Foot PSG – The English take out the checkbook, the PSG is overwhelmed


After the summer transfer window closed, Paris Saint-Germain lost their place on the podium of the most expensive squads in Europe. Despite its significant expenditure, the capital club remains below three Premier League residents in this area.

The degreasing of Paris Saint-Germain also has effects on the statistics of CIES. This Monday, the European Football Observatory updated the ranking of the hardest-won squads. As a result, with the departures of players like Thilo Kehrer, Leandro Paredes and Julian Draxler, the capital club lost its place on the podium. The Parisian group, whose elements were recruited for a total of 847 million euros, including 191 million euros (including bonuses) spent this summer, now occupies fourth place.


It was Chelsea who settled on the last step of the podium. After its recruitment estimated at 333 million euros this summer, including 80 million euros spent on the Frenchman Wesley Fofana, the London club has a workforce valued at 881 million euros. It must be said that since 2013, Chelsea is the European team having spent the most on the transfer market (1.815 billion euros). This is more than FC Barcelona (1.811 billion euros), Manchester City (1.806 billion euros) and Paris Saint-Germain (1.459 billion euros).

PSG accused but…

Nevertheless, the two most expensively acquired workforce belong to Manchester City (1.064 billion euros) and its neighbor Manchester United (1.001 billion). To believe that the residents of the Premier League spend much more than Paris Saint-Germain, yet criticized in Europe because of its sports policy. The French champion is often accused of disrupting the market with crazy transfers. And yet, the CIES statistics and the operations carried out this summer show that the English are indeed the kings of spending.
