This year has been a busy one for the game of football, and the news is starting to come in with the big international tournaments starting this week.
Here is our guide to the top 20 players who are making some of the biggest moves.
Australia: The All Blacks’ captain, Conrad Smith, has been one of the most influential players in the game’s recent boom.
But while the World Cup and other big international events have been big draws for the All Blacks, Smith has also been involved in some pretty big moves in recent months.
Last month, Smith made a huge move by buying a stake in Newcastle Knights, which will give him the option of buying back the club in a future transfer.
In the past two years, Smith’s club has spent over $30 million on players, while his own team have been able to spend even more, spending over $50 million in total.
Smith is a huge fan of the game, and has taken part in several events to celebrate the All Black Cup and the Rugby World Cup.
The New Zealand international has also spent time on the move, making the move from his home in Australia to New Zealand for the upcoming Rugby World Series.
New Zealand will play England in the 2019 Rugby World Cups final, and Smith is certain to be on the pitch when the teams meet in 2019.
“This is the perfect opportunity to play for New Zealand Rugby.
It’s a great opportunity for me and it’s a fantastic chance for the team.
It was a really tough decision to sell a stake to Newcastle, but I’m delighted I’ve had the opportunity to do that,” Smith said.
France: France have been at the top of the world rankings for some time now.
They have just completed their first ever World Cup, and they have played well in their matches, winning their opening World Cup match.
However, the big move in the French sporting world this year has not been in their World Cup campaign.
French star Lionel Messi is the star of the show, and it is no surprise that the Argentine has been the subject of plenty of transfer rumours in recent years.
Leo Messi is currently the most expensive player in world football, spending an astonishing $85m over the past four years.
Messi’s purchase from Barcelona in 2011, however, was a deal that was agreed at a time when the Argentine was already the world’s most expensive footballer.
Messi’s buy-out clause was only worth around $15m, so it is clear that the Argentina superstar is a superstar at the highest level of the sport, and his buy-outs were one of many reasons why the transfer was done.
Argentina’s move to a 4-4-2 system in 2019 saw Messi move to the wings for most of the match, where he has been successful, scoring eight goals in his five matches for the national side.
It is no secret that Messi is an absolute beast in possession, as he has the ability to create space for his team mates, with his trademark acceleration and acceleration of the ball being very difficult for defenders to deal with.
While Messi has a great amount of potential, it is his incredible speed and pace that has made him so successful, and he has become one of Argentina’s most iconic players.
England: England are coming off a very strong season, winning the Six Nations, but this season has been marked by some changes at the back.
With the departure of Rob Holding, there is a lack of depth at the position.
Another player who was expected to be a key part of the England backline this season, Dan Cole, has struggled to establish himself in the England starting line-up.
Cole has started just one of England’s five matches in the Six-Man Squad, but his lack of playing time is something that has been questioned, and is likely to continue for some of this season.
This is not England’s first World Cup failure, and with England set to face France in the tournament opener on Tuesday night, it could be a long time before the squad has a chance to gel.
Jordan Henderson and Jack Butland have also been a disappointment this season in the role of No.9, and England may have to wait until the final day of the World Series to see whether or not they can add a third No. 9 to their squad.
Italy: Italy’s squad is one of their most potent, as they have been the team to beat at Rugby World Championships and the Olympics.
Their World Cup triumph in 2018 was also their first title in the World Rugby World Rankings, and their second in the International Rugby Board (IRB) rankings.
Despite their recent success, Italy have been missing a number of key players this season due to injury.
Alex Corbisiero is still recovering from a knee injury that cost him the final two World Cup matches, while Andrea Rizzo is currently out with an Achilles injury.
