Over 2,000 million euros in spending: the Premier League’s huge portfolio mobilizes the transfer market

Last Thursday the transfer window closed in Europe’s major leagues and England beat the rest. The five clubs that spent the most and eight of the 10 most expensive players of the period came from the English top flight.

Last Thursday, the transfer window was closed in the major leagues in Europe. More movements, less movements, the concrete thing is that the English Premier League has once again revealed the economic power it has had for years. With a clear difference compared to other elite competitions of the Old Continent.

The English tournament, the most attractive in the world (due to its level, competitiveness and full stadiums, among other factors), broke all spending records in a summer market, with a figure of 2,200 million euros (2,190 million dollars), according to the assessment carried out by the consulting firm Deloitte. It is a growth of 67% compared to the same period in 2021, and 34% more than the spending record in a full season, if winter markets are also included.

The financial strength of British Premier League teams puts them in a dominant position. This year, they will exceed 7,000 million euros (over $6,900 million) in revenue, according to the aforementioned Deloitte, more than double that of their pursuers, the Spanish La Liga and the German Bundesliga. This 2,200 million implies that almost half of the transfer movement (49%) in the five major leagues was produced by England. It triples Series A, the second in the standings, with 749.2 million.

Carlo Ancelotti, coach of Real Madrid, the last European champions, has acknowledged that the Prime Minister is one step ahead of the rest of UEFA’s top competition. I don’t know when it’s gonna end started. “The goal for all leagues, not just Spain, is to get closer to them by improving the quality of play, the atmosphere, new stadiums, without violence. The Premier has come a long way with the sale of television rights, he has beaten the other leagues. The atmosphere is very good, with full and functional stadiums. They have an advantage and the objective of the others must be to improve these aspects above all,” added the Italian DT winner.

Of the 10 clubs that have spent the most on this market, the top five are English according to data from Transfermarkt. These are Chelsea (281.99 million), Manchester United (238), West Ham (182), Tottenham (169.9) and the surprising Nottingham Forest (161.95). This is one of the most striking things about the scale, as it is one of the recently promoted to honor sharing. They exceed the investment of Barcelona (153), PSG (147.5) and Manchester City (139.5), to name a few European giants.

The players

The Premier League’s large portfolio is not just seen at clubs. It also stands out individually. Eight of the 10 most expensive signings in the recently closed market came from the English honor division. The one who has the honor to be the the best ladder made his triumphant debut for his new club this Sunday.

This is the Brazilian Antony, who moved from Ajax to Manchester United for the big sum of 95 million euros. The striker was the object of desire for Dutch coach Erik ten Hag, who had him in the Eredivisie, until he finally came to fruition. Team Scratch made their debut against Arsenal and scored in the Red Devils win, ending the unbeaten Gunners.

The second most valuable signing was French defender Wesley Fofana, joining Chelsea for €80.4million. It also highlights the arrival of Uruguayan Darwin Núñez in Liverpool, after having shone at Benfica. The Reds canceled 75 million of European currency for his letter. Also slipping into the top positions are Casemiro, who replaced Real Madrid with United; striker Alexander Isak, moved from Real Sociedad to Newcastle for 70 million, and Norwegian star Erling Haaland, Manchester City’s top scorer, for “only” 60 million.

In 2022, it will be 30 years since the start of the Premier League era. And the celebration was at the peak of millions.
