Premier League to analyse earlier transfer deadline - league boss Scudamore

09 August 2018

United finished second last season but ended up 19 points adrift of Manchester City, with Pep Guardiola's men hitting the 100-point mark in a historic season for the club.

This summer has seen the transfer window shortened after EFL clubs voted to bring the closure of the window in-line with that of Premier League clubs.

Manchester City will have a new kit supplier from the 2019/20 season as part of a £50 million multi-club deal negotiated by parent company City Football Group.

The 52-year-old is also tipping Jose Mourinho's Manchester United and Tottenham Hostspur to finish in the top four. Manchester United, who are with Adidas, earn £75 million a year in a 10-year agreement signed in 2014.

All in all, there's never been a better time to join BT Sport as it is set to be our biggest and best season yet.

It's time to get excited for the return of the Premier League.

Pep Guardiola all but confirmed during an appearance on Sky Sports tonight that there will be no more major signings arriving this summer.

"As with all these things, it's only when it comes upon people - but again it wasn't a unanimous decision to do it, so there's bound to be some dissent still around".

"But it was done for the reasons the clubs wanted to do it, for the purposes of not having a situation where clubs are threatened with players leaving to go to other Premier League clubs".

"I speak to clubs who say: "This is fantastic, we knew what the deadline was and we've worked to that".

United's record goalscorer said: "I think it will be hard after the season they had past year".
