“Citizens” also did not sign too many newcomers last summer. Nevertheless, Manchester City spent 127.5 million euros. The main signing of the “citizens” was winger Jack Grealish, for whom they paid Aston Villa 117.5 million euros. In addition, the British have signed Fluminense winger Kayla for 10 million, who will join them in January, and have brought back goalkeeper Scott Carson as a free agent. At the same time, Manchester City was never able to get a central striker. Sometimes Josep Guardiola’s team has problems without a “tip” in the attack, but the specialist has many players at his disposal who can score. Perhaps, in January, the “townspeople” will return to looking for a forward.
Manchester United (€ 140m)
Manchester United became one of the main heroes of the summer transfer window along with PSG. United has issued 3 high-profile deals at once. The Mancunians have signed defender Rafael Varana (Real Madrid; € 40m) and winger Jadon Sancho (Borussia D; € 85m), and have brought forward Cristiano Ronaldo (Juventus; € 15m) back to Old Trafford and goalkeeper Tom Heaton (Aston Villa; free agent). Manchester United now has one of the best rosters not only in England but throughout Europe. Mancunians are required to compete for trophies in all tournaments. Time will tell how it will be in practice. So far, United has won 2 wins and 1 draw at the start of the season.
Arsenal (165.6 million euros)
Surprisingly, the worst team in the Premier League was the most wasteful last summer. Arsenal has lost all 3 matches at the start of the season without scoring a single goal, so they occupy the last, 20th place in the Premier League standings. At the same time, the “Gunners” actively worked to strengthen the composition. Goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale (Sheffield United; € 28 million), defenders Nunu Tavares (Benfica; € 8 million), Takehiro Tomiyasu (Bologna; € 18.6 million) and Ben White (“ Brighton; 50 million euros), as well as midfielders Sami Lokonga (Anderlecht; 17.5 million euros) and Martin Edegor (Real Madrid; 58.5 million euros). At the same time, Arsenal transferred Folarin Balogun to the first team, who had already played 2 matches in the Premier League. The Gunners are building a young team that needs to be made competitive in the shortest possible time. Let’s see what Mikel Arteta can do.
