Premier League dominates transfer market, Manchester City and Arsenal spend the most

Once again, the teams taking part in the Premier League have shown their dominance of the market, with Manchester City and Liverpool being the two most expensive names. According to Transfermarkt, Premier League clubs spent 772.35 million euros, followed by Serie A (355.68 million), Bundesliga (283.58 million), Ligue 1 (204.9 million) and La Liga (151.4 million).

No team in the Premier League has invested more than Manchester City ($108.75m), followed by Arsenal ($97.06m) and Tottenham ($87.2m). In addition, English clubs contributed 6 names to the top 10 most expensive football teams.

Darwin’s Premier League dominates the transfer market, with Manchester City and Arsenal spending the most.

Nunes was by far the most expensive signing as Liverpool paid Benfica €75m (excluding variable fees). Although it is currently the team that spends the most money on players, Anfield has just broken 85.79 million euros at this time, ranking fifth in the list of the most expensive clubs in Europe so far. .

The team leading the shopping list was Manchester City, when the reigning Premier League champions spent a total of 108.75 million euros, introducing Erling Haaland (60 million) and Calvin Phillips (48.75 million).

Manchester City are backed by two London teams, Arsenal and Tottenham – both of which have changed dramatically from the previous transfer period. A successful Champions League ticket has helped coach Antonio Conte get the backing of the BLD as he smashes his €87.2m safe to recruit new recruits. At the same time, Arsenal bosses also satisfied the determination to completely change coach Arteta when they spent 97.06 million euros to introduce rookies.

The top 5 non-Premier League teams are quite surprising. Dortmund has so far spent 86 million euros to strengthen the lineup to replace the position left by top striker Haaland.

The remaining names in the top ten are Leeds United ($80.64m), Real Madrid ($80m), Paris Saint-Germain ($79.5m), Newcastle United ($66m) and Atalanta ($63m).

Chelsea reach deal to recruit Sterling

Raheem Sterling has agreed a personal deal with Chelsea and is said to receive the highest salary in the squad. The striker also hopes to win the Ballon d’Or and the Champions League with the Blues.

According to the Telegraph, the striker, who earns £300,000 a week at Manchester City, will earn slightly more at Chelsea after agreeing to join London for £45 million.

And now, Sterling will be the club’s highest-paid player, ahead of N’Golo Kante on £290,000 a week. The 27-year-old will also be the No. 1 pick of the Todd Boley era.

Sterling will leave the Etihad Stadium after a successful seven years, where he made 339 appearances, scoring 131 goals and providing 95 assists. The 27-year-old forward spent a lot of time on the Manchester City bench last season. Guardiola has repeatedly selected other attacking players such as Phil Foden and Jack Grealish to replace him.

Leeds United find £20m replacement for Calvin Phillips

Leeds had to spend £20m to convince RB Leipzig to release Tyler Adams. This is Leeds United’s financial strength after just selling Phillips to Manchester City for £45m.

On Elland Road, Adams will be reunited with his old teacher, coach Jesse Marsh. However, he also met his American teammate Brendon Aronson.
