea, Bonucci chose to stay in Serie A.

Davinson Sanchez - Ajax to Tottenham: £36.6m

Davinson Sanchez joined Tottenham from Ajax.
Davinson Sanchez is now one of the world's most expensive defenders.

Sanchez became the club's first signing of the summer, and the most expensive in Tottenham history, breaking the £30m record set by Erik Lamela and Moussa Sissoko. And the defender's price tag could rise to €42m (£38.4m) with add-ons, depending on his appearances and success.

Paulinho - Guangzhou Evergrande to Barcelona: £36m

Neymar wanted the club to sign Paulinho before he left the club.

Remembered by many for his failures at Tottenham, the Brazil midfielder was reborn in China and made the move to Barcelona to add some squad depth to a flagging team.

Corentin Tolisso - Lyon to Bayern Munich: £35.3m*

The France international is tipped for a bright future.

With another €15m in add-ons to come, Bayern have secured their future with the signing of the 22-year-old midfielder. 

Danny Drinkwater - Leicester to Chelsea: £35m

Drinkwater has been reunited with N'Golo Kante.

The English premium was at its best on deadline day as Chelsea bought themselves a new midfielder, and a familiar one to star player N'Golo Kante. Will the duo be able to do what they did at Leicester though?

Federico Bernardeschi - Fiorentina to Juventus: £35m

Federico Bernardeschi of Fiorentina celebrates after scoring one of his two goals against Napoli.
Bernardeschi opted to stay in Italy.

After the forward said he would not renew his contract, Juventus snapped him up. He may not oust Gonzalo Higuain or Paulo Dybala but it's a good get.

Ederson - Benfica to Man City: £34.7m*

Ederson is now the most expensive goalkeeper in the world.

With Joe Hart farmed out on loan and Claudio Bravo not trusted, Pep Guardiola spent a record fee for a goalkeeper on the 23-year-old Brazilian stopper. He could be No. 1.

Mohamed Salah - Roma to Liverpool: £34.3m

Liverpool were after a winger with pace and they got him.

Salah did not impress too much during his spell at Chelsea a few years back, but Liverpool will hope he can overcome his past.

Antonio Rudiger - Roma to Chelsea: £34m

Rudiger will be comfortable in Chelsea's back three.

The Roma defender made it clear it was Antonio Conte that persuaded him to move to the Premier League and the 24-year-old has plenty of time to develop his game.

Andre Silva - FC Porto to AC Milan: £33.6m*

The Portugal international is blossoming with Cristiano Ronaldo.

AC Milan continued their summer of spending by adding the 21-year-old forward to their strikeforce. Big things are expected.

Vitolo - Sevilla to Atletico Madrid: £33.08m*

Vitolo is still just 27 and has room to grow.

Atletico Madrid are under a transfer ban until January 2018 but signed the Spain winger and immediately loaned him out to Las Palmas.

Victor Lindelof - Benfica to Man United: £30.75m

Victor Lindelof had been tracked by United for some time.

The Sweden international was linked with a move to Old Trafford for almost six months and finally completed the deal in June as Jose Mourinho got his first signing of the summer.
