It has been a busy summer for Almeria thus far, with Aleix Vidal joining Sevilla in a deal that saw goalkeeper Julian Cuesta move the other way on a three-year contract.

Meanwhile, 21-year-old midfielder Ivan Sanchez joined from Atletico Madrid's reserve side.

Ximo Navarro and Tomer Hemed have also both joined from Mallorca.

Atletico Madrid

Last week, Bayern Munich confirmed that they had reached an agreement with Atletico for the transfer of Croatian forward Mario Manduzkic, who has joined the club on a long-term deal.

Highly-rated Benfica goalkeeper Jan Oblak, meanwhile, confirmed earlier this week that he had agreed to move to the Vicente Calderon.

Diego Costa has already moved on to Chelsea this summer and will be joined by Filipe Luis after the two clubs agreed a deal for the left-back.

Miranda, however, is expected to remain with the La Liga champions despite strong interest from Manchester United and Barcelona. As it stands, the Brazilian's buy-out clause is around £24m.

Despite the signing of Mandzukic, at least one more new striker is expected to arrive, with Chelsea's Romelu Lukaku and Manchester City's Alvaro Negredo both linked with the Vicente Calderon.

However, this week, Negredo has revealed a desire to fight for his position at City.

Arda Turan could be heading for Liverpool, however, with the Premier League club said to be preparing a £32m move for the Turkish international.

Adrian Lopez has also made the switch to Porto, which has intensified Atletico's interest in Hellas Verona midfielder Juan Iturbe.

Barcelona

It has been a busy seven days for Barcelona.

Luis Suarez finally completed his move to the Camp Nou last Friday, with the Uruguay international joining for a figure believed to be in the region of £75m.

New centre-backs remain a priority for the club, but it is understood that moves for Paris Saint-Germain defender Marquinhos and Valencia's Jeremy Mathieu have both stalled.

In terms of Xavi, club president Josep Maria Bartomeu said earlier this week that a final decision still had not been made regarding the veteran's future.

Bartomeu also confirmed that there would be at least two more signings this summer.

Dani Alves had looked certain to leave the Camp Nou this summer, but has recently revealed his happiness in Barcelona.

In terms of outgoings, Alex Song and Bojan are both expected to leave the club in the near future, while Isaac Cuenca has already moved on to Deportivo La Coruna and goalkeeper Oier Olazabel to Granada.

Cristian Tello, meanwhile, has joined Porto on loan.

Fidel Chaves has joined on loan from Elche, while Lopez Garagi has moved on a free transfer after leaving Sporting Gijon.

The business continued towards the end of last week, with Fede Cartabia joining on loan from Valencia and Jose Carlos on a free transfer from Rayo Vallecano.

Cameroon midfielder Patrick Ekeng has also arrived, but the club are expected to be frustrated in their attempts to sign Chelsea attacker Uli Davila on loan for another season.

Since then, former Real Zaragoza boss Victor Fernandez has been appointed as the new manager.

In terms of incomings, Isaac Cuenca has joined on a one-year contract from Barcelona, while Deportivo are also hopeful of completing a deal for Cuenca's former teammate Bojan, but face strong competition from Premier League side Stoke City.

They are also believed to be in the market for Wolfsburg's Ibrahim Sissoko.

Eibar

Eibar have added fresh blood to their squad this summer, with Javi Lara joining from Ponferradina.

More recently, goalkeeper Jaime Jimenez has joined from Real Valladolid and striker Angel Luis has moved to the club from Levante.

In terms of outgoings, Raul Navas has signed a permanent deal with Real Sociedad, but will remain on loan at Eibar for the 2014-15 campaign.

However, the club's president Jose Sepulcre said last week that no offer had been received.

Pedro Mosquera has arrived on a free transfer from Getafe and he has been joined by Polish goalkeeper Przemyslaw Tyton, who has moved on loan from PSV Eindhoven.

First-choice goalkeeper Miguel Moya has departed for Atletico Madrid this summer, meanwhile, leaving the capital outfit in the market for a new stopper this summer, with Valencia's Vicente Guaita believed to be their main target.

Levante

New boss Jose Luis Mendilibar's toughest task this summer will be to fight off interest in Costa Rican goalkeeper Keylor Navas, who is now regarded as one of the best stoppers in European football.

A brilliant performance in Costa Rica's sensational World Cup campaign has not made his task any easier, with a number of clubs monitoring proceedings.

The latest developments in that story were revealed on Monday, with the goalkeeper releasing a statement saying that his future will be decided in the next few days.

Real Madrid

Madrid's first major signing of the summer is expected to be Toni Kroos, with the Bayern Munich midfielder due to be unveiled at the Bernabeu on Thursday.

Reports of a move for Monaco forward Radamel Falcao have quietened down, but club teammate James Rodriguez has reportedly agreed personal terms over a big-money move to Spain.

Madrid are also believed to be preparing a move for Real Sociedad's Inigo Martinez, with Raphael Varane linked with a move away from the club.

Real Sociedad

Antoine Griezmann, who scored 20 times last season, continues to be linked with a host of European clubs, but the Frenchman has hinted that he could sign a new deal with the Basque club.

Liverpool, however, fresh from the sale of Luis Suarez, are reportedly preparing a £20m offer, while Monaco are also said to be monitoring developments.

Goalkeeper Claudio Bravo, however, has departed the club for Barcelona, with Sociedad reportedly interested in signing Valencia's Vicente Guaita as the Chilean's direct replacement.

Spanish centre-back Inigo Martinez, meanwhile, continues to be linked with Real Madrid.

Sevilla

Earlier this week, it was confirmed that Sevilla had signed Liverpool forward Iago Aspas on loan for the 2014-15 campaign.

It is understood that Sevilla have entered the race for Marseille midfielder Mathieu Valbuena, who starred at the World Cup for France this summer.

Liverpool, meanwhile, have reportedly reignited their interest in Spanish international Alberto Moreno, having previously been priced out of a move.

Right-back Coke is believed to have turned down the chance to sign for Marseille this summer and will instead commit to a new deal in Seville.

Alberto Botia, meanwhile, who spent last season on loan at Elche, has vowed to fight for his spot in the XI this season.

Sevilla have also been linked with Celta Vigo goalkeeper Yoel, while Juventus midfielder Fausto Rossi, who spent last season with Real Valladolid, has recently talked up a move.

Valencia

The transfer saga regarding Jeremy Mathieu continues to drag on, with Valencia unprepared to sell the Frenchman for under his £20m asking price and Barcelona, at the moment, refusing to meet that figure.

A move for Marseille attacker Valbuena, meanwhile, has seemingly stalled, while there was also bad news regarding Juan Bernat, with the talented 21-year-old moving on to Bayern Munich on a long-term deal.

Los Che have also been strongly linked with a move for Benfica forward Rodrigo, with reports claiming that the 23-year-old could join this week.

In terms of outgoings, Adil Rami has left for AC Milan and Fede Cartabia has joined Cordoba on a season-long loan.

Villarreal

On Tuesday, Villarreal officially announced the signing of Antonio Rukavina from Real Valladolid following weeks of speculation.

Rukavina has been joined by Jonathan dos Santos, who has moved to the Yellow Submarine from Barcelona, while Javier Espinosa has signed a free transfer from Barcelona B.

Giovani dos Santos proved key for Villarreal last season, with his form also aiding talk of a move, but the Mexican, along with the likes of Bruno and Cani, seem unlikely to leave despite interest, with club CEO Fernando Roig Nogueroles recently claiming that the club are confident of keeping their key players this summer.

However, French forward Jeremy Perbet revealed earlier this week that he is leaving the Yellow Submarine this summer.
