The summer transfer window across Europe is always a buzz of rumours coming from fans and journalists alike.  For most fans it is usually a wish list, followed by the compilation of YouTube videos of their desired players. The European top five leagues have a massive global following due to the lucrative broadcast deals. The money they earn through these deals in turn gives the clubs a significant financial advantage over most other clubs across the world.

The Premier League as a product, has a massive global following due to the number of international players and stars it boasts, who compete at a high-level week in and week out. Although the season has already started, most fans only really feel that the season is well and truly underway once the transfer window and the squads have been finalised.

On Sunday 4 September at 17h30, Manchester United F.C. will host Arsenal F.C. at Old Trafford, in what is always a fiercely contested fixture. Both clubs have seen their fortunes change drastically over the last few decades. However, it seems that this fixture on Sunday could be the reignition of an age-old rivalry that once was the crown jewel of the Premier League fixtures list. Check your local channels and networks for broadcast times, as this will be a very fiery fixture. This might be one not to be missed, even for the neutrals.
