Chelsea Tops The List Of The Ten Biggest Spenders In This Summer’s Transfer Window.

The 2022 summer transfer window is well and truly over following Thursday’s deadline day deals which saw various clubs scramble to finalize last-minute sales and incomings.

At the end, Chelsea emerged the highest spenders having forked out approximately $310.2 million to recruit new players for this season.

The Blues lost two forwards in Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner but still managed to bring in established attackers like Raheem Sterling and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Todd Boehly also splashed the cash on future prospects Carney Chukwuemeka and Cesare Casadei coupled with few defensive reinforcements after the departures of Antonio Rudiger, Marcos Alonso and Andreas Christensen.

Manchester United are second on the list, spending a total of $261.8m on 4 players whilst signing two more on loan and for free, respectively.

So far, Eriksen, Malacia, Lisandro Martinez and Casemiro have all impressed for the Red Devils, with Antony and Martin Dubravka expected to follow suit.

Surprisingly, West Ham United place third on this chart after parting ways with $200.2m used in strengthening David Moyes’ squad.

Tottenham Hotspur ($186.9m) are fourth while Premier League newcomers Nottingham Forest (fifth) set a new English record for most signings (21) made in a single transfer window, surpassing the previous record held by Crystal Palace (17).

Despite their obvious financial struggles, Barcelona (sixth) somehow signed 8 players which was made possible by selling off the fringe players and activating their economic levers.

Paris Saint Germain (seventh) had a quite transfer window by spending $162.2m only, probably because of Financial Fair Play rules while Man City (eighth) recruited the likes of Erling Braut Haaland, Julian Alvarez and Manuel Akanji for $153.4m.

Bayern Munich and Wolves occupy the last two spots having spent $151.2m and $150.3m respectively in the just concluded transfer window.
