Clubs that spend the most money – PlayOn99 News



What are the clubs that spent the most in the last decade? Enter and find out the teams that had the worst and best balance from 2012 to today in the major European leagues.

The economic cost in signings has become a headache for the clubs and not because of finding the footballer who best fits the needs of the team, but, to that, has been added the need to balance the accounts with the salary masses and not go beyond the financial fair play.

The transfer market, far from stagnating, continues to be talked about. The activity in the offices has been frenetic, as has been seen in the last two market windows, and the transfers and assignments have not stopped taking place.

Thus, and with the aim of taking stock and seeing which teams have balanced their accounts the most, the CIES Football Observatory has drawn up a ranking of the teams that have had the most net spending in the last ten seasons, balancing their coffers between the money spent for signings and received for transfers.

The study, in which, according to the platform itself, possible additional fees included in the offers have been taken into account, regardless of their actual payment, as well as the income derived from the sales fees, leaves no room for doubt: the two teams that most have had since last summer 2012 were Manchester United and Manchester City.

The Red Devils spent 1,545 million euros and have received 470 million euros, while the citizen paid out 1,699 million euros, but have earned 715 million, that is, a balance of -984 million.

Without going any further, this past summer, Manchester City bought Jack Grealish for a figure of 117 million euros, making him the most expensive player in the history of the Premier League.

For its part, and although the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo to Manchester United was the most mediatic for Manchester United, we must not forget that they paid 85 million euros for Jadon Sancho.

As a symptom that it is in the Premier League where the most is spent in general terms, it is also in the British Isles where the expense is more compensated with the sale of players.

The clearest example is from Chelsea – which even paid 115 million for Romelu Lukaku to Inter Milan – which has spent 1,614 million since 2012, but received 1,201 in transfers, including that of Eden Hazard to Real Madrid for which he received more than 100 million of euros.

It must also be understood that the English clubs that play in the country’s highest category receive a much higher figure than those in other leagues and distribute it in a more equitable way.
