Transfer round-up video: Who were the best summer signings?
Video: The Independent's digital sports team - Simon Rice, Jack de Menezes and Tom Sheen - discuss which clubs made the best deals
Tuesday 02 September 2014
With Radamel Falcao and Angel Di Maria moving to Old Trafford, the transfer headlines have focused squarely on the goings-on at Manchester United under new boss Louis van Gaal.
That is to be expected given the turmoil at United since Sir Alex Ferguson left last summer and with the club setting a new British record transfer fee of £59.7m to sign Di Maria.
Yet we believe there are other summer signings that represent better deals than those of Falcao, Di Maria and other big name transfers.
