Ever since the Premier League was formed in 1992, it has grown into one of the leading leagues in Europe and has become an arena for successful managers and players seeking to become legends.
Another thing it has attracted is money. Lots of it. TV deals, sponsorship, and advertising has made it highly lucrative with leading brands fighting for the attention of football mad consumers.
The summer transfer window has also been a mainstay of the Premier League, with fans and pundits alike, keeping tabs on the latest transfer news regarding their teams of interest.

As the years have passed it has become more and more important as clubs scramble to buy the top players.
The transfer window for the upcoming season is likely to be the most lucrative yet but what are the factors behind it? We’ve identified a few.
Top Managers Attract Top Players
The Premier League has always had its fair share of quality managers, but with the arrivals of Jurgen Klopp, Jose Mourinho, Antonio Conte and Pep Guardiola, this upcoming season may well be the most exciting yet.
They are some of the most successful managers, and as a result, are able to attract equally impressive players.
All four managers have been linked with some of the best players recently, and their clubs are happy to spend big to secure the best talent.
Lets also not forget the likes of Arsene Wenger, Claudio Ranieri and Mauricio Pochettino as well.
Competitive Nature of the League
If we can take anything from the Premier League last season, it is that the league is highly competitive and unpredictable.
Leicester City defied the odds by winning the league comfortably ahead of some of the most powerful clubs, and did so in exciting fashion.
The Premier League is arguably the most entertaining league in the world, and for a player seeking a new challenge, England is a popular destination.
The European Championships
Just like the World Cup, the European Championships provide top players with a fantastic opportunity to showcase their talent.
Many a deal has been done in huge part to a player’s performance in a major competition, and it will be no different this summer.
Premier League coaches and club owners will be watching the Euros closely, keeping an eye on the best talent.
Premier League Clubs Pay More
Winning trophies is probably foremost in the minds of players seeking a switch to a new club, but money is also a key factor.
Players have a short career and seek to earn as much as they can. As recently as 2014, it was revealed that the wages paid out to Premier League players was significantly higher than those paid out by clubs in Germany, France and Italy – another major attraction.
Money talks, especially in football.
So there are four reasons why this summer is set to be an exciting one for all 20 Premier League teams, and only time will tell who has the most efficient window.
