Four statistics that prove Sadio Mane is the signing of the summer
It was a crazy summer for the Premier League, with the division as a whole outspending the vast majority of Europe single-handedly with an outlay in excess of £1billion and smashing countless records in the process.
Indeed, 13 top flight sides set new record transfer fees during the summer window and although Liverpool’s swoop for Sadio Mane didn’t officially break theirs (however, it could go on to with future add-ons), his initial £34million price-tag certainly raised a few eyebrows.

In fact, we’re billing him as the signing of the summer – and here are FOUR stats from around the web to prove it!
