With continued speculation over possible transfers, how are Manchester United and Arsenal fairing in the transfer market?
Arsenal so far, have signed an under-21 French international for free. Yaya Sanogo from Auxerre.
This is the signing that will win Arsenal a trophy this coming season? Maybe in 3 years but patience is running thin.
Although Arsene Wenger has placed bids on prolific players such as Luis Suarez and Gonzalo Higuain, he and the board are unwilling to pay the fees being demanded and therefore have failed to land either player.
New Man United boss David Moyes would no doubt have liked to have made a larger impact by now, but unfortunately all he has done is sign Uruguayan defender Guillermo Varela for a fee of £1.55 million.
Again Moyes has tried to sign players like Cesc Fabregas from Barcelona, but the Spanish club's unwillingness to sell makes a deal look unlikely.
Meanwhile every day that passes brings you nearer to the day that Marouane Fellaini's release clause of £22 million expires.
Manchester City however, look to have hit the ground running.
Having already spent £95.8 million on several extremely talented players, they look like a team that can boast a starting 11 that could potentially win the UEFA Champions League providing their manager can find a winning formula.
What’s putting David Moyes under even more pressure is the constant speculation surrounding Wayne Rooney and a proposed move to Chelsea. If this deal goes through they will have England’s number 10 and Andre Schurrle in their ranks to score goals, not to mention young gun Romelu Lukaku.
For the time being it looks as if Man City and Chelsea will run away from Arsenal and current champions Man United. But, the transfer window remains open for another month meaning plenty of things can change. I'm sure we are all keen to see how this summer plans out for all of the Premier League clubs.
