Transfer Deadline Day Will Jose Mourinho need a deal sheet

Transfer Deadline Day Jose Mourinho

Fulham signaled their determination to stay in the English Premier League by becoming the first promoted team to spend more than £100 million (US$127.68 million) in the summer transfer window.

"Two seasons ago, Antonio [Conte] won the Premier League and after we won with 30 points ahead [of Chelsea]".

While overall spend may be down, Premier League clubs did spend a record £880 million to transfer-in players from overseas clubs (compared to £770 million in 2017). Leicester, meanwhile, enter the season hoping that Algerian signing Rachid Ghezzal proves an adequate replacement for Riyad Mahrez, but they have retained a strong spine to their team, featuring Kasper Schmeichel, Harry Maguire, Nigerian midfield dynamo Wilfred Ndidi and striker Jamie Vardy. Hotsportstv.com takes a look at the top ten moves that should have happened but never did because of the unpredictable nature of the transfer market.

According to data analysis website FiveThirtyEight, City has a 45-per-cent chance of winning the Premier League again this season.

However, Chelsea was dealt a huge blow when the striker chose to join AC Milan in a loan move that also involved Italian defender, Leonardo Bonnucci moving to Turin as part of the deal and that was how Chelsea failed to land one of Europe's most prolific strikers in Serie.

Tottenham provided the most players to the World Cup semi-finalists, but strong performances in Russian Federation were not a necessity when it came to Premier League clubs deciding whether to spend the fruits of soccer's biggest television contracts. Maurizio Sarri replaced another Italian, Antonio Conte, and will have to deal with a Chelsea without goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois, who forced a transfer to Real Madrid this week.

Bournemouth are also experienced campaigners at this level, and won't make things easy for Neil Warnock's Cardiff.


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

The Mirror reported in mid-July that the Serie A giants had already tabled a loan offer for the cast aside defender, and with the Red Devils not initially handing the player a squad number before the full back was hastily added to the list as an afterthought, at least a 12-month loan exit looks likely.

Maguire has made a decision to remain with Leicester City and will travel to Old Trafford, not for transfer talks but to play against the Red Devils in their league opener on Friday.

The new season gets underway in just two days, with Manchester United hosting Leicester City. They couldn't even sign a player from the Championship.

The move however irked Guardiola who labelled Napoli president, Aurelio De Laurentiis' decision as unprofessional.

Sarri didn't get off to the best of starts last week as Chelsea were easily brushed aside by Manchester City in the Community Shield.

The summer window closed in England at 5pm on Thursday evening, with Liverpool one of few clubs enjoying a quiet deadline day after securing four key signings earlier in the summer.
