Cristiano Ronaldo remains a prolific scorer deep into his 30s.

The Premier League transfer window has finally shut, with plenty of deals being made just before the deadline.

Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester United and Manchester City have all broken records and spent fortunes as they try desperately to improve their squads for the coming season.

Unlike the rest of Europe, which is buckling under financial problems generated by the Covid-19 crisis, the Premier League continues to fly, with many clubs throwing about significant sums of money.

Since June, Premier League teams have been able to complete transfers for the 2021/22 season.

The transfer window in England opened before all the other major leagues this summer, with Premier League clubs able to purchase players from 9 June.

For most other elite leagues the transfer window opened on 1 July.

The biggest deal of the window has been Man City's signing of Jack Grealish for £100 million - a new Premier League record.

Here is every significant piece of business teams in the Premier League have done this summer, in terms of ins and out.
