FC Barcelona and Real Madrid are two of the three clubs that have invested the most capital in the transfer market since 1970, according to GOAL. With a total expenditure of € 2,470.38M and € 2,405.40M, respectively, the two Spanish teams occupy the second and third places, behind Chelsea: the blues have spent a total of € 2,556.75M.
The following clubs are Manchester City (€ 2,400.39M) and Juventus (€ 2,313.19M), which complete the top 5. The rest of the list is configured by: Manchester United (€ 2,156.76M), Inter Milan (€ 2,107.53M), Liverpool (€ 1,775.95M), AC Milan (€ 1,715.04M) and PSG (€ 1,691.68M).
Just after the top 10 we find Atlético de Madrid, the third and last Spanish club that appears among the 20 teams that have invested the most in the transfer market since 1970. The rojiblancos, who are currently one of the teams with the greatest aspirations in LaLiga and in the Champions League, totaling € 1,517.04M.
The Premier governs in the investment of signings
The list of the 20 teams that have invested the most money in the history of the transfer market leaves some clear conclusions. Between them the tyranny of the Premier League: Chelsea, Manchester City, Manchester United and Liverpool appear in the top 10. But this figure rises to eight teams, where they appear Tottenham (€ 1,514.81M), Arsenal (€ 1,506.34M), Everton (€ 1,075.31M) and Newcastle United (€ 1,025.15M).
The rest of the major leagues share the list: in Serie A a total of five teams appear; in LaLiga, three; in Ligue 1; and in the Bundesliga, only one, Bayern München. Real Madrid and Barcelona led until the last summer market: Chelsea has made a pharaonic outlay to bring in Kai Havertz, Timo Werner, Hakim Ziyech or Romelu Lukaku, among others.
