The biggest transfer window in football history slammed shut this Summer, and Premier League clubs alone forked out an enormous £1.1billion for new players – but which club has spent the most over the years?
The top three biggest spenders in Europe since 2016 are all premier league clubs – but can you guess which?
According to data obtained by the CIES Football Observatory, the top spending team is… Manchester City, who have spent a staggering £867m since 2010.
The likes of Yaya Toure, Sergio Aguero and Kevin DeBruyne arrived in that time – but so did the less successful Eliaquim Mangala and Wilfred Bony.
Chelsea are in a close second with £737m, while Paul Pogba’s Man United are third with £712m.
Liverpool, Arsenal and Tottenham also splashed the cash, and spent £900m between then since 2010.
Outside of the UK, the biggest spending clubs were – perhaps unsurprisingly – Barcelona and PSG.
It’s also been revealed that Liverpool made a huge £374m in transfers during that time, thanks chiefly to the sale of Luis Suarez to Barcelona for $65m in 2014.
The club comes top when it comes to transfer income, with Valencia, Juventus, Tottenham, Barcelona and Southampton also taking in big money.
Manchester United’s new star man Paul Pogba became the most expensive player in the world earlier this year, although Jamie Carragher really isn’t a fan.
