The rise in prices is backed up by the transfer fees previously paid for this summer's top 10 Premier League signings, with none of them costing more than £13m when they were last signed. The speculation and failure to properly bolster the side has stirred up a lot of disquiet amongst the Red Devil's camp.The unease has seemed to have relaxed, with the odds-on favourite Manchester United being able to see off the advances of Leicester City, especially during a home performance.

The window remains open to European clubs until the end of August, so there is still the possibility of players going out even after the English deadline passes.

A deadline day double deal with Barcelona for Yerry Mina and Andre Gomes offers excitement - they join former team-mate Lucas Digne at Goodison Park - while Brazilians Bernard and Richarlison add plenty of flair in the final third.

The Brazil worldwide was, until Chelsea signed Kepa Arrizabalaga last week, the world's most expensive goalkeeper following his £65m move from Roma.

Versatile full-back Matteo Darmian has been linked with a return to Italy, but injuries to summer signing Dalot and the experienced Antonio Valencia leaves them short at right-back.

They have already made a positive impression ahead of the new campaign by winning the Community Shield with an emphatic 2-0 victory over Chelsea at Wembley on Sunday.

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has stated that his team has a "good chance" of becoming the first Premier League champions to retain the title since 2009, but only if they can continue to perform with the same consistency that characterised last season. Leicester forced attack after attack, but each one failed to bring the foxes equal.In his debut in the Premier League, youngster James Maddison, who signed this summer from Norwich city, looked very impressive.

"Equally, it appears to have removed the element of panic-buying, whereby a club may have a poor start to the season and think "we've got to go out and spend to safeguard our future in the Premier League".

"It's not about adding because it's fashionable to sign players, " Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino said.

The flurry of late deals took deadline day above last year's total of 17 transfers - to 25, the highest amount since 2014 - but the total number of transfers in the window fell for the fifth year in a row.

"It's true our targets are always the same level as Manchester United, Manchester City or Real Madrid but for different circumstances we can't achieve that".

"We [already] spent a lot on young, young players for the next seasons". Benitez is in the previous year of his contract at Newcastle and friction with owner Mike Ashley looks certain to continue.
