Since football is played worldwide, and many leagues have different playing schedules, there needs to be a set time for teams to buy and sell players. This is known as the transfer window, and the end of the transfer window, the deadline day, is basically a holiday for football fans. It’s where last-minute deals are made, usually with big name players.

Manchester United have made some amazing last minute deals with Angel Di Maria, Daley Blind, Marcos Rojo, and Radamel Falcao all signing within the last few days of the window. All of them are high quality players and can add a lot to any team, but all of them to one team is exciting to see.

Arsenal bought Danny Welbeck from Manchester United, which I’m kind of confused by. Arsene Wenger has done marvelous things in the past, but he hasn’t had much silverware lately. He needed to sign a top player, not another depth forward. Sanogo and Giroud are both average strikers like Welbeck. I think Arsenal should have invested in a new manager honestly.

Queens Park Rangers were able to seal the deal with Sandro from Tottenham. I think this is a great signing for QPR, he’ll be a great addition in the midfield, and he should see the pitch more often than not, that is if he can stay injury-free.

Chelsea were able to bring in Loic Remy for more depth up top. I can see Chelsea winning the league with the quality of additions they had this window. With Diego Costa, Didier Drogba, and Loic Remy up top, I see loads of goals happening for them, unlike Arsenal and Welbeck.

All in all, £835 million ($1,378,455,575), was spent on transfers and is a record setting amount.
