Season 2019-20: Biggest Serie A transfers
While no Serie A transfer created as much buzz as Cristiano Ronaldo joining Juventus in 2018, several Italian teams have made gutsy moves ahead of the new season. AC Milan bought Theo Hernández, Inter Milan got their hands on Valentino Lazaro and Romelu Lukaku (among others) and Juventus brought in Luca Pellegrini and Matthijs de Ligt. Roma, it turns out, had a hefty budget, investing in Leonardo Spinazzola, Amadou Diawara and Pau López.
The transfer window isn't closed as of the time of writing, so there's still more changes expected to team rosters before the early September deadline.
