Fabio Coentrao    D    Monaco
Coentrao has joined Monaco on a season-long loan, BBC Sport reports.

Fantasy Analysis

The fullback fell out of favor at Real Madrid last season and has now been loaned out to French side Monaco for the rest of the season. Coentrao was signed from Benfica for £25m in 2011 but has fallen down the pecking order lately.
Kevin Trapp    G    Paris Saint-Germain
Trapp made three saves during PSG's 1-0 win over Montpellier on Friday, recording his third consecutive clean sheet.

Fantasy Analysis

Trapp, who joined PSG this summer and immediately replaced Salvatore Sirigu as the starter, has made seven saves in his first three appearances for the reigning champions, and there will likely be plenty more clean sheets on the horizon.
Maxwell    D    Paris Saint-Germain
Maxwell assisted on Blaise Matuidi's 60th-minute winner in PSG's 1-0 victory over Montpellier on Saturday.

Fantasy Analysis

The PSG defense has been elite this season, posting three consecutive clean-sheet victories. Maxwell's spot in the starting XI appears secure, and there could be plenty of clean sheets to follow.
Blaise Matuidi    M    Paris Saint-Germain
Matuidi scored on his only shot attempt in PSG's 1-0 win over Montpellier on Friday.

Fantasy Analysis

Despite taking just one shot in both of the last two matches, Matuidi has found the back of the net twice already, helping PSG to three consecutive wins. He netted only four times in 34 appearances (25 starts) last season, so while the early scoring output is impressive, fantasy owners are warned not to get too carried away.
Rémy Cabella    M    Marseille
Cabella has been loan to Marseille for the rest of the season, with an obligation to buy if certain benchmarks are reached.

Fantasy Analysis

Cabella heads to France as part of the deal that brought Florian Thauvin to Newcastle on Friday. Cabella has much more opportunity for playing time in Ligue 1, and could be a viable fantasy option with the appropriate number of starts.
Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa    D    Lyon
AS Roma has sold the center back to Lyon, less than a year after the club acquired him, Football Italia reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Yanga-Mbiwa was a bad investment for Roma. Luckily another club was willing to pay slightly more for his services.
Rémy Cabella    M    Marseille
Cabella (thigh) is not in the 18-man squad to face Southampton on Sunday.

Fantasy Analysis

Cabella seemed like a long shot to be fit after tearing a thigh muscle back in July, but he still has a shot for next week's match, which will come Saturday against Swansea.
Angel Di Maria    M    Paris Saint-Germain
Paris Saint-Germain announced Thursday that Di Maria has signed with the club after transferring from Manchester United.

Fantasy Analysis

Di Maria spent only a single season in the Premier League, as his strong start to the season was thrown upside down by injury and ultimately a loss of his starting job. He is widely considered a world-class player but he simply couldn't find the right role in Louis van Gaal's system. He is expected to slot right into the starting lineup for PSG and could help propel them deep in the Champions League.
Rafael    D    Lyon
Rafael signed a four-year contract to join Lyon on Monday, reports Sky Sports.

Fantasy Analysis

The defender had one year remaining on his contract with Manchester United, but was deemed excess to manager Louis van Gaal's squad for the coming season. New signing Matteo Darmian is seen as Rafael's replacement at the club.
Angel Di Maria    M    Paris Saint-Germain
Di Maria has travelled to Doha to undergo a medical ahead of a transfer to Paris Saint-Germain, reports Sky Sports.

Fantasy Analysis

Speculation about Di Maria's future with Manchester United grew when the midfielder failed to meet with the rest of the squad after his summer break. Now a transfer to PSG looks to be a certainty, and United are set to picket £44 million from the deal after paying £59.7 for him last season.
