Best Deadline Day Moves

Benjamin Stambouli, Montpellier to Tottenham

There wasn't much to speak of in terms of superstar movement at White Hart Lane this summer, but Tottenham's sense for market value was as strong as ever, particularly in signing Benjamin Stambouli for only £4 million.

As Goal.com's Ligue 1 writer Robin Bairner attests, the 24-year-old will prove his worth to be far more than that sum, WhoScored.com supplying reason as to why:

Mauricio Pochettino may not have been able to land Morgan Schneiderlin from former club Southampton, but at a fraction of the cost, he's got a talent with the potential to show just as much promise.

Lewis Holtby heading on loan to Hamburg frees up space in Spurs' central midfield, and Sandro's switch to QPR leaves room for another tough-tackling anchor to come in.

Stambouli has a touch more elegance to his game than both those players, and Montpellier will be sorry not to have been able to demand a bigger sum.

 

Daley Blind, Ajax to Manchester United

Recently named Dutch Footballer of the Year, it's been a whirlwind 12 months for Daley Blind, his World Cup summer coming to a head with a £13.8 million move to Manchester United.

Blind's acquisition is partly so valuable because of his malleability, able to fill in at left-back, central midfield or as a wing-back, which fits in perfectly with the 3-5-2 system Louis van Gaal is hoping to see progress.

The official Premier League Twitter account quotes the player expressing how happy he is to rejoin his former national team coach, a relationship that promises to benefit both player and manager in the long run:

Despite his versatility, Blind can very much be a specialist in those roles played, as Squawka shows with his success in midfield last season:

All things considered and with his World Cup hype in full flow, the figure paid for Blind will prove extremely smart, his combination of strong physical foundations combined with finer nuances set to play a major part in United's campaign.

 

Radamel Falcao, Monaco to Manchester United

The finances involved run far deeper than fees alone, but all things considered, £6 million is a terrific figure at which to get Radamel Falcao's services for an entire season.

According to The Telegraph's Mark Ogden, wages of £265,000 per week push the entire cost of the transfer up to roughly £20 million for the season, but salary is a statistic that often fluctuates matters needlessly.

The £16 million departure of Danny Welbeck to Arsenal and Javier Hernandez's loan to Real Madrid make sure that there's room for Falcao in Van Gaal's attack, Norwegian pundit Jan Aage Fjortoft spelling out the value of the deal in no uncertain terms:

And that's a truth to the matter; whether required at the club or not, United saw a good deal for Falcao and took it, their goal count sure to soar as a result. Not many strikers can offer the same certainties.
