Sky Sports Premier League predictor: Tottenham to win the title?

Bad news for Wenger Graeme Souness rules three clubs out of the Premier League title race

PSG boss Unai Emery welcomes the pressure Neymar's arrival brings to the club.

PSG snapped up the Brazil global from Barcelona for a fee of £198m last week, breaking the previous transfer record by more than double.

Hot on the heels of Ireland's most-capped player Robbie Keane joining Indian Super League (ISL) defending champions ATK, former Irish goalkeeper Shay Given has also kept his "doors open" for a stint in the cash-rich football league. And crosstown rivals Manchester United have exceeded the €160m mark with just three signings.

Premier League spending in the current transfer window has rocketed past £1 billion, but Scudamore says PSG's Qatari owners are in a different league. "I am glad that is not us who has got that particular record", he told Sky Sports News.

"That's the owners of Paris Saint-Germain and the Qataris deciding that they want to make a statement and they've made a huge statement", he said.

"And the rather perverse thing with having these buyout clauses is they are meant to prevent players moving".

Of course, a player of Given's calibre does receive a lot of interest from English clubs even at this age and he has revealed that Premier League side Burnley as well as League One club Oldham Athletic are enquiring about him.

The English Premier League season kicks off on Saturday morning with Arsenal hosting Leicester City at 6:45am (NZT), while All Whites skipper Winston Reid will be in action for West Ham United against Manchester United at Old Trafford on Monday 14 August at 12:30am (NZT). When the previous record was £89m [Pogba], to suddenly go to £200m that is something else going on there.

"The economics of the game are straightforward". It is the best players from all over the world playing for some of the top clubs in the world.
