  • Gibson was called up to the England squad in 2017

Fulham signalled their determination to stay in the English Premier League by becoming the first promoted team to spend more than £100million (NZ$194m) in England's summer transfer window.

The highest-profile deal at that stage was midfielder Mateo Kovacic joining Chelsea on loan from Real Madrid - with goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois going the other way permanently.

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.

Bridge said: "If you look at the top 10 individual players, you've got three players over £60m, reportedly, and another six over £30m so the value of the players appears to be steadily nudging up each year".

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.

"Premier League clubs' gross player transfer expenditure of £1.2 billion continues to demonstrate the sheer purchasing power of the most commercially successful football league in the world".

Paul Merson speaks the complete truth about Man Utd's summer transfer window
He likes to paint pictures, I'm painting a picture as, you need to work with what you have now. One third of my squad arrived two or three days ago, so it's not easy.

Following his performance, his transfer value skyrocketed and he soon became one of the most sought- after defender in Europe.

So far Tottenham's interest in Aston Villa midfielder Jack Grealish has been rebuffed with the Championship club holding out for a reported fee in excess of £30 million.

At 8:00pm this evening, United and Leicester will do likewise.

"So, when you repeat 1,000 times that my relationship with my players is not good, it's a lie that repeated 1,000 times is still a lie". The manager has to decide which way we play.

The move however irked Guardiola who labelled Napoli president, Aurelio De Laurentiis' decision as unprofessional.

This brings me to the remaining four hopefuls - Spurs, Manchester United, Arsenal and Chelsea.

German couple jailed for selling son, 9, to paedophiles on dark web
A Spanish man was on Monday (Aug 6) sentenced by the court to 10 years behind bars for repeatedly sexually abusing the young boy. In the following months, the court said, the woman organized assaults on a 2-year-old girl she occasionally looked after.

Manchester United ended up in a disappointing second place last season as they failed to win a trophy in Mourinho's second campaign in charge at Old Trafford.

Factor in that £72m of La Liga's take came from one transaction - Kepa's move to Chelsea - and the contrast is even more stark.

The player, however, chose to enter the jet going to France and joined Monaco at the last minute, saying it was a better club for him to develop on his football career.

The goalkeeper Alex Smithies has come in from QPR, the defender Greg Cunningham has joined from Preston and the on-loan midfield pair Víctor Camarasa and Harry Arter were signed on deadline day although the latter is ineligible to play against his parent club.

There was a certain amount of cash available to spend on Jack Grealish, who would have lessened some of Christian Eriksen's creative burden, but Aston Villa quickly made it clear a deal could not be done even though the player was believed to be keen.
