Clubs break spending records, surpassing €10 Billion in transfer fees

International football clubs have shattered spending records, shelling out a staggering €10.2 billion on new players during the current season. This marks the first time the €10 billion mark has been surpassed in a single season, eclipsing the previous record of €9.4 billion set in 2019/20, the season before the COVID-19 pandemic.

According to statistics from the online portal transfermarkt.de, the English Premier League once again leads the way in spending with €2.9 billion, followed by the French Ligue 1 (€1.1 billion). The Bundesliga is in fifth place with €833 million, just behind the Saudi Pro League, which makes its debut in the top spots.

Two German clubs also feature among the top spenders: Bayern Munich (ninth, €184 million) and RB Leipzig (10th, €176.5 million). The ranking is led by Chelsea (€467.8 million), Paris St. Germain (€389.5 million) and Al Hilal (€376.1 million). The ten most spendthrift clubs have collectively splashed out around €2.75 billion.
