With one week to go before the winter transfer deadline, there will be plenty of rumors, uncertainties and last-minute dealing to be had yet. But one thing is certain: Even if the window ended today, the last month would go down in history.
According to Deloitte, more than £440 million ($542.7 million) has been spent in the current transfer window by Premier League clubs alone, making it the biggest winter transfer window in league history. Of that massive sum, nearly half has been spent by one club. It’s an absurd fact from an absurd window that has once again shaken up the global transfer market.
