After yet another year of thrills, spills, and Jim White making us all very happy, the 2015/16 transfer deadline day has past – and we are going to round up the major points of today, and the window as a whole.

Most expensive transfer:

£55 million (Kevin de Bruyne – Wolfsburg to Manchester City)

De Bruyne made just three Premier League appearances for Chelsea before joining Wolfsburg in 2013 for £16.7 million. This summer, he has broken a Manchester City club record. There was speculation all summer, and even talk that the 24-year old would return to Stamford Bridge – Chelsea fans may wish that to be true, given that de Bruyne will join a side who have their 100% record intact so far this season.


Most important transfer (well, sort of…):

David de Gea…

Well – where do I start? I felt sorry for our good friend Mr. White, who has in the past provided such entertainment on this hallowed day, was almost drowned out by this saga. Real Madrid had the whole of the summer to negotiate a move… But they saved it until the final day anyway. A deal was negotiated – Manchester United would get £29 million, and goalkeeper Keylor Navas, in return for giving up de Gea’s (near world class) services. But, a paperwork mix up scuppered the biggest transfer of the summer (que several social media videos riddling Ed Woodward). United have kept one of the best goalkeepers in the world, but will he really have a future at Old Trafford?


Best bit of business: 

Pedro (£21 million – Barcelona to Chelsea) 

This is more due to the audacity of the transfer, rather than the money or anything else. Pedro, for all intents and purposes, was Manchester United-bound. All of the papers, most of the pundits and practically all of us probably thought that the Spaniard’s move to Old Trafford was a case of if, not when. But, Master Mourinho snuck in, and somehow stole Pedro from under Louis van Gaal’s nose – and not for a bad fee either. The multiple-trophy winner then scored and grabbed an assist in his first game against West Brom… Just to rub salt into the raw wounds of many in a Red Devils shirt.


The… Least sensible… Bit of business: 

Anthony Martial (£36 million – Monaco to Manchester United)

Martial has now become the most expensive teenager of all time. He is 19 – that’s almost £1.9 million for every year of his life. No pressure then, as the eyes of all turn to see whether he can relieve the pressure currently mounting on Wayne Rooney – which seems unlikely.
