Gareth Bale becomes the world's most expensive player with his 100 ($147m) move from Tottenham Hotspur to Real Madrid, surpassing the $140m Madrd paid Manchester United for Cristiano Ronaldo. Bale's move triggered the sale of Mesut Ozil for 50m from Real Madrid to Arsenal.

Edinson Cavani's move from Napoli to PSG is the second biggest transfer at a reported $90m. The top transfers involving EPL clubs (buying) were Manchester City's purchase of Fernandinho from Shakhtar Donetsk for $55m and Chelsea's purchase of Willian from Anzhi Makhachkala for the same fee. Manchester City can be backed at odds of $3.10 to win the 2014 EPL, as can Chelsea at the same price.

Top spending team were naturally Real Madrid, having spent almost $250m, with Tottenham Hotspur second spending 110m ($190m).

Newly promoted Monaco having spent $181m on Falcao, Rodriguez and Moutinho. Monaco are currently second favourites to win Ligue 1 at odds of $4.10, with PSG short priced favourites at odds of $1.39.

Manchester United lost out on Ander Herrera from Athletic Bilbao and also had a late bid for Sami Khedira rejected by Real Madrid, but they just about managed to get the signing of Marouane Fellaini through for a cool $50m.

The free transfer of Kaka from Real Madrid to AC Milan shows how fickle football can be. In 2009 AC Milan sold Kaka for a then world record 68.5m, in just 4 years, he moves back to Milan aged just 31 for free! What price Bale back at White Hart Lane on a free transfer by 2018?

The most surprising signing of the summer has to be the signing of One Direction's Louis Tomlinson by English Championship side Doncaster Rovers. Yes that's correct!
