Premier League clubs have already spent almost 500m euros on signings

Not even a month has passed since the #Champions_League final, which brought the last season to a close and the clubs of the five major European leagues are strengthening their team ahead of the 2022/23 campaign.

Premier League teams have already spent 448.99 million euros on transfers, but the rest of the leagues are not able to match that amount. No one can keep up with the English clubs who are flexing their financial muscle for yet another summer.

  • PREMIER LEAGUE: 448.49 million euros (37.11 percent)
  • SERIE A: 284.388 million euros (23.53 percent)
  • BUNDESLIGA: 218.68 million euros (18.09 percent)
  • LALIGA: 141.80 million euros (11.73 percent)
  • LIGUE 1: 115.15 million euros (9.52 percent)
  • TOTAL SPENDING: 1.208,508 million euros

Clubs from the top five leagues have invested 1.208 billion euros in signings, with the Premier League teams having spent 37.11 percent of this amount.

A total of 122 signings have been already made, with Serie A clubs spending 284.388m euros (23.53 per cent), followed by Bundesliga teams (218.68m euros, 18.09 percent), LaLiga Santander clubs (141.80m euros, 11.73 percent) and Ligue 1 teams (115.15m euros, 9.52 per cent).

There is still time before the transfer window ends, but, for the times being, the Premier League has the upper hand. At the current rate, English clubs could reach the 1.3 billion euros they spent last season on transfers.

The capital available to Premier League clubs is the result of their very evenly spread television rights income and a high percentage of millionaire owners with the ability to spend big.

Owners such as Leicester City‘s Ayawatt Srivaddahanaprabba, Tottenham Hotspur‘s Joe Lewis and Daniel Levy, Aston Villa‘s Nassef Sawiris, Arsenal‘s Stan Kroenke or Manchester City‘s Mansour are making sure that there is certain capital invested in building their teams.

Six of the 10 most expensive signings have been made by Premier League clubs. It’s Darwin Nunez‘s move from Benfica to Liverpool for 75m euros, Erling Haaland from Dortmund to Manchester City for 60m euros, Fabio Vieira from Porto to Arsenal for 35m euros, Nayef Aguerd from Rennes to West Ham, also for 35m euros, Brenden Aaronson from Salzburg to Leeds United for 32.84m euros and Diego Carlos from Sevilla to Aston Villa for 31m euros.

Tchouameni’s signing

However, the most expensive signing so far has been made by Real Madrid, who brought in Aurelien Tchouameni from Monaco for 80m euros. The other three moves included in the list’s 10 most expensive signings are those of Federico Chiesa to Juventus for 40m euros, Nuno Mendes to Paris Saint-Germain for 38m euros and Sadio Mane to Bayern Munich for 32m euros.

LaLiga would be at the bottom of the list had it not been for Tchouameni’s signing, as the rest of the Spanish teams have spent just 61.80m euros.

The Spanish league has established their own financial control system in their bid to guarantee the sustainability of the competition and its own clubs by reviewing their financial situations.

Serie A spending rises

The rest of the leagues are also trailing the Premier League and only Serie A seems to be keeping pace. In total, Italian clubs have spent 284.388 million euros, with Atalanta being the only Serie side making the top 10 of the list with the teams who have spent the most this summer.

Liverpool are the club who have spent the most so far, having invested 85.79m euros to sign Nunez, Fabio Carvalho and Calvin Ramsay. Real Madrid come second with 80m euros and there are another four teams in the top 10.

However, spending big does not guarantee success for the Premier League clubs, as Real Madrid won the Champions League, Eintracht Frankfurt the Europa League and Roma the Conference League last season.
