With the next transfer window officially opening on Saturday, clubs such as FC Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain have already confirmed a few deals ahead of January. Have a look!
Barca made what is arguably the biggest transfer ahead of the window when they announced that they had acquired the services of Manchester City star Ferran Torres on a five-year deal earlier this week.

The young Spaniard cost the Blaugrana a reported £55 million (R1.1 billion) as he left the Citizens after just one and a half seasons.
Torres, who is formerly of fellow LaLiga outfit Valencia, became Xavi Hernandez's second January 2022 recruit after veteran defender Dani Alves, who arrived at the Camp Nou as a free agent in November.
Meanwhile, former Barca star Rafinha has also made a return to the Spanish top flight, although he joins Real Sociedad on loan from Paris Saint-Germain.
The 28-year-old will be spending the rest of the season at Sociedad, but his loan deal does not include the option of a permanent transfer when it expires.
Although the La Masia graduate will still have 12 months remaining on his PSG contract at the end of the season, he has made only five appearances for Les Parisiens in this campaign, so it remains to be seen where he will be playing his football in 2022/23.
Italian giants Napoli have confirmed the departure of Greek defender Konstantinos Manolas, who leaves the Naples side two-and-a-half seasons after joining from AS Roma to join Greek giants Olympiacos.
Premier League side Watford have also got a couple of signings over the line already, while a former Crystal Palace star has joined a Ligue 1 outfit – scroll through the gallery up top to see some more transfers that have already been confirmed ahead of the January window!
