The Transfer deadline day has passed us and boy what is insane! 155 million was spent on the deadline day alone as clubs from the Premier League bought new faces, got rid of some deadwood or as in some cases brought back familiar faces. So let us look at why this was the craziest transfer deadline day of all time !

The likes of Moussa Sissoko was bought for 30 million by Spurs. Newcastle must be rubbing their hands in glee because Sissoko is not worth that much money.

But then again this transfer window was the most overpriced window of all time as well! (Craziest Transfer Deadline Day)

Crazy Money was spent !

155 million was spent on deadline day. Yes 155 million ! That is the sort of money that companies strive to earn in a good few years.

David Luiz was the biggest deal of the day which was around 38 million while Sissoko’s move to Spurs also cost around 30 million.

Even Champions Leicester City broke their transfer record to bring Slimani from Sporting for 29 million. (Craziest Transfer Deadline Day)

In what is a first, big clubs sent some of their biggest stars out on loan in a bid to allow them some game time. (Craziest Transfer Deadline Day)

No one is quite sure if this is one off or this is going to be a trend that will continue.

Blockbuster Deals !

The return of David Luiz was a major highlight to Chelsea’s transfer window. His move has almost immediately brought back a positive feeling which has been missing at Stamford Bridge.

Jack Wilshere to Bournemoth was a spectacular transfer but for different reasons. In what could be one of the moves of the summer, Wilshere under Eddie Howe should be pumped up in what is going to be the biggest season of his career.

Joe Hart to Torino was also an amazing move for Torino and could be a super move along the way for Hart as well.

Stoke City Won Big !

Stoke City bought Shinji Kagawa and got Bony on loan. Wow !

It went under the radar but those moves completely transform the present Stoke side and make them a threat to any team in the Premier League.

Bony up front will be supported by the likes of Kagawa, Shaqiri and Bojan with Arnautovic and Afelley on the bench.
