10 clubs that spent the most on transfers so far this summer

10 clubs that spent the most on transfers so far this summer

10. Liverpool €112m

The Reds split this sum across just two midfield arrivals: Alexis Mac Allister and Dominik Szoboszlai. More signings are expected as the Reds still need a Fabinho replacement and are light at centre-back and right-back.

9. Newcastle €116m

Sandro Tonali and Harvey Barnes make up the bulk of Newcastle's expenses this summer but they also signed 18-year-old Yankuba Minteh for what some might call pocket change (€8m) for their owners.

8. Man United €116.7

The Red Devils are about to surge into the top 3 once Rasmus Hojlund becomes official. Until then, United's only additions this summer are Mason Mount and Andre Onana.

7. RB Leipzig €126m


Leipzig have spent €43m on Lens centre forward Lois Openda (21 goals last season) and €24m on attacking midfielder Christoph Baumgartner. Then of course you have these *cough cough* transfers from RB Salzburg: striker Benjamin Sesko and central midfielder Nicolas Seiwald, for €24m and €20m respectively.

Finally, there's an 18-year-old El Chadaille Bitshiabu from PSG's academy for €15m.

6. Real Madrid €128.5m

Jude Bellingham, Arda Guler, Fran Garcia (and Joselu on loan) and it looks like the transfer window is done for Real Madrid. Unless...

5. Tottenham €136.3m

The North London club has made a bunch of additions for new head coach Ange Postecoglou, James Maddison and Guglielmo Vicario in the first place. Manor Solomon would've cost them some money but they got him for free because FIFA allows players from Russia and Ukraine to unilaterally end their contracts.

Spurs also turned loan moves Pedro Porro and Dejan Kulusevski into permanent transfers.

4. Paris Saint-Germain €159.5

PSG keep spending money on all that shines: a tackling machine Manuel Ugarte, underperforming Lucas Hernandez, Neymar's new best friend Kang-in Lee and Xavi Simons who they kind of want back every other year only to send him on loan. Marco Asensio and Milan Skriniar joined for free.

3. Al Hilal €178m

It took so long to find a Saudi club in here and we promise they're the only one.

Saudi clubs pay exorbitant wages but their transfer fees are pretty regular.

2. Chelsea €229m

As we were writing this post, Chelsea confirmed the signing of Axel Disasi, the fee is around €45m. This still doesn't hand the top spot to Todd Boehly's Chelsea Dodgers but the next transfer surely will.

So far they've signed Christopher Nkunku, Axel Disasi, Nicolas Jackson, Lesley Ugochuckwu, Angelo and a bunch of kids for the youth sides.

1. Arsenal €231.6m

Just three players: Declan Rice, Kai Havertz and Jurrien Timber and Arsenal are the ultimate bag wielders of the summer of 2023 -- so far.
