Manchester United definitely stole the headlines on transfer deadline day with a stunning loan swoop for a world-class striker in Radamel Falcao, but that deal only scratches the surface of an incredible Premier League splurge which totals £857.7 million.

Despite a frustrating post World Cup scramble it was definitely United that led this crazy transfer scramble, signing six players in a desperate attempt to ensure last season's seventh placed finish was a rare blip on their Premier League record, one that surely won't be repeated given the calibre of stars recruited.

Angel di Maria, Falcao and co. are of course no guarantee of success but their arrivals will help to create a feelgood factor at Old Trafford that has been sorely lacking over the last 12 months.

Arsenal have also proven their not afraid to splash the cash by shelling out for Alexis Sanchez and rather more surprisingly Danny Welbeck, but where do they rank in the list of the Premier League's top five summer spenders?

To give you an indication of how crazy the summer transfer window has been Manchester City don't make the cut, despite spending £54.5m on the likes of Eliaquim Mangala and Fernando.
