It is a natural result. Chelsea have become the most expensive club in Europe over the past five years.
On the 9th (Korean time), the British daily newspaper The Sun cited and reported statistics on the team with the most spending since the 2018-2019 season announced by the Center for International Sports Research (CIES). CIES reportedly surveyed the revenues and expenses of 100 teams. 먹튀검증
Number one was Chelsea. Chelsea has invested a whopping 665 million pounds (approximately 1.137 trillion won) over the past five years. Even during the days of Roman Abramovich’s owner, the amount of expenditure was appropriate, but after the Todd Boelli system, the spending has increased significantly. Chelsea opened their wallets properly in the transfer market last summer. Raheem Sterling, Wesley Popana, Kalidou Koulibaly, Marc Cucurella and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang spent close to 300 million euros. Boelli’s owner was criticized for playing the famous soccer game ‘Football Manager’ in real life.
Recruitment continued through the winter. In addition to the hijacking of Mikhailo Mudrik, who was likely to go to Arsenal, for 100 million euros, Benoit Badiacil, David Popana, Andriy Santos, and Marlo Gusto were added. Joao Felix was hired on loan at a tolerable player transfer fee. It didn’t end here. On the last day of the transfer window, Enzo Fernandez was signed for 121 million euros, the highest price in English Premier League history. He spent 600 million euros in just one season. As a result, Chelsea jumped to first place at once.
In second place is Manchester United, which spent £595 million, and in third place is Arsenal, which is actively reinforcing players under manager Mikel Arteta. Arsenal spent £483 million. Arsenal are leading this season and are seeing a return on their investment. Tottenham, known as a salty, came in fourth with 423 million pounds.
Excluding Juventus, who placed ninth, nine clubs in the top 10 were English Premier League teams. This is the part where you can see how big the EPL spends.
Conversely, the team with the most revenue was ‘Colossus’ Benfica. During this period, Benfica sold Fernandez, Darwin Nunes (Liverpool) and Ruben Dias (Man City) to make a profit of 329 million pounds (approximately 501.5 billion won).
