The Premier League: The biggest transfer saga of the summer
Free advertising exchange: There are more than 80,000 ads on the Premier League’s Facebook page, which is growing by the day.
That’s an impressive number, but it’s not quite as impressive as the number of players that have already been sold to other clubs.
The number of transfers in the summer was actually higher, but that was because some of those players were sold to the big three (Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool).
In the case of some players, the clubs that have been linked with them are also linked to clubs that already have an offer.
So what does that all mean?
It means that the Premier Lads have a record for a summer of buying new players.
It also means that most of the players that are being sold are probably going to be on the wrong side of 30, with some clubs having a good number of deals.
And the bigger the transfer fee, the better the chances of getting a good return.
Here’s how the transfer window unfolded so far.
September 14th: Atletico Madrid – £11m.
The Spanish side are linked with Manchester United star Radamel Falcao, but have yet to offer the midfielder the chance to leave the Spanish capital.
They are also believed to be interested in Tottenham midfielder Nacer Chadli.

West Bromwich Albion are also rumoured to be willing to offer £18m for Chelsea defender Cesc Fabregas.
The West Ham bid is reportedly being viewed as a ploy to persuade the Premier Club to sell them players who can be moved before Christmas.
West Coast are also keen on the Belgian international, but his agent says he has not received any offers for him.
West Midlands are understood to have asked Chelsea for a loan fee, and the Blues are not willing to sell him to them for £20million.

Norwich City chairman Chris Hughton told Sky Sports News: “I think it’s a fantastic opportunity for us to get into the top four of the Premier league, but we also have a number of other teams vying for the top three.”
