Manchester City

In: Rodri (£63m), Joao Cancelo (58.50m), Angelino (£10.80m), Pedro Porro (£10.80m), Zack Steffen (£7.20m)

Out: Danilo (£33.30m), Douglas Luiz (£15.12m), Fabian Delph (£8.55m), Manu Garcia (£3.60m), Pablo Mari (£1.53m), Vincent Kompany (Free), Eliaquim Mangala (Free)

Net Spend: £89.10m

They didn’t need much strengthen, but they did it anyway. There marquee signing Rodri from Athletico Madrid has looked good in his opening games for Guardiola’s side and a fitting replacement for the ageing Fernandinho. Losing their captain and living legend Vincent Kompany will hurt fans. But constant injuries as well as his age have caught up to him and is certainly replacable now.


Solid window. Increased depth but nothing completely new added. Lots spent, but they can probably afford it.

Manchester United

In: Harry Maguire (£78.30m), Aaron Wan-Bissaka (£49.50m), Daniel James (£15.30m)

Out: Romelu Lukaku (£58.50), Ander Herrera (Free), James Wilson (Free), Antonio Valencia (Free)

Net Spend: £84.60m

Defense has been addressed. Will it pay off? We’re yet to see, but they certainly looked good against Chelsea on Sunday. If it works then Man United could be right back in the title mix. Wan Bissaka and Maguire both with stand out seasons last term will look to carry the form straight to Manchester. Lukaku always failed to impress at Old Trafford. His time always seemed limited and a fresh start in Italy might do him good. 


They’ve got what they needed. This Grade could change depending how they perform but they’ve bought in their targets.


In: Sepp Van Den Berg (£1.71m), Adrian (Free)

Out: Danny Ings (£19.98m), Simon Mignolet (£6.30m), Alberto Moreno (Free)

Net Spend: -£26.37m

Barely took part. Hard to improve this team. Little known Sepp Van Den Berg is one for the future and they haven’t sold anyone to worry about. Turning a profit is a good sign but you think they need to improve or at least increase depth if they are to really go again and challenge City.


Squad has barley changed. But they’re probably still up for the fight.


In: Tanguy N’dombele (£54m), Giovani Lo Celso (£14.40m Loan), Ryan Sessegnon (£24.30m), Jack Clarke (9.90m),

Out: Kieran Trippier (£19.80m), Vincent Janssen (£8.10) Fernando Llorente (Free), Michel Vorm (Free)

Net Spend: £74.70m

Pochettino seems to have got his targets. A surprise late bid for Paulo Dybala almost came off and could’ve sent Spurs fans into ecstasy but it fell through. N’dombele had a up and down debut capped off with a fantastic equaliser. Lo Celso is very highely rated and Pochettino has wanted Sessegnon for over a year. Only really losing Kieran Trippier who had an awful season last year.


First time they’ve spent in a while. Dybala could’ve made this A++ but a much needed increase in quality depth is good enough for a B.


In: Nicolas Pepe (£72m), William Saliba (£27m), Kieran Tierney (£24.30m), David Luiz (£7.83m) Gabriel Martinelli (£6.03m), Dani Ceballos (Loan)

Out: Alex Iwobi (£27.36), Krystian Bielik (£7.38m), Laurent Koscielny (£4.50m), David Ospina (£3.15m), Carl Jenkinson (£1.98m), Aaron Ramsey (Free), Danny Welbeck (Free), Petr Cech (Retired), Stehen Lichsteiner (Free)

Net Spend: £91.89m

They’ve spent a lot. They’ve backed their manager and we’ll have to see if it pays off. Davd Luiz is the important one. They already had scary attacking players but they’ll need David Luiz to make Mustafi better and not just double his mistakes. Ceballos and Pepe could be very intresting compliments to their already frigtening attack.


This could be fireworks if all there strikers play well. But it could be a clamity at the back if David Luiz doesn’t play with his head.


In: Mateo Kovacic (£40.50m)

Out: Eden Hazard (£90m), Ola Alna (£9m), Tomas Kalas (£8.10m), David Luiz (£7.83m)

Net Spend: -£79.52m

They did all they could. The transfer ban makes new boss Frank Lampard’s job nearly impossible. A dreadful start in Manchester won’t have helped with confidence in an already off the pace squad. Kovacic was the only signing possible in their situation. The big news here is the loss of Eden Hazard. He was always on his way out and was the differnce in so many games last year. He we be sorely misssed.


They’ve had a hand tied behind their back but this is still a very poor window. They’ve lost their best player by a mile and can’t sign anyone to replace him. They’re really relying on Callum Hudson-Odoi to step up.
