Transfer silly-season is still rolling on, but many Premier League teams have done their business early in the quest to improve for the coming campaign... Here are five summer signings who will have a significant impact on the destination of next season's Premier League trophy.
Mourinho has failed to get the best out of Andriy Shevchenko and Fernando Torres before now. They, of course, weren't his own choice of players, but there is little evidence to suggest he will have any more success with Radamel Falcao.
Falcao simply wasn't ready for a full season in a league programme as action packed as England's. He is crying out for a proper summer's rest and with that under his belt there is every chance the Falcao of old will rise from the dead.

It turns out Radamel Falcao's move to Manchester United was an ancestral homecoming for the Colombia striker, whose great
While transfer negotiations were sill going on, the team were struggling on the pitch. But now that the window has closed and the squad is complete, United look an altogether different beast.
