The English Premier League dominated as Europe's top clubs spent more than $3 billion on new players in the two month transfer market that ended with a frantic burst of deals, according to a study released Tuesday. The 20 Premier League clubs spent about £835 million ($1.38 billion, €1 billion) on players, with Manchester United accounting for about £150 million of that, according to business consultants Deloitte. The Premier League total smashed last year's record transfer dealings worth £630 million. Colombian striker Radamel Falcao joined United while England striker Danny Welbeck left for Arsenal in the final deals announced late Monday.
