Premier League clubs that broke their transfer records this summer

Premier League clubs that broke their transfer records this summer

Millions of dollars have been spent, mind games have already begun and fan optimism is at its peak which can only mean one thing - the English Premier League is about to raise the curtain on another campaign which promises to be full of intrigue.

"I am not confident, and the market closes today, so it's time, at least for me, to stop thinking about the market because the market will be closed".

Manchester United could do with two deadline day additions, says Wayne Rooney, with Jose Mourinho a couple of players away from competing for the Premier League title. Ivan Perisic, the Croatia worldwide, also featured prominently on Mourinho's wish list but it now seems that United's summer transfer business will be restricted to the arrivals of Fred, the injured Diogo Dalot and Lee Grant, signed from Stoke City as a third-choice goalkeeper.

"My view is that first of all is hard for me to believe we finished second", he added.

The Merseyside outfit have signed AS Monaco midfielder Fabinho, RB Leipzig star Naby Keita, Stoke City playmaker Xherdan Shaqiri and AS Roma goalkeeper Alisson Becker in the summer transfer window so far.


Mourinho warned last weekend that a "difficult season" could lie ahead if they failed to strengthen the squad before the deadline.

Guardiola says key players Kevin De Bruyne and Raheem Sterling are both available to face Arsenal on Sunday, after returning to training on Monday following their respective runs to the World Cup semi-finals with Belgium and England. Rojo - he was injured in the World Cup.

"I know there has been a lot of talk about pre-season in the press but I am sure behind the scenes, Jose has been giving them the right amount of work".

"Because it is very important how they feel and to understand how they think they can help or not help". Martial in the last 20 minutes could have given us the second goal but I couldn't make that change. "If we play good and are consistent like last season, we have a chance to repeat".
