Expect increased Premier League spending in January, predicts Deloitte

  • Chelsea's England under-21 international Lewis Baker has been sent to Leeds- his fifth loan move in three years

Throughout Manchester United's 2-1 victory over Leicester City on the opening night of the Premier League, the club's academy graduates were pivotal in ensuring Jose Mourinho's side got off to a winning start.

Under proposals presented to Federation Internationale de Football Association president Gianni Infantino by an internal task force, the transfer window would close the day before the start of the domestic season in each member country.

Their failure to bring anyone in is the first time a Premier League club has not made a signing in the 15 years of the summer transfer window.

"It's important to win and play well, we played well in periods against a good team that invest more than us", he told Sky Sports News after the match.

"On gross spending, you've got Liverpool and Chelsea who people might expect - Chelsea spending out of necessity having lost their goalkeeper (Thibaut Courtois)".

"That is my experience at Barcelona and Bayern Munich".

"We didn't sell players and with 25 players in the squad it is hard to add players".

And City defender Kyle Walker epitomised the squad's hunger for more silverware by cutting short his post-World Cup holiday to return to training ahead of the Community Shield.

Local authorities quickly ruled out terrorism as a motive for the incident, and said the F-15s "were not involved in the crash ". He told Scott the plane crashed into a forested area "where it didn't look like there were any homes in the immediate area".

Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino has been one of the more outspoken critics of the shortened window with time running out for Spurs to make a single signing this summer.

"Raheem and Kevin had three weeks off after the World Cup, which is not too much time [for pre-season] but they both arrived in the flawless way", Guardiola explained. It will be a hard season for everybody, not just for us.

Silva, who featured in all three of Manchester City's warm-up matches as well as the Community Shield, looks set to start against Arsenal on Sunday.

And more fans than the Club cares to acknowledge recognise the challenges and achievements of running a sustainable business and building a top class stadium.

The Russian star was one of the players to behold at the Russia 2018 World Cup as he dazzled for the hos t country enroute to a respectable quarter- final finish at the World Cup.

Liverpool and Chelsea each in turn broke the world record fee for a goalkeeper, signing Alisson Becker and Kepa Arrizabalaga respectively, among some of the big-money moves.

Dan Hughes hopes Mourinho allows the team to "express themselves" and plays an attacking game the "United way", stating the club have a good team at their disposal even with no new defensive signings.

Signed by Liverpool when they desperately needed some strength between the sticks, we can certainly hope for greater things to come from this young Brazillian.
