Premier League 2022-23: The cost of living crisis in England has overtaken Premier League clubs with the all-time record for a full season, £1.86 billion ($2.15 billion) from 2017-18, under threat of being broken when the transfer window closes later.

But in contrast, United and their domestic rivals have not found any unusual fee or wage demands beyond them.
Last Thursday, gross spending by the 20 Premier League teams stood at £1.5 billion, surpassing the 2017 record of £1.43 billion spent by English clubs in the close season window.

It was also more than the £1.44bn spent in the whole of last season.

Manchester United helped reduce the gap further early on Thursday when Erik ten Hag was reunited with another of his former Ajax protégés, Antony.

The 22-year-old was priced at €95 million, making the Brazilian forward the fourth most expensive player in Premier League history.

“This is an incredible moment in my career to join one of the most iconic clubs in the world,” Antony said in a statement on United’s website.

His fee is a record for an Eredivisie player, relegating former Ajax teammate Frenkie de Jong’s €86m move to Barcelona to second place. Ironically, United have pursued the latter throughout the close season without success.

Antony is likely to be United’s last big-money signing of this window, with a reported £60million for 30-year-old Brazilian midfielder Casemiro their other eye-catching capture.

“As a manager, you always want more,” said Ten Hag.

“You always want to maximize, but at a certain point you also have to be satisfied with what’s there.”

His spending pales into insignificance compared to Chelsea’s, whose indifferent start to the campaign mirrors United’s.

Thomas Tuchel has splashed out around £250m of the American owners’ money and has received similar backing to former owner Roman Abramovich in the transfer market.

After finally landing France defender Wesley Fofana for £70million on Wednesday, Tuchel remains keen on signing veteran Gabonese striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang from Barcelona.

The 33-year-old would cost around £7.5m with Chelsea defender Marcos Alonso also part of the package.
This despite Aubameyang being sidelined for several weeks after breaking his jaw in a burglary at his house earlier this week.

Tuchel is also rumored to be keen to spurn Ajax for another star, Edson Alvarez, who would be significantly more expensive than Aubameyang.

Liverpool have been relatively thrifty in the transfer market, but Jurgen Klopp is known to want a midfielder – even more so with Jordan Henderson injured in the 2-1 win over Newcastle on Wednesday.

Klopp is a known admirer of Aston Villa’s Brazilian midfielder Douglas Luiz, who has a year left on his contract.
Villa could do with him as they have made a poor start to the season – they are second from bottom after five games – but their manager and former Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard admits the matter is out of his hands.

“There are more than two people in control of it, but I’m definitely not one of them,” Gerrard said.

“It will be Douglas, it will be his agent and it will be what happens around it.

“We are not in a position where we need to lose top players.

“But at the same time Douglas has a year left and it’s really one of those really sensitive situations where the club has to do what’s best for the club, not necessarily what’s best for me.”

Liverpool are also trying to sign Brazilian midfielder Arthur Melo on loan from Juventus.
