Roberto Carlos

The 39 year old Brazilian fullback has now retired from club play. He had already been retired from the national team for several years.

Borja Valero/Alberto Aquilani

Fiorentina were busy last week as they signed two midfielders who had two very different reasons for wanting to leave their respective clubs. Aquilani was constantly on loan while with Liverpool while Valero made it clear he did not want to remain with Villareal after the Yellow Submarine were relegated from La Liga last season. Valero’s move was worth €7 million ($8.6 million).

Milos Krasic

The Serbian winger put pen to paper on a four year, €7 million ($8.6 million) move from Juventus to Fenerbahce.

Junior Hoilett

After much speculation about his future with Blackburn Rovers, Hoilett has signed a four year deal with Queens Park Rangers.

Luc Castaignos

The Dutch striker has returned to his homeland after completing a €6 million ($7.4 million) move from Inter to FC Twente. Castaignos failed to fit in with the Italian giants and consequently signed a four year deal to return to the Eredivisie.

Rasmus Elm

The Swedish midfielder has left AZ Alkmaar and signed a three year deal with CSKA Moscow.

Mattia Destro

The Italian U-21 striker will join Roma from Genoa on loan this season for €11.5 million ($14.2 million) with an option to buy for an additional €4.5 million ($5.6 million) next summer.

Ludovic Guily

The veteran French midfielder will return to Ligue 1 next season after signing a one year deal with Lorient. Guily had been playing with recently relegated AS Monaco.

Ivan Ramis

The Spanish center back completed a €5.5 million ($6.8 million) move from Mallorca to Wigan Athletic. Ramis was reportedly a high priority for newly promoted West Ham United, but Roberto Martinez’s side ultimately came out on top.

James Collins

The Hammers will instead have to settle for former Aston Villa center back James Collins. He signed a four year deal with West Ham last week.

Ron Vlaar

And the dominoes continue to fall as Aston Villa signed Dutch defender Ron Vlaar from Feyenoord in response to Collins’ departure.

Eduardo Salvio

The 22 year old Argentine winger really made a good impression on Portugese powerhouse Benfica. The Eagles paid a club record €13.5 million ($16.7 million) fee to bring in Salvio.

Andriy Voronin

The journeyman forward from Ukraine will go out on loan this season from Moscow Dinamo to Fortuna Dusseldorf in Germany.

Federico Balzaretti

The Italian defender completed a three year, €4.5 million ($5.6 million) move from Palermo to Roma. Balzaretti, who spent his formative years with Juventus, spurned the advances of Napoli to move to the Italian capital.

Kevin de Bruyne

The 21 year old Belgian international will spend the upcoming season on loan at Werder Bremen in the Bundesliga. Chelsea paid €6.7 million ($8.3 million) to bring the youngster in during the January transfer window.

Dickson Etuhu

The Nigerian international has left Fulham and signed a four year deal with Blackburn Rovers.

Anders Lindegaard

The Danish keeper has signed a four year extension with Manchester United. Lindegaard is expected to challenge David de Gea for the starting spot this season.

Vladimir Weiss

The Slovakian winger has left Manchester City and will play for Pescara in Italy.
