Transfer round-up: Complete club-by-club guide to the 2014 transfer window as Radamel Falcao and Diego Costa head £835m influx
Premier League clubs smashed the previous record for money spent in a single transfer window with Manchester United leading the way
Manchester United just couldn’t be kept quiet, could they? Louis van Gaal’s side may be out of the Champions League and yet to win a competitive fixture this season, but they stole the show on transfer deadline day as they beat Arsenal and Manchester City to the loan signing of striker Radamel Falcao.
As if the blockbuster signing wasn’t enough, United had already spent over £150m on new players – including a British record transfer fee of £59.7m for former Real Madrid star Angel Di Maria – and Van Gaal finally has the squad he wanted to try and install a new “philosophy” at Old Trafford.
Chelsea also enjoyed a successful transfer window, although it seems an age since the deals to bring Diego Costa and Cesc Fabregas to Stamford Bridge were announced. Arsenal also made some significant moves too, with the £35m addition of Alexis Sanchez backed up by the deadline day move for United’s Danny Welbeck in a £17m permanent switch.
