Car Crash Season - Several Manchester United Fans Split After Quiet Deadline Day

The transfer market can be a chaotic but occasionally rather predictable place

Zero, nada, nothing. That is how much Tottenham spent on summer transfers and, in the process, became the first club in the Premier League era not to bring anybody in during preseason.

Tottenham are reported to be the first Premier League club to not sign a single player in a summer transfer window, although boss Mauricio Pochettino said he was not disappointed, with only two youngsters leaving the club.

The only addition to the north London club in the new season is a new stadium and even that won't be ready for the first month - at least.

Tottenham Hotspurs was the only team in the league to not have signed any player in the current transfer window.

Pochettino decided keeping players was the priority after a third successive top-three finish.

An earlier transfer deadline and the practical inconvenience of a World Cup and the subsequent delay to players' summer holidays did not make trading any easier.

Chelsea shattered the world record fee for a goalkeeper with an 80-million euro (£71.6 million, $92 million) swoop for Athletic Bilbao's Kepa Arrizabalaga on Wednesday to replace Belgian worldwide Thibaut Courtois, who has joined European champions Real Madrid.

Real Madrid made no hesitation to make a bid for the Belgium captain following the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo to Juventus but Chelsea refused to sell their playmaker.

Russia appoint Steven Seagal as special envoy
The countries have also been at odds over the Syrian civil war and the Russian annexation of Crimea. Seagal's grandparents were Russian Jewish immigrants, according to a biography on IMDB.


There was a certain amount of cash available to spend on Jack Grealish, who would have lessened some of Christian Eriksen's creative burden, but Aston Villa quickly made it clear a deal could not be done even though the player was believed to be keen.

Everton - Everton spent big last season without success but their signings look smarter this time.

Fulham announced five players, all after the deadline - Marseille midfielder Andre-Frank Anguissa in a £22.3m deal, Bristol City left-back Joe Bryan for £6m and Sergio Rico, Luciano Vietto and Timothy Fosu-Mensah on loan.

Jose Mourinho could find excuses should the club fail to excel or win any silverware this season as Manchester United fell short of the required number of players needed for reinforcements, only managing to grab only of a possible six players in the transfer window.

Crystal Palace will be hoping history doesn't repeat itself after signing Ghana striker Jordan Ayew on a season-long loan from Swansea.

Ayew, who has 11 goals in 49 appearances for Ghana, scored 11 times for Swansea last season as he impressed in a struggling side.
