The Premier League transfer window was closed on August 31, so the clubs will now have to work with their current squads until at least January.
Teams in the other leagues in Europe couldn’t spend much due to the financial impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Many high profile players came to the Premier League during the summer transfer window. Manchester United signed Jadon Sancho, Raphael Varane and Cristiano Ronaldo, while Chelsea brought on Romelu Lukaku and Saul Niguez.
While many teams in the Premier League managed to fill the gaps in their squads, not all of them were able to meet their key needs. These clubs have hired rather questionable players to fill their deficient positions.
So without further ado, let’s take a look at the five Premier League clubs with the worst summer transfer windows this summer
# 5 Manchester City
City only brought Jack Grealish in during the transfer window
Manchester City broke the UK transfer record when they signed Aston Villa’s Jack Grealish for £ 100m at the start of the transfer window. The former Villa captain has already impressed with one goal and one assist in his first three Premier League games with City.
However, Guardiola’s number one priority was getting a top striker and long-term replacement for Sergio Agüero.
The Argentine left the club this summer. Without a replacement, the Premier League champions must now have the prospect that the goals will dry up. Pep Guardiola was determined to bring Harry Kane to City just because Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy thwarted the Spaniard’s plan.
It was likely that City would bring on Cristiano Ronaldo before the Portuguese sealed a return to Manchester’s red half.
On the exit front, Raheem Sterling and Bernardo Silva reportedly wanted to look for an exit from City this summer. But the club didn’t sanction the sale for any of them.
City is now going into the season without an absolute goal scorer. It seems clear that Guardiola Gabriel doesn’t trust Jesus as number 9. They also failed to dump players who wanted to leave. So this could be a transfer window the Premier League champions may eventually regret.
