Premier League clubs spend lavishly.
The English league’s summer spending record has just been broken. Thus, the previous figure of 1.4 billion pounds sterling, dating from 2017, is now obsolete, exceeded by the jackpot of 1.5 billion pounds, squandered since the 1er august. And this, while there is one week left in the transfer window and the teams still have files on fire. In reference, in 2021, at the same time, the amount was only 895 million. This increase would be linked in particular to the recording of numerous transfers estimated at more than 30 million (14, compared to 8 in 2021).
die #PremierLeague ist bei den Transfers mittlerweile in eigenen Sphären unterwegs. Das war nicht immer so. In diesem Sommer könnten #Chelsea, #NFFC #MCFC #MUFC #Arsenal #THFC #LFC dafür sorgen, dass erstmals die 2-Milliarden-Marke fallt. #Transfermarkt https://t.co/GOkU1CAqD9

“The record levels of spending we have seen so far in this summer transfer window provide a sign that Premier League club business models are rebounding from Covid” said Chris Wood, deputy director of Deloitte’s Sports Business Group.
And it does not exceed two billion? Little players.
