With the transfer window heating up, we took a look at the purchases some of Europe's biggest clubs have made, with Manchester City having spent more than Manchester United, Real Madrid and FC Barcelona combined.

Click through the gallery above to see some of the biggest deals of the window so far.

Pep Guardiola has spent €240.5 million (R3.65 billion) on new players already, which is the second biggest spending spree by any club in history. Benjamin Mendy is City's biggest buy so far, joining Guardiola's side for €57.5 million (R873 million), according to Transfermarkt.

Premier League champions Chelsea have spent €140 million (R2.12 billion) overall so far, with Alvaro Morata being Antonio Conte's biggest purchase, joining the Blues from Real for €65 million (R986 million).

Jose Mourinho's United have made the most expensive acquisition so far, having spent €84.7 million (R1.29 billion) on Romelu Lukaku, but, overall, the Red Devils have "only" spent €119.7 million (R1.82bn).

Italian giants Juventus have also been very active in the transfer market so far, having bought players worth €117.7 million (R1.79 billion) overall, with their most expensive buy being Frederico Bernardeschi, who joined the Serie A champions for €40 million (R607 million).

Bayern Munich's biggest purchase so far is Corentin Tolisso, who joined them for €41.5 million (R630 million), while, overall, the Bundesliga winners have splashed out €100.5 million (R1.53 billion) already.

Arsenal, with €53 million (R804 million), and Liverpool, with €51 million (R774 million), have had relatively quiet transfer windows in comparison to some of the other clubs so far, yet they have still spent more than both Spanish giants Real Madrid and FC Barcelona.

The Catalan giants have spent €47.5 million (R721 million) overall, with Nelson Semedo their most expensive buy, while Los Blancos have only lured two new players, for a combined fee of €47 million (R713 million), to the Santiago Bernabeu.
