Europe's transfer winners and losers

Monday the 2nd of September 2013, is a day for many to remember in the football world.

Managers and players were running up and down to seals for their targeted players while players handing transfer requests to move on with their lives.

It’s been a quiet transfer for other managers but they had reacted in the last hour of the closing window transfer.

English teams were active than any other European leagues on the last hours to boost their squads. Deals were done but it was disappointing for big clubs as their bids were turned down.

The English champions [Manchester United] were the biggest loser on the transfer as they only managed to sign one player from Everton [Marouane Fellaini], and they saw their bids for the Spanish international and Barcelona player [Cesc Fabregas] turned down as well as the Athletic Bilbao [Ander Herrera].

The London outfit [Arsenal] took people by surprise and they were seen as the biggest winner on the transfer as they managed to sign Mesut Ozil from Real Madrid. The German international joined Arsenal on deadline day for a club record €47 million which was held by the Russian Andrey Arshavin.

Tottenham made a big cash as they sold their 2012/13 season star [Gareth Bale] to the Spanish giants Real Madrid on the world record signing fee €100 million.

Bale's move was the most significant of the transfer window as it took both teams some time to come to an agreement.
