Manchester United ended their summer spending spree by signing six players for over £200m and are the second most expensive player in the Premier League.
United are spending the most on Anthony’s players, while Casemiro and Lisandro Martinez deals are among the top 10 deals made this summer.
The Red Devils have been strengthened in all departments, with the club fully backing Eric Ten Haag. The only position without reinforcements is the attacking position.
20 times champion of England with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Memphis Depay was even on deadline day, but not a single move ended up being a reality.

according Football Insiderthe Premier League giants attempted to sign Lloyd Thomas from La Liga side Espanyol but failed.
“Erik 10 Tag’s team have been looking for a new center all summer and made a late bid for the 27-year-old Spaniard,” the outlet reported.
The Spain international is set to leave following a disagreement with current manager Diego Martinez, who left him out of the matchday squad for the first three La Liga games of the season.
No action is taken
His form has alerted a number of Premier League clubs to his availability, keen to add the former Real Madrid player to their ranks.
The Spanish striker has scored 40 goals for Espanyol over the past two seasons, including 20 last season, and his contract with the La Liga side expires in June 2026.
After a disastrous start, United turned things around with three rebound wins, and Marcus Rashford played his maverick role admirably.
United’s next test will be against top-ranked Arsenal on Sunday as they look to continue their winning streak.
