Chelsea, Man City and Man United have a blast on Deadline Day and Leeds have the final say on the chairman’s tweet

And just like that, it’s over… for another six months.

It was an eventful deadline, as Manchester United started the day by officially reuniting Antony with manager Erik ten Hag and Chelsea ended it by bringing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang back to England and Liverpool created a surprise by signing Arthur Melo.

Idrissa Gana Gueye also left PSG, which returned to Everton.

“There is no better feeling than coming home. I am very happy to be here at Everton again, helping and working hard. I will give my soul to this team,” he said. -he declares.

EVENING ENTERTAINMENT

United have added goalkeeper Martin Dubravka to their ranks, meaning they count him and Tom Heaton, who were both the No.1 goalkeepers a few seasons ago, as backup goalkeepers.

A bit of entertainment came from Leeds, via the south of France. Marseille’s Bamba Dieng spent much of the afternoon with a private jet waiting. He was deciding whether to head for Elland Road or his rivals Nice. He didn’t choose Leeds despite chairman Andrea Radrizzani taking out the bunting…

Radrizzani and Leeds had the final say when it emerged Dieng had failed his Nice medical.

Chelsea have added a very familiar face to their ranks in former Arsenal man Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, with Marcos Alonso set to go the other way at Barcelona. Meanwhile, Juventus midfielder Denis Zakaria has joined the Blues on loan.

There were hopes that Memphis Depay could arrive as well but with an hour to go the Dutchman told the fans he had decided to stay on Barca’s bench.

However, the Blues have said goodbye to Billy Gilmour, who joins Brighton for between £8m and £9m.

At Anfield, Arthur Melo’s loan was announced late and will now count Joel Matip as another top player he can call a teammate after Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi and Neymar. You think talkSPORT is joking, but the players really love it.

We thought there was more to come at Arsenal but they couldn’t get a deal for Douglas Luiz down the line.

Everton have secured Manchester United midfielder James Garner, while Tahith Chong has moved to Birmingham permanently.

Out of nowhere, Fulham have signed former Tottenham loanee Carlos Vinicius from Benfica. They also managed to secure a loan move for Daniel James from Leeds.
